Th[C]ere was a m[G]otorcycle m[C]ama and her m[F]an
W[Fm]ith a wind-burnt t[C]an and a H[G]arley[Am] [G]
Ro[C]arin' through B[G]akersfield w[C7]hen her water b[F]roke
They p[Dm]ulled into a h[G]ospital and f[D]or a little j[G]oke
T[F]hey n[Em]amed him H[Dm]arley[G]
They b[Am]ought a sidecar
A[Em]nd a sm[D]all ban[Dm7]danna b[G]and
And t[F]hey l[Em]oved t[Dm]heir H[G]arl[C]ey[Em] [C] [G]
Sl[C]idin' sideways, [G]up the coast
Cr[C]uisin' highway o[F]ne
The s[Fm]idecar came und[C]one
No one n[G]oticed[Am] [G] [G7]
Th[C]rashing through a g[G]olden meadow
It c[C]ame to rest right wh[F]ere
A f[Dm]armer's wife cried
"J[G]esus Christ has a[Dm7]nswered all our pr[G]ayers"
And t[F]hey n[Em]amed him H[Dm]arley[C] [G7]
B[Am]ecause of a tat[Em]too
That cl[D]aimed his [Dm7]name was t[G]ru-[Em]ue
And t[F]hey l[Em]oved t[Dm]heir H[G]arl[C]ey
He was r[F]aised upon a farm, c[Em]radled in the arms
Of B[Dm]eulah and B[C]arney
But then [F]at a restless age t[Em]hey unlocked his cage
And [Dm]he became a c[Em7]arney

T[C]here was a m[G]otorcycle d[C]aredevil del[F]uxe
J[Fm]umping fifty tr[C]ucks at the fa[G]irgrounds[Am] [G]
A m[C]iddle aged h[G]ippie couple [C7]way up in the st[F]ands
H[Dm]eard the crowd ch[G]anting 'loud,
The [Dm7]name of this young m[G]an
And t[F]hey c[Em]alled him H[Dm]arley[Am] [G7]
And that h[Am]ippie couple s[Em]miled
Could this [Dm]be their l[Dm7]ong lost ch[G]ild?
And So t[F]hey m[A]et [D7]Harley[G] [Em7]
Conv[Am]inced him of the n[Em]ews
When t[E]hey compared tatt[A7]oos
And [Dm]th-[Em]ey l[F]ov[F#]ed t[G]he[Am]ir [Bbm]Har-[G]ar-l[C]ey [G] [C] [G] [C] [G] [C]
