Rock Salt and Nails

  D
On the banks of the river,
 G                     D
Where the willows hang down
                      Bm
And the wild birds all warble
               D
With a moaning sound

            Bm
Down in the holler
                     D
Where the water runs cold
                     G
It was there I first listened
                      D
To the lies that you told


   D                      G              D
Now I lie on my bed    and I see your sweet face;
                 Bm              D
The past I remember,    time cannot erase.
                G                         D
The letter you wrote me,    it was written in shame,
                  G                            D
And I know that your conscience    still echoes my name.

      D                        G          D
The nights are so long    and sorrow runs deep,
                  Bm                        D
And nothing is worse    than a night without sleep.
            G                      D
I walk out alone   and look at the sky,
              G                       D
Too empty to sing,    too lonesome to cry.

       D                         G                 D
If the ladies was blackbirds   and the ladies was thrushes,
                  Bm                          D
I'd lie there for hours   in the chilly, cold marshes;
                 G                                 D
If the ladies was squirrels   with their high bushy tails,
                 Bm             G           D
I'd load up my shotgun   with rocksalt and nails.
