Waitin' On Joe - Steve Azar
Album: Waitin' On Joe
Written by: Steve Azar

I tried to write the chords as close as possible over the lyric
but listen to the CD for sure timing.

For this progression-->  A E F#m E D  just strum once on each chord.

***Capo 2 for the recorded key***

Intro: A E F#m E D  E

D        E                     A           E F#m E
And for Joe and me, it's some pretty good pay
          D           E      F#m        E       D
Now I was countin' on him, to be at the dock by ten
Bm
A week's pay says he's still at home
          D                    E

I told him over and over now don't you be late
       Bm     E
Oh but like always
D                   E
I'm just sittin' on go

And waitin' on Jo--------e

A E F#m E D


Verse 2:
D              E                      A E F#m E D
Tow boats are leaving cause it don't care

What's not on board and who's not there
D                 E              F#m     E        D
Once that whistle blows, down the mighty river it rolls
Bm
Man if I could be more like that
       D                    E
I'd get on with my life and never look back, instead of


CHORUS

Bridge:
D                   F#m
And he's in a hurry, cause he's runnin behind
   E                C#                  D        E
Now I'm not one to worry but I've got a real bad feeling this time

Oh   oh   oo------ooh
