Brooklyn Kid     (capo 2nd)


Well I gotta friend that lives south of town

Loves to sit and burn one down

G                         C                  D
Spin some vinyl on his stereo

Every now and then he speaks of war

One tour of duty on a foreign shore

G                    C                D
Fightin' for his way home

G                    C                  D
Fightin' for his way home

G           C             D
[ Tab from: ]
Returnin' home to his native land
Left New York for Texas man
Quieter times were in his cards
He met a girl she met a man
Dropped to his knees and he took her hand
A simple life ain't that hard
No, a simple life ain't all that hard

G             C             D

A new generation on the ground
Nothin' in the world could bring him down
Flyin' like he had wings
Several years came and went
Not one of them was poorly spent
A good man's life he was chiselin'
Yeah, a good man's life he was chiselin'

Reflecting on the Viet-Cong
Uncle John's Band and a Dylan song
Smellin' like it's supper time
You know it brought a tear to his eye
The day that Jerry Garcia died
He said he was the genius of his time
Yeah, A Friend of the Devil is a Friend of Mine

Don't try to find it
Make the time
A couple of joints and a bottle of wine
You'll be glad that you did
With the Grateful Dead spinnin' round
Kick your feet back and be astound
By the life of the Brooklyn kid
