Slick Delta Queen by Kyle Craft Guitar Chords

[Intro]
D G D G

[Verse 1]
D
She’ll be in Denver by the break of dawn
G
Her calloused heart, her regal charm
D
Will grace the city in his open arms
G
And his bed come tonight.
D
But me I’m stranded down on Silver Street
G
Just throwing bottles at the Delta Queen.
D G
She passes slow like your memory, makes the bend
Gm
And floats out of sight.

[Interlude]
D Bm G
D Bm G

[Verse 2]
D
Austin, Texas: mattress on the floor.
G
We’d buy some grass from the kid next door.
D
We’d bitch of love as if it was a chore
G
But we made it to ease both our minds.
D
First time I lost you was a mean curveball
G
Thrown in Las vegas down a hotel hall.
D
Why we stuck it out, man, I can’t recall,
G Gm
Seems my honesty’s always on trial.

[Chorus]
D Bm G D Bm G
And I never once called you baby
G D Bm G
I never once called you anything.
G D Bm G
I never once called you baby
G D G D G
I always thought you were more to me.

[Verse 3]
D
And I saw him coming with his suit and tie.
G
His hair slicked back looked a lot like mine.
D
But that was years ago and over time
G
Lost my scissors, my comb, and my style.
D
And how he watched us at the table there
G
As we caught up on our when-and-wheres.
D
Our escapades, our life-ain’t-fairs,
G Gm
And how you’ll be leaving with him tonight.

[Chorus]
D Bm G D Bm G
And I bet he calls you baby
G D Bm G
I never once called you anything.
G D Bm G
Oh I bet he calls you baby
G D G D G
I always thought you were more to me.

[Verse 4]
D
So if I’m breathing on some solid ground
G
And what went up the river comes back down
D
Maybe we’ll meet again next time around
G
And talk of those vagabond times.
D
Keep all your stubbornness and pretty smile,
G
Keep all your dreams about that unborn child,
D
Keep both your feet out of the wedding aisle,
G Gm D
And I’ll keep you in the back of my mind.
