CASEY'S LAST RIDE    Written by Kris Kristofferson
                     Performed by Kris Kristofferson
                     Performed by Johnny Cash


Am                              G
Casey joins the hollow sound of silent people walking down
    F                              Em
The stairway to the subway and the shadows down below
Am                                  G
Following the footsteps through the neon darkened corridor
   F                         Em            Am
Of silent desperation, never speaking to a soul

    F                               Am  
The poison air he's breathing has a dirty smell of dying
           G                                Em
Cause it's never seen the sunshine and it's never felt the 

Am                           G
Casey minds the arrows and ignores the fatal echoes
       F                                 Em
Of the clicking of the turnstile and the rattle of the 

   C                                                    G
"Oh", she said "Casey it's been so long since I've seen you"
"Here," she said "Just a kiss to make a body smile"
"See," she said "I've put on new stockings just to please 
"Lord," she said "Casey can you only stay a while"

Am G C Am

Am                               G
Casey leaves the underground and stops inside the golden 

    F                              Em
For something wet to wipe away the chill that's in his bones
Am                           G
Seeing his reflection in the lives of all the lonely men
    F                               Em              Am
Who reach for any thing they can to keep from going home

F                             Am
Standing in the corner, Casey drinks his pint of bitter
      G                             Em
Never glancing in the mirror at the people passing by
   Am                              G
He stumbles as he's leaving and he wonders if the reason
       F                              Em                 Am
Is the beer that's in his bell or the tear that's in his eye

  C                                              G
"Oh", she said "I suppose you seldom think about me"
"Now", she said, "Now that you've a family of your own
"Still", she said "It's so blesses good to feel your body
"Lord", she said "Casey it's a shame to be alone"
