Thirsty Boots
(Eric Andersen)

Better listen to the recording to get a feel for it first.
A harmonica would also help.

Guitar: standard tuning, capo IV

Intro:        G G (F#) C G C G D D (G) D D (E) 

Notes: use Travis picking style, playing individual notes
in parentheses along with chords on either first
or sixth string. The D (F# ) chord is the usual D 
major chord with an F#  added on the sixth string;
likewise for G (F# ).

       G         G (F#)  C    G 
You've long been on the open road,
            C               G  D (F#) 
You've been sleeping in the rain,
     G     G (F#)     C     G 
From dirty words and muddy cells
     C           G           D (F#) 
Your clothes are smeared and stained,
        G     G (F#)     C     G 
But the dirty words and muddy cells
     C       G      D (F#) 
Will soon be hid in shame
   G            C    G 
So only stop to rest yourself
     Am      Am (G) D (F#) D (G) D (E) 
Till you are off again

   G             C 
Chorus:        So take off your thirsty boots
    G          C 
and stay for a while,
     G                G (F#) Em 
Your feet are hot and weary,
Am  Am (G)    D (F#) 
from a dusty mile,
    G           C 
And maybe I can make you laugh,
G           C 
maybe I can try,
         G               G (F#) 
I'm just looking for the evening,
   Am Am (G) D (F#)   G C D7 G C D7 
the morning in your eye.

So tell me of the ones you saw
As far as you could see
Across the plain from field to town
A-marching to be free
And of the rusted prison gates
That tumbled by degree
Like laughing children, one by one,
They look like you and me

Chorus

(Harmonica interlude).

I know you are no stranger down
The crooked rainbow trails
From dancing cliff-edged shattered sills
Of slandered, shackled jails
For the voices drift up from below
As the walls they're being scaled
Yes, all of this, and more, my friend,
Your song shall not be failed.

Chorus.

Yes, you've long been on the open road
You've been sleeping in the rain
From dirty words and muddy cells
Your clothes are smeared and stained
But the dirty words, the muddy cells,
They'll soon be judged insane
So only stop to rest yourself
'til you are off again.

Chorus.
