Arizona Whiz Recorded by Cal Smith Written by Max D. Barnes and Harlan Sander
G C G The campus crowd was noisy as we waited for the show D7 Everyone had come to see the king of rock and roll G C G But when they pulled back the curtain one old man stepped out D7 G He climbed upon a stool and a hush fell upon the crowd
C G He said folks I’m sorry but the star ain’t gonna show D7 He missed the plane in Abilene and they said to let you know G C G But they’ll give back your money anytime you want to leave D7 G Then he took out his old mouth harp and he wiped it on his sleeve
C G He sang about the Mardi Gras some blues and love and war C G D7 And how nobody takes the time to care much anymore C G He played that harp like it was part of that old guitar of his D7 G And truth was just a natural thing for the Arizona Whiz
C G Then he sang a song of glory and how he’d fly away D7 Said thank you folks you sure been nice then he left the stage G C G Though they only paid him 20 bucks that night the world was his D7 G Cause not a soul walked out the door on the Arizona Whiz
C G He was old and he was wrinkled he was bent and he was broke C G D7 In a pair of faded blue jeans with a scarf around his throat C G And he could sing a hurtin’ song like the memory was his D7 G You could almost see the scars on the Arizona Whiz
C G Folks I’d like to say this song’s for you but to tell it like it is D7 G If you don’t mind this one’s for the Arizona Whiz
