Jeff Davis County Blues

Tab by dan – dtrom4 at aol dot com
Comments / corrections welcome.

The riff follows something like the one below.  Throw it (or some variation) in where appropriate.  
Because I’m feeling thorough, here it is with barre or open chords.
 
e|-----3---------------------------3------------------------|
B|-----3---------------------------0--1-p0------------------|
G|-----5---5-p4--------------------0--------0---------------|
D|-----5---------5-----------------0-----------0------------|
A|-----4-----------5---------------2------------------------|
E|-----3---------------------------3------------------------|

(I actually play it with the old capo on three, so if you’re math inclined, you could subtract 3 from that first riff.  
For beginners keeping score at home, capo three gives you E A for the main bit, and then throw in Am and B)

Enough ranting.  Enjoy!

G Am7

G
after three nights in jail, i head north from toyahvale.
Am7
switch to 285 in pecos, head up to red bluff.
G
my walk's real steady and my eyes are real cold
but i feel like i'm all of sixteen years old --
Am7							      G
lost in the travel lodge, with the television on with the sound down,
i don't feel so tough.
C            D		      G
old issues of sunset magazine to read,
                    C  D		   G
sleep for twelve hours, and dream about home.

i have no place to go, so i drive up to new mexico.
fix my eyes in the rearview when i cross the state line.
and i panic, i guess. and although it's quite late,
i take the first exit to 128. 
i am coming back to midland.
i hope you won't mind.
polaroids of the two of us scattered on the passenger's seat.
i drive slowly
and evenly
and i dream about home.
