No More Buffalo

  G           D          A       D
I guess we knew the cards were stacked
G        D              A      
started out the best of friends
       G         D                A            D
and we beat that highway 'till it quit beating back
   G           D           A  D G       D    A        D
it didn't mean much in the end some you win, some you lose
G        D         A    
some you throw away
G         D                   A       D
we headed South across those Colorado plains
G          D         A     G         D         A       D
just as empty as the day we looked around at all we saw
remembered all we'd hoped to see

looking out through the bugs on the windshield
G        D       A
somebody said to me

G       D
no more buffalo
G             D
blue skies or open road
G        D
no more rodeo
B       A     
no more noise
G         D
take this Cadillac
G         D     
park it out in back
G        D
mama's calling
G            A  
put away the toys

don't chase that carrot
'till it makes you sick
what do you think you're gonna prove
just let it dangle 
'till it falls off that stick
that's when you make your move

don't go chasing after shooting stars
trying to make yourself a name
you could joust at the windmills
with that old Fender guitar
you'd probably do about the same


I never thought they'd ever doubt my words
I guess they were just too tired to care
I'd point to the horizon
to the dust of the herds
still hovering in the air
somebody said it aint any such
man you wish so hard you're scaring me
and those are combines kicking up that dust
but I guess you can see what you want to see
you can keep on chasing what used to be there
top that rise and face the pain

but man they were here
they were here I swear
not just these bleaching bones
stretching across the plain

(chorus)hey broke into your car last night,
took the stereo
