F7
Now I was a`driving down

A West Texas highway
Bb7
I seen a hitchhiker
E7
His thumb was pointin my way
F7
He didn't look suspicious
D G7 C7
He didn't look any too clean
F7
So I, I put on my brakes

And I opened up the door
Bb7
I could tell he was a bum
E7
By the boots he wore
F7 D
He said I'm going down to Haskell
G7 C7 F7 Bb7 F7 C7
Got a woman back in Abilene.
F7
He told me son East Texas

Is where I come from
Bb7
I been ridin' that Jacksonville Rodeo
E7
And I got humdrum
F7
I'm travelling around
D G7 C7
A whole lot of Texas I've seen

F7
Yes and I'm, I'm mighty glad

You was pushin' down my way
Bb7
In your fancy clothes
E7
And this shiny Chevrolet
F7 D
Said I'm going down to Haskell
G7 C7 F7 Bb7 C7
Got a woman back in Abilene.

--- Dobro / Piano leads

F7
You know he was grinning like a possum

And a mighty happy rascal
Bb7
He waved good-bye
E7
When I let him out in Haskell
F7
And that's about the last
D
Of that road tramp
G7 C7
That I've ever seen
F7
But you know that I'm still wishing

To this very day
Bb7
That he had my clothes
E7
And this shiny Chevrolet
F7 D
And it was me going to Haskell
G7 C7 F7 Bb7 F7
With a woman down in Abilene.

F7
But you know that I'm still wishing

To this very day
Bb7
That he had my clothes
E7
And this shiny Chevrolet
F7 D
And it was me going to Haskell
G7 C7 F7 Bb7 F7/E7-F7 (slide up)
With a woman down in Abilene.
