Tom Russell - Throwin' Horseshoes At The Moon


CAPO: 3rd Fret



[Intro]
G  G/F#  F7  E7

[Verse 1]
   G            G/F#              F7                E7
My father was a gambler, he threw horseshoes at the moon
   C     G                   D/F#            C
He won a million dollars and lost a million, too
                                 G               C
They repossessed the house, they towed that Cadillac
   Am             Em                    F               D/F#
My daddy, he just smiled and said, "One day I'll win it back"


[Verse 2]
   G                 G/F#           F7            E7
My daddy bought that Cadillac off a Detroit motor line
        C                    G           D/F#             C
Then he drove it through his hometown to prove he hit his prime
                                G                 C
With hundred dollars bills in a Saint Chris money clip
    Am                Em                F               D/F#
And four kids staring proudly from that big old sinking ship
                           Em
Throwin' horseshoes at the moon


[Chorus]
           C            G
Boys, it's mighty risky odds
    C                 G                D/F#                  Em
Sometimes ya hook the milky way or the outstretched hands of god
    C                            G              C
But mostly they just fall into a dark and dusty hole
        Am               Em              F               D/F#
And the sound of falling horse shoes, it pulls upon your soul
                           Em
Throwin' horseshoes at the moon


[Instrumental]
C  G  C  G  D  Em    C    Bm 
G  C    Am  E  F  D/F#


[Verse 3]
   G           G/F#            F7            E7
My daddy was a gambler, but he had an honest heart
   C            G              D/F#              C
He never did complain when the whole thing fell apart 
                                         G                 C
He just swam that sea of alcohol till he reached the other side
    Am           Em             F               D/F#
How can you be a loser when you never lose your pride?
                           Em
Throwin' horseshoes at the moon


Chorus
           C            G
Boys, it's mighty risky odds
    C                 G                D/F#                  Em
Sometimes ya hook the milky way or the outstretched hands of god
    C                            G              C
But mostly they just fall into a dark and dusty hole
        Am               Em              F               D/F#
And the sound of falling horse shoes, it pulls upon your soul
                           Em    c
Throwin' horseshoes at the moon
         D                 G
Throwin' horseshoes at the moon
