Chris Ledoux – The Passenger chords

The Passenger
By Chris LeDoux

G EmIt was dark and I was drivin' down a loney Texas road
C D EmThe night was hot and sleep pulled at my eyes
G EmI was thinkin' bout the wild times and the women that I'd had
C D EmThe deceitful things I'd done and those lies
G DStandin' in the shadows by the side of the road
C EmWas a figure of a withered old man
G DHe wore a black bandanna a rolled brim Stetson hat
C EmWith a two inch scarlet hat band
G EmHe held his wrinkled hand up as a sign to shut her down
C D EmSo I pulled over and stopped by his side
G EmHe opened up the door slid in and sat down
C D EmHe said my ain't it hot tonight
G DI studied this old man and it seemed mighty strange
C EmFor him to be out here all alone
G DThen he started talkin' and he told me many things
C EmOf times like both of us had known
G EmHe told me of the wild life and the women that he'd had
C D EmHow none of them had ever meant a thing
G EmAnd he told me of a black night much the same as this
C D EmOf the strange and awesome things he'd seen
G DA man beside the road had raised his hand
C Emand flagged him down so he stopped and let him in
G DThat stranger told him stories like I am hearing now
C EmBout the wild times and all the sin
G EmThen the car got cold and clammy and this old man looked at me
C D EmHe said boy I've come here for you
G EmYour days of wicked sinnin' have come to an end
C D Emand as mortal on this earth boy you are through
G DThen his eyes got red and fiery as he took his Stetson off
C EmTo reveal his evil horns shiny and black
G DMy God the fear came o'er me and my senses were all lost
C EmI fought with him until we finally crashed
G EmNext day the car was found at the bottom of a draw
C D EmThe young cowboy was found beside the wreck
GHis car had been consumed by fire
Embut the cowboy had no marks
C D EmExcept the smokin' pitch fork brand upon his neck
That's it! Have fun!
