Ships  Patty Loveless

By Patty Loveless
Capo 3
[G] [C] [G] [C]  
[G]Eddie had a few days comin'
So he [C]took a Las Vegas jaunt
[D]Out to the land of supply and demand
Where you can [G]get anything you [D]want
[G]He wasn't lookin' for true love
[C]No, he didn't believe in that stuff
[D]Eddie LeGrande was a hard workin' man
Who just needed a little good [G]luck
His [C]shoes were a little worn
His [G]hair was a little [Em]thin
Just [Am]another old [C/B]sailor
[C]Waitin' on his [D]ship to come [G]in
[G]Lily was a two time loser
Who said that [C]love was just a roll of the dice
She [D]acted real tough, said once ain't enough
For [G]me I learned my lesson [D]twice
But [G]deep in her heart lived a young girl
[C]Dreamin' a young girl's dream
[D]And that young girl was who Eddie ran into
Over by the slot mac[G]hines
Her [C]face was a little pale
Her [G]dress was a little [Em]thin
Oh but [Am]lookin' at [C/B]her was like
[C]Watchin' his[D] ship come [G]in
[G]Well, he bought her a cup of coffee
With the [C]quarters he meant to play
They [D]went for a bite and they talked all night
'Til they [G]said what they needed to [D]say
Then they [G]found 'em an all night chapel
With a [C]heart shaped honeymoon suite
And [D]somewhere tonight in the neon light
Two hearts can't be [G]beat
And he's [C]singin' a little song
She's [G]grinnin' a little [Em]grin
And [Am]they're holdin' each [C/B]other
[C]Watchin' their [D]ship come [G]in
Her [C]face was a little pale
His [G]hair was a little [Em]thin
But they're [Am]two young [C/B]lovers
[C]Watchin' their [D]ship come [G]in
Just [Am]holdin' eac[C/B]h other
[C]Watchin' their [D]ship come [G]in
