Navajo Rug

Capo on 2nd fret
	  		() 
 
G 
Well it's three eggs up on whiskey toast 
Am 
Homefries on the side 
C 
Wash it down with truckstop coffee 
D   
Burns up your inside 
       G 
Just a Canyon, Colorado diner 
      Am 
And a waitress I did love 
   C 
We sat in the back  'neath an old stuffed bear 
      D 
And a worn out Navajo rug 
 
         G 
Well old Jack the boss he'd close at six 
          Am 
Then it's Katie bar the door 
C 
She'd pull down that Navajo rug 
          D 
And she'd spread it 'cross the floor 
           G 
Hey I saw lightning in the sacred mountains 
        Am                
Saw the dance of the turtle doves 
C 
Lyin' next to Katie 
   D 
On that old Navajo rug 
 
 
Chorus: 
 
G         Em     C                 D 
Ai-yi-yi, Katie, shades of red and blue 
      G   Em 
Ai-yi-yi, Katie 
C                                     G    Em   C   D 
Whatever became of the Navajo rug and you? 
 
 
       G 
Well I saw old Jack about a year ago 
            Am 
He said the place burned to the ground 
    C 
And all he saved was an old bear tooth 
    D 
And Katie she left town 
    G 
But Katie she got her a souvenir too 
     Am 
Jack spat out a tabacco plug 
             C 
He said "You shoulda seen her runnin' through the smoke 
D 
Draggin' that Navajo rug." 
 
 
Repeat Chorus 
 
    G 
Now everytime I cross the sacred mountains  
    Am 
And lightning breaks above 
   C 
It always takes me back in time 
      D 
To my long lost Katie love 
       G 
Ah but everything keeps on movin' 
    Am 
And everyone's on the go 
     C 
They don't make things that last anymore 
       D 
Like a double-woven Navajo 
 
 
Repeat Chorus 
 
Em     C                 D 
Katie, shades of red and blue 
      G   Em 
Ay-yi-yi, Katie 
C                                     G    Em  C   D  G 
Whatever became of the Navajo rug and you? 
 
 
Taken from the album:  A Poor Man?s Dream(1990)
