The Passenger
By Chris LeDoux

       G                             Em
It was dark and I was drivin' down a loney Texas road
    C                 D                  Em
The night was hot and sleep pulled at my eyes
      G                      Em
I was thinkin' bout the wild times and the women that I'd had
      C                  D              Em
The deceitful things I'd done and those lies

G                              D
Standin' in the shadows by the side of the road
      C                        Em
Was a figure of a withered old man
   G                       D
He wore a black bandanna a rolled brim Stetson hat 
       C                    Em
With a two inch scarlet hat band

   G                              Em
He held his wrinkled hand up as a sign to shut her down
     C               D              Em
So I pulled over and stopped by his side
   G                       Em
He opened up the door slid in and sat down
        C  D              Em
He said my ain't it hot tonight

  G                           D
I studied this old man and it seemed mighty strange
    C                      Em
For him to be out here all alone
G                              D
Then he started talkin' and he told me many things
   C                         Em
Of times like both of us had known

   G                                Em
He told me of the wild life and the women that he'd had
    C                D            Em
How none of them had ever meant a thing
       G                        Em
And he told me of a black night much the same as this
       C           D                   Em
Of the strange and awesome things he'd seen
G                                    D
A man beside the road had raised his hand
                           C                   Em
and flagged him down so he stopped and let him in
     G                              D
That stranger told him stories like I am hearing now
         C                      Em
Bout the wild times and all the sin

         G                                Em
Then the car got cold and clammy and this old man looked at me
        C        D             Em
He said boy I've come here for you
     G                           Em
Your days of wicked sinnin' have come to an end
       C              D                 Em
and as mortal on this earth boy you are through

         G                            D
Then his eyes got red and fiery as he took his Stetson off
     C                             Em
To reveal his evil horns shiny and black
   G                                D
My God the fear came o'er me and my senses were all lost
  C                                Em
I fought with him until we finally crashed

     G                            Em
Next day the car was found at the bottom of a draw
          C          D                Em
The young cowboy was found beside the wreck
His car had been consumed by fire 
but the cowboy had no marks
           C                  D              Em
Except the smokin' pitch fork brand upon his neck

That's it! Have fun!
