Desperados Waitin' For a Train Guy Clark 
            
1 2 1 2 3 4 
                                  
Bm 2 3 4 Bm 2 3 4 G 2 3 4 G 2 3 4 
                                  
Bm 2 3 4 Bm 2 3 4 G 2 3 4 G 2 3 4 
D            A         D              
I played the Red River Valley C 2 G 2 
     A                      Bm  
He'd sit in the kitchen and cry 
        G                                D      Bm 
Run his fingers through seventy years of livin' ~  
   E                                              A     
"I wonder, Lord, has every well I've drilled gone dry?" 
A                            D       
We were friends, me and this old man 
     Bm                       G           
Like desperados waitin' for a train 2 3 4 
     Bm                       G                   
Like desperados waitin' for a train 2 3 4 A 2 3 4 
D                   A          D                 
He was a drifter, a driller of oil wells C 2 G 2 
  A                           Bm          
A teacher, a schoolman of the world 2 3 4 
       G                             D        Bm 
Let me drive his car when he was too drunk to ~  
     E                              A     
He'd wink and give me money for the girls 
A                                        D     
And our lives were like some old Western movie 
     Bm                       G           
Like desperados waitin' for a train 2 3 4 
     Bm                       G                   
Like desperados waitin' for a train 2 3 4 A 2 3 4 
         D                 A                 D                
From the time that I could walk he'd take me with him C 2 G 2 
     A                             Bm       
To a bar called the Green Frog Caf-e  2 3 4 
      G                          D        Bm 
Where old men with beer guts and dominoes ~  
      E                                A      
Would lie about their lives while they played 
A                                     D          
And I was just a kid, they all called "Sidekick" 
     Bm                       G           
Like desperados waitin' for a train 2 3 4 
     Bm                       G                   
Like desperados waitin' for a train 2 3 4 A 2 3 4 
      D                A                   D              
Well, one day I looked up and he's pushin' eighty C 2 G 2 
A                                 Bm         
Brown tobacco stains all down his chin 2 3 4 
   G                        D       Bm 
To me he was a hero of this country ~  
   E                                     A   
So why's he all dressed up like them old men 
A                                       D         
Just drinkin' beer and playin' Moon and Forty-two 
     Bm                       G           
Like desperados waitin' for a train 2 3 4 
     Bm                       G                   
Like desperados waitin' for a train 2 3 4 A 2 3 4 
    D             A              D               
The day before he died I went to see him C 2 G 2 
A                             Bm         
I was grown and he was almost gone 2 3 4 
       G                                   D       Bm 
But we closed our eyes and dreamed us up a kitchen ~  
    E                              A    
And sang another verse to that old song 
         A                                   D      
(spoken) Come on, Jack, that son-of-a-gun is comin' 
     Bm                       G           
Like desperados waitin' for a train 2 3 4 
     Bm                       G           
Like desperados waitin' for a train 2 3 4 
     Bm                       G           
Like desperados waitin' for a train 2 3 4 
     Bm                       G                  
Like desperados waitin' for a train 2 3 4 Bm end

The 'E's should be Em I think - It sounds like it fits much better!
