Red Ball Texas Flyer

As heard from the 2005 CD Anthology set The Works: 1970-2000
Lyrics are not completely accurate because of partial 
unintelligibility in the vocals. 
In those spots, approximations were put in their place.

[E]
Well I'm drivin' to New Orleans on a half a tank of gas
     [B]
Got a Jesus on the dashboard got a third wife on my ass
          [E]                            [A]
They don't think I'm gonna make it, but I swear I think I can
       [E]                        [B]            [E]
In that Red Ball Texas Flyer I'm a Red Ball Texas Man

[E]
Well I left fifteen this mornin' just about the break of day
       [B]
Sixteen minutes and a bowl of chili, I'm bound to find my way
    [E]                                 [A]
If I got to actin' gorgeous then they'll know just who I am
       [E]                        [B]            [E]
In that Red Ball Texas Flyer I'm a Red Ball Texas Man

Fiddle Solo:
[A] [E] [F#m] [B] (Repeat) [E]

[E]
Well in bunky Louisiana there's a redhead made the stand
      [B]
With a pistol full of nickels and a razor in her hand
         [E]                        [A]
She said "I'm gonna cut you boy from appetite to thirst"
       [E]                   [B]                    [E]
I said "Hold on pretty pinto, better cut the mustard first"

[E]       
Well I rode her in the parkin' lot I rode her in the green
 [B]
I rode her till the sheriff came and then it got obscene
     [E]                                   [A]
Oh we jumped the bail to midnight she said "Honey you like a grand"
       [E]                        [B]            [E]
In that Red Ball Texas Flyer I'm a Red Ball Texas Man

Fiddle Solo:
[A] [E] [F#m] [B] (Repeat) [E]

[E]
Oh we got down to New Orleans down beside the Hotel Reef
       [B]
Were we found out we were different than we ever thought we'd be
      [E]                              [A]
At the court of the Seven Sisters I was prowlin' the settin' sun
      [E]                             [B]          [E]
Opened up the Red Ball Flyer and moved in with everyone

Fiddle Solo:
[A] [E] [F#m] [B] (Repeat 3X)
