Roger Alan Wade - Deguello Motel


   (CHORUS)

   F                       C
   I live in a room with a green radio,
   G                       C
   Curled in the womb of a twenty-nine year low
   F                       C                Am
   Four walls from heaven, and one sin from hell
      C                 G        C
   In room seventeen at Deguello Motel


Am                              Em
The desk clerk's a jerk, an old carnival fellow,
F                                C
I ask where're you from, he said Lake Isabella
F                                      C
I told him I'd been there, but I never had
                            G            C
He looked at the clock, and I signed the pad.


Am                               Em
He said, "No dogs allowed," so I bought me a fish
F                       C
He lives by my bed in a souvenir dish
F                           C
Swims 'round in circles and eats once a day
                           G      C
And looks a lot like my ex-wife's fiance.


   (CHORUS)

   F                       C
   I live in a room with a green radio,
   G                       C
   Curled in the womb of a twenty-nine year low
   F                       C                Am
   Four walls from heaven, and one sin from hell
      C                 G        C
   In room seventeen at Deguello Motel


Am                       Em
And there's a wasteland across the highway
F                                    C
Where the lot lizards** roam and the big diesels stay
F                              C
The cops ask me questions, and I tell them jokes
                               G           C
And that fat one, he's always a-bummin' my smokes


Am                             Em
And the swimming pool water is Chuck Berry green
F                                 C
And the water pipes rattle like a pinball machine
F                                C
The walls are blood-red, and the sheets are Velveeta
                                       G       C
And that girl in 112 (one-twelve), she goes by Juanita

Am                               Em
Juanita's a dancer, she does the naked ballet
F                       C
I keep an eye on things while she's away
F                             C
She spends all her money, and half of mine, too
                                 G         C
Tryin' to get high enough to get naked for you


   (CHORUS)

         F                     C
   And I live in a room with a green radio,
   G                       C
   Curled in the womb of a twenty-nine year low
   F                       C                Am
   Four walls from heaven, and one sin from hell
      C                 G        C
   In room seventeen at Deguello Motel


Am                                Em
There's an old Mexican dirge this place is named after
F                            C
And I heard it once in a box office disaster
F                               C
The Duke told his boys, said it means leave or die
                                                G                  
I don't know much Spanish, but John Wayne don't lie


   (CHORUS)

         F                     C
   And I live in a room with a green radio,
   G                       C
   Curled in the womb of a twenty-nine year low
   F                       C                Am
   Four walls from heaven, and one sin from hell
      C                 G        C
   In room seventeen at Deguello Motel


F                             C         Am
I'm singin' like a pearl in a bottle of Prell
   C                 G        C
In room seventeen at Deguello Motel
