First tab here!!! Love this song. Cannot find one single page with its chords, so 
I sat down and tried to figure it out. 
Sounds pretty close to me. It's hard to describe the strumming, but really easy to 
figure out from the song. 
There are some hammers peppered in the chords. 


Artist: Lyle Lovett
Song: Flyswatter/Ice Water Blues
Album: Joshua Judges Ruth

C9                       G
Honey put down that flyswatter
C9                    G
And pour me some ice water
C9                       G
And would you bring me my hammer
C9                         D
And could you find me some nails

C9               G
For soon I'll be going
C9               G
To work for this living
C9                   G
And with you here to guide me
C9            G
Then I cannot fail

C9 G

C9             G
The morning it stumbles
C9                   G
Right in through the window
C9                  G
And this getting up early
C9       D
Gets old anyway

C9                      G 
And if you listen close dear
C9                  G
The crying that you hear
C9               G
Is the nighttime lamenting
C9               G
The start of the day

C9 G

C9                   G
And it's hotter than concrete
C9         G
In July in Houston
C9            G
And it'll get worse here
C9              D
Before it turns nice

C9                    G
But old Tink's in the backyard
C9                        G  
And I swear that boy's so smart
C9                  G
He's got everything ready
C9              G
So we'll be all right

C9 G

C9                     G
So honey put down that flyswatter
C9                   G
And pour me some ice water
C9                      G
And though I'll soon be going
C9                  D
Well I haven't gone yet
C9                 G
So come stand here beside me
C9               G  
And hold my hand gently
C9                 G   
And tell me do you remember
C9                G
The first time we met

C9 G
