 Lone Star Blues Capo 2

[Intro] 
 D 

[Verse 1]
     D G 
At a truck stop in San Angelo, I saw a billboard about this rodeo
      A D 
This weekend out in El Paso, so I signed up to ride
                                              G 
I drew a bull called Original Sin, heard he'd killed a couple of men
                 A D 
Figured this was somethin' I could win, 'cause the devil was on my side
      D G 
I was havin' myself one hell of a ride, but I ended up disqualified
     A D 
That old bull just up an died, before they blew the whistle


[Chorus]
          D G 
With them North Texas blues, thought I'd paid all my dues
          A D 
Then them South Texas blues, told me son you ain't through
        D G 
Had the East Texas blues, an' the West Texas too
          A 
I've done all I know to do, tryin’ to lose, 
                                   D A D 
Tryin’ to lose these old Lone Star Blues


[Verse 2]
                 D G 
Well, I got laid off at Brown and Root, then on my way back to Cut 'N Shoot
          A D 
I lost my wristwatch an' my boots, shootin' dice with a dude from Houston
                     D G 
Well, there ain't no jobs here workin' cattle, I got on part-time hauling gravel
          A D 
With some outfit from Seattle, down here building custom homes


[Chorus]
          D G 
With them North Texas blues, thought I'd paid all my dues
          A D 
Then them South Texas blues, told me son you ain't through
        D G 
Had the East Texas blues, an' the West Texas too
          A 
I've done all I know to do, tryin’ to lose, 
                                   D D G A D G A D  
Tryin’ to lose these old Lone Star Blues


[Verse 3]
                  D 
Well I gassed my truck an' I packed my clothes, 
             G                             
Turned in my key and I hit the road
       A D 
I said Cow Town's where I'll go, you never know, I might get lucky
             D G 
Well I got a friend there turnin' knobs, at a place called Billy Bob's
        A D 
Said he thought he could get me a job there working as a bouncer
                   D G 
First night on the job was just insane, some old boy got all deranged
              A D 
Hit me in the head with a Harley chain, to this day, my ears still ring


[Chorus]
          D G 
With them North Texas blues, thought I'd paid all my dues
          A D 
Then them South Texas blues, told me son you ain't through
        D G 
Had the East Texas blues, an' the West Texas too
          A 
I've done all I know to do, tryin’ to lose, 
                                   D 
Tryin’ to lose these old Lone Star Blues


[Tag]
          A 
I've done all I know to do, tryin' to lose, 
                                   D A D Dsus D 
Tryin' to lose these old lone star blues
