The Ballad of Bull Ramos

Capo 2

Note: I play the non-chorus G's as G6. The 'riff' at the end of each chorus 
is just the top two strings of the D chord fingerpicked. -Staals

A G Bm Dm7

A G Bm Dm7
Drive a great big truck
A G Bm Dm7
When I'm old, when I'm old
A G Bm Dm7
Haul the wrecks down to the wreck yard
C                E
Help the boys unload

A G Bm Dm7
Keep my hair nice and long
A G Bm Dm7
Because I can, because I can
A G Bm Dm7
Any of my old friends who have no place to turn to
A G Bm Dm7
They know to call me, any time they come through

Bm D
Never die, never die   
Stand with a bullwhip in my hand
A             G
And rise, and rise
D
In the desert sand

A G Bm Dm7

Work days, work nights
Finally get laid off
By a piece of broken glass 
C                     E
On the floor of the shop

C#m A
And the doctor recognizes me
C#m A
As the operating theater goes dim
C#m A
Aren't you that old wrestler with the bullwhip?
D                       E
Yes sir, that's me, I'm him

A G Bm Dm7

Get around fine on one leg
Lose a kidney, then go blind
Sit on my porch in Houston
A G Bm Dm7
Let the good times dance across my mind

Never die, never die                        
Stand with a bullwhip in my hand
And rise, and rise
Surrounded by friends

A G Bm Dm7
