Walk Throught the Bottomland - Lyle Lovett

  C          F      G         C
A New Jersey lady I knew long ago
    F         Em     G7
And she was a lady I say
    C         F          G         C
But she met a cowboy who rode on a rodeo
    F            G             C
And he stole her heart straight away

    C          F        G            C
The New Jersey lady she loved him so true
  F          Em        G7
Another love she never had
    C           F            G           C
But cowboys are lonesome and cowboys are blue
    F             G         C 
And they make the ladies so sad

                F         C
Chorus:		Sing me a melody
                F         C
		Sing me a blues
                F                C          G          C
		Walk through the bottomland without no shoes
                F                C
		The Brazos she's running scared
                F             C
		She heard the news
                F                C          G          C 
		Walk through the bottomland without no shoes


    C          F         G            C
The New Jersey lady knew he loved her too
        F        Em            G7
And you know she tried to hold on
        C     F            G            C
But the rodeo life was the life that he knew 
   F           G         C
He had to keep drifting along

C         F           G         C
She never married and she never would
    F          Em            G7
And all of the people they'd say
    C          F        G             C
The New Jersey lady she just ain't no good
   F        G           C 
To follow a cowboy that way


Chorus

    F          C           G            C
The lady she'd sing him to sleep in the night
    F      Em           G
And in the morning he'd go
F             C            G         C
She loved the darkness and hated the light
D                        G
Along with that damn rodeo

    C          F        G           C
The New Jersey lady the day that he died
    F           Em        G7
She covered him over with clay
    C           F           G            C
And feeling the wind in the night as she cried
F             G          C
She heard the old cowboy say


Chorus
