Sweetwater Texas
transcribed by:Aaron Komara

F            G            F          F
When I was a young man in Sweetwater Texas
F              F            G
Just one thing stayed on my mind
F               G          F       F
To ride a white horse over Durango mountain
          F                F
And leave Sweetwater Texas behind
                    G            F          F 
But I turned twenty one there in Sweetwater Texas
               F            G
Just one thing made me stay there

F           G          F        F
I wanted to leave, but I was in love
Am                F              F
The girl with the chestnut brown hair



F                G       
And there came a time, 
F                     F
when she said shed be mine
Am         F         G
And go any place any time
      F           G        F       F 
So we rode a grey dog over Durango mountain
         F          G       F
And left Sweetwater Texas behind

SOLO
F G F F    F  G  F  F    F  G  F F 

F                      G                F          F     
It was thundering and lightning when we left Nolan County
F              F                 G
The bus rolled along through the night
F               F            F
And old 36 was a magic black demon 
F                   G            F
leading towards the citys bright lights
F              G          F          F 
we pulled into Houston at ten in the morning
F                 F           G 
our hopes were as high as the sky
F                 G           F           F
but hopes turn to weeks, then years, then forever
        Am        G             F
I never knew how fast time goes by

F                  G
And cowboys sellin cars
F                    F
And country girls in bars
Am      F               G
Somehow just don’t seem fair
      F         G           F          F 
And I wanted to die cause I knew I was loosing 
F                 G              F 
The girl with the chestnut brown hair

SOLO
F  G  F  F          F G  F  F 

F               G
So many times I said
    F        F
Id rather be dead
F                        G
Than take downs to go to bed
F                   F
And ups to clear my head
                              G
But If the good lord sees his way
          F             F
To let me live one more day
Am (HOLD)              G
Im so tired of being alone
      F            G          F       F
Gonna ride a white horse over Durango mountain 
         F          G        F
And make Sweetwater Texas my home.
