Verse 1:
               G          Em7  Emadd2 Em 
When the wagons leave the city, 
         A7                C/E
For the forest and further on.
G       Em7          Emadd2 Em  
Painted wagon of the morning,
      A7                  C/G C/E
Dusty roads where they´ve gone.
          <G>       Em7         Emadd2  Em 
Sometimes travelin´ through the darkness,
        A7            C/G C/E
Met the summer comin´ home.
       <G>   Em7    Emadd2 Em
Fallen faces by the wayside,
          C/E     A7         G     (A11)   
Looked as if they might have known.


Chorus 1:
       Em         [Bm]
Oh the sun was in their eyes,
       Em          [Bm]
And the desert was dry.
     C/E     G    (A11)
In a country town, 
          [A7]     Em     Bb (C)
Where the laughter sounds.


Verse 2:
       G       Em7     Emadd2 Em 
Oh the dancing and the singing,
       A7              C/E
In the music when they played.
       G     Em7       Emadd2 Em
Oh the fires that they started,
       A7            C/G C/E
Oh the girls with no regret.
<G>       Em7        Emadd2  Em
Sometimes they found it,
<G>       Em7         Emadd2  Em
Sometimes they hocked it.
       A7                 C/G C/E
Fought each each other on the way,
        <G>   Em7    Emadd2  Em
Painted wagon of the morning.
          C/E     A7         G     (A11)   
Looked as if they might have known.


Chorus 2:
       Em         [Bm]
Oh the sun was in their eyes,
       Em          [Bm]
And the desert was dry.
     C/E     G    (A11)
In a country town, 
          [A7]     Em     Bb (C)
Where the laughter sounds.

|Em [Bm]|...
       Em          [Bm]
And the desert was dry.

In a country town,

Notes.
1. These LWT live lyrics are different from the original Bruce/Brown lyrics.
2. This performance at the 'Iridium'is post Leslie West's loss of his right leg 
from diabetes, a year earlier.  It is flavoured with staunch self-determination.
3. CEOTTK = Close Encounters Of The Third Kind (Theme).
4. This is the accompaniment only. A guitar TAB remains a separate undertaking.
