Verse:

E                    D        A         E
Leaving me girl and moving on down the road

E                  D           A        E
You left me many burdens such a heavy load

B                                      A                     E
And it sure does bring me out when I think about what went down

E                   D        A         E
Well, Crossroads, all my life it has been

E                  D        A          E
I'm so afraid but know I'm trying to see

B                                     A                            E
I just rode on through life till I took the time to concentrate on you


Chorus:

A
Well you can preach me like a lesson

E
You can bring me a lot of gold

A
But you can't live in Texas

E
If you don't have a lot of soul.

Verse:

(same chords as before)

I'm leaving here tonight for the very last time
Yes I'm leaving you girl, cos now I know that you ain't mine
And where you're living now, you'll find out and how that you never had a friend

Chorus:

Well you can preach me like a lesson
You can bring me a lot of gold
But you just can't live in Texas
If you don't have a lot of soul

Fill In:

E|------7-----5-----3--3--2--0------|
B|---5-----3-----0--------------0---|
G|----------------------------------|


Verse:

Well I'm leaving here tonight for the very last time
Yes I'm leaving you girl cos now I know you ain't mine
Some day a change will come and you'll be there beside me one more time

One more time.

Outro:

B    A    E (Repeat till fade)

Yeah, and you'll be there beside me

One more time

Yes you'll be there beside me

One more time
