Adam Carroll - Errol's Song



   D                     G
Mr. Errol he lives on the banks of Lake Arthur
           D                                              A
Where your windshield gets foggy, where your back roads unwind
        D                            G
It’s a long way from Shreveport, not too far from Gueydan
         D                      A        D
And it’s close to the home that I left behind
         D                      A        D
Yah it’s close to the home that I left behind


    D                        G
Mr. Errol’s a father, he’s a farmer, he’s a hunter
       D                                        A
And he talks to the ducks and the geese and the blind
         D                          G
He works hard for the lives that he helps to make better
       D                             A         D
And he lives by the graveyard of the rusted combines


CHORUS:
    G                       D
And he held my hand when my boots got too heavy
         G                               D       A
With the mud from the rice fields coming to my behind
   D                         G           D
We set out the decoys in the dark on the levy
       D                                   A         D
And we walked through the graveyard of the rusted combines


        D                          G
There’s coffee and biscuits on the stove in the kitchen
          D                                            A
There’s a crack in the ceiling and a screened in front door
           D                           G
And as the fog starts to settle on the banks of Lake Arthur
      D                                A            G
I can still taste the whiskey from the night just before
         D                            A            G
It’s the Crown Royal whiskey from the night just before


         G                 D
And it’s hard to get up at five in the morning
         G                               D         A
Put your guns, put your shells, put your wine in a sack
        D                        G
We look like some militia in our boots and our camo
       D                          A            G
With a bird dog named Milo, he’s asleep in the back


CHORUS:
G                       D
He held my hand when my boots got too heavy
         G                               D       A
With the mud from the rice fields coming to my behind
   D                         G           D
We set out the decoys in the dark on the levy
       D                                   A         D
And we walked through the graveyard of the rusted combines


    D                    G
The combine’s a monster, combine’s a saviour
        D                                       A
Looking down at the blades I can see heaven and hell
     D                            G
Cold steel cut the rice crops for acres and acres
     D                      A        D
Bill how many barrels?  Man I cannot tell
     D                     A        D
Bill how many dryers?  Man I cannot tell

         D                           G


        D                                  A
There’s water as far as your good eyes can see
       D                       G
At the Lake Arthur bar all the old men get rowdy
         D                           A          D
They got bottles of whiskey that are older than me


CHORUS:
G                       D
He held my hand when my boots got too heavy
         G                               D       A
With the mud from the rice fields coming to my behind
   D                         G           D
We set out the decoys in the dark on the levy
       D                                   A         D
And we walked through the graveyard of the rusted combines


D                      G
Sometimes I dream of a girl in a pickup
         D                                A
With her window rolled down and her radio on
        D                          G
And you look at the cypress on the Highway 190
        D                     A          D
And you give her away and you sing Jole Blon
        D                     A          D
And you give her away and you sing Jole Blon


        D                        G
And Mr. Errol’s a good friend he never a stranger
       D                                        A
When I come back it seems like I’ve always been here
          D                        G
There’s a sign in his kitchen it’s written in French
        D                          A          D
“If you run out of Schlitz, you’ve run out of beer”


CHORUS:
G                       D
He held my hand when my boots got too heavy
         G                               D       A
With the mud from the rice fields coming to my behind
   D                         G           D
We set out the decoys in the dark on the levy
       D                                   A         D
And we walked through the graveyard of the rusted combines
