Thelma - Reckless Kelly
Intro: C
I'm d[C]own to one key in my po[Dm]cket,
the b[C]us station lo[G]cker down[C]town,
the s[G]oles of my shoes ,
are as t[C]hin as my w[Am]allet,
i [Dm]been sleeping close to the gr[G]ound
but b[C]uried up here in my [Dm]memory,
is a [C]head full of [G]living room [C]hits,
i [G]wrote about thelma when [C]we were an [Am]item,
and[Dm] i was worth m[G]ore than two [C]bits,
so i'll [F]sing you a song about [C]thelma,
if y[G]ou have a quarter to [C]spare,
if y[G]ou had the time or a [C]bottle of [Am]wine,
that [Dm]you'd be willing to [G]share,
and [F]later i'll show you a [C]picture,
of [G]thelma when she's in her p[C]rime,
if [G]you want to see mr [C]i've got the [Am]key,
and the [Dm]bus station [G]locker take [C]dimes,
i h[C]ad me a band in the [Dm]60's,
we [C]played east t[G]exas a l[C]ot
t[G]helma could sing so [C]we moved na[Am]shville,
and [Dm]in '68, she got h[G]ot,
a hi[C]gh flyin' record pr[Dm]oducer,
told th[C]elma he'd [G]make her a st[C]ar,
he wi[G]ned her and dined her and s[C]tole her a[Am]way
and [Dm]left me with [G]my old gui[C]tar,
she [C]died last year on my [Dm]birthday,
the d[C]ay that [G]i turned 6[C]5,
[G]most have forgotten in[C]cluding her [Am]fans,
but i'm [Dm]keeping her memory a[G]live,
cuz i'[C]ve got this key in my [Dm]pocket,
i've h[C]ad since '[G]72,[C]
i've b[G]uilt her a shrine in that [C]locker down[Am]town,
and i t[Dm]hink she'd be [G]pleased if she k[C]new
so i'll [F]sing you a song about t[C]helma,
if y[G]ou have a quarter to s[C]pare,
if [G]you have the time or a [C]bottle of w[Am]ine,
and y[Dm]ou'd be willing to s[G]hare,
l[F]ater i'll show you a [C]picture,
of t[G]helma when she's in her [C]prime,
if y[G]ou wanna see mr i[C]'ve got the [Am]key,
and the [Dm]bus station [G]locker takes d[C]imes
if yo[G]u wanna see mr [C]i've got the [Am]key
and the [Dm]bus station l[G]ocker takes [C]dimes
