Desperados Waiting For A Train chords by The Highwaymen

The Highwaymen Chords


C			G
I'd play the Red River Valley, 
	Am		          Dm
and he'd sit out in the kitchen and cry.
	     D		                F          Fm
And run his fingers through seventy years of livin'
     C			   G		      Am   
And wonder Lord, has every well I drilled run dry.
We were friends me and this old man.


	F			G
Like desperadoes waiting for a train,
	F			G
Like desperadoes waiting for a train,
	F			G
Like desperadoes waiting for a train,
	F	Fm		C
Like desperadoes waiting for a train.


C			     G
He's a drifter and a driller of oil wells,
           Am		    Dm
and an old school man of the world,
	    		D	    F    Fm
He'd let me drive his car when he's too drunk to,
	 C		  G		Am
And he'd wink and give me money for the girls,
And our lives was like some old western movie.


C					  G
From the time that I could walk he'd take me with him, 
      Am			      Dm
to a bar called the Green Frog Cafe,
	  D		   F		Fm
And there was old men with beer guts and dominoes,
	C	G		Am
Lyin' 'bout their lives while they'd play,
And I was just a kid they called his sidekick


C				G
One day I looked up and he's pushin' eighty,
      	Am				Dm
And there's brown tobacco stains all down his chin,
	D	     F		   Fm
To me he's one of the heroes of this country,
	C	G		  Am
So why's he all dressed up like them old men,
Drinkin' beer and playin' Moon and Forty Two


C			          G
The day before he died I went to see him
	Am		       Dm
I was grown and he was almost gone
	    D			F	     Fm
So we just closed our eyes and dreamed us up a kitchen
	C	G		Am
And sang another verse to that old song
Come on Jack, that son of a b**ch is a-coming.
