Summer Wages Recorded J.D. Crowe Written by Ian Tyson
G C Never hit seventeen when you play against the dealer G Am D7 For you know that the odds won't ride with you G And never leave your woman alone C When your friends are out to steal her G Am D7 G Here's a gamble and lost like summer wa-ges
C And we'll keep rollin' on till we get to Vancouver G Am D7 And the woman that I love is living there G C Its been six long months and more since I've seen her G Am D7 G She may be gambled and gone like summer wa-ges
D7 C G And all the beer taverns all down along Young Street G7 C G The dreams of the season are all spilled down on the floor D7 C G All the big stands of timber just waitin' for fallin' G7 C D7 And the hustlers sit and watchfully as they wait there by the door
G C So I'll work on them towboats in my slippery city shoes G Am D7 Which I swore I would never do again G Through the gray fog bound straights C Where the cedars stand watchin' G Am D7 G I'll be far off and gone like summer wa-ges
C She's a woman so fine I may never try to find her G Am D7 For good memories are what we had before G They should never be changed C For they're all that I'll take with me G Am D7 G Now I've gambled and lost my summer wa-ges
C G Am D7 G Years are gambled and lost like summer wa-ges
