WEST TEXAS HIGHWAY
By: Michael Martin Murphy and Boomer Castleman
Recorded by: Lyle Lovett Album: Step Inside this House

            F7
Now I was a`driving down

A West Texas highway
  Bb7
I seen a hitchhiker
    E7
His thumb was pointin my way
   F7
He didn't look suspicious
   D                   G7 C7
He didn't look any too clean
      F7
So I, I put on my brakes

And I opened up the door
        Bb7
I could tell he was a bum
       E7
By the boots he wore
            F7            D
He said I'm going down to Haskell
G7                  C7  F7  Bb7 F7 C7
Got a woman back in Abilene.
           F7
He told me son East Texas

Is where I come from
  Bb7
I been ridin' that Jacksonville Rodeo
    E7
And I got humdrum
    F7
I'm travelling around
  D                       G7 C7
A whole lot of Texas I've seen

        F7
Yes and I'm, I'm mighty glad

You was pushin' down my way
        Bb7
In your fancy clothes
         E7
And this shiny Chevrolet
F7                     D
Said I'm going down to Haskell
G7                  C7  F7  Bb7 C7
Got a woman back in Abilene.

--- Dobro / Piano leads

         F7
You know he was grinning like a possum

And a mighty happy rascal
   Bb7
He waved good-bye
       E7
When I let him out in Haskell
    F7
And that's about the last
        D
Of that road tramp
               G7 C7
That I've ever seen
                  F7
But you know that I'm still wishing

To this very day
     Bb7
That he had my clothes
         E7
And this shiny Chevrolet
           F7          D
And it was me going to Haskell
       G7            C7 F7 Bb7 F7
With a woman down in Abilene.

F7
But you know that I'm still wishing

To this very day
     Bb7
That he had my clothes
         E7
And this shiny Chevrolet
           F7          D
And it was me going to Haskell
       G7            C7 F7 Bb7 F7/E7-F7 (slide up)
With a woman down in Abilene.
