Thelma - Reckless Kelly

Intro: C
     C                      Dm
I'm down to one key in my pocket,
     C            G        C
the bus station locker downtown,
     G
the soles of my shoes ,
        C          Am
are as thin as my wallet,
  Dm                           G
i been sleeping close to the ground

     C                   Dm
but buried up here in my memory,
     C            G           C
is a head full of living room hits,
  G                       C          Am
i wrote about thelma when we were an item,
   Dm            G            C
and i was worth more than two bits,

        F                     C
so i'll sing you a song about thelma,
    G                    C
if you have a quarter to spare,
    G                    C         Am
if you had the time or a bottle of wine,
     Dm                  G
that you'd be willing to share,
    F                     C
and later i'll show you a picture,
   G                         C
of thelma when she's in her prime,
   G                  C            Am
if you want to see mr i've got the key,
        Dm          G           C
and the bus station locker take dimes,

   C                   Dm
i had me a band in the 60's,
   C            G       C
we played east texas a lot
 G                   C          Am
thelma could sing so we moved nashville,
    Dm               G
and in '68, she got hot,
    C                  Dm
a high flyin' record producer, 
       C         G            C
told thelma he'd make her a star,
     G                          C         Am
he wined her and dined her and stole her away
    Dm           G         C
and left me with my old guitar,

    C                    Dm 
she died last year on my birthday,
     C       G         C
the day that i turned 65,
G                     C           Am
most have forgotten including her fans,
        Dm                  G
but i'm keeping her memory alive,
      C                     Dm
cuz i've got this key in my pocket,
      C         G  C
i've had since '72,
      G                         C          Am
i've built her a shrine in that locker downtown, 
       Dm            G               C
and i think she'd be pleased if she knew

        F                      C
so i'll sing you a song about thelma,
    G                     C
if you have a quarter to spare,
   G                      C          Am
if you have the time or a bottle of wine,
     Dm                  G
and you'd be willing to share,
 F                    C
later i'll show you a picture,
    G                       C
of thelma when she's in her prime,
    G                C           Am
if you wanna see mr i've got the key,
        Dm          G             C
and the bus station locker takes dimes

     G              C            Am
if you wanna see mr i've got the key
        Dm           G           C
and the bus station locker takes dimes
