Long Way Home


VERSE 1:
Bb
Well I stumbled in the darkness
Bb
I'm lost and alone
Bb
Though I said I'd go before us
Bb              Gm
And show the way back home
Gm    Eb      Bb
There a light up ahead
Bb             Eb      /D
I can't hold on very long
Bb                 F/A              Bb
Forgive me pretty baby but I always take the long way home
 
 
VERSE 2:
Bb
Money's just something you throw
Bb
Off the back of a train
Bb
Got a head full of lightning
Bb          Gm
A hat full of rain
Gm    Eb      Bb
And I know that I said
Bb        Eb    /D
I'd never do it again

And roof overhead

But I'd trade it all tomorrow

Watch your back, keep your eyes shut tight

Your love's the only thing I've ever known
Eb/D          Bb         F/A              Bb

Let's go out past the party lights
      Bb         Eb
Where we can finally be alone

Come with me and we can take the long way home

Widow's Grove


TRANSCRIBED BY: Benjamin the Great
 
    A        C#m        F#m        C#m
I met you in the saddle, rode you in the dust
    F#m        C#m            G        E
Held your hand to the heavens, pulled your heart to the earth
        A        C#m            F#m        C#m
There was something that blinded me more than the mist
    F#m        C#m            D
And the breath of the cottonwood buds lighter yet
 
    F#m                C#m
And you rode the maypole of dance hall legs
    F#m                C#m
And galloped to another's embrace
    D            A            E
And I bit the flowers from your wrist corsage
    Bm            E    Bm    E
And you waltzed too slowly, too slowly you waltzed
    G     E
With that girl from Widow's Grove
 
        A    E        A        E    A E
Oh, I'd follow you to the river, that washes out to the s……ea
        A                Bm    C#m        A
Through the wind, through the rain of a cold dark night
    E    A
That's where I'll be
 
Near the breath of a swallow, petals dropped as you fell
And you grabbed then shyly held me, against the stone cold well
In your hand was a glass, you held the ice against the night
And it dripped and it sparkled and I laughed a wish
 
Before it all slipped down the dark tunneled well
I heard it melt quietly and I looked at you
Bent to the earth with just one pleading wish
Your skirts brushed to the furious pounding
 
Oh, I'd follow you to the river, that washes out to the sea
Through the wind, through the rain of a cold dark night
That's where I'll be
 
        A            C#m            F#m
I hid in the elm and raised the bough, that hung even with your
C#m
neck
    F#m                C#m            G        E
And I chased you and drowned you, there deep in the well
        A            C#m            F#m
And when your mouth was full and wet, I swallowed all your
C#m
reckless fate
 
    F#m            C#m            G            E
And with your last breath, you moaned too drunk to wake
 
Oh, I'd follow you to the river, that washes out to the sea
Through the wind, through the rain of a cold dark night
That's where I'll be
Through the wind, through the rain of a cold dark night
That's where I'll be

Little Drop of Poison


Into:
Cm
 
          Cm                      Fm
I like my town with a little drop of poison
   G                                  Cm
Nobody knows they're lining up to go insane
         C#m7    Cm7-C#m7           F7-F#7
I'm all alone, I smoke my friends down to the filter
G7-Ab7                              C7-C#m7
But I feel much cleaner after it rains
 
 
     Cm
She left in the fall, that's her picture on the wall
                                    Fm           G  Cm
She always had that little drop of poison
 
 
Did the devil make the world while God was sleeping
Someone said you'll never get a wish from a bone
Another wrong goodbye and a hundred sailors
That deep blue sky is my home
 
She left in the fall, that's her picture on the wall
She always had that little drop of poison
 
C#m                                    F#m
A rat always knows when he's in with weasels
G                             C#m
Here you lose a little every day
I remember when a million was a million
They all have ways to make you pay
 
C#m
She left in the fall, that's her picture on the wall
                                     F#m
She always had that little drop of poison

