Special Song Lyrics and Chords by Charlie Pride

 

Special
Recorded by Charley Pride
Written by Jerry Foster and Bill Rice
C 
The only thing I really own is what you see me wearin' on my  
G7 
back
 
The only friends I've ever known are the kind you meet along a railroad  
C 
track
 
The kind you bum tobacco from and view the world with through a boxcar  
G7 
door
 
A  
F 
friend who talks and  
G7 
makes you laugh has  
F 
nothin' much but  
G7 
gives you half
 
And  
F 
maybe you don't  
G7 
see him any
C 
more
 
Special I hear your lonesome whistle  
F 
whine it's callin' me
G7 
Special keep movin' me on down the  
C 
line
 
My mackinaw is full of holes ain't too good at keepin' out the  
G7 
cold

My shoes are worn so paper thin

 
My feet can feel the cinders through the  
C 
soles
 
Sometimes I see a pretty girl wonder what I've missed along the  
G7 
way
 
Once  
F 
someone special  
G7 
wore my ring and  
F 
loved me more than  
G7 
anything
 
I  
F 
gave her up and  
G7 
caught a train one  
C 
day
 
Special I had a special girl one  
F 
time now she's not mine
G7 
Special keep movin' me on down the  
C 
line
