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)

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

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


Chorus:

F         Am     F                 G
Ai-yi-yi, Katie, shades of red and blue
      F   Am
Ai-yi-yi, Katie
F                                     F    Am   F   G
Whatever became of the Navajo rug and you?


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


Repeat Chorus

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


Repeat Chorus

Am     F                 G
Katie, shades of red and blue
      F   Am
Ay-yi-yi, Katie
F                                     F    Am  F   G  F
Whatever became of the Navajo rug and you?


>From the album Song Of The West - The Cowboy Collection 1997
HMG/Hightone Records. This is a softer acoustic version than found on
previous Tom Russell or Ian Tyson albums
