Howard Hughes Blues

John Hartford

 CFEmAmFCAmFCGC
 CF
 I wanna sing you a song about Vegas town and poor old Howard Hughes
 EmAmFC
 Locked up there in his hotel suite trying to find his shoes
 AmF
Well he's got so much to lose…
 CGC
 Old Howard Hughes and all his blues

 CF
 His Nurses and his chauffeurs they stand around and sigh
 EmAmFC
 Watch the door and wait on him whatever's on his mind
 AmF
And that's a hell of a lot to do…
 CGC
 To guard old Howard Hughes and all his blues

Chorus:
 C
 And if he didn't have a nickel
 F
 If he didn't have a dime
 EmAm
 He could do whatever he damn well please
 FC
 He could do it all the time
 EmAmF
 But success is just a mess of overdue news (?) …
 CGC
 For old Howard Hughes and all his blues

 CF
 He's always in the papers he's always on the news
 EmAFC
 But no one knows whose Hughes are Who (?) Or even what's the truth
 AmF
 or who is getting screwed…
 CGC
and it's them and you know who and all his blues

 CF
 Way down yonder on the Vegas strip where the regular people pass
 EmAm
 I heard some say he's not too well
 FC
 I heard he's sinking fast
 AmF
 But those are unofficial sources to the news…
 CGC
 About poor old Howard Hughes and all his blues

Chorus:
 C
 And if he didn't have a nickel
 F
 If he didn't have a dime
 EmAm
 He could do whatever he damn well please
 FC
 He could do it all the time
 EmAmF
 But success is just a mess of overdue news (?) …
 CGC
 For old Howard Hughes and all his blues

 C
 Now a bunch folks are writtin' books about him
 F
 And some of them are awful long
 EmAmFC
 I didn't really have that much time so I thought I'd just write this song
 AmF
 Gotta get me in a few licks too…

 CGC
 About old Howard Hughes and all his blues

Chorus: (X2)
 C
 And if he didn't have a nickel
 F
 If he didn't have a dime
 EmAm
 He could do whatever he damn well please
 FC
 He could do it all the time
 EmAmF
 But success is just a mess of overdue news (?) …
 CGC
 For old Howard Hughes and all his blues
