Stuff That Works
Guy Clark

I got an olí blue shirt 
    F                C
And it suits me just fine 
I like the way it feels 
So I wear it all the time 
I got an old guitar 
It wonít ever stay in tune 
I like the way it sounds 
    G              C
In a dark and empty room 

I got an olí pair of boots 
And they fit just right 
I can work all day 
And I can dance all night 
I got an olí used car 
And it runs just like a top 
I get the feeliní it ainít 
Ever gonna stop 

C          F                 C
Stuff that works, stuff that holds up 
C                     G                C
The kind of stuff you donít hang on the wall 
C           F               C
Stuff thatís real, stuff you feel 
    C                 G                 C
The kind of stuff you reach for when you fall 

I got a pretty good friend 
Whoís seen me at my worst 
He canít tell if Iím a blessing 
Or a curse 
But he always shows up 
When the chips are down 
Thatís the kind of stuff 
I like to be around 


I got a woman I love 
Sheís crazy and paints like God 
Sheís got a playground sense of justice 
She wonít take odds 
I got a tattoo with her name 
Right through my soul 
I think everything she touches 
Turns to gold
