INTRO



D
I was sittin' in a truckstop,
G                D
Watchin' tumbleweeds roll by.

Tryin' to read the menu,
A
When the waitress caught my eye.
D                    D/F#
She pulled a pencil from her hair,
G
And leaned across the bar.
D
I did my best not to stare,
A                D    G/B
But man, she made it hard.



D
I asked that trucker next to me,
G                 D
Hey, what looks good today?

He said I know what's on your mind,
A
And boy, there ain't no way.
D                  D/F#
Get yourself some apple pie,
G
And something cool to drink.
D
I know you want the special,
A                D     D(add9)  D
And I like the way you think.



G
But you can't have the waitress,
D
Boy, everybody's tried.
A
There's a cowboy down in Abilene,
D
Who keeps her satisfied.
G
They got a hundred acre dream
D      D/F#  G
That's gettin' closer every day.
D        D/F#      G       G/B
Just a few more plates of ham and eggs,
A               D   D/F#  G
And a few good rides away.



D
Hard times hit West Texas,
G                D
Damn near everything's for sale.

But there's some things we hold sacred,
A
When everything else fails.
D                   D/F#
When we're down to nothing,
G
Out here, everybody shares.
D
Most of us have lost our dreams,
A              D      Dsus
So we bought into theirs.



D
I've seen her walk a hundred miles,
G                D
Up and down this floor.

I've never seen her fail to smile,
A
When he limps through that door.
D                         D/F#
So when you're done, you leave a tip,
G
And make it nice and fat.
D
And feel lucky you can own a piece,
A              D
Of something like that.



G
But you can't have the waitress,
D
Boy, everybody's tried.
A
There's a cowboy down in Abilene,
D
Who keeps her satisfied.
G
They got a hundred acre dream
D      D/F#  G
That's gettin' closer every day.
D        D/F#      G       G/B
Just a few more plates of ham and eggs,
A               D
And a few good rides away.

No you can't have the waitress,
