Sweetwater Texas

Charlie Daniels

 GDCG
 When I was a young man in Sweetwater Texas
 GCD
 Just one thing stayed on my mind
 GDCG
 To ride a white horse over Durango mountain
 CG
And leave Sweetwater Texas behind
 DCG
But I turned twenty one there in Sweetwater Texas
 CD
Just one thing made me stay there

 GDCG
 I wanted to leave, but I was in love
 EmCG
 The girl with the chestnut brown hair

 CD
 And there came a time,
 GC
 when she said shed be mine
 EmCD
 And go any place any time
 GDCG
So we rode a grey dog over Durango mountain
 CDG
And left Sweetwater Texas behind

SOLO
 GDCGGDCGGDCG
 GDCG
 It was thundering and lightning when we left Nolan County
 GCD
 The bus rolled along through the night
 GCG
 And old 36 was a magic black demon
 GDG
 leading towards the citys bright lights
 GDCG
 we pulled into Houston at ten in the morning
 GCD
 our hopes were as high as the sky
 GDCG
 but hopes turn to weeks, then years, then forever
 EmDG
I never knew how fast time goes by

 CD
 And cowboys sellin cars
 GC
 And country girls in bars
 EmCD
 Somehow just don't seem fair
 GDCG
And I wanted to die cause I knew I was loosing
 CDG
 The girl with the chestnut brown hair

SOLO
 GDCGGDCG
 CD
 So many times I said
 GC
Id rather be dead
 CD
 Than take downs to go to bed
 GC
 And ups to clear my head
 D
But If the good lord sees his way
 GC
To let me live one more day
Em (HOLD) D
Im so tired of being alone
 GDCG
Gonna ride a white horse over Durango mountain
 CDG
And make Sweetwater Texas my home.
