Levelland by Robert Earl Keen 


Capo 2||

Intro: C F C Am F

C
Flatter than a tabletop
F
Makes you wonder why they stopped here
C               Am                   F
Wagon must have lost a wheel or they lacked ambition one
C
On the great migration west
F
Separated from the rest
C                      Am
Though they might have tried their best
     F
They never caught the sun

        G
So they sunk some roots down in the dirt
   F
To keep from blowin' off the earth
G
Built a town around here
             F                G
And when the dust had all but cleared
               C              F              G
They called it Levelland, the pride of man
   C           F    G
In Levelland

C
Granddad grew the dry land wheat
F
Stood on his own two feet
C            Am                  F
His mind got incomplete and they put him into the home
C
Daddy's cotton grows so high
F
Sucks the water table dry
C                  Am
Rollin’ sprinklers circle by
F
Bleedin' them to the bone
      G
And I won't be here when it comes a day
   F
It all dries up and blows away
    G
I'd hang around just to see
         F              G             C
But they never had much use for me in Levelland
           F          G         C          F     G
They don't understand me out in Levelland

      F                      Am              G             D
And I watch those jet trails carvin’ up that big blue sky
F        Am                     G
Coast to coasters watch 'em go
      F                     Am
And I never would blame 'em one damn bit
        G                    C
If they never looked down on this
F        Am                G
Not much here they'd wanna know
     C
Just Levelland
               F                 G
Far as you can point your hand
            C          F   G
Nothin' but Levelland

F Am G C F Am G F Am G C F Am G

C
Mama used to roll her hair
F
Back before the central air
C            Am                F
We'd sit outside and watch the stars at night
C
She'd tell me to make a wish
F
I'd wish we both could fly
C                 Am
Don't think she's seen the sky
F
Since we got the satellite dish and
C
I can hear the marching band
F
Doin' the best they can to play
C             Am       F
"Smoke on the Water", "Joy to the World"
C
I've paid off all my debts
F
Got some change left over yet and I'm
C            Am
Gettin' on a whisper jet
          F                   G        C
I'm gonna fly as far as I can get from Levelland
          F           G            
doin' the best I can
       C                   F      G
Out in Levelland - imagine that

(C   F G)x4     Am F G C
