Odysseus

  		 

         C 
I'm gonna tell you this story that I once read 
           F 
About this cowboy who was a little messed up in the head 
    D7                                          G 
For starters he went by this weirdo name of Odysseus 
    C  
Now Odysseus weren't no cowboy name 
       F 
But he sure could play that cowboy game 
             D7                                             G 
An' he could rope and ride and he could throw a real mean discus 

            C 
Well he was headed home from some far-off land 
     F 
Like Mississippi or Texarkana 
       D7                                  G 
He was tryin' to get to Ithaca in New York State 
         C 
Met this dude named Poseidon that almost drowned him 
         F 
But this chick named Ino came along and found him 
D7                                      G 
I... I didn't really get that part anyway 

        C 
Well he met this girl named Circe, you know 
            F 
She was all hot and bothered and ready to go 
      D7                                   G 
She invited all of his friends on over for supper 
           C 
Turned his buddies into pigs and that's a fact 
      F stop 
So he made love to her and she turned 'em back 
     D7               G                   C 
I guess he was pretty good in the sack or somethin' 

Chorus 

SOLO 

F   C            G               C 
   Odysseus, why did you have to go? 
F   C            G    G/A     G/A#    G/B 
   Odysseus, whatever did you know? 
 E                  Am          F 
Odysseus was hard, Odysseus was fast 
C                 G                C 
That cowboy could really kick some ass 

        C  
Well he wasn't really sure which way to head 
          F 
So for directions he went to the kingdom of the dead 
D7                                           G 
I ain't sure were that is but it sounds like Florida 
    C  
His mama lived there and she said hi 
        F 
He said no mama, I'm here to see this other guy 
       D7                                           G 
She said well, you're a real find son, then, aren't you? 

           C  
Finally he found this guy that knew the way 
        F 
He said, "Now listen close to what I gotta say 
       D7                                             G 
It's a long hard ride and you probably never even get there 
              C 
And all these friends of yours, they're all a-gonna die 
    F 
And all you're gonna wanna do is sit and cry?" 
        D7                          G                   C 
And Odysseus said, "Now, hold up, dude... I make a left where?" 


REPEAT Chorus 

SOLO 

      C 
So he packed his bags and he saddled up 
           F 
And he was headed out of town past his little club 
         D7                                         G 
And from inside he heard this chick band called The Sirens 
        C 
Well he wanted to stay and hear a few 
        F 
But his buddies said, "No, man, we gotta move" 
              D7                                        G 
So he threw this big old tantrum then he got on back to ridin' 

        C 
When he got home all of these men were there 
F 
Eatin' all the food from his Frigidaire 
   D7                                         G 
And not just two or three, but like forty-somethin' 
         C 
They was hittin' on his wife and makin' a scene 
      F 
So he killed them all and got away clean 
     D7                                     G 
Didn't even have to do community service or nothin' 

    C 
His wife said, "I been so faithful babe?" 
       F             D7            G 
And he said, "Uh...,     uh..., me too 
                C 
Except for that girl in that cave and a couple more 
         F 
And that beautiful woman on that island shore 
   D7                    G              C 
Anyways, baby, I been so thankful in my heart" 

REPEAT Chorus 

C                 G                C 
That cowboy could really kick some ass
