John Prine Sleepy Eyed Boy chords
Highlighted Show chord diagrams
D Where are the boot straps, To lift myself up? G Where is the well D Where I once filled my cup? G Where does this sorrow D All turn into joy? A D And where oh where is the sleepy eyed boy? Where is my true love When the wind starts to moan? Is she out in the wild, Is she there all alone? Have I cast her aside, Like an unwanted toy? Tell me where oh where is the sleepy eyed boy? He’s goin’ down the backroads In a cold pourin’ rain He’s a waitin’ for a postcard In the south coast of Spain Postmarked from a sweetheart Back in ol’ Illinois Sayin’ where oh where is my sleepy eyed boy? That’s pretty much it. The rest of the song follows that chord progression with segments picking in between. Couldn’t find these chords anywhere so I thought I might as well a swing at it.
