a                                        e
Well it's two eggs up on whiskey toast, home fries on the side,
d                                     e
Wash it down with road house coffee, burns up your insides,
        a                            e    
Just a canyon Colorado diner, and a waitress I did love,
   d                                                e
I sat in the back neath an old stuffed bear, and a worn out navajo rug.
a                                                 e 
Now old Jack, the boss, he left at six,and it's Katie bar the door,
d                                      e
She'd pull down that navajo rug, and spread it across the floor,
            a                                         e
Hey I saw lightning cross, the sacred mountains, saw woven turtle doves,
        d                       e
I was lying next to Katie, on that old Navajo rug.

chorus
           a            d               e 
Aye, aye, aye,Katie, shades of red and blue,
           a            d                     e             a  
Aye, aye, aye, Katie, whatever became of the Navjo rug and you
         d                 e
Katie, shades of red and blue.

a                                                 e
Well I saw old Jack, about a year ago, said the place burned to the 

ground,
     d                                         e
And all I saved was this old bear tooth, and Katie, she left town,
          a                               e
Ah, but Katie got her souvenir to; Jack spat a tobacco plug,
           d
Well you should have seen her comin through the smoke,
e
Draggin that Navajo rug,

           a             d                e
Aye, aye, aye, Katie, shades of red and blue,
           a            d                     e               a
Aye, aye, aye, Katie, whatever became of the Navajo rugh and you.

    a                                            e 
So everytime I cross the sacred mountains, and lightning breaks above,
     d                                   e
It always takes me back in time, to my long lost Katie love,
      a                                e
But everything keeps on moving, and everybodys on the go,
           d                                           e
Hey, you don't find things that last anymore, like an old woven Navajo,

          a             d                e
Aye, aye,aye, Katie, shades of red and blue,
           a            d                      e             a
Aye, aye, aye, Katie, whatever became of the Navajo rug and you,
          d               e
Katie, shades of red and blue, 
           a            d                      e             a
Aye, aye, aye, Katie, whatever became of the Navajo rug and you
