	        verse 1 
E 
She'll be in Denver by the break of dawn 
A 
  Her calloused heart, her regal charm 
E 
  Will grace the city in his open arms 
A 
  And his bed come tonight. 
E 
  But me I'm stranded down on Silver Street 
A 
  Just throwing bottles at the Delta Queen. 
E                                             A 
  She passes slow like your memory, makes the bend 
                  Am 
And floats out of sight. 

Interlude 
E  C#m  A

verse 2 
E 
Austin, Texas: mattress on the floor. 
A 
  We'd buy some grass from the kid next door. 
E 
  We'd bitch of love as if it was a chore 
       A 
But we made it to ease both our minds. 
E 
  First time I lost you was a mean curveball 
A 
  Thrown in Las vegas down a hotel hall. 
E 
  Why we stuck it out, man, I can't recall, 
         A                  Am 
Seems my honesty's always on trial. 

Chorus E C#m A E C#m A And I never once called you baby A E C#m A I never once called you anything. A E C#m A I never once called you baby A E A E A I always thought you were more to me.
verse 3 E And I saw him coming with his suit and tie. A His hair slicked back looked a lot like mine. E But that was years ago and over time A Lost my scissors, my comb, and my style. E And how he watched us at the table there A As we caught up on our when-and-wheres. E Our escapades, our life-ain't-fairs, A Am And how you'll be leaving with him tonight.
Chorus E C#m A E C#m A And I bet he calls you baby A E C#m A I never once called you anything. A E C#m A Oh I bet he calls you baby A E A E A I always thought you were more to me.
verse 4 E So if I'm breathing on some solid ground A And what went up the river comes back down E Maybe we'll meet again next time around A And talk of those vagabond times. E Keep all your stubbornness and pretty smile, A Keep all your dreams about that unborn child, E Keep both your feet out of the wedding aisle, A Am E And I'll keep you in the back of my mind.
