DRUNKEN POET'S DREAM
HAYES CARLL
TROUBLE IN MIND
Tabbed By: Stoney

A                     D       A
IVE GOT A WOMAN, SHES WILD AS ROME
A                              D     A
SHE LIKES TO LAY NAKED AND BE GAZED UPON
    E                                    D
SHE CROSSES A BRIDGE AND THEN SETS IT ON FIRE
A                      D         A
LANDS LIKE A BIRD ON A TELEPHONE WIRE

WINE BOTTLES SCATTERED LIKE LAST NIGHTS CLOTHES
CIGARETTES, PAPERS AND DOMINOES
SHE LAUGHS FOR A MINUTE ABOUT THE SHAPE IM IN
SAYS, YOU BE THE SINNER HONEY AND ILL BE THE SIN


CHORUS:
E
IM GONNA HOLLER AND IM GONNA SCREAM
D
IM GONNA GET ME SOME MESCALINE
    E
SHE BRINGS ME ROSES AND A PLACE TO LEAN
D                      A  D A
A DRUNKEN POETS DREAM

optional live verse:
I BELIEVE MY HARP'S GOT A BUSTED REED
MY LIPS ARE RAGGED AND ABOUT TO BLEED
WELL SHE TASTES LIKE PILLS AND CHEAP COLOGNE
TELLS ME I DONT EVER HAVE TO DRINK ALONE

THERES SOME MONEY ON THE TABLE
AND A PISTOL ON THE FLOOR
SOME OLD PAPER BACK BOOKS OF LOUIS L'AMOUR
SHE SAYS, HONEY DONT WORRY BOUT JUDGMENT DAY
ALL THESE PEOPLE GOIN TO HEAVEN THEYRE JUST IN OUR WAY

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE:
    Bm
AND ALL MY LIFE I LAID AROUND 
          F#m
WHILE THE COLORS ALL TURNED BLUE
G
I CLOSED MY EYES AND FINALLY 
          E
FOUND IT BROUGHT ME BACK TO YOU

IVE GOT A WOMAN, SHES WILD AS ROME
SHE LIKES TO LAY NAKED AND BE GAZED UPON
SHE CROSSES A BRIDGE AND THEN SETS IT ON FIRE
LANDS LIKE A BIRD ON A TELEPHONE WIRE

REPEAT CHORUS

Great Song! Easy to play. but there is a verse missing. Watch the video on the above link and you can hear it. Good job on the tab! This is a great song.

I'm surprised he didn't include that extra verse on the album version. It's catchy.
-petstupid | 2/4/2009
Yeah I like that verse, I'd never heard it before. In the video, he's playing capo 2, with G and C and D, but I can't figure out the bridge, it sounds like it goes to Am, then something and the build up is on D, but I like how you have it too.
-txmusicplyr | 2/12/2009
glad you found it helpful...I noticed I had a few quirks in the bridge...the D should be a G, and I meant for it to say F#m instead of Fm.....if you want to play it capo II the bridge is Am Em F D.
-petstupid | 2/12/2009
good job on the tab. only thing i see is the verse where you say hearts got a busted reed. it's actually HARPS's got a busted reed. Harp referring to his harmonica. other that that good stuff.
-blueridgepckn | 12/3/2010
I think a lot of the confusion is that although Hayes and Ray co wrote the song they both seem to do it a little differently, also I have heard RWH do it several different ways, almost like he can't remember how, mixes the verses up and sometimes mixes verses together (i.e. sings 1 line of a verse then 2 lines of another and then back to the first one) Too much alcohol in the drunken poet's dream??
