FAST WOMEN, SLOW HORSES AND WINE
Recorded by Charlie Walker
Words and music by D. Harp
[E] I used to have money, a [A] home and a [E] car ...
A horse and a dog and [F#] my old gui-[B7] tar ...
A [E] pretty young wife just as [A] sweet as could [E] be ...
Now all I've go left is a [B7] family [E] tree.
[E] Fast women, slow [A] horses and [E] wine ...
Have made me an old man a-[F#] head of my [B7] time ...
My [E] hair once black, now with [A] silver does [E] shine ...
On account of fast women, slow [B7] horses and [E] wine.
I first started playin' the horses for fun
The years rolled along but I never once won
I then started slippin' around on my wife
And I'll regret it the rest of my life.
(Note. Changes to F)
[F] I've lost all my money; my [Bb] wife took the [F] car
My home, horse and dog and [G] my old gui-[C7] tar
Her [F] new husband is a big [Bb] hillbilly [F] star
And the women all swoon when he [C7] plays my gui-[F] tar.
[F] Fast women, slow [Bb] horses and [F] wine ...
Have made me an old man a-[G] head of my [C7] time ...
My [F] hair once black, now with [Bb] silver does [F] shine ...
On account of fast women, slow [C7] horses and [F] wine.
TAG: Repeat last line of chorus.
