Navajo Rug2-crd  Ian Tyson

[D]Well it's t[G]wo eggs up on whiskey toast * And h[Am]ome fries on the side
Wash it down with the road house c[Am7]offee * B[D]urns up your insides
Just a C[G]anyon-Colorado Diner * And a wa[Am]itress I did love
I s[C]at in the back 'neath an old stuffed bear
D (stop)
And a worn out Navajo rug
Verse 2.
Well Old J[G]ack, the boss, he quit at six * And it's K[Am]atie bar the door
She'd pull down that Navajo [Am7]rug * And she'd s[D]pread it across the floor
Hey, I saw li[G]ghtning 'cross the sacred mountains
Saw d[Am]ance of the turtle doves * I was l[C]yin' next to Katie
On t[D]hat old Navajo rug
[D]Aye, Aye, A[G]ye, K[Em]atie * S[C]hades of red and b[D]lue
Aye, Aye, A[G]ye, K[Em]atie * W[C]hatever became of the Navajo rug and y[G]ou
[Em]Katie, s[C]hades of red and b[D]lue
Verse 3.
Well I saw old Jack about a year ago
Said the place burned to the ground
And all he saved was that old bear tooth
And Katie, she's left town
Oh, but Katie, she got her souvenir too
Jack spat a tobacco plug
Well you should have seen her a-coming through the smoke
Draggin' that Navajo rug
(Repeat Chorus)
Verse 4.-except the last line starting with Katie)
So every time I cross the sacred mountains
And lightning breaks above
It always takes me back in time
To my long lost Katie love
But everything keeps on a-moving
Yeah, everybody's on the go
You don't find things that last anymore
Like a doubled over Navajo
(Repeat Chorus twice and fade)
