**************** GRAPES ON THE VINE ****************
written by Steve Gillette and Charles John Quarto
performed by Waylon Jennings.


1st PART:

Verse 1:
    C/G 
	There are songs that birds don't sing to people
	           F
	There are secrets that keep right through to the end
	           G
	There are heroes who hide until forever
	                                     C/G
	And i'm singing this song for one of them


Verse 2:
    C/G
	He's the man that you passed on the road there
      F	 
	The one with his life on the loose
	 G
	Going either somewhere or nowhere
	                         C/G	
	Going without me,without you


Chorus:
    C/G
	For he is this world's constant orphan
      F 	
	Traveling out his lone time
	 G
	Living on apples from orchards
                                  C/G  
	Dying from grapes on the vine


2nd PART:

Verse 3:
    C/G          Am                   F 
	You can find him in big city winters
	 C/G                          G
	Down where the mission bell cries
	     Am                    F
	And sorrow echoes through summer
	        G                    C/G
	As he tries to close all his eyes


Verse 4:
   C/G           Am                          F
	You can find him in Pittsburgh in Christmas
	         C/G                    G
	You can find him in Buffalo in June
	        Am                         F  
	And he knows all the backroads between them
      G                           C/G
	Like the gypsy knows the moon


Verse 5:
                Am       F  
	And it's route 22 all over again
                     G                            C/G   
	Stick your thumb out and try to look like somebody's friend
                Am              F
	Look strong at the man,gentle at the girl
             G                          C/G
	And puzzled at the rest of the world


Chorus.

         G
	Living on apples from orchards
                                  C/G 
	Dying from grapes on the vine
