GOODNIGHT LOVING TRAIL   Time: 3/4   Tenor: D   Bass: C
- Bruce "Utah" Phillips, 1973, on: Starlight on the Rails
- Record: Ian Tyson, "Ian Tyson" (1984), Key: D#


1          *          57          *
Too old to wrangle or ride on the swing
    *            *             1           *
You beat the tri-angle and you curse every-thing
   *          *             4            *    (*)
If dirt was a kingdom, then you'd be the king____


CHORUS:
       1         57            1      4     (*)
On the Goodnight Trail, on the Loving Trail____
    1           *           57     *
Our old woman's lonesome to-night____
     1           57           1            4    (*)
Your French Harp blows like a lone bawling calf____
       1          6m         2m            57
It's a wonder the wind don't tear off your skin
    *            *            4      1
Get in there and blow out the light____


          1             *              57        *
With your snake oil and herbs and your liniments too
        *      *            1          *
You can do any-thing that a doctor can do
   *           *             4           *    (*)
Ex-cept find a cure for your own goddamn stew____


    1                *           57           *
The cook-fire's gone out and the coffee's all gone
    *            *            1           *
The boys are all up and we're raising the dawn
       *             *         4         *    (*)
You're still sitting there all lost in a song____

  1              *             57          *
I know that some-day that I'll be just the same
*          *        1          *
Wearing an apron in-stead of a name
    *          *             4           *     (*)
But no one can change it and no one's to blame____

'Cause the desert's a book writ in lizards and sage
It's easy to look like an old torn-out page
All faded and cracked with the colors of age
