Kris Kristofferson – Caseys Last Ride chords

Am G Casey joins the hollow sound of silent people walking down
Am Em The stairway to the subway and the shadows down below
Am G Following the footsteps through the neon darkened corridors
Am Em Of silent desperation,never speaking to a soul
Verse 2:
Am C The poison air he's breathing has a dirty smell of dieing
D Em Cause it's never seen the sunshine and it's never felt the rain
Am G Casey minds the arrows and ignores the fatal echoes
Am Em Am Of the clicking of the turnstile and the rattle of his chains
Verse 3:
C G "Oh",she said "Casey it's been so long since i've seen you"
C "Here",she said "Just a kiss to make a body smile"
G "See",she said "I've put on new stockings just to please you"
C "Lord" she said "Casey can you only stay awhile"
Verse 4:
Am G Casey leaves the underground and stops inside the golden crown
Am Em For something wet to wipe away the chill that's on his bones
Am G Seeing his reflection in the lives of all the lonely men
Am Em Who reach for anything they can to keep from going home
Verse 5:
Am C Standing in the corner,Casey drinks his pint of bitter
D Em Never glancing in the mirror at the people passing by
Am G He stumbles as he's leaving and he wonders if the reason
Am Em Am Is the beer that's in his belly or the tear that's in his eye
Verse 6:
C G "Oh",she said "I suppose that you seldom think about me"
C "Now",she said "Now that you've a family of your own"
G "Still",she said "It's so blessed and good to feel your body"
C "Lord",she said "Casey it's a shame to be alone"
