I was talking to a swaggy yesterday
    G5                                  D5
His beard was long his hair was silver grey
    A5                             D5                
His dress was out of style but he wore a friendly smile
    B5               A5              D5
And here is what the old man had to say

         D5             A5          D5
?You may think me most unusual my boy
       G5                                 D5
When I tell you straight that I am stony broke
  A5                                D5
I tramp from year to year and I?ll drink all kinds of beer
      B5                A5             D5
But I like to have good 'baccy when I smoke"

         D5                  A5            D5
Now I?ll show you this here old terbacco tin
    G5                                  D5
The paint is gone the sides are dinted in
         A5                           D5      
But it?s opened many a bottle in its wild and chequered life
       B5        A5             D5
And to me it has always been a friend

I one time had a wife and everything
      A5                               D5
But a stranger came and soon we were apart
     A5                              D5
So I left my friends and home and I hit the road to roam
    B5           A5             D5
But nicotine has mended my old heart

     D5              A5           D5
I?ve got no use for money in my life
    G5                                    D5
You strive and struggle till it gets you down
  A5                               D5
I tramp until I lag and then I?ll drop my swag
         B5                A5                  D5
And I?ll sit and smoke and watch the world go 'round

     D5         A5                D5 
When finally I reach the golden gates
     G5                          D5
They say St Peter he?s a decent bloke
       A5                                D5
If I?m taken with the blessed this will be my last request
  B5             A5               D5
I must have good terbaccy when I smoke

          D5               A5            D5 
Yes I was talking to that swaggy yesterday
    G5                             D5
And what he told me I?ll remember clear
A5                                               D5
Trampin? out there with the breeze happy as the birds and bees
      B5             A5              D5 
And I reckon that he has the right idea.
