Lyle Lovett

Capo 3rd fret

That picture hangin' on the wall
     F      C/E        C (see riff below)
Was painted by a friend
   C                          Em
He gave it to me all down and out
F        C/E    G    
When he owed me ten
It doesn't look like much I guess
          F         C/E     C
But it's all that's left of him
       C                 Em
And it sure is nice from right over here
          F         C/E   G
When the light's a little dim

Step inside this house girl
     F        C/E    C
I'll sing for you a song
C                              Em
I'll tell you 'bout just where I've been
F            C/E      G
It shouldn't take too long
I'll show you all the things that I own
F            C/E       C
My treasures you might say
C                                    Em
It couldn't be more than ten dollars worth
F             C/E   G
They brighten up my day

This book of poems was given me
By a girl I used to know
I guess I read it front to back
Fifty times or so
It's all about the good life
And stayin' at ease with the world
It's funny how I love that book
And I never loved that girl


Now you hold this piece of glass
Up to the light that's shinin' through the door
It's a prism glass I found it on the road
Can't you see that tiny rainbow
It's not really a prism I guess
Its just kind of broke a funny way
I was on my way through Houston
And I was headed for L.A.


This guitar was given me 
By old man Thomas Gray
It's not too much to look at
But I play it every day
It's been across this country
Four or five times I guess
Between me and old man Tom
It never got much rest


Well that's just about all I own
All I care to I guess
Except this pair of boots maybe
And that funny yellow vest
And that leather jacket and that leather bag
And that hat hangin' on the wall
Just so it's not too much to carry babe
Could I see you again next Fall
