Desperados Waiting For a Train
written by D. Robey/F. Washington
tabbed 7/20/05

INTRO:  D  Dsus4 D (2x)

     D         A          Bm
And I'd sing "Red River Valley"
         G                      A7
And he'd sit in the kitchen and cry
         D                   A         Bm
Run his fingers thru seventy years of livin'
           G                              A7
Wonderin' Lord is every well I drilled ran dry

         A7      G             D
We were friends, me and that old Man
       D          A             G
Like desperados waiting for the train
       D           A             G
Like desperados waiting for the train


Bm  D  A


He's a drifter and a driller of oil wells
And an old school man of the world
Taught me how to drive his car when he's too drunk to
And he'd wink and give me money for the girls


And our lives were like some old western movie
Like desperados waiting for the train
Like desperados waiting for the train


(NOTE: go straight to next VERSE)


From the time I could walk he'd take me with him
To a place called the Green Frog Cafe
And there was old men with beer guts and dominos 
Lyin' 'bout their lives while they played


And I was just a kid that they all called a sidekick
Like desperadoes waiting for the train
Like desperados waiting for the train


Bm  D  A  D  Dsus4  D  Dsus4  D


And I looked up and he was pushin 80
And there was brown tobacco stains all down his chin
To me he's one of the heroes of this country
So why is he all dressed up like some old man


Drinkin' beer and playin' moon in '42
Like desperados waiting for the train
Like desperados waiting for the train


D


Day before he died I went to see him
I was grown and he was almost gone
We just closed our eyes and dreamt us up a kitchen
And sang another verse to that old song


Don't cry Jack, it's only Jesus comin'
Like desperados waiting for the train
Like desperados waiting for the train
Like desperados waiting for the train
