When the Word Was Thunderbird  Billy Joe Shaver

"Billy Joe Shaver
Verse 1:
[Am] Up every morning at the crack of dawn
[G] Nights as short as the days are long
[D]Life turned out to be another maga[Em]zine
[Am] Livin' with a stranger now
[G] Girl i knew got away somehow
[D]She went out with two bit gaso[Em]line
On the go,back - you know what i mean
Now [Am]when the word was Thunderbird
[G] And the price recorded twice
[D] Drinkin' wine and lovin' you was[Em] fun
Verse 2:
[Am] Ah,but love turned out to be a passin' thing
[G] Different bird of a different wing
[D]Some damn fool put a dollar twenty [Em]nine
On a jug of Thunderbird wine
And [Am]Lord i don't know if i'm gonna make it
[G]Don't know if i'll have the strength to take it
[D]Everything's hung up in yester[Em]day
Verse 3:
[Am] There's you a secret-minded social girl
[G]Takin' short cuts in a woman's world
[D]She won't let her hair down when i'm [Em]home
S[Am]ociety's just slavery
And [G]security is killing me
[D]I work hard for it but i give it all a[Em]way
If i could go back to yesterday
