Billy Joe Shaver

Verse 1:
  Dm D5    Dm                      C/G
 	 To evergreen fields of my youth i will sing
            Bb                         A    
 	 My steps left no footprints behind
            Dm                       C/G  
 	 No fruit of the harvest lent weight to my pockets
               Bb                         A 
 	 Small knowledge was stowed in my mind
             F                      Dm   
 	 Now youth has forsaken this old man
            F                        Dm
 	 My seasons are numbered by three
            F                            Dm  
 	 No seeds have been sown in the plowed fields
                       C/G        Dm
 	 No harvest is waiting for me

Verse 2:
         Dm                       C/G 
 	 A cripple for life is the fate of the loner
             Bb                         A
 	 No fruit will be borne by his tree
               Dm                             C/G  
 	 These foughts pierce my mind while in echoes of memories
            Bb                           A  
 	 A young voice too late calls to me
              F                              Dm    
 	 Come run through my dream fields,you old man
          F                       Dm  
 	 Search beyond your windowsill
            F                            Dm   
 	 Go touch my high moutains and valleys
                             C/G        Dm   
 	 Come sleep 'neath my evergreen fields
