Sleepy Eyed Boy  John Prine

Where are the boot straps,
To lift myself up?
[G]Where is the well
Where I once [D]filled my cup?
[G]Where does this sorrow
All t[D]urn into joy?
And where oh where is the sleepy eyed bo[A]y?[D]
( Tab from: )
Where is my true love
When the wind starts to moan?
Is she out in the wild,
Is she there all alone?
Have I cast her aside,
Like an unwanted toy?
Tell me where oh where is the sleepy eyed boy?
He’s goin’ down the backroads
In a cold pourin’ rain
He’s a waitin’ for a postcard
In the south coast of Spain
Postmarked from a sweetheart
Back in ol’ Illinois
Sayin’ where oh where is my sleepy eyed boy?
That’s pretty much it. The rest of the song follows that chord progression with segments
picking in between. Couldn’t find these chords anywhere so I thought I might as well
a swing at it.
