VERSE 1
D                       D7
Now I was driving down, A West Texas highway
G                        Fdim
I seen a hitchhiker, And he was going my way
D                                 B7                  E       A
He didn't look suspicious, And he didn't look any too clean
D                        D7
I put on my brakes And I opened my door
G                                 Fdim
I could tell he was a bum, By the muddy boots he wore
            D             B7            E             A    D     G D  A
He said I'm going down to Haskell Got a woman down in Abilene
 
 
VERSE 2
        D    D7
He said son, East Texas Is where I come from
G                               Fdim
I been ridin' that Jacksonville rodeo And I got so humdrum
             D                  B7                        E     A
Now I'm just traveling around A whole lot of Texas I've seen
D                       D7
I'm mighty glad You was pushing down my way
        G                          Fdim
In your brand new clothes And your great big Chevrolet
D             B7            E             A    D     G D  A
Going down to Haskell Got a woman down in Abilene

VERSE 3
            D                            D7
Well he was grinning like a possum and a mighty happy rascal
G                            Fdim
And he waved good-bye when I let him out in Haskell
D                                     B7                    E    A
And that's about the last of that old road tramp I ever did see
D                             D7
But I'm still wishing To this very day
G                               Fdim
That he had my clothes And this great big Chevrolet
           D            B7            E            A    D    G    D   A
And it was me going to Haskell with a woman down in Abilene

D                              D7
Yeah I'm still wishing To this very day
G                               Fdim
That he had my clothes And this great big Chevrolet
           D            B7            E            A    D    G    D   A
And it was me going to Haskell with a woman down in Abilene
