This Old Skin
Beautiful South 
Album: Goldiggas
Capo 3

Intro: D-A6-G-A-D-A6-G-A6 
        
        D     Bm7                        G                        A
It was '96 in South Carolina, thatís the place and not the goddam year,
D                           A6                 G                     A A6
Sitting on the porch out at Bobbyís place just tugging on a lukewarm beer,
    G                           Em
And there I was peeping like an old sidewinder, 
        G                    Em      Bm7                         G
Just an inch or so above the mud the first to find out that itís raining,
       D                       A   A6
Is the last to find out itís a flood. 

       D               Bm7         G                           A
It was paradise valley Nevada, not far from where the west was won. 
        D                      A6                       
Iím the only black face in the whole damn place, 
       G                      A A6    G                    Em 
Just a raisiní in the blazing sun and there I am like that old sidewinder, 
G                                Em              Bm7                                
Just wishing that her eggs ainít hatched and the chain I wear, 
         G                            D                 A      A6
Has them wishing for the day, when it came with a ball attached. 
              

Chorus:
D                A6                 G   A          D A6                   G   A A6        
So Iím gonna move, right outta this town, this old skin stops weighing me down.     


Bridge;                
       G                       Em              D                            Bm7
He was sitting in the very sam spot that Otis, sat to watch the dock of the bay...                                                                                                               
       C                        Em 
In the very same spot, that the ships rolled in, 
            A
now there's nothing but the mud and the clay.  
             D   A6                 G  A
So Iím gonna move, right outta this town, 
         D A6                   G     A        D A6 G A A6
This old skin stops weighing me down, this old skin. 


D                      Bm7                       G                       A
Outside Orlando in the sunshine state, Itís just upped itself another degree,
        D                         A6                       
Iím the very last orange of the whole yearís crop, 
        G                           A A6
Hanging dearly to the branch of the tree, 
        G                            Em
And the wind and the spring couldn't do anything, 
       G                         Em          Bm7                   G
So Iím burning in the sun of the south, that old sidewinder in the dust below, 
         D                         A   A6
Iím just waiting till it opens its mouth. 

Chorus:
D                A6                 G   A          D A6                   G   A A6        
So Iím gonna move, right outta this town, this old skin stops weighing me down.     


Bridge;                
       G                       Em              D                            Bm7
He was sitting in the very sam spot that Otis, sat to watch the dock of the bay...                                                                                                               
       C                        Em 
In the very same spot, that the ships rolled in, 
            A
now there's nothing but the mud and the clay.  
             D   A6                 G  A
So Iím gonna move, right outta this town, 
         D A6                   G     A        D A6 G A A6
This old skin stops weighing me down, this old skin. 


             D   A6                 G  A
So Iím gonna move, right outta this town, 
              D   A6                    G     A6         D  
When this old skin, finally touches the ground, this old skin, 
     A6  G   A          D A6 G A7 A6 D
This old skin, this old skin,
