West Texas Wind
Cooder Graw


G D G

G              D     C                    
A hard working lady, out on the boulevard 
G                  D
using her body for trade
        C               
She was pregnant and didnt show it, 
      Am
Had a baby and didnt know it
        G        D           C
And her colorful life had to fade

G               D         C 
Her new life began on the same day the old ended 
G                         D
And only the habits lived on.  
           C                       Am
And it was 2 or 3 weeks before the EKG beeps 
G       D          C    
finally let her go home

(Chorus)
G       D          C          G                     D
So blow West Texas Wind blow, blow all her troubles away
G    D          C          G            D      C  
Blow West Texas Wind blow, blow all her habits away


G                D       C
She had the same chances her mother had 
    G                     D
Her grandma took over her life
C                              Am
She lived in the same room and sang the same tunes, 
G          D         C
Her mother sang as a child


Chorus

G D C G D C Am G D C

G                 D             C                      
She finally moved away from the wrong side of town,
    G                     D 
And got a good job at the bank
C                           Am                        G       D          C
She had a good life, made a damn good wife, and shes got her grandma to thank

Chorus x2

Enjoy.
