Two Girls, Townes Van Zandt
from "Live at the Old Quarter"
tabbed by Jud Branam (
capo 4
The (C)clouds didn't look like (Dm)cotton
they didn't (G)even (F)look like (C)clouds
I was underneath the (Dm)weather
and my (G)friends looked (F)like a (C)crowd
The (Am)swimmin hole was (C)full of rum
I (F)tried to find out (C)why
all I (Dm)learned my friend
is you've got to (G)swim be(F)fore you (C)fly.
I've got (F)two (C)girls
one's in (Am)heaven, one's (C)below
one I love with (Dm)all my heart
and (G)one I (F)do not (C)know.
Two lonesome dudes on an ugly horse
Passed by not long ago
They asked me where the action was
I said I did not know
And as they disappeared into the brush
I heard the driver say
He's a little slow between the ears
He's always been that way
Jolly Jane just lays around and listens with her mouth.
She's had about a dozen husbands,
but the last one just pulled out.
Now who's gonna bring her dinner
through the weary years ahead?
All she'll get from me is sympathy,
got no time to see she's fed.
Cold down on the bayou,
they say it's in your mind.
But the moccasins are treadin' ice
and leavin' strange designs
Cajuns say the last time
this happened they werent' here
Aw, beaumont's full of penguins
and I'm a playin' it by ear.
chorus 2x and out.
