The Grapes On The Vine  Waylon Jennings

    [C/G]    There are songs that birds don't sing to people
        There are s[F]ecrets that keep right through to the end
        There are h[G]eroes who hide until forever
        And i'm singing this song for one of [C/G]them


Verse 2:
    [C/G]    He's the man that you passed on the road there
      [F]  The one with his life on the loose
        G[G]oing either somewhere or nowhere
        Going without me,without [C/G]you


Chorus:
    [C/G]    For he is this world's constant orphan
      [F]  Traveling out his lone time
        L[G]iving on apples from orchards
        Dying from grapes on the v[C/G]ine


2nd PART:

Verse 3:
    [C/G]    You can f[Am]ind him in big city w[F]inters
        D[C/G]own where the mission bell cr[G]ies
        And s[Am]orrow echoes through s[F]ummer
        As he tr[G]ies to close all his [C/G]eyes


Verse 4:
   [C/G]     You can f[Am]ind him in Pittsburgh in Chr[F]istmas
        You can f[C/G]ind him in Buffalo in J[G]une
        And he k[Am]nows all the backroads betw[F]een them
      [G]  Like the gypsy knows the m[C/G]oon


Verse 5:
        And it's[Am] route 22[F] all over again
        Stick your th[G]umb out and try to look like [C/G]somebody's friend
        Look str[Am]ong at the man,g[F]entle at the girl
        And p[G]uzzled at the rest of the w[C/G]orld


Chorus.

        L[G]iving on apples from orchards
        Dying from grapes on the v[C/G]ine
