Title: Rock Springs To Cheyenne
Written by: Kip Attaway
Transcribed By: Brian Earl Haines


G                       Em              C           G
I don't think that I'll ever forget the winter of '72
G                     Em           C           D
It must have been the coldest year that I ever knew
G                 Em        C               G
I left my home in Dallas to head out for Idaho
G                    Em     C         D       G
Before I reached Colorado I hit three feet of snow


Chorus:
G                     D         C               G  
Singing Lord, let the wind blow you know I'm so cold
G            D                C                     D
Rock Springs to Cheyenne is a bad stretch I've been told
G                Em      C               G
2 o'clock in the morning on Thanksgiving Day
G                            D
It's a damn good thing I'm a God fearing man
C                   Em
I've been forced to pray
            G                     D            
Yeah it's a damn good thing I'm a God fearing man
C         D         G     Em  C  D  G
I've been forced to pray

G                           Em                  C                   G
There's a little dog riding by my side and he's shivering just like me
G                              Em                       C                       D
And Lord I'm kind of glad it's dark outside cause there really ain't nothing to see
G              Em             C                G
I kinda wish I had a radio to take my mind off you
G                              Em                           C           D       G
I got my hands on the wheel of something that's real and my fingers are turning blue


Chorus:
G                     D         C               G  
Singing Lord, let the wind blow you know I'm so cold
G            D                C                     D
Rock Springs to Cheyenne is a bad stretch I've been told
G                Em      C               G
2 o'clock in the morning on Thanksgiving Day
G                            D
It's a damn good thing I'm a God fearing man
C                   Em
I've been forced to pray
            G                     D            
Yeah it's a damn good thing I'm a God fearing man
C         D         G     Em  C  D  G
I've been forced to pray



G                     Em         C                G
I learned a lesson in Denver and again in San Antone
G               Em                          C                  D
There's lies in California and you know the truth's in Mountain Home
G                      Em                C                    G
How can you trust your brother, When you can't even trust yourself
G                               Em         C          D        G
And your love's what keeps your woman from being with somebody else


 Chorus:
G                     D         C               G  
Singing Lord, let the wind blow you know I'm so cold
G            D                C                     D
Rock Springs to Cheyenne is a bad stretch I've been told
G                Em      C               G
2 o'clock in the morning on Thanksgiving Day
G                            D
It's a damn good thing I'm a God fearing man
C                   Em
I've been forced to pray
            G                     D            
Yeah it's a damn good thing I'm a God fearing man
C         D         G     Em  C  D  G C G
I've been forced to pray

It should read "the truth's in Mountain Home."
