                Capo 4

Tuning : standard

Intro      Am x4

Verse 1

Am 
Sometimes I don't know where this 
      Dm
dirty road is taking me
    Am 
Sometimes I don't even know the 
       Em
reason why
      Am 
But I guess I'll keep on gambling 
        Dm
lots of booze and lots of rambling
      Am          Em
Seems easier than waiting around to
Am
die

Verse 2
                               Dm
Sometimes friends I had a ma I even
had a pa
   Am    
He beat her with a belt once cos 
    Em
she cried
Am                          Dm
Told her to take care of me headed down to Tennessee
       Am               Em
Seemed easier than just waiting 
          Am
around to die

Verse 3
    
Well I came of age and found a girl
     Dm
in a Tuscaloosa bar
    Am
She cleaned me out and hit it on 
    Em
the slide
  Am 
I tried to kill the pain bought 
     Dm
some wine and hopped the train
       Am               Em
Seemed easier than just waitin 
          Am
around to die

Verse 4

Well a friend said he knew where 
     Dm
some easy money was
   Am
We robbed the man and brother did 
   Em
we fly
        Am
But the police caught up with me 
           Dm
dragged me back to Muskogee
     Am             Em
It's too long years waitin around 
   Am
to die

Instrumental     Am  Dm  Am  Em  Am

Verse 5

                             Dm
Well now I'm in a prison and got me a friend at last
    Am 
But he don't drink or steal or 
         Em
cheat or lie
    Am                      Dm
His name's co dean he's the nicest thing I've seen
Am                     Em
together we're goin to wait around 
    Am
and die
                          Em
Oh together we're goin to wait 
           Am
around and die
