INTRO



      D
I was sittin' in a truckstop,
         G                D
Watchin' tumbleweeds roll by.

Tryin' to read the menu,
         A
When the waitress caught my eye.
D                    D/F#
 She pulled a pencil from her hair, 
    G
And leaned across the bar.  
D
I did my best not to stare,
    A                D    G/B  
But man, she made it hard.



  D
I asked that trucker next to me, 
     G                 D
Hey, what looks good today?
      
He said I know what's on your mind,
    A
And boy, there ain't no way.
D                  D/F#     
 Get yourself some apple pie,
    G
And something cool to drink.
  D 
I know you want the special, 
      A                D     D(add9)  D
And I like the way you think.



    G
But you can't have the waitress,
     D
Boy, everybody's tried.
          A
There's a cowboy down in Abilene,
    D
Who keeps her satisfied.
           G
They got a hundred acre dream 
               D      D/F#  G
That's gettin' closer every day.
       D        D/F#      G       G/B
Just a few more plates of ham and eggs,
      A               D   D/F#  G
And a few good rides away.



D
Hard times hit West Texas,
          G                D
Damn near everything's for sale.
              
But there's some things we hold sacred, 
     A    
When everything else fails. 
D                   D/F#          
 When we're down to nothing,
          G
Out here, everybody shares.
D
Most of us have lost our dreams, 
   A              D      Dsus  
So we bought into theirs.



     D
I've seen her walk a hundred miles,
G                D
Up and down this floor.
 
I've never seen her fail to smile,
     A                  
When he limps through that door.
D                         D/F#   
 So when you're done, you leave a tip,
    G
And make it nice and fat.
         D
And feel lucky you can own a piece,
   A              D   
Of something like that.



    G
But you can't have the waitress,
     D
Boy, everybody's tried.
          A
There's a cowboy down in Abilene,
    D
Who keeps her satisfied.
           G
They got a hundred acre dream 
               D      D/F#  G
That's gettin' closer every day.
       D        D/F#      G       G/B
Just a few more plates of ham and eggs,
      A               D  
And a few good rides away.


   G
No you can't have the waitress,
     D
Boy, everybody's tried.
          A
There's a cowboy down in Abilene,
    D
Who keeps her satisfied.
           G
They got a hundred acre dream 
               D      D/F#  G
That's gettin' closer every day.
       D        D/F#      G       G/B
Just a few more plates of ham and eggs,
      A               D   
And a few good rides away.
                D/F#      G
Just a few more plates of ham and eggs,
      A               D   D/F#  G  D
And a few good rides away.
