Cross Canadian Ragweed

Cross Canadian Ragweed - Brooklyn Kid(corrected) guitar chord

Brooklyn Kid(corrected)

Tabbed by: Mickey Renfro

(capo 2nd)


Well I gotta friend that lives south of town

Loves to sit and burn one down

Bm C D

Spin some vinyl on his stereo


Every now and then he speaks of war

One tour of duty on a foreign shore

Bm C D

Fightin' for his way home

Fmaj7 C D

Fightin' for his way home

Bm C D

Returnin' home to his native land

Left New York for Texas man

Quieter times were in his cards

He met a girl she met a man

Dropped to his knees and he took her hand

A simple life ain't that hard

No, a simple life ain't all that hard

Bm C D

A new generation on the ground

Nothin' in the world could bring him down

Flyin' like he had wings

Several years came and went

Not one of them was poorly spent

A good man's life he was chiselin'

Yeah, a good man's life he was chiselin'

Reflecting on the Viet-Cong

Uncle John's Band and a Dylan song

Smellin' like it's supper time

You know it brought a tear to his eye

The day that Jerry Garcia died

He said he was the genius of his time

Yeah, A Friend of the Devil is a Friend of Mine

Don't try to find it

Make the time

A couple of joints and a bottle of wine

You'll be glad that you did

With the Grateful Dead spinnin' round

Kick your feet back and be astound

By the life of the Brooklyn kid

*All chords are with capo on 2*
