Amarillo recorded By Emmylou Harris written by Rodney Crowell and Emmylou Harris
G My baby never was a cheating kind D7 But It wasn't cause the ladies didn't try
Now every where we go they're walking round him slow G Giving him a flutter and a sigh
Now I got him past that redhead in Atlanta G7 C Lord I walked all over that Blackeyed Cajun queen D7 But outside of Amarillo he found his thrill I tell you G I lost him to a jukebox and a pinball machine
C G Oh Amarillo what'd you want my baby for C A7 D7 Oh Amarillo now he won't come home no more C G You done played a trick on me hooked him in the first degree D7 Put in another quarter first Dolly and then Porter
G While he racks up fifty thousand on the pinball machine
If you only hadn't stopped in Clearwater D7 If someone hadn't played the window up above
Oh he'd still be mine today but he heard those fiddles play G One look and then I knew this must be love
Oh that pinball machines in the corner C But he saw the lights and he had to hear 'em ring D7 And he never was the same after he won his first free game G oh I lost him to the jukebox and a pinball machine
