Lifetime Stand
By Cooder Graw
Tabbed by Larry Mofle
rmofle at

It's napkin numbers from a barroom queen
That leads to paper roses and dime store rings
  G                             D
A match made at the Midnight Rodeo
It's an angel sent straight from town
To bring this old cowboy down
G                      G/F#                 A
Off my high horse that I've been riding too long

Yeah, I've been looking for a lifetime stand
Down at the neon promised land
But no angel waiting at the pearly gate
Just a cover charge and ten minute wait
Just to go inside and drink all alone
Dance with a woman, try to take her home
      G                         E7  
Cause I've been spending all my time
              G               A              D  
Lookin' for a lifetime stand, one night at a time

It's make-up promises and lipstick lies
That hide the little things but can't disguise
In her eyes a shadow of the truth
I was dressed for love in a silver belly hat
She came like this and left like that
It doesn't add up but I was counting on someone new


         G             A
Well I'm just a single thirty-something man
Bm                              G
Coupled with all the hope I can stand
G                 A            Bm  
I've got a half a mind to go insane
        G                   A
But you never know what you never know
   Bm                            G
So Iíll just keep on dancin' and holdin' on
G                           A     G  A
Could be two steps from the pain

Correct - Ryan Adams is the original artist - I have the hidden track

-lmofle | 2/16/2005
at no angel wating at the pearl gate try an Em instead of Bm
-robertkeen | 3/15/2005
Thanks - fixed it - subtle change...

-lmofle | 5/14/2005
You also can do a sorta step down between the G and the E7 like G D/F# E7.
I mean it sounds good as it is but the base in the background does it so its just one more thing you can add. But great tab anyway. love the song.
