VERSE 1: 
(-piano +lead guitar after each line)
         D                                    G
Well you pass around the pipe and you all get high.
A                          D
Never even stop and wonder why.
D                            G      G   D/F#
Maybe it's because you wanna die.
Em                                     A
Maybe it's just the way things have to be.

    D                                    G
You stay up late and drink too damn much whiskey.
    A                                  D
You know that sort of thing is kind of risky.
D                                        G      G   D/F#
Maybe it's just because you like to feel frisky.
Em                A                      D
Maybe it's just because you like to feel free.


CHORUS 1: 
(-piano)
G                 A           D
Saddle Tramp, how many people watch you ridin' by,
       G                  A                 D
Like a thunder cloud that floats across the Arizona sky,
    G                 A            D            G     G   D/F#
And wonder if they're looking at a mighty happy man,
          Em                 A
Or just a lonely breeze that drifts across the
G       D/F#  E  D
Endless desert sand.

(+lead guitar)
|D   A      |C   G      |


VERSE 2: 
(+piano)
          D                        G
Well it's gettin' kinda cold in Readosa.
A                          D
 Abilene ain't gettin' any closer.
D                                G      G   D\F#
One more drink, one more hand of poker.
          Em                                 A
Because a fool and his money's gonna have to part.


D                                  G
You're too proud to ever show your sorrow.
A                                    D
You don't steal and you won't beg or borrow.
    D                                   G      G   D/F#
You may be here today but you're gone tomorrow.
               Em              A                  D
There ain't no strings on your boot heels or your heart.


CHORUS 2:
G                 A           D
Saddle Tramp, how many people watch you ride away,
G              A                D
Wonder why you never promise to come back some day.
      G                 A               D              G    G   D/F#
Maybe thinking you were holding all the pieces in your hand,
            Em                    A
Or are they slippin' through your fingers like the
G       D/F#  E  D
Endless desert sand.
