(Intro)
Am Am/G Am Am/G  (back and forth until the lyrics come in)

     Am    Am/G    Am    Am/G   Am      Am/G Am  Am/G
When I was young, about 15,   I hit the open road
      F
And I headed West with nothin more than my suitcase and my soul
  Am    Am/G    Am    Am/G   Am       Am/G    Am  Am/G
I met a girl in Montreal who saved me from my sins
      F
And I thanked her with a kiss and got down to sinnin’ once again !


       C
I said Woe is me I had the right idea
               F
Just takin’ it slow and free I had the right idea
               C
You just might disagree, but I had the right idea 
            F
At least to some degree I had the right idea


Am  Am/G  x8



  Am       Am/G Am    Am/G   Am       Am/G   Am  Am/G
I hopped Sierra Madre headed South to Mexi - co
  F
I turned 21 in trouble with a girl I didn’t know
    Am       Am/G  Am   Am/G        Am       Am/G     Am     Am/G
Her name was Amo - rita     and she saved me from the streets
      F
And I thanked her more than once and dirtied up her mama’s sheets!


       C
I said Woe is me I had the right idea
               F
Just takin’ it slow and free I had the right idea
               C
You just might disagree, but I had the right idea 
            F
At least to some degree I had the right idea



C C/B Am F  x2

            Am   Am/G          Am   Am/G     Am     Am/G   Am  Am/G
Well, I was old enough to know better, but I headed to the East 
      F
And I stole poor Amorita’s heart and I made myself a feast
  Am       Am/G   Am   Am/G           Am      Am/G  Am   Am/G
I sat down to the table    and it was beatin’ on my plate

    F (and then mute)
God Damn I love a woman who tries so hard so hard keep me straight!


       C
I said Woe is me I had the right idea
               F
Just takin’ it slow and free I had the right idea
               C
You just might disagree, but I had the right idea 
            F
At least to some degree I had the right idea


       C
I said Woe is me I had the right idea
               F
Just takin’ it slow and free I had the right idea
               C
You just might disagree, but I had the right idea 
            F
At least to some degree I had the right idea


Hold F through instrumental section
