Sweetwater Texas  The Charlie Daniels Band

transcribed by:Aaron Komara
[G]When I was a [D]young man in [C]Sweetwater [G]Texas
[G]Just one thing [C]stayed on my [D]mind
[G]To ride a white [D]horse over [C]Durango [G]mountain
And leave [C]Sweetwater Texas [G]behind
But I turned twenty [D]one there in [C]Sweetwater [G]Texas
Just one thing [C]made me stay [D]there
[G]I wanted to [D]leave, but [C]I was in [G]love
[Em]The girl with the [C]chestnut brown [G]hair
[C]And there came a [D]time,
[G]when she said shed be [C]mine
[Em]And go any [C]place any [D]time
So we [G]rode a grey [D]dog over [C]Durango [G]mountain
And left [C]Sweetwater [D]Texas be[G]hind
[G] [D] [C] [G] [G] [D] [C] [G] [G] [D] [C] [G]  
[G]It was thundering and l[D]ightning when we [C]left Nolan [G]County
[G]The bus rolled [C]along through the [D]night
[G]And old 36 was a[C] magic black [G]demon
[G]leading towards the [D]citys bright [G]lights
[G]we pulled into [D]Houston at [C]ten in the [G]morning
[G]our hopes were as [C]high as the [D]sky
[G]but hopes turn to [D]weeks, then [C]years, then [G]forever
I never [Em]knew how f[D]ast time goes [G]by
[C]And cowboys sellin [D]cars
[G]And country girls in [C]bars
[Em]Somehow [C]just don?t seem [D]fair
And I [G]wanted to [D]die cause I [C]knew I was [G]loosing
[C]The girl with the [D]chestnut brown [G]hair
[G] [D] [C] [G] [G] [D] [C] [G]  
[C]So many times I [D]said
Id r[G]ather be [C]dead
[C]Than take downs to go to [D]bed
[G]And ups to clear my [C]head
But If the good lord sees his [D]way
To let me [G]live one more [C]day
Im so tired of being alone
Gonna [G]ride a white [D]horse over [C]Durango [G]mountain
And make [C]Sweetwater [D]Texas my [G]home.
