[Intro]
G  Em  C  D  x2

[Verse 1]
G EmThis old porch is just a big old red and white Hereford bull
C DStandin' under a mesquite tree in Agua Dulce, Texas
G EmHe just keeps on playin' hide and seek with that hot August sun
C D GHe's sweatin' and a pantin' 'cause his work is never done
Em C DOh no, he's got them cows and that red top cane
[Verse 2]
G EmThis old porch is just a steamin' greasy plate of enchiladas
C DWith lots of cheese and onions and a guacamole salad
G EmYou can get them at the LaSalle Hotel in old downtown
C D GWith iced tea and a waitress who will smile every time
Em C DYeah, she will, I left a quarter tip on my ten dollar bill
[Verse 3]
G EmThis old porch is a palace walk-in on a main street in Texas
C DIt ain't never seen or heard the day of G and R and X's
G EmWith the '62 poster that's almost faded down
C D GAnd a screen without a picture since John came to town
Em C D GOh, no, I love them Junior Mints and them Red Hots, too, yes I do
Em C DAh, yeah, and old movie pictures
[Interlude] G Em C D [Verse 4]
G EmThis old porch is just a weathered, grey haired 70 years of Texas
C DHe's doin' all he can not to give in to the city
G EmAnd he always takes the rent late so long as I run his cattle
C DHe picks me up at dinner time, I listen to him rattle
[Verse 5]
G EmHe says, "The Brazos still runs muddy like she's run all along
C DThere ain't never been no cane to grind, the cotton's all but gone
G EmAnd, you know, this Chevrolet pickup truck, she was somethin' back in '60"
C DNow there ain't nobody listenin' to him, 'cause they all think he's crazy
[Verse 6]
G EmThis old porch is just a long time waiting and forgetting
C DAnd remembering the coming back, not crying about the leaving
G EmAnd remembering the falling down and the laughter of the curse of luck
CFrom all those sons of bitches who said we'd never get back up
[Interlude] G Em C D [Verse 7]
G EmThis old porch is just a big old red and white Hereford bull
C DStandin' under a mesquite tree out in Agua Dulce
G EmHe just keeps on playing hide and seek with that hot August sun
C D GHe's sweatin' and a pantin' 'cause his work is never done
Em C D GAh, no, I known a whole lot of old bulls in my life, and there work is never done
