The Passenger

	  G                                    Em 
It was dark and I was driving down a lonely Texas road 
    C                 D                  Em 
the night was hot and sleep pulled at my eyes 
      G                         Em 
I was thinking bout the wild times and the women that I'd had 
      C                  D              Em 
The deceitful things I'd done and those lies 
     G                              D 
When standin' in the shadows at the side of the road 
          C                        Em 
Stood the figure of a withered old man 
   G                      D 
He wore a black bandana a ropin' stetson hat 
       C                    Em 
With a two inch scarlet hat band 
   G                              Em 
He held his wrinkled hand up as a sign to shut 'er down 
     C               D              Em 
So I pulled over and stopped at his side 
   G                       Em 
He opened up the door slid in and sat down 
         C  D              Em 
and said my ain't it hot tonight 
  G                           D 
I studied this old man and it seemed mighty strange 
    C                       Em 
for him to be out here all alone 
    G                              D 
and then he started talking and he told me many things 
   C                         Em 
of times that both of us had known 
   G                                Em 
He told me of the wild life and the women that he'd known 
    C                D            Em 
How none of them had ever meant a thing 
   G                        Em 
He told me of a black night much the same as this 
       C           D                   Em 
of the strange and awesome things he'd seen 
G                                  D 
A man beside the road had raised his hand 
                           C                   Em 
and flagged him down So he stopped and let him in 
     G                              D 
That stranger told him stories that I am hearing now 
         C                      Em 
Bout the wild times and all the sin 
        G                               Em 
And the car got cold and clamy and this old man looked at me 
        C        D             Em 
He said boy I've come here for you 
     G                           Em 
Your days of wicked sinnin' have come to an end 
     C              D             Em 
As a mortal on this earth you are through 
         G                            D 
Then his eyes got red and firey as he took his stetson off 
     C                              Em 
To reveal his evil horns shiney and black 
   G                             D 
My god the fear came o'er and my senses were all lost 
  C                                Em 
I fought with him until we finally crashed 
     G                             Em 
Next day they found the car at the bottom of the draw 
          C          D                Em 
The young cowboy was found beside the wreck 
The car had been consumed by fire 
but the cowboy had no marks 
           C                 D              Em 
Except the smokin' pitchfork brand upon his neck
