COWBOY JUNKIES LAMENT by Townes Van Zandt
======================
I did not score this tab! I saved from a web site a long time ago.


[Intro:]  E  F#m  A  B  E   F#m  B  A  E

E                                 F#m
Baby hit the back door breathing real heavy
              A                                    B             E
Said the boys in the alley wouldn't leave her alone
                                          F#m
Mama did her make-up in a terrible hurry
         B                                A              E
She finally got ready but the boys were gone
 F#m                           G#m    
Mama don't you worry night's approaching
                A                                     B             E
There's a hole in Heaven where some sin slips through
                                 F#m
Close your eyes and dream real steady
   B                              A       E
Maybe just a little will spill on you
                     F#m    G#m                 E
The dark don't lie and   dreams come true
 A                         F#m         E
Could be a few will see you through

Old lady Rose looking down her nose
At lonely miss Lily hiding in the hall
Lily's just praying for the trial to be over
Rosy's just waiting for the axe to fall
Show me off on the way to town
The sky's still shiny and the earth's still brown
Tell the judge I'm ready for the [?????]
Gonna' dance in their faces when the guitar sounds
It won't be long I'll be long gone
I been leaning toward the shadows all along

Those in the know say how it goes
You plan on reaping you better sow
You plan on sleeping you better keep moving
Sleeping ain't allowed around here you know
Tell me please when the rolling's over
Me and my baby gonna' have some fun
Bury our backs in a bed of clover
Smile in style while the sun goes down
Snake eyes cry, boxcar sigh
Oh, seven's in the middle just wondering why
The dark don't lie and dreams come true
All it takes is one or two
Maybe just a few will see you through
Maybe just a few will see you through
