An Outlaw's Blues
By Chris Wall

         E                         A               E 
It was November the first, back in Nineteen Eighty Nine
  E                                    B
I opened a show for a bonafide hero of mine
     E                           A
Ever since I was a kid, I bought everything he did
  E                            A
I learned every lick and every line
         E                  B                E             
And that honky tonky hero became a friend of mine

He said you can't sing the blues if you never seen a cloudy day
If you ain't made the trip, then you sure canít show the way
You pay your fines and your dues and learn you learn a thing or two
You get bruised along the way
And life's too short to hang with the cats that just can't play

Old Hoss, the night I heard you were gone
I stayed up and drank, I played your records all night long

He said you can't write a song of love in a committee of three
And great tunes ain't made by the guys in the t-i-e
Oh man, he threw away control when he sang down in his soul
His words and his music set me free
Great tunes ain't made by the guys in the t-i-e


There's precious few left singing those outlaw blues
And we never had a choice, if we did well, we mighta refused
Ah, for better or for worse, it's a blessing or a curse
You pick up that old guitar
The music ain't what ya do son, it becomes what you are

Instead of B, I use B7. Chris Wall is one of the best songwriters of
all time, and he is on tour right now. 1/4/2003!!
