The Texan Proverb  Misc. Unsigned Bands

[Am]The Texas wind was chilling, [Dm]when I admitted I was l[Am]ost
[Am]Prepared to spend night with the stars [Dm]and morning with the f[Am]rost
[F]Dismounting big ol’ Razor, next to my bed of g[Am]round
The peaceful ‘eve was br[E]oken by a nea[G]ring stranger’s s[Am]ound

[Am]Came o’er the hill a lone rider, [Dm]his mount was tall and g[Am]rand
[Am]He said ‘Son what brings you here to this [Dm]God forsaken l[Am]and’
I said ‘[F]I’m on my way to no good and probably even wo[Am]rse’
But if he’d[E] give directions, [G]he could take this heavy [Am]purse

In a la[Am]nd where laws were lead-based wounds, [Dm]this was a fair man’s [Am]deal
[Am]For he would send me on my way, [Dm]keeping coin for his next [Am]meal
But bef[F]ore our done transaction, there was something first he n[Am]eeded
For a man wh[E]o lives in nature knows, [G]that when it calls you h[Am]eed it
[Am]The gentleman dismounted and [Dm]his new boots took my [Am]eye
[Am]Snakeskin top and Cuban heels, [Dm]brand new spurs gleam either [Am]side
Excusin[F]g himself politely, he went and found a ponderosa [Am]pine
And I [E]turned west to see the sun’s last r[G]ays greet old stars, oh how they
Bridge: C Dm Em Am

[Am]Suddenly there was a scream, [Dm]had this man met a ra[Am]ttler's bite?
[Am]But then I saw him shoot up into sky and [Dm]disappear right out of s[Am]ight!
Never b[F]efore had a rider on the plain seen such a f[Am]eat occur…
[E]and looking up into the night, [G]I saw a brand new star ap[Am]pear

[Am]So remember boys when you're riding [Dm]and the sunset greets the n[Am]ight
[Am]And another of life's little c[Dm]hallenges, has done kept you fro[Am]m your plight
L[F]ook up for the tall grand rider in the sky and heed his vital l[Am]esson
[E]Don't get lost in Texas boys...and d[G]on't squat with your spurs on …[Am]. yah!
