Casey's Last Ride  Kris Kristofferson


***************** CASEY 'S LAST RIDE *****************
written and performed by Kris Kristofferson.
Verse 1:
Cas[Am]ey joins the hollow sound of si[G]lent people walking down
The st[F]airway to the subway and the sh[Em]adows down below
Fo[Am]llowing the footsteps through the n[G]eon darkened corridors
Of s[F]ilent desperation,never sp[Em]eaking to a soul
Verse 2:
The p[F]oison air he's breathing has a di[Am]rty smell of dieing
Cause it's n[G]ever seen the sunshine and it's n[Em]ever felt the rain
Ca[Am]sey minds the arrows and ig[G]nores the fatal echoes
Of the cl[F]icking of the turnstile and the ra[Em]ttle of his chai[Am]ns
Verse 3:
"Oh[C]",she said "Casey it's been so long since i've seen y[G]ou"
"Here",she said "Just a kiss to make a body sm[C]ile"
"See",she said "I've put on new stockings just to please y[G]ou"
"Lord" she said "Casey can you only stay aw[C]hile"
Verse 4:
Ca[Am]sey leaves the underground and s[G]tops inside the golden crown
For so[F]mething wet to wipe away the ch[Em]ill that's on his bones
Se[Am]eing his reflection in the li[G]ves of all the lonely men
Who re[F]ach for anything they can to k[Em]eep from going home
Verse 5:
St[F]anding in the corner,Casey d[Am]rinks his pint of bitter
Never g[G]lancing in the mirror at the p[Em]eople passing by
He st[Am]umbles as he's leaving and he w[G]onders if the reason
Is the b[F]eer that's in his belly or the t[Em]ear that's in his e[Am]ye
Verse 6:
"O[C]h",she said "I suppose that you seldom think about [G]me"
"Now",she said "Now that you've a family of your o[C]wn"
"Still",she said "It's so blessed and good to feel your b[G]ody"
"Lord",she said "Casey it's a shame to be alo[C]ne"
Thanks to David M. Potter for the lyrics.
