Navajo Rug  Ian Tyson

Navajo Rug
Sung By: Ian Tyson
(My version of this great Ian Tyson song)
(Capo 2nd Fret)
Intro: G Em C D
Verse 1.
[D]Well it's [G]two eggs up on whiskey toast * And [Am]home fries on the side
[C]Wash it down with the truck coffee * [Am7]Burns up your in[D]sides
Just a C[G]anyon-Colorado Diner * And a wa[Am]itress I did love
We s[C]at in the back 'neath an old stuffed bear
D (stop)
On a worn out Navajo rug
Verse 2.
Well Old J[G]ack, the boss, he closed at six * And it was [Am]Katie bar the door
She'd pull down that Navajo [Am7]rug * And she'd s[D]pread it 'cross the floor
Hey, I saw li[G]ghtning in the sacred mountains
Saw t[Am]he dance of turtle doves * [C]sittin' next to Katie
On t[D]hat old Navajo rug
[D]Aye, Aye, A[G]ye, K[Em]atie * S[C]hades of red and b[D]lue
Aye, Aye, A[G]ye, K[Em]atie * W[C]hatever became of the Navajo rug and y[G]ou
[Em]Katie, s[C]hades of red and b[D]lue
Verse 3.
Well I saw old Jack about a year ago
He said the place burned to the ground
And all I saved was an old bear tooth
And Katie, she'd left town
Ah, but Katie, she got her souvenir too
Jack spat a tobacco plug
Well you should have seen her a-coming through the smoke
Draggin' that Navajo rug
(Repeat Chorus)
Verse 4.
Now every time I cross those sacred mountains
And lightning breaks from above
It always takes me back in time
To my long lost Katie love
But everything keeps on a-movin'
Yeah, an' everybody's on the go
You don't find things that last anymore
Like an old woven Navajo
(Repeat Chorus twice and fade)
