One Paper Kid
By Guy Clark
Written by Guy Clark
Album: Guy Clark (1978)
Tabbed by Larry Mofle

D           D/C#        Bm             Bm/A
Cowboys and Indians and trees he could climb
  G                        A
Tomorrow came too fast but he didn't mind
       D            D/C#     Bm        Bm/A
Ah the distance was short so light it again
   G                     A           D  
It don't take no time to get where I am

    G                    D         Bm   
But one paper kid wasn't really so mean
            A                       D 
He's just a little bit scared and a little bit green
         G                        D        Bm
And he'd heard of a place, it was legal to dream 
      D            D/C#        Bm         Bm/A  
So he sat with his coffee in a blue Texas wind
    G                    Bm                  A        D
And wrote on a rock, the one paper kid, he's rolling again

Ah, the driver was drunk or he just didn't see
The future was there. it'll happen to me
And all the time that he'd wasted was his once again
Ah, it never takes too long to go where you've been

        Bm                          A
There's broken hearts scattered all over the past
G                 D
Old glad memories trying to last
Bm                    A 
Whiskey and women and growing up fast
G                      A
Fussing and loving and itching like grass

Hell that one paper kid wasn't really so mean
Just a little bit weird cause times were so lean
Now he's gone to a place where it's legal to dream
No Camels, no coffee, no cold morning winds
And it was writ on a rock, the one paper kid he's rolling again
      Bm                 A        D
Ah the one paper kid he's rolling again
