Lone Star Blues
Written by Gary Nicholson & Delbert McClinton
Recorded by George Strait
Album: Here For A Good Time (2011)

(Capo on 2)

Intro.:  (D) x 8 bars

At a (D)truck stop in St Angelo, saw a (G)bill board about this rodeo
This (A)weekend out in El Paso, so I signed up to (D)ride

I drew a bull called "original (D7)sin," heard he'd (G)killed a couple of men
Figured this was (A)something I could win, 'cause the devil was on my (D)side

I was havin' myself one (D7)hell of a ride, but I (G) ended up disqualified
(A) That bull just up and died, before they blew the (D)whistle

With them (D)north Texas (D7)blues, thought I'd (G)paid all my dues
And them (A)south Texas blues told me, "Son, you ain't (D)through"
Had the east Texas (D7)blues and the (G)west Texas too
I've done (A)all I know to do, tryin' to lose, tryin' to lose these ol' Lone Star (D)Blues

Inst.:  |(A)|(A)|(A)|(A)|(A)|(A)|(D)|(D)

Well, I got laid (D)off at Brown and (D7)Rue, then on my (G)way back to cuttin' chute
I lost my (A)wrist watch and my boots, shootin' dice with a dude from (D)Houston

Well, there ain't no jobs here workin' (D7)cattle, so I got on the (G)part time haulin' gravel
With some (A)outfit from Seattle out here buildin' custom (D)homes

Repeat Chorus

Steel Gtr.  |(D)|(D)|(G)|(G)|(A)|(A)|(A)|(D)|(D)|
Fiddle      |(D)|(D)|(G)|(G)|(A)|(A)|(A)|(D)|(D)

Well, I gassed my (D)truck and I packed my clothes, turned in my (G)key and I hit the road
I said, "(A)Cow town's where I'll go, you never know, I might get (D)lucky!"

Well, I got a friend there turnin' (D7)knobs at a (G)place called Billy Bobs
Said he (A)thought he could get me a job there workin' as a (D)bouncer

First night on the job was just in-(D7)sane, some ol' (G)boy got all deranged
Hit me in the (A)head with a Harley chain to this day, my ears still (D)ring!

Repeat Chorus

I've done (A)all I know to do, tryin' to lose, tryin' to lose these ol' Lone Star (D)Blues

Outro.:  |(A)|(A)|(A)|(A)|(A)|(A)|(D)|(D) -----
