CAPO II


INTRO: D


(Willie, Waylon):
D
I know you like a brother, and I know you as well
D                                              A7   
There's somethings we could talk about, some things we'll never tell
G                 D         G               D
A few things in particular, are meant for solitude
D                  A7         D
Oh I could write a book about you, (now listen to this)


(Waylon):
A
Big Betty wore a lot of makeup, didn't she swear a lot
A
The mabilene ran like a river whenever she got hot
G               D      G                D
Last time I saw Betty, as best as I can recall
G                   D         A7
You were ridin' her piggyback down that motel hall (now wait a minute that ain't it)


(Willie):
G                    D                   G                       D
That's not the way I remember it, you're lyin' like a rug on the floor
G                   D              A7             D
The only Betty that I can remember I remember was yours (sure)
    A
And since you brought up the subject, let's talk about your taste in art
    A
The windows and walls and the ceilings and floors, you mighta got a little too dark
              G            D             G                        D
And there's a motel out in Fresno, where neither one of us can go back
G                      D                       A7
You had a thing about yellow and greens so you painted the whole room black


(Waylon):
G                    D            G                         D
That ain't the way I remember it, seems like I had a little help
G                 D                  A7                    D
You weren't along just for the ride, you hit a few strokes yourself, yeah


(Willie, Waylon):
D
I know you like a brother, and I know you as well
D                                              A7
There's somethings we could talk about, some things we'd never tell
G               D           G             D
A few things in particular, are meant solitude
D               A7         D
I could write a book about you
                                                  G
(But you don't have to worry Waylon I ain't gonna do it)   (I hope not!)
D               A7         D  
I could write a book about you
