Ft. Worth Blues (ver. 2)

Song Author Steve Earle Submitted by: Anonymous

I[D]n Fort Worth all the n[G]eo  [*]n's shinin b[D]right
Pretty [A7]lights red and [D]blue
[D]They shut down all the [G]ho  [*]nky tonks [D]tonight
Say a prayer or [A7]two if they only [D]knew
[D]You used to say the [G]hi  [*]ghway was your [D]home
But we both [A7]know that ain't [D]true
[D]It's just the only [G]pl  [*]ace a man can [D]go  
When he don't [A7]know where he's travelin [D]to  
But [G]Colorado's [A]always clean and [D]healing
[G]Tennessee in [A]Spring is green and [D]cool
[D]It never really [G]wa  [*]s your kind of [D]town
So you went [A7]around with the Forth Worth [D]Blues
[D]Somewhere out [G]acr  [*]oss the great [D]divide
Where the sky is [A7]wide and the clouds are [D]few  
A man can see his [G]wa  [*]y clear to the [D]light
Just hold on [A7]tight that's all you gotta [D]do  
[G]And they say Texas [A7]weather's always [D]changin'
[G]And one thing change'll [A7]bring is somethin' [D]new  
And Houston really [G]ai  [*]n't too bad a [D]town
So you hung [A7]around with the Ft. Worth [D]Blues


[D]There's a full moon over [G]Ga  [*]lway Bay toni[D]ght  
Silver [A7]light over green and [D]blue
[D]And every place I [G]tr  [*]avel to [D]find
Some kind of a [A7]sign that you've been t[D]hrough
But A[G]msterdam was [A7]always good for [D]grieving
[G]And London never [A7]fails to leave me b[D]lue  
[D]Paris really [G]ai  [*]n't my kind of t[D]own  
So I walked [A7]around with the Ft. Worth B[D]lues

In Fort Worth all the neo[*]n's shinin bright
Pretty lights red and blue
They shut down all the ho[*]nky tonks tonight
Say a prayer or two if they only knew
You used to say the hi[*]ghway was your home
But we both know that ain't true
It's just the only pl[*]ace a man can go
When he don't know where he's travelin to
But Colorado's always clean and healing
Tennessee in Spring is green and cool
It never really wa[*]s your kind of town
So you went around with the Forth Worth Blues
Somewhere out acr[*]oss the great divide
Where the sky is wide and the clouds are few
A man can see his wa[*]y clear to the light
Just hold on tight that's all you gotta do
And they say Texas weather's always changin'
And one thing change'll bring is somethin' new
And Houston really ai[*]n't too bad a town
So you hung around with the Ft. Worth Blues


There's a full moon over Ga[*]lway Bay tonight
Silver light over green and blue
And every place I tr[*]avel to find
Some kind of a sign that you've been through
But Amsterdam was always good for grieving
And London never fails to leave me blue
Paris really ai[*]n't my kind of town
So I walked around with the Ft. Worth Blues
