Navajo Rug
Sung By: Ian Tyson
(My version of this great Ian Tyson song)

(Capo 2nd Fret)

Intro:  G   Em   C   D
Verse 1.
D         G                                  Am
Well it's two eggs up on whiskey toast * And home fries on the side
C                                    Am7             D
Wash it down with the truck coffee * Burns up your insides
        G                              Am
Just a Canyon-Colorado Diner * And a waitress I did love
    C
We sat in the back 'neath an old stuffed bear
                     D   (stop)
On a worn out Navajo rug

Verse 2.
          G                                            Am
Well Old Jack, the boss, he closed at six * And it was Katie bar the door
                            Am7              D
She'd pull down that Navajo rug * And she'd spread it 'cross the floor
             G
Hey, I saw lightning in the sacred mountains
     Am                         C
Saw the dance of turtle doves * sittin' next to Katie
    D
On that old Navajo rug

(Chorus)
D          G    Em      C                 D
Aye, Aye, Aye, Katie * Shades of red and blue
           G    Em      C                                     G
Aye, Aye, Aye, Katie * Whatever became of the Navajo rug and you
Em      C                 D
Katie, shades of red and blue

Verse 3.
Well I saw old Jack about a year ago
He said the place burned to the ground
And all I saved was an old bear tooth
And Katie, she'd left town
Ah, but Katie, she got her souvenir too
Jack spat a tobacco plug
Well you should have seen her a-coming through the smoke
Draggin' that Navajo rug
(Repeat Chorus)
Verse 4.
Now every time I cross those sacred mountains
And lightning breaks from above
It always takes me back in time
To my long lost Katie love
But everything keeps on a-movin'
Yeah, an' everybody's on the go
You don't find things that last anymore
Like an old woven Navajo
(Repeat Chorus twice and fade)
