Thirsty Boots  Eric Andersen

Eric Andersen Thirsty Boots written by Eric Andersen
[C]You've long been [C/B]on the [C/A]open [C/G]road
You've been [F]sleepin in the [C]rain[C/G]
From the [C]dirty [C/B]words and [C/A]muddy [C/G]cells
Your [F]clothes are soiled and [G]stained.
But [C]the dirty [C/B]words and [C/A]muddy [C/G]cells
Will [F]soon be hid in [G]shame
[C]So only stop to [F]rest your[C]self
Till [F]you'll go off [G]again.
So [C]take off your [F]thirsty boots
And [C]stay for [F]awhile
Your [C]feet are [C/B]hot and [C/A]weary
[Dm]From a dusty [G]mile
And [C]maybe I can [F]make you laugh
[C]Maybe I can [F]try
I'm just [C]lookin' [C/B]for the [C/A]evening
And the [Dm]morning [G]in your [C]eyes.
[C]But tell me [C/B]of the [C/A]ones you [C/G]saw
As [F]far as you could [C]see[C/G]
Acr[C]oss the plain [C/B]from [C/A]field to [C/G]town
A-m[F]arching to be [G]free
And [C]of the [C/B]rusted [C/A]prison [C/G]gates
That [F]tumbled by de[G]gree
Like [C]laughing children [F]one by [C]one
They [F]looked like you and [G]me
So [C]take off your [F]thirsty boots
And [C]stay for [F]awhile
Your [C]feet are [C/B]hot and [C/A]weary
[Dm]From a dusty [G]mile
And [C]maybe I can [F]make you laugh
[C]Maybe I can [F]try
I'm just [C]lookin' [C/B]for the [C/A]evening
And the [Dm]morning [G]in your [C]eyes.
[C]I know you [C/B]are no [C/A]stranger [C/G]down
The [F]crooked rainbow [C]trails[C/G]
From [C]dancing cliff-[C/B]edged [C/A]shattered [C/G]sills
Of [F]slender shackled [G]jails
[C]But the voices [C/B]drift [C/A]up from [C/G]below
As the [F]walls they're being [G]scaled
[C]All of t[G]his and [C]more
Your [F]song shall not be [G]failed.
So [C]take off your [F]thirsty boots
And [C]stay for [F]awhile
Your [C]feet are [C/B]hot and [C/A]weary
[Dm]From a dusty [G]mile
And [C]maybe I can [F]make you laugh
[C]Maybe I can [F]try
I'm just [C]lookin' [C/B]for the [C/A]evening
And the [Dm]morning [G]in your [C]eyes.
