VERSE 1
    C              G                   C
The parking lot is rammed with shotgun pickup trucks
       F                               C
At the Jones Rubber plant where all the guys end up
F                                         C
Beer-drinking boy scouts living life like they ain't stuck
         Am                G                       F
On these quicksand streets   with their girls in a sling
          Am             G                   C
I'm in my bedroom on the verge of a terrible thing
 
 
VERSE 2
                C               G         C
'Round here, we all take up our cross and hang on His holy name
        F                                          C
But the cards that I was dealt will get you thrown out of the game
    F                                                  C
Hey momma, can't you see your boy is wrapped up in the strangle silk
        Am          G                  F
Of this cobweb town   where culture is king?
          Am             G                   C
I'm in my bedroom on the verge of a terrible thing
 
 
CHORUS
           F    Am                  C
I close my eyes     and think of the water
           F          Am            G
Out at the Salt Creek     when I was young
 
 
VERSE 3
C               G               C
Down at Old Mill Park, half the town's in tow
   F                              C
To crown the Bathing Beauty of the rodeo
          F                                     C
While her mother fights back proud tears a young cowboy gives the nod
          Am                G                     F
The chute opens, bull draws blood, and the gift is accepted by God
          Am                G                     F
The chute opens, bull draws blood, and the gift is accepted by God
        Am                G                F
In this barbed wire town     of barbed wire dreams
          Am             G                  C
I'm in my bedroom on the verge of a terrible thing
 
 
CHORUS
           F    Am                  C
I close my eyes     and think of the water
           F          Am            G
Out at the Salt Creek     when I was young
           F    Am                  C
I close my eyes     and think of the water
                F     Am            G
Out at the Salt Creek     when I was young
