Waylon Jennings
As you can see, this is not my work, so I (unlike others on this site) want to 
give credit where it is due.
Willie Nelson and Waylon F'in Jennings did this song together, apart, and 
probably naked in the rain at some point in the '70s.
Hope you enjoy. -Casey


Pick up the Tempo - Willie Nelson


(D)People are sayin that (G)time will take care of (D)people like me
That I'm livinâ too fast, they (E)say I can't last much (A)longer
(D)But little they see that (G)their thoughts of me is my (D)savior
And little they know that I (A)might go on (D)forever

so, Pick up the tempo just a (G)little and take it on (D)home
The singer ain't singin' and the (E)drummer's been draggin' too (A)long
(D)Time will take care of (G)itself so just leave time (D)alone
Pick up the tempo just a (A)little and bring it on (G)home (D)

(key change)

(E)Well I'm wild and I'm mean I'm (A)creatin a scene I gone (E)crazy
I'm good and I'm bad, I'm (F#)happy and I'm sad and I'm (B)lazy
(E)I'm quiet and I'm loud and I'm (A)gatherin' a crowd and I like (E)gravy
'bout half off the wall   (B)I learned it all in the (E)navy

Pick up the tempo just a (A)little and take it on (E)home
The singer ain't singin' and the (F#)drummer's been draggin' too (B)long
(E)Time will take care of (A)itself so just leave time (E)alone
Pick up the tempo just a (B)little and bring it on (A)home (E)
