Too Long in the Wasteland  James McMurtry

Subject: CRDPRO: Too Long In The Wastland - James McMurtry
Someone was looking for some James McMurtry songs.
I transcribed this some time ago. Corrections welcome.
====================================================================
[D]Hear the trucks on the highway, And the tickin' of the clocks
There's a ghost of a moon in the afternoon, Bullet holes in the mailbox [G]
Bullet holes in the mailbox, Keyholes in my mind [D]
[Bb] Too long in the wasteland, [A] Too long in the wasteland
I've [D]fallin' behind
[D]She said won't you come see me, When the sun goes down
It'll be just like the old days, When I used to let you hang around [G]
Well I don't know, I might not speak the language any more [D]
[Bb] Too long in the wasteland, [A] Too long in the wasteland
I've [D]closed some doors
[D]People in the village, Watch the children play
At the sight of a stranger, They call the kids away [G]
Just leave that man alone, I hear the mothers say [D]
[Bb] Too long in the wasteland, [A] Too long in the wasteland
What's [D]made him that way
[D]I hadn't intended, To bend the rules
Wiskey dont make liers, It just makes fools [G]
So I didn't mean to say it, But I meant what I said [D]
[Bb] Too long in the wasteland, [A] Too long in the wasteland
Must have [D]gone to my head
Instrumental with some vocal sounds
[D]Jet trails in the sunset, a long way away
cuttin' cross the horizon, At the edge of the day [G]
And it calls out to me, Come fly away, I've been [D]
[Bb] Too long in the wasteland, [A] Too long in the wasteland
I believe I'll [D]have to stay
[Bb] Too long in the wasteland, [A] Too long in the wasteland
I'll [D]have to stay
Final instrumental
[D] There's a ghost of a moon in the afternoon
Bullet holes in the mailbox [G]
Bullet holes in the mailbox [D]
