Casey's Last Ride Written and recorded by Kris Kristofferson
Am G7 Casey joins the hollow sound of silent people walking down F Em The stairway to the subway and the shadows down below Am G7 Following the footsteps through the neon darkened corridors F Em Of silent desperation never speaking to a soul
F Am The poison air he's breathing has a dirty smell of dying Dm Em Cause it's never seen the sunshine and it's never felt the rain Am G7 Casey minds the arrows and ignores the fatal echoes F Em Am Of the clicking of the turnstile and the rattle of the chains
C G7 Oh she said Casey it's been so long since I've seen you C Here she said just a kiss to make a body smile G7 See she said I've put on new stockings just to please you C Lord she said Casey can you only stay a while
Am G7 Casey leaves the underground and stops inside the Golden Crown F Em For something wet to wipe away the chill that's in his bones Am G7 Seeing his reflection in the lives of all the lonely men F Em Who reach for anything they can to keep from going home
F Am Standing in the corner Casey drinks his pint of bitter Dm Em Never glancing in the mirror at the people passing by Am G7 Then he stumbles as he's leaving and he wonders if the reason is F Em Am The beer that's in his belly or the tear that's in his eye
C G7 Oh she said I suppose that you seldom think about me C Now she said now that you've a family of your own G7 Still she said it's so blessed and good to feel your body C Lord she said Casey it's a shame to be alone
