F7      F#o      F#7     F7

[Verse 1]
F7 Fo F7Down over the window
Bb Eb7 BbCome the dazzling sunlit rays
F7 Fo F7Through the back alleys, through the blinds,
Bb Ebm BbAnother one of them endless days
[Verse 2]
F7 Fo F7Honey bees are buzzing
Bb Eb7 BbLeaves begin to stir
F7 Fo F7I'm in love with my second cousin
Bb Ebm Bb A7I tell myself I could be happy forever with her.
[Bridge 1]
Dm A7I keep listening for footsteps,
Dm Bb A7But I ain't ever hearing any
Dm A7From the boat, I fish for bullheads
Dm C/E F FoI catch a lot, sometimes too many
[Verse 3]
F7 Fo F7A summer breeze is blowin',
Bb Eb7 BbA squall is setting in.
F7 Fo F7Sometimes it's just plain stupid
Bb Ebm BbTo get into any kind of wind.
[Interlude 1] F7 F#o F#7 F7 [Verse 4]
F7 Fo F7Well, the old men 'round here sometimes they get on
Bb Eb7 Bbbad terms with the younger men,
F7 Fo F7Old, young - age don't carry weight
Bb Ebm BbIt doesn't matter in the end
[Verse 5]
F7 Fo F7One of the bosses' hangers-on sometimes comes to call
Bb Eb7 BbAt times you least expect,
F7 Fo F7Tryin' to bully you, strong-arm you, inspire you with fear.
Bb Ebm Bb A7It has the opposite effect
[Bridge 2]
Dm A7There's a new grove of trees on the outskirts of town
Dm Bb A7The old one - long gone.
Dm A7Timber, two foot six across,
Dm C/E F FoBurns with the bark still on.
[Verse 6]
F7 Fo F7They say times are hard,
Bb Eb7 BbIf you don't believe it you can follow your nose.
F7 Fo F7It don't bother me, times are hard everywhere,
Bb Ebm BbWe will just have to see how it goes.
[Interlude 2] F7 F#o F#7 F7 [Verse 7]
F7 Fo F7My old man he's like some feudal lord,
Bb Eb7 BbGot more lives than a cat.
F7 Fo F7I've never seen him quarrel with my mother even once.
Bb Ebm BbThings come alive or they fall flat.
[Verse 8]
F7 Fo F7You can smell the pine wood burnin'
Bb Eb7 BbYou can hear the school-bell ring.
F7 Fo F7Got to get up near the teacher, if you can
Bb Ebm Bb A7If you wanna learn anything.
[Bridge 3]
Dm A7Romeo, he said to Juliet, "You got a poor complexion
Dm Bb A7It don't give you an appearance of a youthful touch."
Dm A7Juliet said back to Romeo, "Why don't you just shove off
Dm C/E F FoIf it bothers you so much."
[Verse 9]
F7 Fo F7They all got out of here any way they could -
Bb Eb7 BbCold rain can give you the shivers.
F7 Fo F7They went down the Ohio, the Cumberland, the Tennessee,
Bb Ebm BbAll the rest of them rebel rivers.
[Interlude 3] F7 F#o F#7 F7 [[Verse 10]
F7 Fo F7If you ever try to interfere with me, or cross my path again,
Bb Eb7 BbYou do so at the peril of your own life.
F7 Fo F7I'm not quite as cool or forgiving as I sound,
Bb Ebm BbI've seen enough heartache and strife.
[Verse 11]
F7 Fo F7My grandfather was a duck trapper
Bb Eb7 BbHe could do it with just dragnets and ropes
F7 Fo F7My grandmother could sew new dresses out of old cloth,
Bb Ebm Bb A7I don't know if they had any dreams or hopes.
[Bridge 4]
Dm A7I had 'em once though I suppose
DmTo go along with all the ring dancing,
Bb A7Christmas Carols on all the Christmas Eves
Dm A7I left all my dreams and hopes
Dm C/E F FoBuried under tobacco leaves
[Verse 12]
F7 Fo F7Not always easy kicking someone out,
Bb Eb7 BbGot to wait awhile, it can be an unpleasant task.
F7 Fo F7Sometimes somebody wants you to give something up
Bb Ebm BbAnd, tears or not, it's too much to ask.
[Outro] F7 F#o F#7 F7 Bb6
