TUMBLEWEED TOWN
Trent Willmon
CD: Broken In

Capo 2nd Fret

Intro: (G) (D) (G) (A) x 2

He said I''''m (D) goin to west Texas
I said (G) hell you''''ve gone crazy
Ain''''t (D) nothing out there but (G) coyotes and Comanches
But he (D) headed out anyway as (G) far as he could
Till the heat finally got to his mules

He sold (D) whiskey and cigars to (G) passing through would-be settlers
But no(D)body wants to settle where there (G) ain''''t no damn water
Then they (A) figured out a (D) windmill could (G) pump it from the ground
And up sprang a tumbleweed town

  Where the (A) lonely wind (D) blows like it''''s (G) angry for being there
  A (A) flat piece of (D) stone in the (C) middle of (G) nowhere
  The (A) town never (D) grows cause no(G)body can keep their roots (Em) down
  (A) It''''s just a tumbleweed (G) town (D) (G) (A)

They came in like gypsies to steal the black gold
The town''''s population increased a hundred fold
But they scattered like quail when the oil wells ran out
And left no trace of the riches they''''d found

Then some big shot from Dallas built a factory out here
Gonna put us back on the map
But hell that was back a few years
Now weeds have grown up and the buildings falling down
You''''d think they''''d figured out by now
It''''s just a tumbleweed town

  Where the lonely wind blows like it''''s angry for being there
  A flat piece of stone in the middle of nowhere
  The town never grows cause nobody can keep their roots down
  It''''s just a tumbleweed town

A (D) few hayseeds and ranchers are (G) still hanging in
Too (D) old to start over too damn (G) stubborn to quit
And their (A) kids all get (D) restless waiting (G) for that Greyhound
So they can get the hell out of this (A) tumbleweed (G) town

Repeat Intro and Fade
