Tarpaper Sky.
Rodney Crowell.
Album: Tarpaper Sky

D                                            A
We ran off chasing rainbows, 'Neath the blue Montana sky,
            Bm7            A              D
And we self proclaimed our freedom with a roar, 
 D                                      
We crossed those raging rivers, 
       A
And we drank the taverns dry,
       Bm7                A             D
And we bowed our heads to legends, gone before.

Chorus:
        G             A            D
Are you ready for the long journey home, 
    G                     A               D
The flatlands, swamps and bayou’s in your bones,
    G                  A
The simple life tastes sweeter now, 
    D               G                     
You have no need to roam,
        D             A            D
Are you ready for the long journey home?

D                                                                    
The wind down off the Yellowstone, 
      A
Blows coal trains off their tracks,
        Bm7           A                D
And the water springs eternal from the fire,
D                                    A
An eagle flies at sunrise, 'cross an aspen grove and back,
        Bm7                A           D
And the moonlight brings a blue coyote choir.

Chorus: - Break;  G6 Bm7 D A7 A A7 Bm7 A6 D

D                                                               
In dreams of mile high cotton fields, 
   A
We once ran barefoot through,
   Bm7              A               D
My dead drunk Uncle Fireball growls these words,
                  A                  Bm7               A
"Blood don't make a family, boy, and I've got news for you,
Bm7                A                  D
Rattlesnakes don't sing like speckled birds"

Chorus:
        G             A            D
Are you ready for the long journey home, 
    G                     A               D
The flatlands, swamps and bayou’s in your bones,
    G                  A
The simple life tastes sweeter now, 
    D               G                     
You have no need to roam,
        D             A            D
Are you ready for the long journey home?