Gm            A7/5- D#7 Adim 
 I guess I'll   never   learn
          Gm         A7/5-      D#7 Adim
 And it's over, it's over, it's over
Gm           A#7     Bdim   Cm7
 I'm getting dressed in the dark
     Cm    F      A#      D#
 Our story ends before it begins
   Cm     A          F#         B7
 I always confess to everyone's sins
     G#        A#       G
 The nail gets hammered down
 A#7 Bdim Cm7   Adim D7 Gm
 And it's over, let  it go
 
Gm A7/5- D#7 Adim
           Gm              A7/5-         D#7 Adim
 So don't go and make a big deal out of nothing
Gm            F9/5+     D7
 It's just a storm on a dime
D7         D#7          Gm
 And I've always found there's nothing
Gm    A7/5-  D#7 Adim 
 That money can't buy
             Gm           A7/5-   Adim   D7 
 I've already gone to the place I'm going
Gm                F9/5+   D7
 There's no place left to fall
            D#7             Gm
 And there's something to be said
Gm            A7/5- D#7 Adim 
 For saying nothing at all
 
                    Gm    A7/5-  D#7 Adim
 Cause baby that is over,  it's  over,
Gm         Bdim          Cm7
 It's done forgotten and through
     Cm    F      A#      D#
 Our story ends before it begins
   Cm     A          F#         B7
 I always confess to everyone's sins
     G#        A#       G
 The nail gets hammered down
 A#7 Bdim Cm7   Adim D7 Gm
 And it's over, let  it go
 
Gm A7/5- D#7        Adim   Gm
          You gotta let me go
Gm A7/5- D#7       Adim    Gm
          I gonna let you go
Gm A7/5- D#7       Adim   Gm
          I wanna let it go
Gm A7/5- D#7       Adim    Gm
          I wanna let you go
Gm A7/5- D#7       Adim    Gm
          I wanna let you go

The Fall of Troy


C  G7  C
G7        C                                F
It’s the same with men as with horses and dogs
C/G      G7       C  G7
Nothing wants to die
C                                 F
Ethel and James they killed in a game
       C           G7
With guns too big for their hands
      C                  F
Just off St. Charles in no man’s land
            C                 G7      C     F/A
And you’ll have to find your own way home, boys
        C                 G7      c    G7
You’ll have to find your own way home
 
The oldest was Troy, an eighteen year old boy
Shot dead in March in a robbery
His brothers started out to hell and to ruin
Troy’s killer was never caught, they say
Young Nick, he just went bad that day
Now he’ll have to find his own way home, boys
He’ll have to find his own way home
 
G7                C
Why cook dinner, why make my bed
G7                C
Why come home at all?
F                   C          Am
Out the door and through the woods
C                       Am      Em  G7
There’s a world where nothing grows
 
It’s hard to say grace and to sit in the place
Of someone missing at the table
Mom’s hair sprayed tight and her face in her hands
Watching TV for answers to me
After all she’s only human
And she’s trying to find her own way home, boys
She’s trying to find her own way home
 
C        G7       C        F
My legs ache, my heart is sore
C            G7       Am
The well is full of pennies

Stay clear of Lucifer's hand

Oh and don't let 'em wander in the meadow
          C              G      C
Or you'll wind up in the fryin' pan
 
            F            C                E7/Ab  Am
You can put all of my possessions here in Jesus' name

Down There By the Train


Eb        Eb/G           Ab         Eb
There's a place I know where the train goes slow
         Eb            Eb/G           Ab            Bb7
Where the sinner can be washed in the blood of the lamb
          Ab            Eb          G7          Cm
There's a river by the trestle down by Sinner's Grove
 Ab            Eb             G7      Cm
Down where the willow and the dogwood grow
 
Ab                 Eb
Down there by the train
Eb                 Bb
Down there by the train
Bb7/D             Eb
Down there by the train
Eb                 Ab
Down there by the train
Ab                   Eb      Bb7     Eb
Down there where the train - goes - slow

    D          B7      Em
The sky holds all our wishes

Dish ran away with the spoon

Chimney smoke ties the roofs to the sky

There's a hole overhead

It's only the moon
 
            D   B7    Em
Will there ever be a tree
 
 A             A/G        Bm
Grown from the seeds I've sown
