Too Lazy to Work (Too Nervous to Steal)
By Br549

       A
Well I met you in the middle of a bar room fight in a cheap motel on the Missouri side 
          E
I had you out in my car in the parking lot
A
Early next morning we were driving east headed for the big city where I felt at least
         E                                      A
We could enjoy the weather as long as we didnít talk 
G
Well I spoiled it my speaking my swirling head 
         E
And your grown up eyes turned to me and said 

Chorus:
             D
Thereís only one thing you got wrong with you 
   F#m
It ainít the whole world looking at you 
E
Why donít you find yourself a life thatís real 
                                 A 
Too lazy to work, too nervous to steal 
  
Well we got to the city and you got a job delivering the LL Bean Catalog 
I was bored and restless, didnít know where to go 
Now late one evening after I got up, my guitar and I found my way to a club 
I saw that queen of diamonds work that big dance floor 
Well she looked at me but I couldnít go 
That familiar face said do you wanna know 

Chorus
  
Bridge:
B                                           A
You gave me 24 hours to pack up my bags and glide
F#m                                           E
No oneís got respect for a man going over the side 
  
Well you went back to the station to make sure I was gone,
That bus was on time you didnít have to wait long 
I saw the bright lights of Nashville disappear behind me 
Well that greyhound was cool after the summer heat,
I could still see your face from my window seat 
I was so happy to see your crooked smile of relief  
But after miles and miles of that highwayís drone 
I  hear the last thing you said when we were all alone 

Chorus
