INTRO: D

D                            G
Why hello there little lady, I'm just a lonesome guitar picker
C                         G                  D
You'd never know from the way I look I'm an educated man
                                        G
I got the music in my blood little lady, makes me ramble 'cross the land
C              G                D
Troubles on my mind, this old guitar in my hand

D                         G
I left my home and family, I wasn't much more than a child
C                          G     D
I don't count the towns no more, sure don't count the miles
                                G
I guess I'll never have a home, 'least ways not your kind
C              G                                     D
I just stopped here in this bar to try to bring some peace of mind


BREAK: C G D

D                                           G
Well I usually play for my drinks and tips, 'cept when I play for free
C         G                                 D
This old guitar and a bag of songs, that's 'bout all there is to me
                               G
Little lady if you don't mind, I think I'll make a song for you
C                     G                D
I'll sing it down the road somewhere, that's the most that I can do

D                                        G
Lord the music just won't turn me loose, it's a curse to be this kind
C                  G           D
Little lady you'll never know, the comfort that I find
                                                 G
In just talkin' to someone like you in this bar along the way
C                             G                 D
You sure ain't the usual kind that I find to brighten up my day


BREAK: C  G  D 

D                                           G
And tonight when I lay down along some road to try to sleep
       C                       G         D
Just a memory in your treasure chest is all that you may keep
                                          G
No wait now, I got more than that to give, it's this locket made of gold
C                        G              D
My mother gave it to me ma'am, now it's yours to hold

D                         G                           
Na, don't try to thank me, do I need a place to stay
     C                      G                      D
Well thank you little lady, why don't we pick up a bottle along the way


OUTRO: C  G  D
