Too Long In The Wasteland

James McMurtry

 D
 Hear the trucks on the highway, And the tickin' of the clocks
 G
There's a ghost of a moon in the afternoon, Bullet holes in the mailbox   
 D
Bullet holes in the mailbox, Keyholes in my mind   
 BbA
    Too long in the wasteland,     Too long in the wasteland
 D
I've fallin' behind

 D
 She said won't you come see me, When the sun goes down
 G
It'll be just like the old days, When I used to let you hang around  
 D
Well I don't know, I might not speak the language any more  
 BbA
    Too long in the wasteland,     Too long in the wasteland
 D
I've closed some doors

 D
 People in the village, Watch the children play
 G
At the sight of a stranger, They call the kids away   
 D
Just leave that man alone, I hear the mothers say   
 BbA
    Too long in the wasteland,     Too long in the wasteland
 D
What's made him that way

 D
 I hadn't intended, To bend the rules
 G
Wiskey dont make liers, It just makes fools   
 D
So I didn't mean to say it, But I meant what I said   
 BbA
    Too long in the wasteland,     Too long in the wasteland
 D
Must have gone to my head

Instrumental with some vocal sounds

 D
 Jet trails in the sunset, a long way away
 G
cuttin' cross the horizon, At the edge of the day  
 D
And it calls out to me, Come fly away, I've been     
 BbA
    Too long in the wasteland,     Too long in the wasteland
 D
I believe I'll have to stay

 BbA
    Too long in the wasteland,     Too long in the wasteland
 D
I'll have to stay

Final instrumental

 D
  There's a ghost of a moon in the afternoon
 G
Bullet holes in the mailbox   
 D
Bullet holes in the mailbox
