INTRO: D G A D
D
He was standing by the highway
D
with a sign that just said mother
D
when he heard a driver coming
E A
about a half a mile away
D
so he held the sign up higher
D
so no decent soul could miss it
D
it was ten degrees or colder
A D
down by boulder dam that day
D
he was raised up in milwaukee
D
though he never was that famous
D
he was just a road musician
E A
to the taverns he would go
D
singing songs about the rambling
D
the loving girls and gambling
D
how the world fell on his shoulder
A D
back in boulder I don't know
D
it was out in arizona
D
and he heard the lady listening
D
to each word that he was singing
E A
to each line that he would write
D
so he sat down by her table
D
and they talked about the weather
D
98.6 and rising
A D
down by boulder dam that night
G D
and she told him she would take him
A C G
for a ride in the morning sun
G A
back in boulder he had told her
A C G
I don't know when I've had a better friend
D
now he's traded off his martin
D
but his troubles are not over
D
his feet are almost frozen
E A
and the sun is sinking low
D
won't you listen to me brother
D
if you loved your mother
D
please pull off on the shoulder
A D
if you're going milwaukee way
D
it's ten degrees and getting colder
A D
down by boulder dam today
One of these days I'll get around to tabbing the intro.
