Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Heartland feelings  Beck

[C]Old Man Johnson got his head in his hand
Makin' his way across state in a fiddlin' band
With his hair a[Am]ll down in his eyes
And the microphone[C] all covered with flies.
When he gets done playin' goes back to his room
Climbs into bed in his cowboy boots
And he picks up [Am]a magazine turns on the TV
[C]Lights a cigar as he's fallin' asleep.
Well he's only a p[F]erson...w[C]ho doesn'[Am]t know shit.
F C Am(let ring)
Yeah nothing happenin'...that's about it.
[C]Well, little Rosanna came from Texarkana
Had fourteen dollars wrapped in a bandana.
[Am]Came into town not lookin' for much
Well she found a h[C]ound dog and she named him "Dutch."
She got a job at the arcade takin' quarters
But she was never too good at takin' orders
So one nigh[Am]t she stopped givin' out change
She kick[C]ed the boss in the chin and unplugged the games.
She's onl[F]y a person...wh[C]o doesn'[Am]t know shit.
F C Am(let ring)
Nothin' happenin'...That's about it.
[C]Ooh, ooh.  Yeah, yeah, yeah.
[C]Sam got canned at the cannery
He punched out the clock that night.
His [Am]knuckle was bleeding as he walked home,
He was cold [C]and he had a headache.
Well his wife was cookin' canned beans,
He took out all the money out of his jeans
And he set it [Am]on fire in the kitchen sink
As his wife[C] handed him a drink.
He was o[F]nly a person...who[C] didn't [Am]know shit.
F C Am(let ring)
Nothin' happenin'...that's about it.
Uh, yeah[C], oh.  Wooh, ooh, ooh, ooh...
[C]Smiley was lookin' for handouts
sleepin' in a abandoned lighthouse.
[Am]Down at the mini-mall shakin' his hat
[C]Washin' windows with his bare hand.
He found a sports car with the keys
In the ignition it just seemed so easy.
He[Am] took a joyride drove into a hedge
[C]Came out with the steering wheel wrapped around his head.
Well he's [F]only a person...[C]who doesn't [Am]know shit.
F C Am(let ring)
Nothin' happenin'...that's about it.
[C]Ooh, ooh, yeah, yeah.
[C]Well Jane was born in a small town
Everybody just standing around.
They had bingo ga[Am]mes and a raffle,
[C]everybody chewin' tobacco.
Well she grew up kinda restless
All her boyfriends wanted to be dentists(dead-ass?).
And s[Am]he got a job at the truck stop
And she got all fas[C]t and never did what she wanted
And she's only [F]a person...who[C] doesn't k[Am]now shit.
F C Am(let ring)
Nothing happenin'...that's about it.
[C]Yeah, yeah, yo...
Oh yeah...oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh.
Woo, ooh, ooh....
