* UP IN ARKANSAS

Written by Tony Joe White and Ricky Ray Rector

Performed by Waylon Jennings.

Capo on the 2nd fret.

Verse 1:
E
Got me a rocker without no arms

Ol' wood stove to keep me warm

My firewood out of the rain

I sit and watch the seasons change

Verse 2:
E
There's a woman in Little Rock

Got plenty of money down in her sock

She come to see me time to time

We sit on the porch and drink our wine

Bridge 1:
A E
A man ought to know when he's got it all
A E
Holding it down up in Arkansas

Verse 3:
E
Coyotes howl in the night

The rats ate my food but that's alright

They must have needed it more than me

Ain't no sweat i'll eat their cheese

Bridge 2:
A E
Way back in the woods a hoot-owl calls
A E
Making his rounds up in Arkansas

Verse 4:
E
The eagle flies wild and free

Catches fish down in my creek

I watch him rise on the breeze

I don't bother him he don't bother me

Verse 5:

Walmart moves into town

Progress can't keep it down

Tourists come from miles around

I sit on the porch,the sun goes down

Bridge 3:
A E
But i live way back from it all
A E
Doing alright up in Arkansas
