These chords are old but we shake hands 
'Cause I believe that they're the good guys 
We can use all the help we can 
So many minor chords outside 
I fell in love with the sound 
Oh I love to sing along with you 
We got tunes we kicked around some
We got a bucket that the tunes go through 

Babe we both had dry spells 
Hard times in bad lands 
I'm a good man for ya 
I'm a good man 

Last night there was a horse in the road 
I was twisting in the hairpin 
My hands held on my mind let go 
And back to you my heart went skipping 
I found the inside of the road 
Thought about the first time that I met you 
All those glances that we stole 
Sometimes if you want them then you've got to 

Babe we both had dry spells 
Hard times in bad lands 
I' a good man for ya 
I' a good man 

They shot a Western south of here 
They had him cornered in a canyon 
And even his horse had disappeared 
They said it got run down by a bad, bad man 
You're not a good shot but I'm worse 
And there's so much where we ain't been yet 
So swing up on this little horse 
The only thing we'll hit is sunset 

Babe we both had dry spells 
Hard times in bad lands 
I'm a good man for ya 
I'm a good man
