Return Of The Grievous Angel Song Lyrics

Won’t you scratch my itch, sweet Annie Rich
And welcome me back to town?
Come out on your porch or step into your parlor
And I’ll tell you how it all went down
Out with the truckers and the kickers and the cowboy angels
And a good saloon in every single town

******

Oh, and I remembered something you once told me
And I’ll be damned if it did not come true
Twenty thousand roads I went down, down, down
And they all lead me straight back home to you

******

‘Cause I headed west to grow up with the country
Across those prairies with the waves of grain
And I saw my devil
And I saw my deep blue sea
And I thought about a calico bonnet
From Cheyenne to Tennessee

We flew straight across that river bridge
Last night a half past two
The switchman waved his lantern goodbye and good day
As we went rolling through
Billboards and truckstops pass by the grievous angel
And now I know just what I have to do
Take it for me, James

******

And the man on the radio won’t leave me alone
He wants to take my money
For something that I’ve never been shown
And I saw my devil
And I saw my deep blue sea
And I thought about a calico bonnet
From Cheyenne to Tennessee

******

The news I could bring, I met up with the king
On his head an amphetamine crown
He talked about unbuckling that old bible belt
And lighted out for some desert town
Out with the truckers and the kickers and the cowboy angels
And a good saloon in every single town

******

Oh, but I remembered something you once told me
And I’ll be damned if it did not come true
Twenty thousand roads I went down, down, down
And they all lead me straight back home to you

******

Twenty thousand roads I went down, down, down
And they all lead me straight back home to you………….

Return Of The Grievous Angel Song Chords


Won’t you scratch my itch sweet nnie Rich

And welcome me back to town

Come out on your porch or I’ll step into your parlor

And I’ll show you how it all went down

Out with the truckers and the kickers and the cowboy angels

And a good saloon in every single town


Oh and I remembered something you once told me

And I’ll be damned if it did not come true

Twenty thousand roads I went down, down, down

And they all led me straight back home to you


`Cause I headed West to grow up with the country

Across those prairies with those waves of grain

And I saw my devil, and I saw my deep blue sea

And I thought about a calico bonnet from Cheyenne to Tennessee


We flew straight across that river bridge, last night half past two

Switchman wave his lantern goodbye and good day as we went rolling through

illboards and truck stops pass by the grievous angel

And now I know just what I have to do


nd the man on the radio won’t leave me alone

He wants to take my money for something that I’ve never been shown

And I saw my devil, and I saw my deep blue sea

And I thought about a calico bonnet from Cheyenne to Tennessee


The news I could bring I met up with the king

On his head an amphetamine crown

He talked about unbuckling that old bible belt

And lighted out for some desert town

Out with the truckers and the kickers and the cowboy angels

And a good saloon in every single town


Oh but I remembered something you once told me

And I’ll be damned if it did not come true

Twenty thousand roads I went down, down, down

And they all led me straight back home to you


Twenty thousand roads I went down, down, down

And they all lead me straight back home to you
