Good Man
Josh Ritter Lyrics


These chords are old but we shake hands
'Cause I believe that they're the good guys
We can use all the help we can
So many minor chords outside
I fell in love with the sound
Oh I love to sing along with you
We got tunes we kicked around some
We got a bucket that the tunes go through

Babe we both had dry spells
Hard times in bad lands
I'm a good man for ya
I'm a good man

Last night there was a horse in the road
I was twisting in the hairpin
My hands held on my mind let go
And back to you my heart went skipping
I found the inside of the road
Thought about the first time that I met you
All those glances that we stole
Sometimes if you want them then you've got to

Babe we both had dry spells
Hard times in bad lands
I' a good man for ya
I' a good man

They shot a Western south of here
They had him cornered in a canyon
And even his horse had disappeared
They said it got run down by a bad, bad man
You're not a good shot but I'm worse
And there's so much where we ain't been yet
So swing up on this little horse
The only thing we'll hit is sunset

Babe we both had dry spells
Hard times in bad lands
I'm a good man for ya
I'm a good man

LYRICS: These chords are old but we shake hands,
Cause I believe that they're the good guys,
We can use all the help we can,
So many minor chords outside.

I fell in love with the sound,
Oh I love to sing along, with you,
We got tunes we kicked around, some,
We got a bucket that the tunes go through.

Babe we both had dry spells,
Hard times, in bad lands,
I'm a good man for ya,
I'm a good man.

Last night there was a horse in the road,
I was twisting in the hair-pin,
My hands held on, my mind let go,
And back to you my heart went skipping.

I found the inside of the road,
Thought about the first time that I met you,
All those glances that we stole, Sometimes,
if you want them then you've got to.

Babe we both had dry spells,
Hard times, in bad lands,
I'm a good man for ya,
I'm a good man.

They shot a Western south of here,
They had him cornered in a canyon,
And even his horse had disappeared,
They said it got run down by a bad, bad man.

You're not a good shot, but I'm worse,
And there's so much where we ain't been yet,
So swing up on this little horse,
The only thing we'll hit is sunset.

Babe we both had dry spells,
Hard times, in bad lands,
I'm a good man for ya,
I'm a good man.

Babe we both had..
Babe we both had, baby we both had,
Babe we both had, you and I both had,
Babe we both had, baby we both had.

Babe we both had dry spells,
Hard times, in bad lands,
I'm a good man for ya,
I'm a good man.

When I was in 11th grade, my dad brought home a Josh Ritter album for no real reason. He just saw it in the music store, and picked it up. He brought it home and listened to it on the stereo, and everyone in the house just came into the room and started listening too. No tv, no talking, just listening, song after song... why aren't there more artists who can make things like that happen?

Robert Crouch

AND lets all be that DAD too !

Brian MacLeod

This song was played to a video of my dad at his funeral in 2010.  It will always be the heart and soul song of my dad.  Im in my 50s and I cry every time I hear it.
