Boomer’s Story.
Ry Cooder.
Album: Boomer's Story.

Intro: G CG Em G D Gm D G G6 D
G                          C/G 
Come and gather all around me, 
G
Listen to my tale of woe, 
Dm                      Bm   D                                     
Got some good advice to give you, 
                          D7 D6
Lots of things you oughta know, 
G                                  Am                                    
Take a tip from one who's traveled, 
    G               C/G       G
And never stopped a-rambling around, 
      C                        
Cause once you get the roaming fever, 
    G                          Em
You never want to settle down, boy, 
    D                    G
You never want to settle down.

  G                         Em                        
I met a little gal in Frisco, 
  G                      A7/C#
I asked her to be my wife, 
D6                              G                 
Told her I was tired of roaming, 
D                     
Gonna settle down for life,
    G                           C                                   
But then I heard the whistle blowing, 
G
And I knew it was the Red Ball Train, 
      C                                                       
And I left that gal beside the railroad, 
      G                        Em
And I never saw the gal again, boy, 
        D       G        Gm
I never saw the gal again. 
        C          G
Saw the gal again, never saw that gal again, 
                         Bm  Em            
Left that gal beside the railroad, 
            Am      D    G
And I never saw the gal again. 

Break: G6 D C6 D G C G Em D/E D6 G

G                           
Traveled all over the country, 
G                       Em D
I've traveled everywhere, 
D                                 Em  D                                                                                   
Been on every Branch Line railroad, 
             C6         D
Never paid a nickel for fare, 
G                                              C/G GC
Been from Maine to Califor'ny, Canada to Mexico, 
      C                                                              
And I never tried to save no money, 
    G                         Em
And now I got no place to go, boy 
D                     G  Am7
Now I got no place to go. 

G                                                   G
Listen to a Boomer's story, Pay attention to what I say, 
D            D6              D             Em7   Dm
Hear another train a-coming, Guess I'll be on my way, 
G                           G7                       
If you wanna do me a favor, when I lay me down and die 
     C                                                            
Just dig my grave beside the railroad, 
   G                            Em
So I can hear the trains go by, boys, 
   D                        G  Gm
So I can hear the trains go by. 
C                   G
Hear the trains go, I can hear the trains go by, 
Gmaj7                            Em                             
Just dig my grave beside the railroad, 
   C6             D6     G     Em G
So I can hear the trains go by.
