Two Shots
John Denver     (klr)

I took [C] two [D] shots, got [C] no [G] ducks and [D7] cold, cold
[G] hands
[G] Last night while [D7] Mike and I were out [C] drinking
[Am] Trying to [D7] have A good [G] time  [G7]
The [C] lady with whom I was [G] speaking  [Em]
[A7] Thought I was feeding her some old [D7] line
When I [G] spoke of a [D7] cold winter^?s [C] morning
A [Am] duckblind and A [D7] river of [G] gray  [G7]
The [C] sound of the [Am] snow softly [G] falling [Em]
When I [A7] thought I heard somebody [D7] say
I took [C] two [D] shots, got [C] no [G] ducks
And [D7] cold, cold [G] hands

I could [G] tell by the [D7] gaze of my [C] comrades
That [Am] I was the [D7] one who had [G] spoke   [G7]
Their [C] eyes held a message of [G] patience  [Em]
The [A7] thrill of the hunt and of [D7] hope
But when [G] I spoke [D7] again how they [C] listened
For the [Am] wisdom of [D7] what I might [G] say   [G7]
If the [C] good Lord had [Am] meant us to [G] shoot one [Em]
He^?d [A7] surely send more ducks our [D7] way
I took [C] two [D] shots, got [C] no [G] ducks
And [D7] cold, cold [G] hands

Well the [G] lady with [D7] whom I was [C] speaking
She laughed [Am] lightly and she [D7] wandered [G] away   [G7]
My [C] heart like the snow in my [G] story   [Em]
Fell [A7] silent I^?d hoped she would [D7] stay
It^?s so [G] nice to [D7] talk to some [C] body
To find [Am] someone who^?s [D7] willing to [G] share  [G7]
I [C] know that this [Am] life is worth [G] living  [Em]
But [A7] sometimes it just isn^?t [D7] fair
I took [C] two [D] shots, got [C] no [G] ducks
And [D7] cold, cold [G] hands
I took [C] two [D] shots, got [C] no [G] ducks
And [D7] cold, cold [C] hands
[G] - [Am7] - [G]

I hope you all enjoyed that goody, I know I do.

About the artist behind Two Shots:

John Denver (December 31, 1943 – October 12, 1997), born Henry John Deutschendorf, Jr., was an American Country Music/folk singer-songwriter and folk rock musician who was one of the most popular artists of the 1970s. He recorded and released some 300 songs, about half of which he had composed, and was named Poet Laureate of Colorado in 1977.

Denver's songs were suffused with a deep and abiding love of the natural world. Songs such as "Take Me Home, Country Roads" (1971), "Leaving on a Jet Plane", "Calypso" (1975), "Thank God I'm a Country Boy", and "Rocky Mountain High" (1973) are popular worldwide. Denver has been referred to as "The Poet For the Planet", "Mother Nature's Son" (based on The Beatles song he covered) and "A Song's Best Friend".
