Subject: CRD: Navajo Rug by Tom Russell

Navajo Rug
==========
by:  Tom Russell
written by:  Tom Russell and Ian Tyson - End Of The Trail Music/Slick Fork

(capo 2nd fret)

G
Well it's three eggs up on whiskey toast
Am
Homefries on the side
C
Wash it down with truckstop coffee
D
Burns up your inside
       G
Just a Canyon, Colorado diner
      Am
And a waitress I did love
   C
We sat in the back  'neath an old stuffed bear
      D
And a worn out Navajo rug

         G
Well old Jack the boss he'd close at six
          Am
Then it's Katie bar the door
C
She'd pull down that Navajo rug
          D
And she'd spread it 'cross the floor
           G
Hey I saw lightning in the sacred mountains
        Am
Saw the dance of the turtle doves
C
Lyin' next to Katie
   D
On that old Navajo rug


Chorus:

G         Em     C                 D
Ai-yi-yi, Katie, shades of red and blue
      G   Em
Ai-yi-yi, Katie
C                                     G    Em   C   D
Whatever became of the Navajo rug and you?


       G
Well I saw old Jack about a year ago
            Am
He said the place burned to the ground
    C
And all he saved was an old bear tooth
    D
And Katie she left town
    G
But Katie she got her a souvenir too
     Am
Jack spat out a tabacco plug
             C
He said "You shoulda seen her runnin' through the smoke
D
Draggin' that Navajo rug."


Repeat Chorus

    G
Now everytime I cross the sacred mountains
    Am
And lightning breaks above
   C
It always takes me back in time
      D
To my long lost Katie love
       G
Ah but everything keeps on movin'
    Am
And everyone's on the go
     C
They don't make things that last anymore
       D
Like a double-woven Navajo


Repeat Chorus

Em     C                 D
Katie, shades of red and blue
      G   Em
Ay-yi-yi, Katie
C                                     G    Em  C   D  G
Whatever became of the Navajo rug and you?


>From the album Song Of The West - The Cowboy Collection 1997

previous Tom Russell or Ian Tyson albums
