The Grapes On The Vine

Waylon Jennings

 C/G
        There are songs that birds don't sing to people
 F
        There are secrets that keep right through to the end
 G
        There are heroes who hide until forever
 C/G
        And i'm singing this song for one of 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
        Going either somewhere or nowhere
 C/G
        Going without me,without you

Chorus:
 C/G
        For he is this world's constant orphan
 F
        Traveling out his lone time
 G
        Living on apples from orchards
 C/G
        Dying from grapes on the vine

2nd PART:

Verse 3:
 C/GAmF
        You can find him in big city winters
 C/GG
        Down where the mission bell cries
 AmF
        And sorrow echoes through summer
 GC/G
        As he tries to close all his eyes

Verse 4:
 C/GAmF
        You can find him in Pittsburgh in Christmas
 C/GG
        You can find him in Buffalo in June
 AmF
        And he knows all the backroads between them
 GC/G
        Like the gypsy knows the moon

Verse 5:
 AmF
        And it's route 22 all over again
 GC/G
        Stick your thumb out and try to look like somebody's friend
 AmF
        Look strong at the man,gentle at the girl
 GC/G
        And puzzled at the rest of the world

Chorus.

 G
        Living on apples from orchards
 C/G
        Dying from grapes on the vine
