 G
 I've been worked by the rain    (some versions substitute hurt or washed for
worked)
D(*)
Driven by the snow
 EmC
 Drunk and dirty - don't you know
 GCC+2CG
But I'm still..          ..willin
 G
(And I was) Out on the road
D(*)
Late at night
 EmC
 Seen my pretty Alice in every headlight
 GCC+2CG
 Alice..           ..Dallas Alice
CHORUS
 GCD
 And I been from  Tucson to Tucumcari
 DG
 Tehachapi to Tonapa
 GC
 Driven every kind of rig that's ever been made
C D D(**)
Driven the back roads so I wouldn't get weighed
(No chords - let previous D resound)
And if you give me
(No chords again but I use a stepping C)
C step down to G
Weed, Whites and wine
 GD
 And you show me a sign
 DGCC+2CG
 I'll be willin'         to be movin'
 G
 Kicked by the wind
D(*)
Robbed by the sleet
D(*) Em C
Had my head stoved in but I'm still on my feet
 CGCC+2CG
 And I'm still ....     in a whole lot of trouble
G D(*)
Smuggled some smokes and folks from Mexico
 Em
 Baked by the sun
 CG
 Every time I go to Mexico
 CC+2CG
           And I'm still....
REPEAT CHORUS
------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTES
D(*) - many different chord variations have been suggested here,
including Bm and pure D. I use a hybrid of D with a 6th
string bass on the second fret since this bass note is
very important to the flow of the song. If you're lucky
your thumb can cover this, but mine won't so I usually
take the easy route and play 1st string 2nd fret plus
6th string 2nd fret with all the other strings open - not
such a good sound but FAR easier when you're trying to sing
as well !
C+2 - this is simply a slide of C up 2 frets. However, I prefer
to use normal open D instead as it had a better ring to it.
I've tried to match the words up with the chords but I guess it's
one of those songs you have to know quite well to get the inflections right.
Also, there's so many versions of this around the lyrics and especially
Lowell Georges asides at the end of verses etc change slightly. This version
is transcribed from the live album 'Waiting For Columbus'.
Cheers,
Martin.
