Rest Awhile
Recorded by Bobby Bare
Written by Shel Silverstein
[3/4 time]

C F
Does anyone know of a girl who might like
G7 C
A tired old boy on a rusty old bike
F
Who just pulled in today from the Florida Glades
G7 C
And just got to stop and rest awhile and rest awhile

F
Does anyone know of someone who can use
G7 C
A hard working fool who don't ever touch booze
F
Who's only vice is a roll of the dice
G7 C
And he's just got to stop and rest awhile and rest awhile

F C
Easy there lady I don't want no trouble
G7 C
I'll pay for my chili and leave
F C
Easy there mister I got the money
D7 G7
And if I was you I'd let go of my sleeve

C F
Does anyone know of a place I can sleep
G7 C
Where I won't hear the cry of the wind as she weeps
F
For a poor wandering soul who got no place to go
G7 C
And just got to stop and rest awhile and rest awhile

F C
No fellers you can't have a ride
G7 C
Cause my bike and my girls I don't share
F C
Hey sheriff thank you for stopping
D7 G7
And being concerned bout the length of my hair

C F
Can anyone lend me a half tank of gas
G7 C
And I guess that a smile would be too much to ask
F
Cause your warm friendly town don't want my kind around
G7 C
And I guess I can't stop and rest awhile and rest awhile

F C
Hello momma your boys coming home
G7 C
Cause my bike and my dreams all got wrecked
F C
No momma don't hung up the phone
D7 G7
I'm sorry that I had to call you collect

C F
Can anyone lend me a half tank of gas
G7 C
I guess that a smile would be too much to ask
F
Your warm friendly town don't want my kind around
G7 C
I guess I won't stop and rest awhile and rest awhile
