Des Moine or Baton Rouge?

(Pickering, Binau)

 

Intro: Em 

G

Even as a half-breed, I must say

        D                       Em

It’s strange that you just use one hand to pray

C

I love you, but I do not understand you

D                                       Em

Reading about the guns you drew

 

    Am7            

Then I truly loved the men of the West

             D

Now the cowboys are worse than the rest

 

             Am

What would you rather do?

    D

Spend your last coin in Des Moines

     Am                   C                Em

Or play the final blues in Baton Rouge

 

Am

Ambivalence is the word to describe what I feel

  D                                                Em     

But still I’ll make you a deal:

G

Though I still like you, I don’t understand you

D                  Em

I will end up in Schenectady or in Kalamazoo

 

     Am             

As boy I truly loved the men of the West

             D

Now the cowboys are worse than the rest
