How To Play

INTRO
Am  Em   Am   Em   Dm    G Abdim  Am  Em  Dm  G
 
VERSE 1
           C
He’s got a US flag on his front porch
     F                      C
To remind everyone where he lives
    F                         C            G/B
And up in the attic there are papers that prove
    Am                   Gsus4 G
The old house is finally his
      Em                    Dm7
After thirty-five years the grass still don’t grow
        Bdim        Abdim          Am
In that rock hard west Texas ground
      F                C/E              Dm      G
Where my old dad still clings to that old coyote
 C
town
 
CHORUS 1
     Em                      F
Like horses the pick-ups are parked out in front
     Em                      F
Of a cafe that don’t need a name
          Am7                    C/G
Where the old men rock and the tumbleweeds roll
          Dm7                       G
Past the boarded up windows down Main
 
 
VERSE 2
 C
Waist high weeds hide a for sale sign
        F                           C
At the drive-in where my innocence died
        F                    C            G/B
With a rusty advertisement, dangling by a nail
      Am                      G
Says Popcorn and Pepsi for a dime
     Em                     Dm7
And down at the depot where I left for good
          Dbdim            Abdim           Am
There’s a hobo with his three-legged hound
 F                         C/E
Waitin' for a train, that no longer comes to that
 Dm7     G    C
old coyote town
 
 
CHORUS 2
         Em                        F
And the interstate rumbles like a river that runs
      Em                          F
To a rhythm that don’t ever slow down
    Am7                   C/G
As cars and trucks, and time pass by
      Dm7          G
That old coyote town
 
VERSE 3
       C
Daddy falls asleep in the living room
        F               C
On the sofa with the TV on
 
     F                      C            G/C
Sometimes he waits for a phone call from me
    Am                   G
Sometimes he waits too long
       Em                                 Dm7
But I still think of the people and the place that
he loves
          Bdim          Abdim       Am
How much longer will they be around
          F               C/E
Till its ashes to ashes, dust to dust
          Dm     G     C
For that old coyote town
 
 
CHORUS 1
      Em                      F
Like horses the pick-ups are parked out in front
     Em                      F
Of a cafe that don't need a name
          Am7                    C/G
Where the old men rock and the tumbleweeds roll
          Dm7                       G
Past the boarded up windows down Main
 
 
CHORUS 2
         Em                        F
And the interstate rumbles like a river that runs
      Em                          F
To a rhythm that don’t ever slow down
    Am7                   C/G
As cars and trucks, and time pass by
      F     G    C
That old coyote town
                F     G    C
God bless that old coyote town
