Clay Pigeons
Done by John Prine
On the "Fair & Square" album
Originally written by Blaze Foley
on his album: Live At The Austin Outhouse


          C
Iím going down to the greyhound station
           F
Gonna get a ticket to ride
     C
Gonna find that lady with 2 or 3 kids
       G
And sit down by her side
   C                                                   
And ride until the sun comes up and  
                    F
Down around me about 2 or 3 times
       C
Smoking cigarettes in the last seat
G
Trying to hide my sorrow from the people I meet
       C
And get along with it all
        F
Whenever people say Yíall
      C
Sing a song with a friend
          G
Change the shape that Iím in
       C
And get back in the game
         F            C
And start playing again 

C
Iíd like to stay but I might have to go to 
     F
Start over again
          C
I might go back down to Texas I might go 
             G
Somewhere that Iíve never been
       C
And get up in the morning and go out at night
          F
And I wonít have to go home
          C
Get used to being alone
         G
Change the words to this song
        C             F  C
And start singing again 

            C
Iím tired of running round looking for answers 
                   F
To questions that I already know
       C
I could build me a castle of memories 
            G
Just to have somewhere to go
         C
Count the days and the nights that it 
                        F
takes to get back in the saddle again
        C
Feed the pigeons some clay
        G
Turn the night into day
     C                  F                C
Start talking again if I know what to say 

          C
Iím going down to the greyhound station
           F
Gonna get a ticket to ride
     C
Gonna find that lady with 2 or 3 kids
       G
And sit down by her side
   C                                                   
And ride until the sun comes up and  
                    F
Down around me about 2 or 3 times
       C
Smoking cigarettes in the last seat
G
Trying to hide my sorrow from the people I meet

       C
And get along with it all
                F
Going down where people say Y'all
        C
Feed the pigeons some clay
        G
Turn the night into day
     C                  F                C
Start talking again if I know what to say

Nice, in "C" on your CD?

This is done in "C" by Blaze Foley, on his "Outhouse Sessions" CD.
Have not figured out what key John Prine does it in, but different.
-deacondave2 | 9/5/2005
I think it's in Bb.
-macg1 | 9/25/2005
