Goold Old American Guest
M. Haggard
Album: Big City


INTRO: C

          C
Well I'm longin' to ride on a freight train
       F                         C
Pull a slouch hat down low on my ears
C
I'm yearnin' to leave this old town on the fly
    D                        G
And lose all my troubles and cares
C
In this day of airplanes and highways
F                                  C
Hey, the slow way is sometimes the best
F                                C      Am 
I'm longin' to ride on a freight train
         F           G     C
And be a good old American guest


CHORUS:
               C
Yes, I want to live off the land that I've loved and I've labored for
    F                       C
And spend a few days headin' west
F                        C              Am
I'm longin' to ride on a freight train
         F          G      C
And be a good old American guest


SOLO


Well the pressures of life, they got to me
And they got down deep in my soul
I'm tired of the rat race, wanna go back to the slow pace
And hear a fast freight rattle and roll
I wanna live out my days like a hobo
And take myself a long needed rest
Hey hey, I'm longin' to ride on a freight train
And be a good old American guest


CHORUS

F                      C     Am
I'm longin' to ride on a freight train
         F        G    C    F   G   C
And be a good old American guest
