Painted Lady  Roger McGuinn





[G]Followin the stars through the [D]honkey-tonks and bars
[F6a9]Dream away on a [Ca9]country music [G]pride
[G]Start the evenin' by myself,
but you can [D]bet by the hour of twelve
Gonna have a [F6a9]pretty painted [Ca9]lady by my [G]side [G]
Talkin' ^?bout a[F6a9] pretty painted[Ca9] lady by my[G] side [G]
Now I'll tell that woman how it used to be
when the west was wild and the land was free
How a western word would travel for a country mile
Then one day when the drugstores came
and forced my hand to play a truckin' game
Wishin' to be a cowboy all the while
Yes, I was [F]wishin' to be a [C]cowboy all the [G]while
[E-]Painted Lady tell me of the past [A-]gone by
[G]Hold me like the open range and [C]ride me high
Take me to the days when your dress was made of calico or gingham
And a [C]man was a [A-]man.... [F6a9]
[G] [G]  
Painted Lady with your painted face
Tell me bout your life in this painted place
Tell me with your lovin' lips and lovin' eyes
I can feel the pain, I can see the fears
on the painted cheeks that hide the tears
Of a lovely lonesome cowgirl in disguise
Talkin' bout a lovely lonesome cowgirl in disguise
