G            C                    A      Cadd9
Whiskey on a Southbound bound for Angeltown
G                D               C     G
Let those diesel engines pull me down
G                     C             A                         
 Cadd9
Broke down man at the station house cryin' from his head to his hands
G                D               G
Lord it makes me wonder what she said

Am                  F                 G
She said I have the strangest kind of innocence
Am                    F                 D
But I'm gonna ask her exactly what that means
Am                 F               G
She said her mother likes me and I think I trust them both
G                           D                       G
And she treats me good enough for me to write this song

  Cadd9
Well my girl got drunk and she's talkin' to some boys from high school
G                           D                  C       G
She knows how to swim but I think she wants to drown
G                    C                   A                Cadd9
Ticketman said she's tryin' to make me a jealous hearted man
G                      D              G
Watchin' the telephone wires I nod my head
