Silver Ribbons  Waylon Jennings

[F]      [C7]       [C]                        
[C]Travelin down this lonesome railroad
Silver Ribbons in my [Am]hand
[C]A million miles of cross ties
Marks a million miles I've [G]been

[G]Ive picked [F]peaches down in [G]Georgia,
[F]Apples up in [G]Maine
Pulled [F]cotton out in [C]Texas
[F]Ridin on a [C]Train    [D]

[D]I was just a lad of seventeen
My daddy turned me [Bm]loose
[D]Silver Ribbons callin me
Engine and [A]caboose
[G]I cant recall my [A]mother
[G]She left when I was [A]two
[G]Brunettes, blondes and [D]redheads
[G]Were the only love I [D]knew
[G]Dont ask me [A]where Im [D]going
[G]Dont ask me [A]where Ive [D]been
[G]Those silver [A]ribbons will [D]take me [G]there
[G]There......... and back [A]agai[G]n
[G]One more [A]tim[G]e....back [A]again...[E]...

[E]Traveling to the tune of freight wheels
Is such a lonely[C#m] sound
[E]Here that lonesome whistle blow
And leave another [B]town

I [A]wish someone was [B]waiting
Some[A]where to welcome [B]me
[A]Then those silver [E]ribbons
Would [A]see no more of [E]me
[A]Dont ask me [B]where Im [E]going
[A]Dont ask me [B]where Ive [E]been
[A]Those silver [B]ribbons will [E]take me [A]there
[A]There......... and back [B]agai[A]n
[A]One more [B]tim[A]e....back [B]again...[F#]...
