[Intro]
E D A E

[Verse]
  B            A    G#m    A         E
I met you on a midway at a fair last year
        B                A G#m A                  E
And you stood out like a ruby    in a black man's ear
         D              A       E                              D
You were playing on the horses, you were playing on the guitar strings
         A                           E
You were playing like a devil wearing wings

[Chorus]
        D
Wearing wings
                            A   E
You looked so grand wearing wings
       D                                  E
Do you tape them to your shoulders just to sing?
        D
Can you fly?
                         A   E
I heard you can! Can you fly?
        D                                 E
Like an eagle doin' your hunting from the sky

[Interlude]
D A E

[Verse]
  B                  A    G#m A          E
I followed with the sideshows  to another town
      B                A  G#m         A      E
And I found you in a trailer   on the camping grounds
         D              A                E              D
You were betting on some lover, you were shaking up the dice
      A                                 E
And I thought I saw you cheating once or twice

[Chorus]
        D
Once or twice
                         A    E
I heard your bid once or twice
         D                                 E
Were you wondering was the gamble worth the price
        D
Pack it in
                         A   E
I heard you did! Pack it in
       D                                 E
Was it hard to fold a hand you knew could win

[Interlude]
D A E

[Verse]
   B                  A  G#m  A                       E
So lately you've been hiding,  it was somewhere in the news
    B                  A G#m      A                     E
And I'm still at these races with my ticket stubs and my blues
      D                  A                E                  D
And a voice calls out the numbers, and it sometimes mentions mine
      A                              E
And I feel like I've been working overtime

[Chorus]
    D
Overtime
                      A  E
I've lost my fire overtime
       D                                 E
Always playin' one more hand for one more dime
        D            
Slowin' down I'm gettin' tired!
        A  E
Slowin' down
      D                              E
And I envy you the valley that you've found
           D
'Cause I'm midway down the midway
        E     D     A    E   D A E
Slowin' down, down, down, down
