verse 1
C                                                         F                   C

I'm a dirty, dusty, desert, dude, of dubious distinction.

                                                                                 D7                         G7

My hair ain't combed, shirt ain't washed, and jeans in need of stitchin'.

       C                                                                    F

My shoes 'er worn down thru the soles, my socks 'er done full 'a holes,

      C                                                              G7                           C

but I don't care 'bout none 'a those, 'fer that glitter I'm 'a lookin'.

verse 2
          C                                                                    F                  C

Done looked up & down this valley wide, 'fer anything a glistenin'.

                                                    D7                  G7

Up each canyon I did stride, a hopin' and a wishin'.

        C                                                             F

The sun's pert' near tanned my hide, reflection I don't recognize,

C                                                           G7                 C

you've just got to realize, 'fer that glitter I'm a lookin'.

CHORUS:
          F                                                 C

That glitter is the stuff of which I dream.

              Am                     D7          G7

But the daily search is my reality.

verse 3
        C                                                        F

The only time I'm satisfied, with that smelly burro by my side,

                C                                                          D7                          G7

Is with a grub stake tied onto it's hide, and flies we're both a swooshin'.

            C                                                           F

Spend all my time lookin' here & there, nothin' to show but this silver hair,

          C                                                                 G7                 C

ain't seen no prospects anywhere, 'fer that glitter I'm a lookin'.

CHORUS:
          F                                                 C

That glitter is the stuff of which I dream.

              Am                     D7          G7

But the daily search is my reality.

verse 4
         C                                                                          F

Gave up that burro's cantankerous stare, 'fer a brand new flivver's fender flares,

          C                                                                 D7           G7

That rattley' thing goes anywhere, with its radiator steamin'.

             C                                                                     F

Spend all my time bouncin' up and down, while tryin' to stare at that hot dry ground.
C                                                                        D7             G7                    C          F          C
One of these days I'll settle down, but 'fer now - that glitter I'm a - lookin'.
