1. Forever Green
G
Well my shirt is sweaty
C
in my smoky Chevrolet
G
Reeling from cocaine
D
G
I hear crickets talking
C
and i hear a pool stick chalking
G
I must be in some bar room baby
D
G
Well the band that's following me
C
I can hear them hollerin'
G
Dyin to catch me
D
G
I could run forever
C
If you'd undo this leather
G
Strap around me
D
C
Oh please
D
G C
Take me up to your room
D

Your Grandma was a country singer
I’d love to have seen her
Making some bar room swing

I can see you doing that
If you had a Stetson hat
And an electric guitar to sing with

May you stay forever green
Like the country between us
Far after our hands unfold

And I bid farewell
In that old stairwell
Leadin’ to the narrow road

Oh please take me up to your room

2. Ahab
(Intro):

F Fm C C7
F Fm C7 C G


(Verse 1):
C G
Oh, take me to the place,
F Fm C
Where the Queen Anne’s lace runs wild
E
Down some country bend
Am D G
I’m sick of New York again.

(Verse 2):
C G
Oh man, I’ve got it bad,
F Fm C
I’m like Ahab, I’m in love.
E
Such a dirty thought,
Am D G
For the one fish I never caught.

(Verse 3):
It’s all been written, they say,
Like a school play in the gymnasium
So you can tell Don DeLillo
He’s got a fine sense of humor.

F Fm C C7
This fever might last forever
F Fm C Am G C
You and me, kid, we should stick together.

(instrumental ):
C G
F Fm
C E
Am D G

(Verse 4):
Take me to some bull fight,
In white and gold tights and a purple cape.
I’ll do just fine,
I’ve got victory on my mind.

(Verse 5):
Molly Johnson's, down your stairs,
Always dyin' her hair like she's on the run
If you ever escape, I could use a little change in pace

This fever might last forever,
You and me, kid, we should stick together.
Yo-dee-oh-day-hee, Yo-dee-oh-day-hee, Yo-dee-oh-day-hee....

Oh take me to the place,
Where the Queen Anne’s lace runs wild...

3. White Limo
Not sure on some of the last verse

A............

White legs white hands white limou- D -sine
A why you going so fast Cincinatti D Queen
A could I love you D in the bathroom E stall
A could I love you D at the Union E Hall

A
White legs white noise white country blues
Black helicopter on the news
could you meet me at your agency
could you jail me for petty vagrancy

(pause)D (pause) What a lovely E lady
(pause) D (pause) what a lovely limo- E -sine

White legs white lies white wedding gown
Just a little red to paint the town
Could you meet me after the ghetto games
Where the goons and the cripsters wait ?
W-A-A-I-T

What a lovely lady
what a lovely limousine

4. Let Me Come Home
Intro: G C G | G D G|
G C G | G D C G|

G C G
Oh Momma, my shoes don’t fit
G D G
And it’s hard to keep this candle lit
G C G
Oh Momma, my clothes are torn
G D C G
And I ain’t got blanket to keep me warm

C G
Let me come home
C G
Let me come home
C G
Let me come home
D G
I’m cold and I’m alone

Oh Papa, taught me to be strong
But Papa, this world’s gone wrong
Papa, sorry for what I done
And I know I ain’t good enough to be your son

Let me come home
Let me come home
Let me come home
I’m cold and I’m alone

My brother, I know that I stole her
But brother, you did not own her
And brother, you were a friend of mine
And I thought you’d be with me on the firing line

Let me come home
Let me come home
Let me come home
I’m cold and I’m alone

Oh my sister, your grave stands still
Under the wall of High Cannon Hill
My sister, I go back to that place
Where we hid from our troubles and the whole human race

Let me come home
Let me come home
Let me come home
I got flowers to bring

5. The Captain’s Wife
6. New Mexico

Am G Am
Dm E Am
C G, Dm Am
Am E Am

O the Am Devil shall not G touch you while I Am live
The Dm Devil shall not E touch you while I Am live
Well C He crawls across my G land, like a Dm snake in the Am sand
O the Am Devil shall not E touch you while I Am stand

They killed everyone of Carter’s sons
They took his wife, his daughters and his guns
And they cut away his head
‘Fore he was even dead
The Devil shall not touch you while I live

F G Am
O-O-Oh!
F G Am
O-O-Oh!
C G Dm Am
O-Oh! O-Oh!
Am E Am

The Devil shall not touch you while I live
The Devil shall not touch you while I live
Jesus Christ beside me, my wife, my girls behind me
The Devil shall not touch you while I live

They killed my dogs burning down my barn
I hear them laughing, cursing in the corn
First one through that door, he won't curse no more
The Devil shall not touch you while I live

O-O-Oh!
O-O-Oh!
O-Oh! O-Oh!

Well, God ain’t hidden in the leaves
Ain’t love or joy or laughter that he sees
‘Cause he’s in my Smith and Wesson
And I’m asking for His blessing
To spit the red man’s soul into the breeze


7. Old Song

D Shuttin' down the A motel now G that his bodies D found
lying in blue A water in the G shore of Tarry-A-town
his D body rose in A women's clothes and G tangled on the D dock
G in Sundays' best they're laid to A rest

I quit my job at the armory and met you under the overpass
a siren on the highway - high and silently it passed
We laid between the evergreens i turned and heard you sing
it's good to be young and free

Everything that money brings sure don't mean a damn
while you lie beside me where this wild highway spans
the unicorn defends itself from man and hound alike
but it don't win and soon it's skinned

I stood outside your window i couldn't see within
your curtains faintly stirring like a restless little thing
I lit a smoke as morning broke - i knew it'd be a while
before I'd find peace of mind

8. Marie
G You say we ran our course
D I'm feeling like a racing horse
G got a feeling I'll be running all my C life
all my li-i-i-fe G all I'm D asking you C Marie
spend C one more fare on D me
give me D one more G night, yeah.

I think I'm sharp enough
I read Moby Dick and stuff
i guess i ain't smart enough for you
yo-o-u all I'm asking you Marie
spend one more fare on me
give me one more night

you say you don't wanna dance
until i wash my hands
but my hands ain't dirty as my mind
my mi-i-i-nd all I'm asking you Marie
spend one more fare on me
give me one more night

You say this song's in G
I don't fuckin give a shit
I wrote this song in the key of love
love! all I'm asking you Marie
spend one more fare on me
give me one more night

9. Marlboro Man
Capo on 2
Listen to the song to get the rythym

E Am
It's almost definite I'm really on my way to Hell
F G C
Get down dog, get down
E Am
I'll be your only friend, kill you in the end
F G C
Get down dog, get down

Am G C F
What's the meaning of these shows you watch
Am G C F
what's the meaning of these rows of clocks
F Am G
What's the meaning of Love

You still won't eat a thing, it's a goddamn skeleton
Get down dog, get down
The priest is on his way to give his last hooray
Get down dog, get down

What's the meaning of this cross he waves
what's the meaning of this lost parade
what's the meaning of Love

C G C G C G C
Come along Miss America, come along with me
Am G C F
your Marlboro Man's never coming home again
F Am G
but you still got me

two lovers in the park, it's way after dark
Get down dog, get down
the boss is in the shade, his workers all been paid
Get down dog, get down

what's the meaning of this flag he flies
what's the meaning of this firework sky
what's the meaning of Love

Come along Miss America, come along with me
your Marlboro Man is never coming home again
but you still have me
