Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Saddle Tramp  Charlie Daniels

Well you [D]pass around the pipe and you all get [G]high.
[A]Never even stop and wonder [D]why.
[D]Maybe it's because you wanna [G]die.   [G]    [D/F#]
[Em]Maybe it's just the way things have to [A]be.

You [D]stay up late and drink too damn much [G]whiskey.
You [A]know that sort of thing is kind of [D]risky.
[D]Maybe it's just because you like to feel [G]frisky.[G]    [D/F#]
[Em]Maybe it's just be[A]cause you like to feel [D]free.

CHORUS 1:
(-piano)
[G]Saddle Tramp, how [A]many people [D]watch you ridin' by,
Like a [G]thunder cloud that [A]floats across the [D]Arizona sky,
And [G]wonder if they're [A]looking at a [D]mighty happy [G]man,  [G]    [D/F#]
Or just a [Em]lonely breeze that [A]drifts across the
[G]Endless [D/F#]desert[E] sa[D]nd.

(+lead guitar)
|D A |C G |


VERSE 2:
(+piano)
Well it's [D]gettin' kinda cold in Rea[G]dosa.
[A] Abilene ain't gettin' any [D]closer.
D G G D\F#
One more drink, one more hand of poker.
Because a [Em]fool and his money's gonna have to [A]part.


[D]You're too proud to ever show your [G]sorrow.
[A]You don't steal and you won't beg or [D]borrow.
You [D]may be here today but you're gone to[G]morrow.[G]    [D/F#]
There ain't no [Em]strings on your [A]boot heels or your [D]heart.
CHORUS 2:
[G]Saddle Tramp, how [A]many people [D]watch you ride away,
[G]Wonder why you [A]never promise to [D]come back some day.
Maybe [G]thinking you were [A]holding all the [D]pieces in your [G]hand,[G]    [D/F#]
Or are they [Em]slippin' through your [A]fingers like the
[G]Endless [D/F#]desert[E] sa[D]nd.
