Oklahoma Wind-crd

Billy Joe Shaver

 EmAm
        Jesse lit us up and passed the bottle one more time
 Em
        We used to smoke and drink a lot back then
 Am
        Thunder shook the heavens and the lightning danced the sky
 Em
        Like i ain't seen since can't remember when
Verse 2:
 EmAm
        The Oklahoma kid laid dying in a women's wing
 Em
        Just another indian biting dust
 Am
        Clouds grew dark in promise but they didn't rain a thing
 Em
        The government ain't something you can trust
Bridge:
 GADG
        Oh the Oklahoma wind slides across the burning sand
 G/A/Em
        Over double crosses mother nature made
Verse 3:
 EmAm
        We picked a gig in Tulsa at the Cains ballroom that night
 Em
        The Oklahoma kid was dead and gone
 Am
        Rains still hadn't come but the clouds still blacked the sky
 Em
        That's when i took the time to write this song about the wrong
Chorus:
 GADG
        Oh the Oklahoma wind slides across the burning sand
 AEm
        Over double crosses mother nature made
 GADG
        And nothing's ever come as far as i'm concerned
 AEm
        From those dead tomorrows planted yesterday
Verse 4:(Waylon)
 EmAm
        The white man took a chance and got his foot hung in the door
 Em
        He sure as hell is gonna have his day
 Am
        The redman speaks his peace gain his long lost dignity
 Em
        Washington just turned the other way
Verse 5:(Waylon)
 EmAm
        Jesse spends his days in Loco Hills New Mexico
 Em
        Every night he drinks his fill of booze
 Am
        When Williams ghost is running he lays his money down
 Em
        Winning just enough to lose to lose to lose ...
Chorus.(x2).
