Capo II

     C                            G
When I was just a kid out in the midwest
    Am            Am7/G             F
I grew my hair as long as it could go
 C                                   G
Farm boys got down in the dirt and wrestled
Am              Am7/G      F
Top soil blew as far as Ohio
(F)                           C
Bought our records up at the hardware
                  G      [ch]G/G#[/ch]     Am    Am7/G
Spent every last dime on rock and roll

            F            G                  C    C/B  C/A C/E
But on the radio it was Merle and Hank and Johnny
     F             G               C       Csus4  G G/C
Buck Owens, Jimmy Rogers and George Jones

Well I grew up and I drifted from the midwest
Seen London, New York and Montreal
Music that I listened to had drum machines
We rocked as they kicked down the Berlin Wall
But my younger years sometimes felt like someone else's
Every now and then I hear it wafting in low

On the radio is Merle and Hank and Johnny
Buck Owens, Jimmy Rogers and George Jones

        F            C             
Silver wings I'm so lonesome I could cry
  G              [ch]G/G#[/ch]           Am  Am7/G
Stuck in Folsom Prison without you
 F                          C  C/A
Tiger by the tail, 'T' for Texas
 Dm                             G    G/E(3x2003)  G/F (xx3003)
Blue must be the color of the blues



Now I stay in the sunny skies of California
Don't know where the days or time have flown
When I look in to the mirror don't know where that kid has gone
Even now I've got a young one of my own
Now I wonder what's the music she'll hold inside her heart
Cartoon kids they all sing rock and roll

But I'll make sure she hears Merle and Hank and Johnny
Buck Owens, Jimmy Rogers and George Jones

Silver wings I'm so lonesome I could cry
Stuck in Folsom Prison without you
Tiger by the tail, 'T' for Texas
Blue must be the color of the blues

Blue must be the color of the blues
