How To Play

Em7
Standin' out in the night,
 
Elizah took me down
 
To see the Widow give
 
Rain to the town.
 
It's against the law
 
To be a tonic man,
 
But the Widow know
 
She's got the upper hand.
B7
So I went on in
 
Feelin' kinda wheezy.
 
You know she soothed my mind, boys,
     A7
She rocked me kinda slow and kinda easy
      Em7
All day and all night.
 
 
Em7         Em7
"Pick a card 'fore you go--
 
It's a long trip to Mexico."
 
Em7         Em7
Elizah waited by the door,
 
"I can't stay here anymore, no, no."
 
 
B7
Then she took a pill
 
She washed her feet in the mud
 
She said "Look out son,
         A7
You know, I just started a flood
 
For forty days and forty nights".
 
 
 
Then I got my shoes,
 
And 'Lizah called my name.
 
She said it looked to her
 
Like it's gonna rain.
 
Then the Cotton King
 
He came in chokin'
 
And the Widow laughed and said:
 
"I ain't jokin'"--
 
B7
"Think what you want"
 
She said, "Now don't ya tease me.
 
I just fell in love, boy,
  A7
So rock me kinda slow and kinda easy,
 
All day and all night."
 
 
Em7
Sweet William said
 
With a drunken head:
 
"If I had a boat,
 
I'd help y'all float".
 
Elizah stood there watching
 
William in a trance,
 
As the widowed saint done the St. Vitus dance.
B7
But just then an old man
 
With a boat named "Breezy"
 
Said: "You can ride with Clyde, boys,
      A7
If you rock it kinda slow and rock it kinda easy,
    Em7
All day and all night".
