Forty Acres Recorded by Boxcar Willie Written by Earl Green
C D7 He was headin' into Beantown in a big long diesel truck G7 C It was his first trip to Boston he was having all bad luck D7 He was going the wrong direction down a one-way street in town G7 C And this is what he said when the police chased him down
D7 Give me forty acres and I'll turn this rig around G7 C Give me forty acres it's the easiest way I've found D7 Some guys can turn it on a dime or turn it right downtown G7 C But I need forty acres to turn this rig around
D7 When he finally found where to unload he had a dreadful shock G7 C His trailer pointed toward the road and his cab right to the dock D7 And as he looked around him through the tears he made this sound G7 C Well give me forty acres and I'll turn this rig around
D7 When he finally got unloaded he was glad to leave the town G7 C He was very very happy goin' back to Alabam' D7 When up ahead he saw a sign that said you're northward bound G7 C He said give me forty acres and I'll turn this rig around
D7 He was driving down the right lane when ahead he saw a sign G7 C He had to make a left turn but could not get in line D7 Now the tears came streaming down his cheeks and everybody heard him yell G7 C Give me forty sticks of dynamite and I'll blow this thing to ...
D7 Yeah give me forty acres and I'll turn this rig around G7 C Give me forty acres it's the easiest way I've found D7 Now if you can turn it on a dime or turn it way downtown G7 C But I need forty acres to turn this rig around
D7 Yeah it takes me forty acres to turn this thing around G7 Better make that fifty acres C D7 G7 Well maybe I can turn when I get to Kansas better make that Texas C Heck with it I’ll back all the way to Birmingham D7 G7 C Cleveland how'd I get to Cleveland
