David Allan Coe

David Allan Coe - Houston, Dallas, San Antone guitar chord

David Allan Coe - Houston, Dallas, San Antone

G G/F# Em C

I got drunk in Austin, Texas

G D C

I missed my plane in North Carolina

G A D G

Spent all of my money, on a long distance call

G/F# Em C

Huntsville Prison walls so high

G D C

I’m so lonesome I could die

G D

You could make a grown man cry

G G A B D

If you wanted to.

Chorus:

G Am D

Say goodbye to Houston for me

C G

Give my best to San Antone

Am D

Tell Dallas there’s a change in plans

G

I won’t be comin’ home.

G G/F# Em C

Dallas lives in Winston, Salem

G D C

We got married in a West Virginia

G A D G

Then we moved to Texas, on a fifty-acre farm

G/F# Em C

I robbed a bank and shot a man

G C

Ended up in Birmingham

G D

But I guess I tipped my hand

G G A B D

And wound up in the pen.

Chorus:

G G/F# Em C

Houston is my oldest daughter

G D C

Says she’s leavin’ for New York City

G A D G

She’s gonna make her living, raising for a star

G/F# Em C

San Antone’s my only son

G C

Please don’t tell him what I’ve done

G D

Or that I had to use my gun

G G A B D

Or that I killed a man.

Chorus: X3
