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
