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

Repeat #2

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

Repeat #2

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 ...

Repeat #2

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
