Navajo Rug Lyrics

(capo 2nd fret)

G
Well it's three eggs up on whiskey toast
Am
Homefries on the side
C
Wash it down with truckstop coffee
D
Burns up your inside
G
Just a Canyon, Colorado diner
Am
And a waitress I did love
C
We sat in the back 'neath an old stuffed bear
D
And a worn out Navajo rug

G
Well old Jack the boss he'd close at six
Am
Then it's Katie bar the door
C
She'd pull down that Navajo rug
D
And she'd spread it 'cross the floor
G
Hey I saw lightning in the sacred mountains
Am
Saw the dance of the turtle doves
C
Lyin' next to Katie
D
On that old Navajo rug

Chorus:

G Em C D
Ai-yi-yi, Katie, shades of red and blue
G Em
Ai-yi-yi, Katie
C G Em C D
Whatever became of the Navajo rug and you?

G
Well I saw old Jack about a year ago
Am
He said the place burned to the ground
C
And all he saved was an old bear tooth
D
And Katie she left town
G
But Katie she got her a souvenir too
Am
Jack spat out a tabacco plug
C
He said "You shoulda seen her runnin' through the smoke
D
Draggin' that Navajo rug."

Repeat Chorus

G
Now everytime I cross the sacred mountains
Am
And lightning breaks above
C
It always takes me back in time
D
To my long lost Katie love
G
Ah but everything keeps on movin'
Am
And everyone's on the go
C
They don't make things that last anymore
D
Like a double-woven Navajo

Repeat Chorus

Em C D
Katie, shades of red and blue
G Em
Ay-yi-yi, Katie
C G Em C D G
Whatever became of the Navajo rug and you?
