Capo 4

Intro Riff


Verse 1

C            F            Dm               F
I ain't from Texas, but I made my way from Dallas
      Dm                G             C      G
And I know the lonesome sound is following
C         F                Dm            F
I ain't a gambler, but I can recognize a hand
            Dm                       G               C     G
And when to hold when the queens are staring back at me

|G---------2-----------0--|  x3  Then, C F G

Verse 2

Once I was a carpenter, and man my hands were calloused
I could swing a metal mallet sure and straight
But I took to the highway, a poet young and hungry
And I left the timbers rotting where they lay


F                            Fm
Forever I will move like the world that turns beneath me
           C       Am             G
And when I lose my direction I'll look up to the sky
And when the black cloak drags upon the ground
        Fm                      C
I'll be ready to surrender, and remember
           Am            G
Well we're all in this together
F                             Fm                         C G C G
If I live the life I'm given,    I wont be scared to die

Verse 3

And I don't come from Detroit, but her diesel motors pull me
And I followed till I finally lost my way
And now I spend my days in search of a woman we called purpose
And if I ever pass back through here town I'll stay


|G---------2-----------0--|  x3  Then C F G C C


And my life is but a coin, pulled from an empty pocket
Dropped into a slot with dreams of sevens close behind
And hope and fear go with it, and moon and the sun go spinning
Like the numbers and fruits before our eyes

C           F        G                C
Sometimes I hit, sometimes it robs me blind
C           F        G                C
Sometimes I hit, sometimes it robs me blind
