127 Rose Avenue
by Hank Williams Jr.
127 Rose Avenue

Ab minor (please feel free to correct or transpose)

Abm
Somewhere in the middle of the Deep South

Eb7
Magnolias sway in the breeze

Abm
To the lonesome sound of a redbone hound
Eb7
Howlin' at the moon in the trees

Abm 	  	  	 Dbm
There's a sad boy with his guitar

 	  	  	 Abm
Cuttin' his teeth on the blues

Abm 	  	 
Wishin' on a fallin' star

Eb7 	  	 Abm
at 127 Rose Avenue

VERSE 2

Abm
Distant moan of a midnight train comes

Eb7
Blowin' through the night

Abm
He dips his pen in tears and pain

Eb7
And he begins to write

Abm
'bout a whippoorwill too blue to fly

Dbm 	  	  	 Abm
and the Indian he once knew
abm
'bout lost highways and purple skies

Eb7              Abm
at 127 Rose Avenue

CHORUS:
Dbm 	  	  	 Eb7
Caretaker said as he shook his head

Dbm 	  	  	 Eb7
Son, do you believe in ghosts

Dbm 	  	  	 
For a five dollar bill you can feel the chill

Eb7
He felt long ago

VERSE 3

Abm
So I bought me a ticket at the front door

Eb7
Guess who was there inside

Abm
I felt his presence through the whole tour

Eb7
God I swear, he was alive

Abm
I saw the train, I felt the pain

Eb7
I heard him moanin' the blues

Abm
29 years of memories

Dbm 	          Eb7
at 127 Rose Avenue

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

CHORUS

VERSE 4

Abm
Another sad-eyed boy with his guitar

Eb7
Cuttin' his teeth on the blues

Abm
Here I am wishin' on a fallin' star

Eb7 	     Abm
At 127 Rose Avenue

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

It ain't in Nashville

It's not in Montgomery
