Errol's Song
Adam Carroll



  D                     G
Mr. Errol he lives on the banks of Lake Arthur
           D                                              
Where your windshield gets foggy, where your back roads 
 A
unwind
        D                            G
Itís a long way from Shreveport, not too far from Gueydan
         D                      A        D
And itís close to the home that I left behind
         D                      A        D
Yah itís close to the home that I left behind

    D                        G
Mr. Errolís a father, heís a farmer, heís a hunter
       D                                        A
And he talks to the ducks and the geese and the blind
         D                          G
He works hard for the lives that he helps to make better
       D                             A         D
And he lives by the graveyard of the rusted combines

    G                       D
And he held my hand when my boots got too heavy
         G                               D       A
With the mud from the rice fields coming to my behind
   D                         G           D
We set out the decoys in the dark on the levy
       D                                   A         D
And we walked through the graveyard of the rusted combines

        D                          G
Thereís coffee and biscuits on the stove in the kitchen
          D                                            A
Thereís a crack in the ceiling and a screened in front door
           D                           G
And as the fog starts to settle on the banks of Lake Arthur
      D                                A            G
I can still taste the whiskey from the night just before
         D                            A            G
Itís the Crown Royal whiskey from the night just before

         G                 D
And itís hard to get up at five in the morning
         G                               D         A
Put your guns, put your shells, put your wine in a sack
        D                        G
We look like some militia in our boots and our camo
       D                          A            G
With a bird dog named Milo, heís asleep in the back

G                       D
He held my hand when my boots got too heavy
         G                               D       A
With the mud from the rice fields coming to my behind
   D                         G           D
We set out the decoys in the dark on the levy
       D                                   A         D
And we walked through the graveyard of the rusted combines

    D                    G
The combineís a monster, combineís a saviour
        D                                       A
Looking down at the blades I can see heaven and hell
     D                            G
Cold steel cut the rice crops for acres and acres
     D                      A        D
Bill how many barrels?  Man I cannot tell
     D                     A        D
Bill how many dryers?  Man I cannot tell

         D                           G
From the banks of Lake Arthur to the Mermentau River
        D                                  A
Thereís water as far as your good eyes can see
       D                       G
At the Lake Arthur bar all the old men get rowdy
         D                           A          D
They got bottles of whiskey that are older than me

G                       D
He held my hand when my boots got too heavy
         G                               D       A
With the mud from the rice fields coming to my behind
   D                         G           D
We set out the decoys in the dark on the levy
       D                                   A         D
And we walked through the graveyard of the rusted combines

D                      G
Sometimes I dream of a girl in a pickup
         D                                A
With her window rolled down and her radio on
        D                          G
And you look at the cypress on the Highway 190
        D                     A          D
And you give her away and you sing Jole Blon
        D                     A          D
And you give her away and you sing Jole Blon

        D                        G
And Mr. Errolís a good friend he never a stranger
       D                                        A
When I come back it seems like Iíve always been here
          D                        G
Thereís a sign in his kitchen itís written in French
        D                          A          D
ďIf you run out of Schlitz, youíve run out of beerĒ

G                       D
He held my hand when my boots got too heavy
         G                               D       A
With the mud from the rice fields coming to my behind
   D                         G           D
We set out the decoys in the dark on the levy
       D                                   A         D
And we walked through the graveyard of the rusted combines
