I'd play the Red River Valley, and he'd sit in his kitchen and cry 
       G          G/F#                Em               D          Bm    
And run his fingers through 70 years of livin' 
       G          G/F#       Em                                A 
And wonder Lord, has every well I drilled run dry. 
A                                     A/C#     D        
We were friends me and this old man 
CHORUS     Bm                                       G                       
LIKE DESPERADOS WAITING FOR A TRAIN  (repeat)   Em 
 
He's a drifter and a driller of oil wells  
And an old school man of this world 
He taught me how to drive his car when he's too drunk to 
And he'd wink and give me money for the girls 
And our lives was like some old western movie     (CHORUS) 
 
>From the time that I could walk he'd take me with him 
To a bar called the Green Frog CafŽ 
And there was old men with beer guts and dominoes 
Lyin' 'bout their lives while they'd play 
And I was just a kid they all called his sidekick   (CHORUS) 
 
One day I looked up and he's pushin' 80 
And there's brown tobacco stains all down his chin 
To me he's one of the heroes of this country 
So why's he all dressed up like them old men 
Drinkin' beer and playin' Moon & 42    (CHORUS) 
 
The day before he died I went to see him 
I was grown and he was almost gone 
So we just closed our eyes and dreamed us up a kitchen 
And sang another verse to that old song 
Come on Jack, that son of a bitch is coming   (CHORUS
