Sweetwater Texas
transcribed by:Aaron Komara

G            D            C          G
When I was a young man in Sweetwater Texas
G              C            D
Just one thing stayed on my mind
G               D          C       G
To ride a white horse over Durango mountain
          C                G
And leave Sweetwater Texas behind
                    D            C          G 
But I turned twenty one there in Sweetwater Texas
               C            D
Just one thing made me stay there

G           D          C        G
I wanted to leave, but I was in love
Em                C              G
The girl with the chestnut brown hair



C                D       
And there came a time, 
G                     C
when she said shed be mine
Em         C         D
And go any place any time
      G           D        C       G 
So we rode a grey dog over Durango mountain
         C          D       G
And left Sweetwater Texas behind

G                      D                C          G     
It was thundering and lightning when we left Nolan County
G              C                 D
The bus rolled along through the night
G               C            G
And old 36 was a magic black demon 
G                   D            G
leading towards the citys bright lights
G              D          C          G 
we pulled into Houston at ten in the morning
G                 C           D 
our hopes were as high as the sky
G                 D           C           G
but hopes turn to weeks, then years, then forever
        Em        D             G
I never knew how fast time goes by

C                  D
And cowboys sellin cars
G                    C
And country girls in bars
Em      C               D
Somehow just donít seem fair
      G         D           C          G 
And I wanted to die cause I knew I was loosing 
C                 D              G 
The girl with the chestnut brown hair

C               D
So many times I said
    G        C
Id rather be dead
C                        D
Than take downs to go to bed
G                   C
And ups to clear my head
                              D
But If the good lord sees his way
          G             C
To let me live one more day
Em (HOLD)              D
Im so tired of being alone
      G            D          C       G
Gonna ride a white horse over Durango mountain 
         C          D        G
And make Sweetwater Texas my home.
