ALKALI
Tom Russell

Intro: (C)//// //// (Dm)//// //// (F)//// (G)// (G7)// (C)//// (Dm)// (G)//

(C) Alkali, here's (Dm) mud in your eye
(F) Lost in the desert (G) 25 years or (C) more //// (Dm)// (G)//
(C) Whiskey streams - and your (Dm) goldfield dreams 
(F) Lady Luck won't (G) let you dark her (C) door

Yeah they (Am) tell me you are a (Em) ghost of a man
(F) And I be-(G)-lieve it's (C) true
They (Am) say you had a (Em) woman once
But she (D) turned her (D7) back on (G) you

You old (Dm) gold-minin' hobo, (F) dry-well (G) desert rat, (C) Alkali
 
Put the (Dm) bacon on to fry
The (F) sun's comin' up and the (G) mule's wait'n for his (C) grain //// 
(Dm)// (G)//
Just a (C) one room shack  out by the (Dm) Santa Fe tracks
Its an (F) ole lick of Earth and its (G) screamin' for a drop of (C) rain

And there's a (Am) time for work and a (Em) time for play
And a (F) time for (G) lyin' (C) down
And the (Am) road might lead to the (Em) rainbows end
A (D) dusty old (D7) desert (G) town
 
You old (Dm) gold-minin' hobo, (F) dry-well (G) desert rat, (C) Alkali //// ////

(Dm)//// //// (F)//// (G)//// (C)//// (Dm)// (G)//

(C) Alkali, there's a (Dm) buzzard in the sky
Hes a-(F)-countin' his chances on (G) pickin' your skinflint (C) bones //// 
(Dm)// (G)//
So (C) raise your hand  and throw a (Dm) curse on the land
They gonna (F) find you one day (G) lyin' 'neath an unmarked (C) stone
 
And the (Am) desert is a (Em) lonely place
For a (F) man to (G) lose his (C) head
They (Am) tell me when you start to (Em) talkin' to yourself
Ya (D) might as (D7) well be (G) dead

You old (Dm) gold-minin' hobo, (F) dry-well (G) desert rat, (C) Alkali

(2x)
(Am) Alkali, (Em) Alkali
You old (F) gold-minin' hobo, (G) dry-well (G7) desert rat, (C) Alkali
