WEST TEXAS HIGHWAY
By: Michael Martin Murphy and Boomer Castleman
Recorded by: Lyle Lovett
Album: Step Inside this House

F
Now I was driving down
F
A West Texas highway
Gm
I saw a hitchhiker
            G#m7
And his thumb was pointing my way
F
He didn't look suspicious
Gm                                    C
And he didn't look any too clean
F
I put on my brakes
           F
And I opened my door
           Gm
I could tell he was a bum
                      G#m7
By the muddy boots he wore
                   F
He said I'm going down to Haskell
C                                 F
Got a woman down in Abilene.
             F
He said son East Texas
                         F
Is where I come from
          Gm
I was working a rodeo out there
          G#m7
And it sure got humdrum
                  F
So I'm just travelling around
    Gm                              C
A whole lot of Texas I've seen

F
I'm mighty glad
F
You were going my way
Gm
In your brand new clothes there
                        G#m7
And your great big Chevrolet
F
I'm going down to Haskell
          C                      F
Got a woman back in Abilene.
F
Well he was grinning like a possum
F
And a mighty happy rascal
       Gm
And he waved good-bye
            G#m7
When I let him out in Haskell
F
And that's about the last 
                 Gm
Of that old road tramp
                G#m7
I ever did see
F
But I'm still wishing
F
To this very day
        Gm
That he had my clothes
             G#m7
And my big Chevrolet
                 F
And it was me going to Haskell
           C                       F
With a woman down in Abilene.
