just another white trash county kiss.
          DD chord               DD chord                DD chord     DD chord
In 'Sixty-One, long brown hair and foolish eyes.

  He looked just like you'd want him to
             AA chord                     GG chord
some kind of slick chrome American prince.

she was looking for a nightgown.

I got my money on a palm tonight.

    DD chord                 DD chord        
The change came in disguise of

revelation set his soul on fire.
    DD chord               Gmaj7Gmaj7 chord           DD chord       DD chord
She says she always knew he'd come around.
        DD chord            DD chord                 
And the decades disappear like sinking 
BmBm chord                  BmBm chord
ships that we persevere.
             GG chord                  GG chord     
God gives us hope, but we still fear, 
         DD chord         DD chord
we don't know, the mind is poison.

The drawBridge is closing.

  I saw the ending when they turned the page, 
           AA chord                 DD chord
I threw my money and I ran away.
                DD chord                      AA chord
Straight to the valley of the great divide.

  and the sky won't snow.

it's such a bitter form of refuge.

Or did you leave it back in 'Sixty-One?
       DD chord                        GG chord                  
In the cadence of a young man's eyes, 
GG chord                           DD chord  
  and where the dreams roll high.
