Steve Earle
2X - (Bb F C F  Bb F C )

       Bb              F                  C              F
He was standing on the highway, somewhere way out in the sticks
   Bb             F               C
Guitar across his shoulder like a 30.06
    Bb               F                    C             F
He was staring in my headlights, when I come around the bend
           Bb          F               C
Climbed up on my shotgun side and told me with a grin


Bb             F            C        F
Im goin to New York City
      Bb                   F                C
Ive never really been there, just like the way it sounds
Bb   F                   C    F
I heard the girls are pretty
                Bb           F                C
There must be something happening there, its just too big a town

He was cold and wet and hungry, but he never did complain
Said hed come a thousand miles through sleet and snow and rain
He had a hundred stories about, the places that hed been
Hed hang around a little while and hit the road again

Repeat Chorus

See, Ive been to New York City, seems like it was yesterday
I was standing like a pilgrim on the great white way
The girls were really pretty, but they wouldnt talk to me
I held out about a week, went back to Tennessee

So, I thought I better warn him, as he climbed out of my car
Grabbed his battered suitcase and shouldered his guitar
I knew I was just jealous, if I didnt wish him well
I slipped the kid a twenty, said, Billy em hell

Repeat Chorus Twice
