Jimmy Rankin


'Twas a [C]brisk autumn day they [Am]remember it well
[F]Tripper went strolling [C]along
He was merely a boy his [Am]mom's pride and joy
So [C]sure he could do no[F] wrong
Running [C]down to the river then [Am]up by the tracks
[C]Pretending he was Jesse[F] James
With his [Am]father's old hat, a [C]stick for a [F]gun
[C] Tripper walked [G]home in the [C]rain

Such a [C]glorious sight
Fresh [Am]flowers in bloom
In the [F]spring when the ice takes to [C]thaw
But it's a rough wretched road a [Am]man has to go
[C]Living outside of the [F]law
For a [C]dark dirty cell was [Am]Tripper's own hell
[C]Survival was his battle [F]cry
If [Am]drinking don't kill me or a [C]villainous [F]gun
[C]He said I'll [G]live 'til I [C]die

Chorus:
[Em]Mother dear I'm in [Am]trouble here
Far [F]away in the distant [C]West
[Em]I've laid down on [Am]stony ground
I'm not [F]feeling all the [G]best
   


[C]Cold wind on the river and [Am]rain on the road
Every [F]light in the house burning [C]strong
Somebody's saying a [Am]sad rosary
[C]Wondering where Tripper went [F]wrong
'Cause he [C]met his own maker to a [Am]grim undertaker
Took a [C]knife too deep in the [F]lung
In a [Am]dim parking lot his [C]very last [F]thoughts
Were the [C]days he went [G]strolling [C]along

Chorus:
[Em]Mother dear I'm in [Am]trouble here
Far [F]away in the distant [C]West
[Em]I've laid down on [Am]stony ground
I'm not [F]feeling all the [G]best

'Twas a [C]brisk autumn day they [Am]remember it well
[C]Tripper went [G]strolling [C]along
