email@example.com This is probably my favorite Radney Foster song. There are a lot of walking basslines, mostly between Cadd9->G and G->Em, but they're pretty typical stuff, so you should be able to figure them out. verses and intro: G-G-Cadd9-G-Em-D-Cadd9-G Verse 1: G G Old Silver died Cadd9 G Last Saturday evening Em D Or was it more like Cadd9 G Ten years ago? G G She laid two dozen roses Cadd9 G On the top of his coffin Em D And buried them deep Cadd9 G Where they never would grow Em D Lord she buried them deep Cadd9 G Where they never would grow Verse 2: Now the Irish are funny They'll cry when they have to And the lady she moaned Such a mournful sound Me and the Mexican Just finished the bottle And remembered the days When Old Silver was around Yea remembered the days When Old Silver was around Bridge: G-Am-Em7 Chorus: C C Old Silver took F C The best of it with him G D The lovers and the dealers Cadd9 G And the dreamers of dreams Bridge: C C Old Silver took F C The love of a lady G D Who never got over Cadd9 G Old Silver and me Em D Lord she never got over Cadd9 G Old Silver and me Instrumental: Em-D-Cadd9-G Verse 3: Old Silver had the magic And he carried the money With the grace of a gambler And he lost it for years He knew his lines better Than a good carney barker Wore the best damn boots That you ever have seen Had the best snakeskin boots That you ever have seen Verse 4: Now the lady she loved him She never asked questions Though she lay awake wonderin On many a night She swore she was leavin Most every morning But she always would kiss him When he turned out the lights She was always right there When he turned out the lights Bridge: Chorus: Instrumental: Play chords for chorus Verse 5: Now there's always a sidekick In every B Western Who's always in love With a lady who leaves She can't stand the memory So I really don't blame her For takin the very First Greyhound she'd seen God I hate her for takin the first Greyhound she'd seen Bridge: Chorus: Instrumental: Em-D-Cadd9-G Outro: G G Old Silver died Cadd9 G Last Saturday evening Em D Or was it more like Cadd9 G Ten years ago?
