INTRO: Bb F Fm C F

#1.
F
I give my woman half my money at the general store.
                                              C
I said, now buy a little groceries, and don't spend 

no more.
     F
Then she paid ten dollars for a ten cent hat and bought 
     Ab    Bb                    C    Fm   F
some store bought cat food for a mean eyed cat.


#2.
F      Bb
When I give her ten more dollars for a one way ticket
        Fm  F  Fm        F  
she was mad as she could be.
               Fm        F           Bb
Then I bet ten more that if she ever left she'd come 
  C                F
a-crawlin' back to me.

F
When I woke up this mornin' and I turned my head there 
                                     C
wasn't a cotton pickin' thing on her side of the bed.
  F
I found a little old note where her head belonged,
         Bb                      Fm       F
it said, dear John, honey, baby, I'm long gone.


#4.
       Bb
When I heard a whistle blowin', and the big wheels 
                   Fm        F
a-turnin' I was as scared as I could be.
                           Bb
I put on my overalls and I headed for town, I'm gonna 
C                   F
bring her back with me.

#5.
F                                                Fm
I asked the man down at the station if he'd seen her there.
  F                                      C
I told him all about her pretty eyes and long, blonde hair.
   F
He spit his tobacco, said, I'll be dad blamed, I believe I 
Bb                        C    Db    F
did see her leavin' on an east bound train.


#6.
Bb
I bought a round trip ticket on the east bound train, I was 
F
broke as I could be.
                      Gm    Bb                        C
But when I come back, gotta buy another ticket, gonna bring 
    Fm   C    F
her back with me.


#7.
      Bb                                              F
Well, I got off the train somewhere in Arkansas and I worked 

up the guts to call my mother-in-law.
               Bb
She said, I'll tell you where she is, if you act right.
      F                         C                 F
She's workin' four to twelve at Trucker's World tonight.


OUTRO:
F
When I walked in she saw me, and she took off her apron,

and she grabbed her goin' home hat.
             Bb
She bought a ticket with her tips and now we've curled up on 
          C                              F
the sofa, me and her, and that mean eyed cat.




A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
