======================================================================
INTRO
F | Bb | F | Dm
F | Bb | F | Dm

VERSE
F                      Bb/F F
 I've been out on this road some
                             Am7                Dm
Can't help feeling I've been showing my friends around
             Bb                   F/A
I've seen it growing from next to nothing
       Gm7   F/A            C7
Into a giant eating up your town

VERSE
F                                Bb/F F
Called up the tea leaves and the ta - rots
                         Am7                     Dm
Asked the gypsy what she sees in the palm of our hands
          Bb           F/A
She saw a mountain and wild deer running
  Gm7                  F/A    C7
A crazy kid becoming a better man

BRIDGE
       Gm7
But we stuck around for the fireworks
        Bb C7
Waiting to explode
           A7             Dm
Shaped our futures, you a tumbleweed
    Bb                   C
And me on a yellow brick road
             Gm7
Pleasing the people some of the time
           Bb     C7
For better or for worse
         A7                  Dm
An urban soul in a fine silk suit
                Bb        G/B      C7
And a heart out west in a Wrangler shirt

CHORUS
                 F                      Dm
And you can't go back and if you try it fails
           Bb                  F/C 
Looking up ahead I see a rusty nail
                    F                    Dm
A sign hanging from it saying "Truth for sale"
                   Bb
And that's what we did
   G/B              F/C
No lies at all just one more tale
          C       A7/C#   Dm
About the Captain and the Kid

VERSE
F                     Bb/F     F
We've been missing at times in action
                      C                    Dm
Can't imagine what he said he might do for you
          Bb                 F/A
The devil got to come to the party sometimes
       Gm7          F/A         C7
But he never got to wear our shoes
         F           Bb/F       F
Oh we've conjured up what we created
                         C                       Dm
Way back then when I was standing up in six-inch heels
           Bb         F/A       
Now you're riding off into the sunset
    Gm7                F/A              C7
And I'm still spinning like a Catherine wheel

BRIDGE
       Gm7                  
But we stuck around for the battle
        Bb    C7
Waiting for a plan
            A7                    Dm
To turn you into the Brown Dirt Cowboy
    Bb               C7
And me into a rocket man
               Gm7                
It pleases the people some of the time
        Bb       C7
Digging into our roots
            A7                Dm
But I got a brand new pair of shoes
                Bb       G/B        C7
And you're on a horse in old cowboy boots

CHORUS
                 F                      Dm
And you can't go back and if you try it fails
           Bb                  F/C 
Looking up ahead I see a rusty nail
                    F                    Dm
A sign hanging from it saying "Truth for sale"
                   Bb
And that's what we did
   G/B              F/C
No lies at all just one more tale
          C       A7/C#   Dm
