written by White

performed by Waylon Jennings.


Capo on the 2nd fret.


Between E and A,put a E7,it sounds better.
 

Verse 1:
      E      A             B          E        
	Billy,we've come along way together
      A        B       G#m  
	And through it all
                     A                      B
	You've been just like a brother to me
      E          A                B               E 
	And Billy,we've had our share of ups and downs
      A            B                      G#m 
	Froze our tails sleeping on the ground
                  A                        B 
	When the jobs were few and far between


Chorus 1:
      B              E                          A
	We've been knocking around together so long
         B                     E
	Singing them same old songs
                                 A       F#m          B  
	Been out in the rain so long,i swear we're shrinking


Verse 2:
      E      A          B               E 
	Billy,lately i have done some thinking
      A         B                G#m   
	When i look back on our lives
      A                           B 
	We've sure had ourself a time
                  E A             B                E   
	But you know,it's been a wild world we traveled
      A            B            G#m 
	And it's starting to unravel
      A                                B 
	We leave so many loose ends behind


Chorus 2:
      B             E                             A
	We've been bucked off and kicked so many times
                  B                        E
	And the ground just keeps getting harder
                               A         F#m          B  
	Billy,you know well as i,we ain't getting no younger


Verse 3:
      E      A          B                E      
	Billy,another summer's come and gone
      A           B            G#m 
	Now with winter coming on
            A                         B
	I know we planned on heading south
             E   A            B               E       
	But Billy,i thought about it several days
      A            B                 G#m  
	And these words i'm about to say
      A                              B
	They don't taste good in my mouth


Chorus 3:
      B              E                          A  
	But there's someone who's waiting back home
         B                    E   
	Lord,if she'll still have me
                                 A   F#m           B 
	Guess i'll be saying so long,you go on without me


End:
      B          F#m                     B  
	Ain't no easy way of saying goodbye
               F#m                           B           C#m   
	So be sure and tell 'em all down in Texas,i said Hi
