A He was born on the twelfth of March and the G E winds did blow. A B Since then ill winds still follow me everywhere E I go. D A He's been broke in every state and every major town. A E A And every time I trust a gal she lets me down. #2. A G E He sized up a little bank in Logan's Bay. A Then I got to thinkin' and I lost my nerve and B E threw my gun away. D They caught him down by the railroad track and A run him out of town. A E A And every time I trust a gal she lets me down. BRIDGE: D A Every joy I've known has turned to pain. D E If I pick me up they'll come along and knock me down again. #3. A G E He's gambled away every cent he ever made. A B If I fill my inside straight somebody else is E holdin' spades. D A He's been unfit and unqualified for every job he's found. A E A And every time I trust a gal she lets me down. INTERLUDE: A G E..A G A BRIDGE: D A Every love I've known has passed me by. D I'll never learn cause I guess I've been passed E by a thousand times. #4. A G E So, he turns to the open road and shrugs his mind. A B With an empty feelin' and a lonely heart without E a single dime. D A And we know that's how it'll always be til they put him in the ground. A E A Yeah, and every time I trust a gal she lets me down. OUTRO: A E A (A G A) Every time I trust a gal she lets me down.. A seventies smash from Kraziekhat.
