Lyle Lovett – The Front Porch Song chords

Chords
Transpose:
Eb CmThis old porch is like a big old red and white Hereford bull
AbStanding under a mesquite tree
BbOut in Agua Dulce
EbAnd he just keeps on playing hide and seek
CmWith that hot August sun
Ab Just a-sweatin' and a-pantin'
BbCause his work is never done
Eb CmAnd this old porch is like a steaming, greasy plate of enchiladas
AbWith lots of cheese and onions
BbAnd a guacamole salad
EbAnd you can get'em down at the LaSalle Hotel
CmIn old downtown
AbWith iced tea and a waitress
BbAnd she will smile every time
Eb And this old porch is the Palace walk-in
CmOn the main street of Texas
AbThat's never seen the day
BbOf G and R and Xs
EbWith that '62 poster
CmThat's almost faded down
AbAnd a screen without a picture
BbSince Giant came to town
Eb And this old porch is like a weathered, gray-haired
CmSeventy years of Texas
AbWho's doing all he can
BbNot to give in to the city
EbAnd he always takes the rent late
CmSo long as I run his cattle
AbAnd he picks me up at dinnertime
BbAnd I listen to him rattle
EbHe says the Brazos still runs muddy
CmJust like she's run all along
AbAnd there ain't never been no cane to grind
BbThe cotton's all but gone
EbAnd you know this brand new Chevrolet
CmHell it was something back in '60
AbBut now there won't nobody listen to him
BbCause they all think he's crazy
EbAnd this old porch is just a long time
CmOf waiting and forgetting
AbAnd remembering the coming back
BbAnd not crying about the leaving
EbAnd remembering the falling down
CmAnd the laughter of the curse of luck
AbFrom all of those passerby
BbWho said we'd never get back up
EbThis old porch is just a long time
CmOf waiting and forgetting
AbAnd remembering the coming back
BBAnd not crying about the leaving
EbAnd remembering the falling down
CmAnd the laughter of the curse of luck
AbFrom all of those sons-of-b***hes
Bb EbWho said we'd never get back up
