Song Author Devil Makes Three Submitted by: Anonymous


[C]He grew up in a o[F]ne-horse town
[G]Wasn't much to do since all them [C]bars had closed [G]down
[C]He'd stare up to the stars sometimes when [F]no one was around
A[G]nd he dreamed of getting [C]out  

So he [F]bought himself a pick-up truck that was [G]covered up in rust
He found a [F]buddy for of shotgun seat that was [G]someone he could trust
And they [C]hit the gas, [C/B]headed west out [Am]to the setting sun
[F]When the dust had [G]cleared, they were [C]gone.


Well [F]leaving just came natural, that's the [G]way it seemed to him
He'd been [F]doing it so long, that's the [G]way he'd always been
And you can [C]find him in some [C/B]hotel room with the [Am]television on
H[C]e might be [C/B]high and he'll [Am]probably ramble on
You can [C]laugh beneath [C/B]fluorescent lights and [Am]drink until the dawn
But in the [F]mornin'....in the [G]mornin' when you wake up he'll be [C]gone.


[C]So he met a girl in a [F]town along the way
She had [G]beautiful brown eyes and a [C]place that he could [G]stay
[C]So he fell in love, and she [F]fell in love in kind
I[G]t was so perfect that of [C]course he lost his [G]mind.

He [F]snuck of the kitchen one [G]day before the dawn
S[F]he called out after him and [G]ran across the lawn
And he [C]said some things that he [C/B]didn't mean
That he'd [Am]best be travelin' on
[F]She shed some [G]tears and he was [C]gone.


Well [F]leaving just came natural, that's the [G]way it seemed to him
He'd been [F]doing it so long, that's the [G]way he'd always been
And you can [C]find him in some [C/B]hotel room with the [Am]television on
H[C]e might be [C/B]high and he'll [Am]probably ramble on
You can [C]laugh beneath [C/B]fluorescent lights and [Am]drink until the dawn
But in the [F]mornin'....in the [G]mornin' when you wake up he'll be [C]gone.


[C]Eighteen years later, fifteen-[F]hundred miles from home
H[G]e can't shake her from his mind though the [C]whiskey soaks his [G]bones
He[C] heads out on a back-roads in the [F]middle of the night
H[G]ead up to the meadow, you know he [C]timed that curve just [G]right
But some [F]bridges you cross over but the [G]rest you've got to burn
He [F]may have lost the road the road but I [G]know he made his turn

And as we [C]pulled him from the [C/B]wreckage, I p[Am]romised him a song
[F]Cuz it was [G]clear that he was [C]gone.


Well [F]leaving just came natural, that's the [G]way it seemed to him
He'd been [F]doing it so long, that's the [G]way he'd always been
And you can [C]find him in some [C/B]hotel room with the [Am]television on
H[C]e might be [C/B]high and he'll [Am]probably ramble on
You can [C]laugh beneath [C/B]fluorescent lights and [Am]drink until the dawn

But in the [F]mornin'....in the [G]mornin' when you wake up he'll be [C]gone.

He grew up in a one-horse town
Wasn't much to do since all them bars had closed down
He'd stare up to the stars sometimes when no one was around
And he dreamed of getting out

So he bought himself a pick-up truck that was covered up in rust
He found a buddy for of shotgun seat that was someone he could trust
And they hit the gas, headed west out to the setting sun
When the dust had cleared, they were gone.

Well leaving just came natural, that's the way it seemed to him
He'd been doing it so long, that's the way he'd always been
And you can find him in some hotel room with the television on
He might be high and he'll probably ramble on
You can laugh beneath fluorescent lights and drink until the dawn
But in the mornin'....in the mornin' when you wake up he'll be gone.

So he met a girl in a town along the way
She had beautiful brown eyes and a place that he could stay
So he fell in love, and she fell in love in kind
It was so perfect that of course he lost his mind.

He snuck of the kitchen one day before the dawn
She called out after him and ran across the lawn
And he said some things that he didn't mean
That he'd best be travelin' on
She shed some tears and he was gone.

Well leaving just came natural, that's the way it seemed to him
He'd been doing it so long, that's the way he'd always been
And you can find him in some hotel room with the television on
He might be high and he'll probably ramble on
You can laugh beneath fluorescent lights and drink until the dawn
But in the mornin'....in the mornin' when you wake up he'll be gone.

Eighteen years later, fifteen-hundred miles from home
He can't shake her from his mind though the whiskey soaks his bones
He heads out on a back-roads in the middle of the night
Head up to the meadow, you know he timed that curve just right
But some bridges you cross over but the rest you've got to burn
He may have lost the road the road but I know he made his turn

And as we pulled him from the wreckage, I promised him a song
Cuz it was clear that he was gone.

Well leaving just came natural, that's the way it seemed to him
He'd been doing it so long, that's the way he'd always been
And you can find him in some hotel room with the television on
He might be high and he'll probably ramble on
You can laugh beneath fluorescent lights and drink until the dawn

But in the mornin'....in the mornin' when you wake up he'll be gone.
