G-G-Cadd9-G-Em-D-Cadd9-G



[G]Old Silver [G]died
Last [Cadd9]Saturday [G]evening
Or [Em]was it [D]more like
[Cadd9]Ten years ag[G]o?
She laid [G]two dozen [G]roses
On the [Cadd9]top of his [G]coffin
And [Em]buried them [D]deep
Where they [Cadd9]never would [G]grow
Lord she [Em]buried them [D]deep
Where they [Cadd9]never would [G]grow
Verse 2:
Now the Irish are funny
They'll cry when they have to
And the lady she moaned
Such a mournful sound
Me and the Mexican
Just finished the bottle
And remembered the days
When Old Silver was around
Yea remembered the days
When Old Silver was around
Bridge:
[G-Am-Em7]         Chorus:
[C]Old Silver [C]took
The [F]best of it [C]with him
The [G]lovers and the [D]dealers
And the [Cadd9]dreamers of [G]dreams
Bridge:
[C]Old Silver [C]took
The [F]love of a [C]lady
Who [G]never got [D]over
Old [Cadd9]Silver and [G]me
Lord she [Em]never got [D]over
Old [Cadd9]Silver and [G]me

[Em-D-Cadd9-G]             Verse 3:
Old Silver had the magic
And he carried the money
With the grace of a gambler
And he lost it for years
He knew his lines better
Than a good carney barker
Wore the best damn boots
That you ever have seen
Had the best snakeskin boots
That you ever have seen
Verse 4:
Now the lady she loved him
She never asked questions
Though she lay awake wonderin
On many a night
She swore she was leavin
Most every morning
But she always would kiss him
When he turned out the lights
She was always right there
When he turned out the lights

Verse 5:
Now there's always a sidekick
In every B Western
Who's always in love
With a lady who leaves
She can't stand the memory
So I really don't blame her
For takin the very
First Greyhound she'd seen
God I hate her for takin
the first Greyhound she'd seen

[G]Old Silver [G]died
Last [Cadd9]Saturday [G]evening
Or [Em]was it [D]more like
[Cadd9]Ten years ag[G]o?
