Gear And Dust
By Jason Boland

Intro chords
D  G  A   D  A  G  D

I left home the day I turned eighteen
And mama begged me not to go
I left her crying on the front porch
And then the road became my home
I found a way to make some money fast   
                           G    G/F# Em
A night in a hotelís all I need
Iíd read the bible and talk to Jesus
Every night While I cooked speed
G            D             Bm       
Gear and dust turns new to rust
A                               D
I canít trust the people that I meet
Yeah making gear and dust
                     D      A  G  D
I hardly ever get to sleep

Deals were easy in the truckstops
And the dancehalls were the same
Lord I knew it wasnít honest
But I kept on playing Franklinís game
I saved some money and started thinking
That I might head down to the coast
Quit all this over-shoulder looking 
And try my luck out on a boat

I met a drifter on the highway
I had less cash than he had hate
He left me lying in a bar ditch 
Somewhere beside the interstate
When youíre dead itís not really over
Some say theyíve even seen my ghost
At a roadside up in Guthrie
Lord knows thatís where I sold the most
Making gear and dust
They finally laid me down to sleep

I don't here the G/F# Em in the second half of the verse, nor do I
here th Bm in the chorus. Other than that, great tab.
