Cold Dog Soup  Guy Clark

Capo on 3
[Am] [G] [F] [E7]  
[Am]William Butler Yeats in jeans
[G]Got up to play guitar and sing
[F]In some joint in Mission Beach [E7]last night
[Am]At the door sat Tom Waits
[G]In a pork pie hat and silver skates
[F]Jugglin' three collection plates,[E7] Jesus Christ
[Am]Townes Van Zandt standin' at the bar
[G]Skinnin' a Hollywood movie star
[F]Can't remember where he parked his car
[E7]Or to whom he lost the keys
[Am]Full of angst and hillbilly haiku
[G]What's a poor Ft. Worth boy to do
[F]Go on rhyme something for em' man
[E7]Show em' how you really feel
( Tab from: )
[F]Aint no money in [C]poetry
[G]That's what sets the [Am]poet free
[F]I've had all the [C]freedom I can[G] stand
[F]Cold dog soup and [C]rainbow pie
[G]Is all it takes to[Am] get me by
[F]Fool my belly till the [C]day I die
[G]Cold dog soup and [Am]rainbow pie
[Am]Ginsberg and Kearouac
[G]Shootin' dice playin' Ramblin' Jack's [F]guitar
With the cowboy paintin' [E7]pickguard on it
[Am]And they sat in the back and they drank for free
[G]And rhymed orange with Rosalie
[F]Now there's a pride of lions [E7]to draw to
