Gm6/B♭ x1x030THE OLD HOMESTEAD
DDUp and down the old Fhomestead CThe naked G6ridBer galGm6lopsB♭ through his headD And although the mooFn isn't full CHe still G6feeBls the pullGm6 B♭ D DOut on the floor where the Fcowboys dance CApproaching G6sloBwly atGm6 a gB♭lance D Here comes the Fshadow of his stance CThe reins are G6falBlin' G6froB♭m his handsD - Shadow - "Why do you ride that crazy horse?" Inquires the shadow with little remorse Just then a priest comes down the stairs With a sack of dreams and old nightmares - Rider - "Who are you," the rider says "You dress in black but you talk like a Fed You spout ideas from books that you read Don't you care about this guy's head?" Just then the sound of hoofbeats was heard And the sky was darkened by a prehistoric bird Who flew between the unfulfilled moon And the naked rider, to a telephone booth. - Bird 1 - "We'll call the moon and see what's up I've got some change in this little tin cup We'll say that the shadow is growin' dim And we need some light to get back to him F/DJust one call should G/Ddo it all B♭/DI'll carve this number on the wallC/D With my Dbeak." D*Flying feathers were Fall around C*The air was G6filBled with a Gm6ringB♭y soundD *Two more birds the Fsecond and the third C*Came down from the G6skyB♭ to deliver the word D - Birds 2 and 3 - D"Where have you been," they Fsaid to the first C"Get back to the G6cloBuds, we're Gm6dyinB♭g of thirstD There's not enough time to Fmake that call CLet's ditch this G6ridBer, Gm6shadB♭ow and all."D The sky was filled with the beautiful birds Still on the ground some crying was heard With his dime in his hand and his hand on the dial His cars were sweating as he forced a smile Hoofbeats beating across the range He rode through the night with his cup of change Tired and beaten he fell into slumber But up in the sky they still had his number DUp and down the old Fhomestead CThe naked G6ridBer galGm6lopsB♭ through his headD And although the mooFn isn't full CHe still G6feeBls the pullGm6 B♭ Still feels the pullF/D Still feels the pullG/D Still feels the pullB♭/D Still feels the pullC/D D
