Turnpike Troubadours
Capo 2

Intro: G  D  Em  C  G  D  G 

Verse 1:
           G              D   G          D/F#
Well I was working on the KCS Rail Line
Em                          D
Katie was the girl down the street
       G             D            Em        C
Well I took her to a dance on the Fourth of July
G                D                 G
Hopin' she might fall in love with me
         G            D                G     D/F#
Well the band started playing right at nine
Em                         D
Firecrackers popped in the sky
   G             D
We danced and we danced
Em                 C
Lord I never had a chance
      G             D      G
I got canned on the 5th of July

Chorus: 
       D              G
And we laughed at the moonlight
D/F# Em                       D
Said goodbye in the grey light of dawn
        G          D               Em             C
Yes the girl of my dreams each and every night it seems
       G          D          G
Is the one that I hold in my arms

Instrumental: G  D  Em  C  G  D  G

Verse 2:
      G              D             G       D/F#
I was playin' in the Tommy Knocker Tavern
Em                        D
Jenny was the girl at the bar
       G          D        Em          C
Well I sang every song for her and her alone
    G                     D        G
And kissed her 'neath the Colorado stars

Chorus: 
       D              G
And we laughed at the moonlight
D/F# Em                       D
Said goodbye in the grey light of dawn
        G          D               Em             C
Yes the girl of my dreams each and every night it seems
       G          D          G
Is the one that I hold in my arms

Instrumental: 
G  D  G  D/F# - Em  D  G  D  Em  C  G  D  G 

Verse 3:
G                D                    G       D/F#
Seasons come and change just like the leaves
Em                         D
Red oaks in the Kiamichi wind
          G                D
Well they scatter and they fall
           Em             C
Where they land I can't recall
       G            D       G
Will I ever find my darlin' again
 
Verse 3:
G                D                    G       D/F#
Seasons come and change just like the leaves
Em                         D
Red oaks in the Kai Nation wind
          G                D
Well they scatter and they fall
           Em             C
Where they land I can't recall
       G            D       G
Will I ever find my darlin' again

Chorus: 
       D              G
And we laughed at the moonlight
D/F# Em                       D
Said goodbye in the grey light of dawn
        G          D               Em             C
Yes the girl of my dreams each and every night it seems
       G          D          G
Is the one that I hold in my arms
        G          D               Em             C
Yes the girl in my dreams each and every night it seems
       G          D          G
Is the one that I hold in my arms

Outro: G  D  Em  C  G  D  G
