Texas Morning  Michael Nesmith

[Emaj7]Right in the middle of the [F#m]ten cent scenery

[G#m]Shuffled and stacked on a [A]postcard rack

[Emaj7]There's a cute little girl with a [F#m]Shetland pony

[G#m]She smiles at me but [A]I can't smile back

[F#]Cactus Jack drinks coffee [B]black

[F#]Tells me it's my [B]lucky day

[A]Five o'clock in the Texas Morning

And I've come a long, long [E]way

[A]Five o'clock in the Texas Morning

And I've come a long, long [E]way



She left me cold on a winter's morning
And cold it's been for a long, long time
She told me Texas was where she's going
And I came looking but she's so hard to find
Cactus Jack drinks coffee black
Tells me it's my lucky day
Five o'clock in the Texas Morning
And I've come a long, long way
Five o'clock in the Texas Morning
And I've come a long, long way







Oh, I[A] don't know just [A/G#]where I'll find her,

[F#m]Maybe the soldier with the [G]suitcase saw her,

[D]She just said she [F]was goin' to [A]Texas, for [E7]a little while

So I'm [A]looking for a [A/G#]girl with light brown hair,

And [F#m]hazel eyes, and [G]she's not too pretty, [D]but a beautiful smile,

[F]She just said, 'Well [A]I'm goin' to Texas, [E7]for a little while.'



Break: F# / B / F# / B


Cook in the back is gettin' curious,
He asks the waitress where I'm from
She just says 'Well, I've never seen him,
He's prob'ly just a California bum.'
Cactus Jack he says, 'That's right'
As I walk out into the light
Five o'clock in the Texas Morning
And I've got a long, long ride
Five o'clock in the Texas Morning
And I've got a long, long ride


[Emaj7]Outside, the su[F#m]n is up

And the win[G#m]d blows me

[A]Like a dixiecup

Down the highw[E]ay...
