Here are the correct chords to "Skinny Legs" by Lyle Lovett. To play along
with the recording, use a Capo on the FIRST fret and play the normal chord
fingering as noted (with apologies to Steve Johnson)


Skinny Legs
Lyle Lovett (c) 1994
from the album "I Love Everybody"

D                 G       D
See that boy with that guitar
        G        D         A             D
He's got skinny legs like I always wanted
                   G      D
A girlfriend in his car 'cause he's got
G         D       A          D
Skinny legs like I always wanted
G                         D
Now sister look at me again
            G                  A           D
Well, you'd love me if I was as skinny as him


2. And see that boy with that guitar
He's got a shirt and tie like I always wanted
A girlfriend in his car 'cause he's got
A shirt and tie like I always wanted
Now sister look at me again
Well, you'd love me if I was a dresser like him

3. And see that boy with that guitar
He's got a blue Toyota like I always wanted
A Japanese girl in his car 'cause he's got
A blue Toyota like I always wanted
Now sister look at me again
Well, you'd love me if I was a driver like him

4. And see that boy with that guitar
He's got a baby face like I always wanted
A girlfriend in his car 'cause he's got
A baby face like I always wanted
Now sister look at me again
Well, you'd love me if I was a looker like him

5. And see that boy with that guitar
He's got a little round ... like I always wanted
A girlfriend in his car 'cause he's got
A little round ... like I always wanted
Now sister look at me again
Well, you'd love me if I had a ... like him
You'd love me if that were my rear end

(bridge)
D             G           D
But legs they come and faces go
G          A      D
Just like old Toyotas
     D                         G              D
The Jap girl dumped my ass and stole my clothes
     G         D      A         D
She took my car and left   me singing

See that boy with that guitar
He's got skinny legs like I always wanted
A girlfriend in his car 'cause he's got
Skinny legs like I always wanted
Skinny legs like I always wanted
