Night Riderâ??s Lament   Garth Brooks

Night Rider's Lament  Garth Brooks






 


 One [(D)]night while I was out a r[(G)]idin'


 The [(D)]grave yard shift, midnight 'til [(A)]dawn


 The [(G)]moon was [(A)]bright as a r[(D)]eadin' l[(Bm)]ight


 For a l[(A)]etter from an [(G)]old friend back [(D)]home


 And he asked me


 [(G)]Why do you [(A)]ride for your [(D)]money


 Tell me[(G)] why do you [(A)]rope for short [(D)]pay


 You ain't a'[(G)]gettin' now[(A)]here


 And you're [(D)]losin' your [(Bm)]share [(A)] [(G)]


 Boy, you [(A)]must have gone [(G)]crazy out [(D)]there


 He said [(D)]last night I ran into J[(G)]enny


 She's [(D)]married and has a good[(A)] life


 And boy you [(G)]sure missed the [(A)]track


 When you [(D)]never come [(Bm)]back


 She's the [(A)]perfect pr[(G)]ofessional's [(D)]wife


 


 And she asked me


 [(G)]Why does he [(A)]ride for his [(D)]money


 And [(G)]tell me why does he [(A)]rope for short [(D)]pay


 He ain't a'[(G)]gettin' n[(A)]owhere


 And he's [(D)]losin' his [(Bm)]share [(A)] [(G)]


 Boy he [(A)]must've gone [(G)]crazy out [(D)]there


 Ah but they've [(G)]never [(A)]seen the [(D)]Northern [(Bm)]Lights


 They've [(G)]never seen a [(A)]hawk on the [(D)]wing


 They've [(G)]never spent s[(A)]pring on the [(D)]Great [(Bm)]Divide[(A)] [(G)]


 And they've [(A)]never heard ole' [(G)]camp cookie [(D)]sing [(E)]


 [(E)]Well I read up the last of my l[(A)]etter


 And I [(E)]tore off the stamp for black [(B)]Jim


 And when [(A)]Billy rode [(B)]up to relieve [(E)]me [(C#m)]


 He just [(B)]looked at my [(A)]letter and [(E)]grinned


 


 He said now


 [(A)]Why do they [(B)]ride for their [(E)]money


 Tell me[(A)] why do they [(B)]ride for short [(E)]pay


 They ain't a[(A)]'gettin' no[(B)]where


 And they're [(E)]losin' their [(C#m)]share [(B)] [(A)]


 Boy, they [(B)]must've gone [(A)]crazy out [(E)]there


 Son, they [(A)]all must be [(B)]crazy out [(E)]there
