Watermelon Dream  Guy Clark

[E]Well, the sun was hot and the dust rose up like smoke[A]
So we hid [B]beneath the elm tree and watched the watermelons float[E]
[E]There in a big 'ol tub o[E7]f ice
And we'd split[A] em open with a kitchen knife[A7]
And eve[E]rybody had a sli[C#m]ce it was a watermelon d[A]ream[B] [E]
[E]Ain't nothin' sweeter than a watermelon[G#m] dream
[A]'Cept sittin on the front porch eatin' that peach ice cre[E]am
[E]When life is really sweeter than it se[C#m]ems
[F#m]That's what you've got to call a watermel[B]on dream
With sti[E]cky hands and and faces we fought the yellow-jackets to a draw[A]
Then we used [B]the rind for second base and played a little hard b[E]all
[E]I don't know how much we[E7] ate
[A]But we all got the belly[A7]-ache
And eve[E]rybody stayed up way too late[C#m]
It was a wat[A]ermelon[B] dream[E]
Then a litt[E]le after sundown we'd be runnin out of [A]steam
So we'd light[B] a roman candle and try to hold on to the dr[E]eam
[E]Maybe slip out behind a [E7]car
[A]Take a little tastes from [A7]a jar
[E]Then just lay back and count the [C#m]stars
That's called a waterm[A]elon dr[B]eam[E]
