Turnpike Troubadours
Shreveport
Capo 2


          C                   F          C                 G     C  
Well on a Greyhound bound for Shreveport Iíd been too long in my seat
  C                F        C              G       C 
I stopped off in a no named town to grab a bite to eat
        Am                 C              F              G
Gnd the ceiling fans they hungíd above a screened in patio
C                      F       C                 G         C
Crawfish hotter than a chimney fire the beer was cheap and cold
        Am                   C                F                 G 
Gnd the bar maid smiled that kind of smile that knocked me off my stool
     C                F        C                 G        C 
Said hang around Iíll show you things they donít teach in school

           C      F                 C       G      C
Gcross the way an old blues man was playiní on the street
   C                  F         C      G              C
He moaned just like a black and tan, I found myself a seat
         Am                   C            F            G
He sang ĎLord He lives above usí and Ďthe devil sleeps beneathí
        C                   F       C                  G         C
Well he growled it mean and low between his three or four gold teeth
      Am              C               F               G
Gnd I wished I was in Shreveport just a gambliní like a fool
     C                 F           C                G        C    
Well you can learn somethings down there they donít teach in school

       C                       F       C                    G        C
Well I dreamed that night of a pretty girl, I dreamed of a river boat
      C                          F         C            G         C
ĎTill a man in blue kicked at my shoes and said come on boy, lets go
           Am           C               F                G
I said, oh officer, oh officer, please donít take me to jail
C                                   F         C                         G       C
Said you canít sleep outside now my hands are tied, I knew that feeliní all too well 
    Am             C                  F              G
And if you play in my town son youíll play it by the rules
     C                   F         C          G                C
That downtown night shed light on sights that you wonít see in school

       C      F              C       G        C
Out of Jail I found myself a-walkiní down the road
   C                 F                   C       G        C
So glad to hear that ole Jake Brake come purriní nice and slow
         Am             C                  F                G
Said Iím goin as far as Fayetteville, Iíve got some room to spare
C                        F                C             G      C
Could you drop me off at Fort Smith, Sir, well Iíve got family there
       Am                      C                       F                G
Gnd he bought the Jack on that big black Mack, kickiní back I played it cool
       C              F            C                 G        C
From a shotgun seat I learned some things they donít teach in school
