Townes Van Zandt
Waiting Around To Die
Capo on 4

Am
Sometimes I don't know where
          Dm
this dirty road is taking me
         Am                          Em
sometimes I can't even see the reason why
Am
I guess I keep a-gamblin'
       Dm
lots of booze and lots of ramblin'
    Am               Em                Am
it's easier than just waitin' around to die

One-time friends I had a ma, I even had a pa
He beat her with a belt once cause she cried
She told him to take care of me, she headed down to Tennessee
It's easier than just a-waitin' 'round to die


I came of age and found a girl in a Tuscaloosa bar
She cleaned me out and hit it on the sly
I tried to kill the pain, I bought some wine and hopped a train
Seemed easier than just a-waitin' 'round to die


A friend said he knew where some easy money was
We robbed a man and brother did we fly
The posse caught up with me, drug me back to Muskogee
It's two long years, just a-waitin' 'round to die


Now I'm out of prison, I got me a friend at last
He don't steal or cheat or drink or lie
His name's codeine, he's the nicest thing I've seen
Together we're gonna wait around and die
