A Guy Named Joe  Coyote Grace

A Guy Named Joe - (c) Joe Stevens
[Em]The wind has c[Cadd9]ome to take me down a n[D]otch,
[Cadd9]A peg, or a level or [Em]two
The swollen[Cadd9] moon has got
Her s[D]ights set on me t[Cadd9]oo
[Em]The devil s[Cadd9]un gonna take me h[D]igher
[Cadd9]Higher than I ever been b[Em]efore
I told my [Cadd9]mama, no
[D]I can?t take no more[Cadd9]
I can?t take no m[Em]ore[Cadd9] [D] [Cadd9]
[Em]The wind has co[Cadd9]me to take me do[D]wn
To the empty [Cadd9]farm where I grew up on the l[Em]and
I built this c[Cadd9]hildhood for a b[D]oy
With my o[Cadd9]wn two hands
[Em]I look a[Cadd9]round, them bony t[D]rees
And sunken [Cadd9]cows, there?s almost [Em]snow
Nobody knows no[Cadd9]thing
[D]Except what me and the c[Cadd9]row do know[Em] [Cadd9] [D] [Cadd9]
[D]Who am I to c[G]hange my l[Cadd9]ife?
[D]Who am I to f[G]uck with f[Cadd9]orm?
[D]Who am I to w[G]eather a s[Cadd9]torm?
[Cadd9]But I g[D]o s[Cadd9]low
[Cadd9]I said [D]goo[Cadd9]dbye to everyone I know
[Cadd9]And one[D] mo[Cadd9]rning I awoke
And I was this gu[D]y named Joe
[Em]The wind has c[Cadd9]ome to take me do[D]wn to the field
[Cadd9]To dream by the light of the [Em]moon
No, there ai[Cadd9]n?t no coming h[D]ome,
No going [Cadd9]back, skipping J[Em]une
[Em]I sit by the w[Cadd9]ater down by the fre[D]eway
The cotton i[Cadd9]s hot and the corn is [Em]high
Don?t know what I?m going t[Cadd9]o do
With mys[D]elf tonight[Cadd9]
[D]Who am I to c[G]hange my n[Cadd9]ame?
[D]Some things will al[G]ways stay th[Cadd9]e same
[D]There really ain?t [G]no one to bl[Cadd9]ame
[D]Can?t expect nobo[G]dy to live in tha[Cadd9]t pain
[Cadd9]But I know you m[D]iss me[Cadd9] so
[Cadd9]I said goodbye to e[D]veryone I [Cadd9]know
[Cadd9]And one mor[D]ning I [Cadd9]awoke
And I was this g[D]uy named Joe...
