Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Shaky Town  Jackson Browne

[G]I've wit[G7]nessed those [C]one night stands
[D]Must have [D7]played in a [C]thousand [G]bands
But [D]I'm just here tonight tomorrow [C]I'll [D]be [Em]gone   [G]
Seen f[G7]olks show their [C]blacker sides
[D]Seen 'em [D7]die just for [C]foolish [G]pride
And those dri[D]vers always ask to hear that sam[C]e old[D] son[Em]g

That's a big ten four     [C]
By your back door  [D]
Just put that hammer[C] down  [G]
[G7]This young man [C]feels, those eighteen [A]wheels
That keep [D]turnin round to take me down to [C]Sha[D]ky T[Em]own

And I've heard all those hard luck tales
From all of you US males
I've heard you tell those lies about the loves you've known
And I've followed your highway signs
And I've run down your thin white lines
Like those drivers this old road is all I call my own

That's a big ten four
By your back door
Just put that hammer down
This young man feels, those eighteen wheels
That keep turnin round to take me down to Shaky Town

solo and repeat chorus plus. . .

[G]All the way down to [C]Shak[D]y [Em]Town

[C]Shaky Town  [G]
