Ft. Worth Blues written by  Steve Earle
In tribute to Townes Van Zandt

C                     F              C
In Fort Worth all the neon's shinin bright
       G7             C
Pretty lights red and blue
C                       F *         C
They'd shut down all the honky tonks tonight
                G7               C
Say a prayer or two if they only knew
C                   F *              C
You used to say the highway was your home
            G7              C
But we both know that ain't true
It's just the only place a man can go
When he don't know where he's traveling' to
F                G                C
But Colorado's always clean and healing
F            G                   C
Tennessee in Spring is green and cool
C               F *              C
It never really was your kind of town
            G7                          C
So you went around with the Forth Worth Blues

Somewhere out across the great divide
Where the sky is wide and the clouds are few
A man can see his way clear to the light
Just hold on tight that's all you gotta do

And they say Texas weather's always changin'
And one thing change'll bring is somethin' new
And Houston really ain't too bad a town
So you hung around with the Ft. Worth Blues        SOLO

There's a full moon over Galway Bay tonight
Silver light over green and blue
And every place I travel to find
Some kind of a sign that you've been through

But Amsterdam was always good for grieving
And London never fails to leave me blue
Paris really ain't my kind of town
So I walked around with the Ft. Worth Blues
