[D]INT[D/F#]RO[G] [D] [D/F#] [G]
I was [D]sittin' in a truckstop,
Watchin' [G]tumbleweeds roll [D]by.
Tryin' to read the menu,
When the [A]waitress caught my eye.
[D] She pulled a pencil [D/F#]from her hair,
And [G]leaned across the bar.
[D]I did my best not to stare,
But [A]man, she made it [D]hard.[G/B]
I [D]asked that trucker next to me,
Hey, [G]what looks good to[D]day?
He said I know what's on your mind,
And [A]boy, there ain't no way.
[D] Get yourself some [D/F#]apple pie,
And [G]something cool to drink.
I [D]know you want the special,
And I [A]like the way you [D]think.[D(add9)] [D]
But [G]you can't have the waitress,
Boy, [D]everybody's tried.
There's a [A]cowboy down in Abilene,
Who [D]keeps her satisfied.
They got a [G]hundred acre dream
That's gettin' [D]closer [D/F#]every [G]day.
Just a [D]few more [D/F#]plates of [G]ham and [G/B]eggs,
And a [A]few good rides a[D]way.[D/F#] [G]
[D]Hard times hit West Texas,
Damn near [G]everything's for [D]sale.
But there's some things we hold sacred,
When [A]everything else fails.
[D] When we're down to [D/F#]nothing,
Out here, [G]everybody shares.
[D]Most of us have lost our dreams,
So [A]we bought into [D]theirs.[Dsus]
I've [D]seen her walk a hundred miles,
[G]Up and down this [D]floor.
I've never seen her fail to smile,
When [A]he limps through that door.
[D] So when you're done, you [D/F#]leave a tip,
And [G]make it nice and fat.
And feel [D]lucky you can own a piece,
Of [A]something like [D]that.
But [G]you can't have the waitress,
Boy, [D]everybody's tried.
There's a [A]cowboy down in Abilene,
Who [D]keeps her satisfied.
They got a [G]hundred acre dream
That's gettin' [D]closer [D/F#]every [G]day.
Just a [D]few more [D/F#]plates of [G]ham and [G/B]eggs,
And a [A]few good rides a[D]way.
No [G]you can't have the waitress,
Boy, [D]everybody's tried.
There's a [A]cowboy down in Abilene,
Who [D]keeps her satisfied.
They got a [G]hundred acre dream
That's gettin' [D]closer [D/F#]every [G]day.
Just a [D]few more [D/F#]plates of [G]ham and [G/B]eggs,
And a [A]few good rides a[D]way.
Just a few more [D/F#]plates of [G]ham and eggs,
And a [A]few good rides a[D]way.[D/F#] [G] [D]
