Faster Horses

[G]He was an old-time cowboy don't you understand

His eyes were sharp as razor blades his face was leather-tanned
His [C]toes were pointed inwards from a-[G]hanging on a horse
He was an old [D7]philosopher of [G]course


He was so thin I swear you could have used him for a whip

He had to drink the beer to keep his breeches on his hips
I [C]knew I had to ask him about the [G]mysteries of life
He spit between his [D7]boots and he [G]replied

It's faster horses [C]younger women [D7]older whiskey more [G]money


He smiled and all his teeth were covered with tobacco stains

He said it don't do man no good to pray for peace and rain
[C]Peace and rain is just a way to say [G]prosperity
And buffalo chips is [D7]all it means to [G]me  


I told him I was a poet I was looking for the truth

I do not care for horses whiskey women or other loot
I [C]said I was a writer my soul was [G]all on fire
He looked at me and [D7]he said you are a [G]liar

It's faster horses [C]younger women [D7]older whiskey more [G]money


Well I was disillusioned if I say the least

I grabbed him by the collar and I jerked him to his feet
There [C]was something cold and shiny [G]laying in my head
So I started to be[D7]lieve the things he [G]said


Well my poet days are over and I'm back to being me

As I enjoy the peace and comfort of reality
If [C]my boy ever asks me what it is [G]that I have learned
I think that I [D7]will readily a[G]ffirm


Son it's faster horses [C]younger women [D7]older whiskey more [G]money
Faster horses [C]younger women [D7]older whiskey more [G]money
Faster horses [C]younger women [D7]older whiskey more [G]money
