Texas Chords

Tuning (this tab): Drop D

	For the chords, I like to use the open chord and strum the A,D, and G 
strings. Occasionally, Andy will strum the lower bass notes or hit the higher 
strings, but for the most part, he plays the chords on the "middle" strings.

Drop D:


D           G
My love has gone away
D                           A
Packed up her bags and then boarded that plane
D                           G
And I guess that the time I figured youíd wait
      A           G                D
Teary face, leaky breath, a bitter taste

D               G
Tripped out for 600 years
D                          A
Who would have thought Iíd make it last year?
D                              G
In a way it makes sense that I died and reappeared
        A               G            D
As that fly youíve been swatting for years


D             G
Calm down and make him a drink
D                         A
Pretty small town and the gossip repeats
    G                        A                       D
She took off her clothes and sat on the bed next to me
[ Tab from: ]
D           G
My heart is pumping my blood, 
D               A
your hearts not beating at all
     G                          A                     D
In a way it makes sense that it isnít, it just never was

D            G
Right now, a sinful exchange
D             A
Once done, unspeakable shame
    D                       G
And I shouldíve known where I took the blame
    A             G                D
The sweat and the shame fireless flame

A                G
Please god donít take him too
D          A
Take me, a replicant fool
       G            A         D
Lost a gear and now I hardly move
       A           D
Heís a kid, Iím a fool

D           G
Please son, where is your faith?
D                         A
Take off your bushels set fire to your pain
         G                       A                        D        
You will heal like a cut, let it scar let it scab, let it stain
     G       A               D
In a while I promise youíll see
       G                         A                           D      A
Youíre alive, not the blemish or burns that you keep on your feet

D                    G
I am a towel that is soaked to the core, 
D                     A      
heavier now than itís gotten before
    D                      G
And something inside of me needs more and more, 
          A        G        D
sooner than later never no more

          A        G        D
Sooner than later, never no more
