Townes Van Zandt – Black Widow Blues
G#m                 B          C#m
I got a black widow spider for mama, Lord
E G#
Got a diamond-backed rattler for pa
G#m B C#m
Well, I got me a woman down in New Orleans
E G#
Got a friend in Arkansas

C# G#m
Got a morning full of make believe
C# D#
Got an evening full of time

Chorus:
G#m
I've got the hands, pretty lady
C#
Gonna make you grieve
G#m G#
Lovin' gonna make you mine

Verse:
G#m B C#m
Ain't never seen your town before
E G#
And I won't be back again
G#m B C#m
I need me a place to hide my face
E G#
From the howlin' of the wind

C# G#m
I got the blues sewn into my jacket sleeve
C# D#
Got a goatskin full of wine

Chorus:
G#m
I've got the hands, pretty lady
C#
Gonna make you grieve
G#m G#
Lovin' gonna make you mine

Verse:
G#m B C#m
So light the lantern above your door
E G#
And hold your curtains wide
G#m B C#m
Take the ribbon from your hair
E G#
And lay it by your side

C# G#m
And I ain't looking for a lie to believe
C# D#
My own'll do me fine

Chorus:
G#m
I've got the hands, pretty lady
C#
Gonna make you grieve
G#m G#
Lovin' gonna make you mine

G#m
I've got the hands, pretty lady
C#
Gonna make you grieve
G#m G#
Lovin' gonna make you mine
