Capo 4
(Chords relative to capo)


Am                                     Dm
Sometimes I don't know where this dirty road is taking me
    Am                                Em
Sometimes I don't even know the reason why
  Am
I guess I'll keep a'gambling
        Dm
Lots of booze and lots of rambling
     Am                Em               Am
It's easier than just a-waitin' around to die


Am                          Dm
One-time friends I had a ma, I even had a pa
    Am                                 Em
He beat her with a belt once cause she cried
  Am
She told him to take care of me
        Dm
She headed down to Tennessee
      Am               Em                 Am
It's easier than just a-waitin' 'round to die


Am                                     Dm
I came of age and found a girl in a Tuscaloosa bar
    Am                                Em
She cleaned me out and hit it on the sly
  Am
I tried to kill the pain
        Dm
I bought some wine and hopped a train
     Am                Em               Am
Seemed easier than just a-waitin' 'round to die


Am                                     Dm
A friend said he knew where some easy money was
    Am                                Em
We robbed a man and brother did we fly
  Am
The posse caught up with me
        Dm
Drug me back to Muskogee
     Am                Em               Am
It's two long years, just a-waitin' 'round to die


Am                                     Dm
Now I'm out of prison, I got me a friend at last
    Am                                Em
He don't steal or cheat or drink or lie
  Am
His name's codeine
        Dm
He's the nicest thing I've seen
     Am                Em               Am
Together we're gonna wait around and die
