Out Here in the Middle
by Robert Earl Keen, Jr.

Written by: James McMurtry

Capo 4th fret
~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^

G                     D               C
They broke into your car last night, took your stereo.
G                D              C
Now you say you don't know why you even live there anymore.
G                        D            Em                     C  D  C
Garage man didn't see a thing so you guess it was an inside job...

G               D          C
You made reservations, a table for three.
G                     D                       C
They said you had to wait, somebody must've bribed the maitre d'.
     G                 D               C
The boss got mad and blamed it all on you...
     G           D     Em             C  D
The food was bad, the deal fell through.

   C                G             D               G
- Out here in the middle you can park it on the street,
C                G               D   
Skip up to the counter, nearly always get a seat.
C        G       D     Em
Nobody steals, nobody cheats...
C              G        D     C             G        D   C  G  D
Wish you were here, my love. Wish you were here, my love. -

G        D/F#             C
We got tractor pulls and Red Man chew.
G                   D/F#        C
Coporate relow(?) refugees who need love too.
G                 D/F#  Em            C   D  C
And we ain't seen Elvis in a year or two.
G         D/F#             C
We got justification for wealth and greed,
  G    D/F#                 C
"Amber waves of grain" and bathtub speed.
G                 D/F#     Em             C  D
Now we even got Starbucks, what else ya need?

   C                G                D               G
- Out here in the middle where the center's on the right
          C                 G              D  
And the ghost of William Jennings Bryan preaches every night.
 C                 G            D        Em
Save your lonely souls in the dashboard light.
C              G        D     C             G        D
Wish you were here, my love. Wish you were here, my love. -

C  G  D  C  G  D  C  G  D

   C                G                 D     G
- Out here in the middle where the buffalo roam
C                  G              D
We're puttin' up towers for youe cellphone.
C                   G                D          Em
And we screen all applicants with a fine-tooth comb.
C              G        D   
Wish you were here, my love (wish you were here, my love)
C              G        D   
Wish you were here, my love (wish you were here, my love)
C              G        D   
Wish you were here, my love (I wish you were here)
C              G        D   
Wish you were here, my love. 
C              G        D                         C   G   D
Wish you were here, my love (wish you were here...)

Thanks to the person who posted this. I fell in love with this song the first time I opened REK's new cd. Even though it's not his song, this is still one of the best on any of his cds.
