Capo 2

     D                G
Does anyone know of a girl who might like 
  A                  D 
A tired old boy on a rusty old bike
         D                        G
Who just pulled in today from the Florida Glades 
    A                                    D           G A
And just got to stop and rest awhile and rest awhile

Does anyone know of someone who can use
A hard working fool who don't ever touch booze
Who's only vice is a roll of a dice
And he's just got to stop and rest awhile and rest awhile


Chorus:
G                 D 
Easy there lady I don't want no trouble 
     A                    D 
I'll pay for my chili and leave
G                 D 
Easy there mister I got the money 
    E7                            A 
and if I was you I'd let go of my sleeve


Does anyone know of a place I can sleep
Where I won't hear the cry of the wind as she weeps
For a poor wandering soul who got no place to go
And just got to stop and rest awhile and rest awhile


Chorus 2:
No fellers, you can't have a ride 
Cause my bike and my girls I don't share
Hey sheriff thank you for stoppin' 
And being concerned bout the length of my hair

Can anyone lend me a half tank of gas
And I guess that a smile would be too much to ask
Cause your warm friendly town don't want my kind around
And I guess I can't stop and rest awhile and rest awhile

Chorus 3:
Hello mama your boys comin' home 
Cause my bike and my dreams all got wrecked
No, mama don't hang up the phone 
I'm sorry that I had to call you collect

Can anyone lend me a half tank of gas
I guess that a smile would be too much to ask
Your warm friendly town don't want my kind around
I guess I can't stop and rest awhile and rest awhile
