Billy Joe Shaver

Verse 1:
      F                                    C/G 
 	 The evening sun is sinking,moving homeward
                     Dm                           A
 	 As darkened shadows claim the fight they won
                      F                              C/G 
 	 With upturned eyes closed from the light of darkness
                         Dm         A7              Dm 
 	 And two crossed hands that raised another's son

Verse 2:
                 F                       C/G   
 	 Gone,oh gone the one who really loved me
                   Dm                       A
 	 For what i was not what i ought to be
                    F                          C/G    
 	 Who never questioned falling leaves in autumn
                    Dm         A7           Dm
 	 Nor silver nests built on a dying tree

Verse 3:
                    F                           C/G    
 	 In gingham gown she warmed me from the coldness
                    Dm                          A
 	 The winter nights seemed warm as summertime
 	  	  F                        C/G
 	 Another love will never touch as deeply
 	               Dm      A7              Dm     
 	 As love that flew on silver wings of time

Verse 4:
                    F                         C/G  
 	 On pension for the aged she raised a young man
                         Dm                     A  
 	 Who learned the love of God and other things
                      F                                C/G 
 	 Now,love he knew that twelve times warmed his winter
                    Dm     A7                 Dm     
 	 Has flown away on time's bright silver wings
