Three Quarter Time

  		This song is on Ray Charles' country album "Wish You were Here Tonight" 
circa 1982 or 1983.  I picked it up around 1984.  It's really a good country  
song -- try to check it out. 
 
I worked this song out off the record, so it's all my own work and may not  
be perfectly accurate, but it works for me.  Hope it does for you, too.

Verse 1: 
D                                           A 
I like enchilados and old El Dorados that shine 
                                                  D 
And old friend the guitar and songs and women and wine 
                                               G 
They say that I'm livin to fast but I'm feelin fine (yeah)   
A                                  D 
And I just keep easin along in 3/4 time     
D                                                     A 
Sometimes I get sideways and stay up all night writin songs   
                                                  D 
They say it ain't healthy but somehow I keep goin on (I do)   
                                                           G 
I write what I feel and don't care if the damn thing don't rhyme (no)   
     A                                  D 
Just gimme a C chord and play it in 3/4 time (got it)       
 
 
Chorus: 
       G                                             D 
It's a big old world and we all have to live out our lives   
    E                                                A 
And one thing's for sure ain't none of gonna get out alive(uhuh,sorry) 
 
 
Verse 2: 
D                                               A 
So while I'm still kickin I'm gonna keep pickin my tunes   
                                                 D 
I like what I'm doin and I hope it don't end too soon     
                                                      G 
Cause all a my life there's one thing I keep hopin to find (yes)     
A                                     D 
A woman who likes to make love in 3/4 time (be nice ya know)     
 
 
Chorus: 
       G                                             D 
It's a big old world and we all have to live out our lives   
    E                                                A 
And one thing's for sure ain't none of gonna get out alive(uhuh,sorry)
