Why Me  The Lost Trailers

Capo 1
Verse I
[G]Sometimes I go walking through the long tall grass
[Cadd9]Wonder how long hard times will last
G Gmaj7 Bmaug5 G6th Cadd9
For this backward soul on a road that god knows where
[G]As hard as I try ain''t left no track
[Cadd9]It''s not enough to find my way back
G Gmaj7 Bmaug 5 G6th Cadd9
I hit the ground like broken glass and just lay there
Singing wh[G]y me, oh why[Cadd9] me
G Gmaj7 Bmaug5 G6th Cadd9
And I throw another empty bottle up against the wall
And I say why me,[G] oh why me[Cadd9]
G Gmaj7 Bmaug5 G6th Cadd9
But pitty never ever did me any kinda good at all
So I walk on[G] [Cadd9]
Verse II
And I wound up on the capital steps
Watching the lobbyists smoking cigarettes
As They compare their shoes and their country club dues And who got who by the short hairs
Standing there in their high dollar suits
Looking down at my tattered old jeans and boots
And this weathered guitar that seems to follow me everywhere God it follows me everywhere
Playing why me, oh why me
All I got''s another song about how money makes and breaks the law
And I sing why me, oh why me
I''m just a broke troubadore with a bark for the underdog
So I walk on
D, C, D, C
Verse III
Now I ain''t Jesus, but I can relate
To a man looking death square in the face
Even he hit his knees with a plea in the garden of gethsemane
To his holy father he raised his eyes
In his darkest hours he cried
Please would you take this cup from me
Praying why me, oh why me
Knowing all the while he had to carry that cross and hang there
When I say why me, oh me
I know that somewhere up in heaven there''s a big old book with my name there
So I walk on, I rock on
Even when I''m singing, why me, I rock on
Even when I''m singing, why me, I rock on
Even when I''m singing, why me
