WELL I, TOOK UP WITH THIS FILLY LEGS THAT WOULDN’T QUIT—WE WENT

WINGS ON MY MONEY YOU KNOW AND WE WATCHED IT FLY AWAY

F/C                                                                                                      Bb       Bb7                             F          F7

MORE THAN I’VE MADE IN MY WHOLE DAMNED LIFE I DROPPED IT IN A SINGLE DAY

Bb          Dm                                       F                                  C

BUT THAT’S OKAY I GUESS THE WAGES BOUGHT THE SIN

Vs.2:

THEN THERE WAS THIS STRANGE FAST BIRD THE ROAD GONE LONG AND STRAIGHT

I HAD TO LEARN THE PASSWORD AND IT MUST HAVE BEEN MY FATE

I WAS BURNED IN THE BUSHES AND FROZEN IN THE SAND

IN THE MIDDLE OF ALL THE WATER IN THE WORLD I WAS DYING A THIRSTY MAN

IT’S WRITTEN IN THE BOOK IT’S TAUGHT IN ALL THE SCHOOLS

DON’T TAKE A SECOND LOOK DON’T BEND THE GOLDEN RULE

 

Ch. 2
