Philadelphia Lawyer
by Merle Haggard written by Woody Guthrie  [3/4 time]
 
C               G7
Way out in Reno Neva-da
                         C
Where romance blooms and fades
                     F
A great Philadelphia lawyer
       G7                    C
Was in love with a Hollywood maid
 
                      G7
Come love and we will wander
                         C
Out where the lights are bright
                                 F
I'll win you a divorce from your husband
       G7              C
And we can get married tonight
 
                          G7
Now Bill was a gun-toting cowboy
                               C
Ten notches were carved on his gun
                    F
All the boys around Reno
     G7                 C
Left wild Bill's maiden alone
 
                      G7
One night when he was returning
                             C
From riding the range in the cold
                            F
He dreamed of his Hollywood sweetheart
    G7                     C
Her love was as lasting as gold
 
                    G7
As he drew near her window
                       C
A shadow he saw on the shade
                           F
Was the great Philadelphia lawyer
       G7                    C
Making love to his Hollywood maid
 
                              G7
The night was as still as the desert
                    C
The moon was bright overhead
                            F
Bill listened awhile to the lawyer
         G7                      C
He could hear every word that he said
 
                             G7
Your hands are so pretty and lovely
                      C
Your form so rare and divine
                       F
Come go with me to the city
    G7                     C
And leave this wild cowboy behind
 
                G7
Now back in old Pennsylvania
                      C
Among those beautiful pines
                              F
There's one less Philadelphia lawyer
   G7               C
In old Philadelphia tonight
 
TAG:
                              F
There's one less Philadelphia lawyer
   G7               C
In old Philadelphia tonight
