Little Feat




 I've been worked by the rain    (some versions substitute hurt or washed for
Driven by the snow
 Drunk and dirty - don't you know
But I'm still..          ..willin
(And I was) Out on the road
Late at night
 Seen my pretty Alice in every headlight
 Alice..           ..Dallas Alice
 And I been from  Tucson to Tucumcari
 Tehachapi to Tonapa
 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
 And you show me a sign
 I'll be willin'         to be movin'
 Kicked by the wind
Robbed by the sleet
D(*) Em C
Had my head stoved in but I'm still on my feet
 And I'm still ....     in a whole lot of trouble
G D(*)
Smuggled some smokes and folks from Mexico
 Baked by the sun
 Every time I go to Mexico
           And I'm still....

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'.
