Photo Finish
Okay so this is a fairly easy song to play and also a lot of fun. When the line begins
with an E (every 2nd line) you sometimes have to hold the E for a long time and then the
D and A at the end are fairly quick. You just have to feel it. Let me know how I did. If 
you have any comments or corrections, let me know.
Capo 1

    E                     D           A
At seven this morning, I got on the phone
             D            E                A
And said to hold my bronc, as long as you can
My car broke down in Billings and they just got it put together
Iíll be photo finishing into old Cheyenne
Here I am in Sheridan and its 9 oíclock
In the morning, and times a-goiní fast
I just pulled Ďer over, had some coffee and a donut
And I bought the car a brand new tank of gas
Well I donít know if Iím gonna make it, itís 9:15
Iíll be lucky if I ever get there
By God now whatís that I hear, is it a sireen
Sure enough, he got me on his radar
He pulled up behind me and turned on those flashiní lights
A sign that I knew meant to pull it over
So I stomped on my brakes and as I skidded to a halt
I wiped out three reflector posts along the shoulder
He got out of his car and was a-walkiní real slow
So I jumped out and met him half way
He jerked out his gun and said Mister are you crazy
I ainít never seen nobody drive that way
I told him take it easy and he could put up that cannon
The way youíre shakiní it just might go off
He put up the gun as I explained my situation
He listened to my story, then he coughed
He wrote me out a ticket, that seemed to take forever
I took and as I headed for my car, that cop he hollered after me
And said hey cowboy you better slow down cause you canít outrun this radar
As I rolled on down the road I was a-cursiní and a-sweariní
About the ticket, that I had just acquired
I wondered if I oughta pay it or throw it out the window
But I might just set the damn thing a-fire
So I gunned it once again and was a travelliní down the highway
With the gas pedal mashed to the floor
When I came around a curve, and right there in the highway
Thereís more damn sheep than Iíve ever seen before
Iím goiní to fast to ever stop so I just close my eyes
As the car rolls on through the herd
When I opened up my eyes again thereís a sheep on the fender
And that herderís sayiní some mighty awful words
The sweats a-drippiní off my hands as I barrelled through old Wheatland
Iím a nervous wreck and I must be a sight
The flies inside this old car are buzziní all around me
I guess my 24 hour deodorant quit last night
60, 50, 40, 30, 20 miles more
The rodeo starts in another 18 minutes
I pull in through the main gate and I hear the anthem playiní
I canít believe it, thank God I finally made it
Thereís only one more obstacle thatís standiní in my way
Itís a nitwit, with a weekend badge
Heís standing by the gate and I slide Ďer to a halt
He says where in the hell are you goiní so doggone fast
I tell him Iím entered and I ainít got time to talk
My horse is in the chutes and Iím late
He says I need to get a pass, from the secretary
My eyes get red and my heart fills up with hate
I yell you dirty so and so you better let me through
He asked if Iíd repeat that once again
So I wacked him in the mouth and then I left him lyiní there
On his back, a-kickiní in the sand
I got there just in time to see my bronc come runniní out
His head and tail was held way up high
I swear he looked right straight at me and grinned and gave a horse-laugh
And me I just stood there and cried
I turned around feeling helpless and purely dumfounded
I looked, and what did I see
3 highway patrolmen and a gateman with a fat lip
And they were all a-lookiní right at me
Sittiní in this cell know Iíve done a lot of thinkiní
About that wild run I made a month ago
Iím sorry that Iím in this rotten situation
           D	          E		         A
If I could do it again I wouldnít have drove so slow
	   D	          E			 A
If I could do it again I wouldnít have drove so slow
