Throwing Horseshoes At The Moon

	  		
Intro: 
| (G) | (G/F#) | (F7) | (E7) | (E7) 

Verse 
   G            G/F#              F7                E7 
My father was a gambler, he threw horseshoes at the moon 
   C     G                    Em/F#           C 
He won a million dollars, and lost a million, too 
                                G                 C 
They repossessed the house, and towed that Cadil- lac 
   Am             E                     F               F# 
My daddy, he just smiled and said, "One day I'll win it back" 

   G                 G/F#           F7            E7 
My daddy bought that Cadillac off a Detroit motor line 
        C                    G             Em/F#            C 
Then he drove it through his home town, to prove he hit his prime 
                                G                 C 
With hundred dollars bills in a Saint Chris money clip 
    Am                 E                 F               F#   D 
And four kids starrin' proudly from that big ole sinkin' ship 
                           Em 
Throwin' horseshoes at the moon 

tabchorus
C G Boys, it's mighty risky odds C G F# E Some- times ya hook the milky way or the outstretched hands of God C G C But mostly they just fall into a dark and dusty hole Am E F F# D And the sound of fallin' horse shoes pulls upon your soul Em Throwin' horse shoes at the moon
