An Old Greyhound
by Hoyt Axton


[Verse]
   G                         D
An old grey-hound named the "Honey-suckle Rose"
          C                   G
She's the only woman I really love.
        G                       D
She's a four speed lady and she rolls real easy
          C                       G
there's tequila in the driver she loves. 

[Chorus]
       C                     G
And we ride all night in the pale moon light
D                    G
singing to the stars above.
        C                                G
And the smokey 'round the curve, well he ain't got the nerve
   D                     G
to mess with the woman I love.

[Verse]
            G                      D
She's got a Detroit diesel, and an air cushion ride,
        C                        G
and she smokes at the top of the hill.
             G                      D
She's got an over-sized load, and a two-lane road,
        C                  G
and she don't have time to kill.

[Chorus]
C                       G
Northbound, southbound, eastbound, west.
D                 G
Racing trucks and doin' our best.
C                  G
Four-lane freeways we love best.
    D              G
The highway is our home.

[Verse]
        G                        D   
Well, I think I better find me a good truck stop,
      C                   G
got a cup of coffee on my mind.
      G                    D
Got a travelin' band doing one night stands,
         C                            D
and they love it when the gears don't grind.

[Chorus]
        C                   G
And the way we love, is the way we live.
        D                   G
And the way we sing, is the way we give.
C                         G
Don't give a damn who you think we am,
      D            G
we're being who we are.

[Instrumental]

[Verse]
          G                         D
There's a wreck on the road, on the nine mile grade,
        C                       G
but the Honey-suckle Rose don't mind.
           G                            D 
'Cause she knows that I love her, and I never would let her go
C                       G
Flying down the highway blind.

[Chorus]
         C                  G
Just the Rose and me and my old CB
         D                    G
with the handle of the Golden Bear.
         C                 G
From the shaky city to the Tennessee line,
   D                G
10-4's gonna get us there.

[Outro]
        C                  G     
And the way we love is the way we live
        D                  G
And the way we sing is the way we give.
C                         G
Don't give a damn who you think we am,
      D            G
We're being who we are.

       C                     G
And we ride all night in the pale moon light
D                    G
singing to the stars above.
        C                                G
And the smokey 'round the curve, well he ain't got the nerve,
   D                     G
to mess with the woman I love,
      D                     G
Don't mess with the woman I love.
      D                     G
Don't mess with the woman I love.
