All Just to Get to You  Joe Ely

Music and Lyrics by Joe Ely
From the Album, Letter To Laredo
Transcribed by Steve Krall (
All Just To Get To You
Intro: G G F C (repeat)
Verse 1:
I have [G]stumbled on the plains
[G]Staggered in the wind
[G]Stood at a crossroad or two
[D]Cried to a river
[D]Swept to the sea
[G]All just to [C]get to [G]you
Verse 2:
I have flagged a yellow cab
Hopped a rusty freight
Sang till my lips turned blue
Flown a silver bird
On the tops of the clouds
All just to get to you
I [C]ran too hard,
I [G]played too Rough
I [C]gave my Love
Not [G]near Enough
I [C]bled too red
I [G]cried too blue
I [D]beat my fist
[D]Against the moon
All just to [C]get to [G]you
Verse 3:
I have run from St. Paul
To Wichita Falls
Call'd you from sunny Baton Rouge
Hocked everything
From my watch to my ring
All just to get to you
Bb Bbsus (repeat four times)
then hit: C C C
Verse 4:
From the California Shore
Where the mighty ocean roars
To the lands of the Hopi and the Sioux
I walked the desert sands
Crossed the Rio Grande
All just to get to you
Verse 5:
I have stumbled on the plains
Staggered in the wind
Stood at a crossroad or two
Cried to a river
Swept to the sea
All just to get to you
Repeat and fade:
[G]All just to [F]get to [C]you
