Short And Sweet
recorded by Bobby Bare
written by Billy Joe Shaver
G                          D7
A soft summer rain she was when she came
    C                             G
And settled my old dusty worn-out soul
While I watched in a dream and dreamed as I watched
    G                D7             G
The sweetest and the shortest story told
          C                D7                      C
Short and sweet were those good old songs of yesterday
Short and sweet Lord  was the warm
           C                G
And tender love she gave to me
          D7                       G
Short and sweet Lord  so short and sweet
Walking down the same old roads good Lord knows I toted loads
    C                             G
But that was back before she came along
Now I'm lost and alone singing some old worn out song
          G                  D7          G
Where the darkness stretches time ten to one
Repeat #2
