The Houston Kid  Guy Clark

[Verse 1] 
Now the [G]Houston Kid's got a [C]new pair of [G]jeans
But he's [D]got no soap, he got no [A7]washing ma[D]chine
Now the [G]Houston Kid he's feelin' [C]tight and he's mean
And he's [D]tryin' to figure out how his pants got [G]clean
[Cborus] 
Well, he's [D]doin' his wash in a [C]tub full of [G]whiskey
[D]Hangin' his threads on a [C]very thin [D]line
[G]Tryin' to tell the man in [C]charge of the dryers
What a [D]great job he's doin' fakin' sun[G]shine
[Verse 2] 
Now the [G]Houston Kid he seems[C] hard presse[G]d
'Cause he[D] hit the world naked, n[A7]ow he's he[D]aded back dressed
As the H[G]ouston Kid, no more and n[C]o less
If your d[D]ice fit your pocket then your pants pas[G]s the test
[Cborus] 
Well, he's [D]doin' his wash in a [C]tub full of [G]whiskey
[D]Hangin' his threads on a [C]very thin [D]line
[G]Tryin' to tell the man in [C]charge of the dryers
What a [D]great job he's doin' fakin' sun[G]shine
[Verse 3] 
Now some[G] say the Houston Kid[C] is bent[G]
But if yo[D]u've got to do your was[A7]h then you[D]'ve got to pay some rent
Then yo[G]u've got to pay some rent[C] so the Houston Kid he just up and he went
And love [D]could buy back the dimes that he'd spen[G]t
[Cborus] 
Well, he's [D]doin' his wash in a [C]tub full of [G]whiskey
[D]Hangin' his threads on a [C]very thin [D]line
[G]Tryin' to tell the man in [C]charge of the dryers
What a [D]great job he's doin' fakin' sun[G]shine
