Billy Joe Shaver
WHEN THE WORD WAS THUNDERBIRD 


Verse 1:
      Am
 	 Up every morning at the crack of dawn
      G  
 	 Nights as short as the days are long
         D                                 Em  
 	 Life turned out to be another magazine
      Am   
 	 Livin' with a stranger now
      G
 	 Girl i knew got away somehow
         D                             Em  
 	 She went out with two bit gasoline

 	 On the go,back - you know what i mean

 	 
Chorus:
             Am                        
 	 Now when the word was Thunderbird
      G 
 	 And the price recorded twice
      D                                  Em
 	 Drinkin' wine and lovin' you was fun


Verse 2:
      Am
 	 Ah,but love turned out to be a passin' thing
      G 
 	 Different bird of a different wing
         D                                  Em  
 	 Some damn fool put a dollar twenty nine

 	 On a jug of Thunderbird wine
             Am       
 	 And Lord i don't know if i'm gonna make it
         G
 	 Don't know if i'll have the strength to take it
         D                             Em
 	 Everything's hung up in yesterday


Verse 3:
      Am
 	 There's you a secret-minded social girl
         G
 	 Takin' short cuts in a woman's world
         D                                    Em   
 	 She won't let her hair down when i'm home
          Am  
 	 Society's just slavery
             G
 	 And security is killing me
         D                                     Em
 	 I work hard for it but i give it all away

 	 If i could go back to yesterday


Chorus (x2).

Hey, could anyone put in the chords between the verses and chorus. You know like the way it's played on Somewhere in the Middle.
