Capo 3

G  Am  C  G  G  Am  C  Cadd9 C Csus C 
G  Am  C  G  G  Am  C  Cadd9 C Csus C 

    G               Am                 C                  G
The rain was coming down one day and I thought I'd take a drive
G                      Am               C    Cadd9  C  Csus  C
Out to the place round where we used to live
         G                  Am            C                     G
But that town packed up ten years ago and moved to where things weren't so slow
    G                     Am          C    Cadd9  C  Csus  C
And tried to learn not to speak derogative
          G                             Am                C             G 
I went to school where they asked where I was from as the handed me two quarts of rum
         G                   Am         C      Cadd9  C  Csus  C  
And they said that there's a party over there
                    G                      Am        
They said you gotta show your face so they know you came 
        C                               G
and maybe if you're lucky they'll remember your name
      G                  Am             C     Cadd9  C  Csus  C
And I thought to myself, I don't really care

D          G
Esmerelda, hold me tight
     D               C
This lonely bed just ain't quite right
       D                             G        D    C
Let me tell you that I love you just for your information
D                    G
Esmerelda, give your love to me
    D                   C
You are the keyhole and I'm the key
      D                 G         D       C
Let's pack our bags and go to the filling station
              F          C                  G    C   G   C 
We can take a ride to forever or at least today

I was working on the spinning wheel tryin' to make myself a name
But I was never really good at being told what to do
Six days weeks and twenty hour days will drive a man insane
And the sad thing is that I did it all for you
And even though our love was strong, we both knew there was something wrong
When I caught you in bed with my bestest friend
Yeah, I was mad and I wanted to shout, but I got smart and I walked right out
When you asked me if I wanted to join in


Mandolin solo

You tried to kill me yesterday, but the hitman moved to Tampa Bay
Guess it's hard to keep a job when you're selling sin
Come on baby, put down the knife, cause I'd kinda like to live my life
Not wondering when you're gonna strike again
