Night Rider's Lament

Garth Brooks

 DGDA
One night while I was out ridin' The graveyard shift, midnight 'til dawn
 GADBmAGD
The moon was bright as a readin' light For a letter from an old friend back home.
 GADGAD
And he asked me Why do you ride for your money Tell me why do you rope for short pay
 GADBmAG
You ain't gettin' nowhere and you're losin' your share    
 AGD
Boy, you must have gone crazy out there.
 DGDA
He said last night I run onto Jenny She's married and she has a good life.
 GADBm
Boy, you sure missed the track when you never came back
 AGD
She's the perfect professional's wife.
 GADGAD
And she asked me why does he ride for his money And tell me why does he rope for short pay
 GADBmAG
He ain't gettin' nowhere and he's losin' his share   
 AGD
Boy, he must've gone crazy out there.
 GADBmGAD
Ah, but they've never seen the Northen Lights, they've never seen a hawk on the wing
 GADBmAG
They never spent spring on the Great Divide,   
 AGDE
And they've never heard ole' camp cookie sing.    
 EAEB
 Well, I read up the last of my letter, And I tore off the stamp for black Jim.
 ABEC#mBAE
And when Billy rode up to relieve me,      He just looked at my letter and grinned.
 ABEABE
He said now why do they ride for their money, Tell me why do they ride for short pay
 ABEC#mBA
They ain't gettin' nowhere and they're losin' their share    
 BAE
Boy, they must've gone crazy out there
 ABE
Son, they all must be crazy out there.

 E
Have fun with the yodeling part! Yodel in the key of E, after the last *there* go back
to A, E, B, E over and over again until you run out of breath or clear the room.
