Always On My Mind
-----------------
by Willie Nelson

I:
D A
Maybe I didn't love you
Bm D G A
Quite as often as I could have
D A
And maybe I didn't treat you
Bm D Em7
Quite as good as I should have

II:
G D
If I made you feel second best
G D Em
Girl, I'm sorry I was blind
A Bm A7 D Em F#m
But you were always on my mind
G A7 D G A
You were always on my mind

(same progression as I)
Maybe I didn't hold you
All those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you
I'm so happy that you're mine

(same progression as II)
Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

D A Bm D
Tell me
G D Em G A7
Tell me that your sweet love hasn't died
D A Bm
Give me
D G D Em
Give me one more chance to keep you satisfied
A D
I'll keep you satisfied



Angle Flying too Close


A(5) C#m(4)
If you had not have fallen
D(2) A
then I would not have found you
D E A
Angel flying too close to the ground
A(5) C#m(4) D(2) A(5)
I patched up your broken wing and hung around for a while
B(7) E
trying to keep your spirits up and your fever down
A(5) C#m(4) D(2) D#dim
So leave me if you need to, I will still remember
A E A
Angel flying too close to the ground.

A(5) C#m(4) D(2)
I knew someday that you would fly away
B7 E
for loveUs the greatest healer to be found
A(5) C#m(4) D(2) D#dim
So leave me if you need to, I will still remember
A E A
Angel flying too close to the ground

A(5) C#m(4) D(2)
Fly on fly on past, the speed of sound
B7 E
IUd rather see you up than see you down
A(5) C#m(4) D(2) D#dim
So leave me if you need to, I will still remember
A E D A
Angel flying too close to the ground.





WILLIE NELSON: BLUE EYES CRYING IN THE RAIN (by Fred Rose)

D / /
In the twilight glow, I see
A / /D / /
Blue eyes cryin' in the Rain/ /
/ / /
When we kissed goodbye and parted
/A / /D / /
I/ knew we'd never meet a-gain

VERSE 1:
G / / / /
Love is like a dying ember;
D / /A /
Only memories re- main.
D / / / /
And/ thru the ages I'll re-member
A / /D B/ D
Blue eyes cryin' in the rain.

VERSE 2:
G / / / /
Someday when we meet up yonder,
D / / /
We'll stroll hand in hand a- gain.
D / / / /
And/ in a land that knows no parting,
A / /D B/ D
Blue eyes crying in the rain.

Pancho and Lefty
(Townes Van Zandt)

D
Livin' on the road, my friend
A
Was gonna keep us free and clean
G
But now you wear your skin like iron
D A
And your breath's as hard as kerosene
G
You weren't your mama's only boy
D G
But her favorite one, it seems
Bm
She began to cry
G A
When you said good bye
G Bm
And sank into your dreams

Pancho was a bandit, boys
Rode a horse fast as polished steel
Wore his guns outside his pants
For all the honest world to feel
Pancho met his match, you know
On the deserts down in Mexico
No one heard his dyin' words
But that's the way it goes

G
And all the federales say
D G
They could have had him any day
Bm G A
They only let him slip away
G Bm
Out of kindness, I suppose

Now Lefty he can't sing the blues
All night long like he used to
The dust that Pancho bit down South
It ended up in Lefty's mouth
The day they laid old Pancho low
Lefty split for Ohio
Where he got the bread to go
Well there ain't nobody 'knows

But all the federales say
They could have had him any day
They only let him slip away
Out of kindness, I suppose

Now poets sing how Pancho fell
Lefty's livin' in a cheap hotel
The desert's quiet and Cleveland's cold
And so the story ends, we're told
Pancho needs your prayers, it's true
But save a few for Lefty, too
He only did what he had to do
And now he's growin' old

And all the federales say
They could have had him any day
They only let him go so long
Out of kindness, I suppose

Yes a few old gray federales still say
They could have had him any day
They only let him go so wrong
Out of kindness, I suppose

You are My Sunshine (Willie Nelson)

(A)The other night dear as I lay sleeping,
I dreamed I (D)held you in my (A)arms,
When I a(D)woke dear I was mis(A)taken
And I hung my (E)head and I (A)cried,

Chorus:
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine,
You make me (D)happy when skies are (A)gray,
Youíll never (D)know dear, how much I (A)love you,
Please donít take my (E)sunshine (A)away,

Iíll always love you and make you happy,
If you will (D)only say the (A)same,
But if you (D)leave me to love an(A)other,
You will regret it (E)all some (A)day,

Repeat Chorus

You told me once dear, you really loved me,
and no one (D)else could come be(A)tween,
but now youíve (D)left me and love an(A)other,
you have shattered (E)all my (A)dreams,
