Goddamn Lonely Love 
By Drive-by Truckers
Written by Jason Isbell
CD: The Dirty South (2004)
Tabbed By Larry Mofle
3/11/2005


      Am        C     G
I got green and I got blues 
         Am                        C                      G
And everyday there's a little less difference between the two
        Am     C         G
I belly-up and disappear
       Am                             C                  G
Well I ain't really drowning 'cause I see the beach from here
        D                                Am 
I could take a Greyhound home but when I got there it'd be gone
           C            Cm              G
Along with everything a home is made up of
             Am                 C                    G               D
So I'll take two of what you're having and I'll take all of what you got 
             Am              C              G
To kill this goddamn lonely, goddamn lonely love


Am  C  G twice 


Sister, listen to what your daddy says
Don't be ashamed of things that hide behind your dress
Belly-up and arch your back
Well I ain't really falling asleep, I'm fading to black
You could come to me by plane but that wouldn't be the same 
As that old motel room in Texarkana was
So I'll take two of what you're having and I'll take all of what you got 
To kill this goddamn lonely, goddamn lonely love


Am C G


Bridge:
Em                C                G                 D      D/F#
Stop me if you've heard this one before, a man walks into a bar 
    Em                C             G 
And leaves before his ashes hit the floor
Em           C             G                D         D/F#
Stop me if I ever get that far, the sun's a desperate star 
     Em               C            Cm
That burns like every single one before

            D
And I could find another dream
         Am                
one that keeps me warm and clean
             C          Cm                     G 
but I ain't dreamin' anymore, girl, I'm waking up
             Am                 C                    G              D
So I'll take two of what you're having and I'll take everything you got 
             Am              C              G
To kill this goddamn lonely, goddamn lonely love


Oh all I got is this goddamn lonely, goddamn lonely love
Oh all I got is this goddamn lonely, goddamn lonely love
All I got is this goddamn lonely, goddamn lonely love

This is such a good song.
Nice tab, Larry.

I tried playing this song with my 12-string, and it just doesn't sound right. My six-string is getting fixed, so, I'm left with gettin' to know my 12-stringer. Anyway, I'm wondering if the the song was recorded with the guitars tuned to Eb or capoed or something other that gool old E. I'll take any advice. Thanks. Allen

Most dbt songs are a full step down, this was written by jason, and he writes a lot in standard tuning, a la outfit, but tune down a whole step and transpose it, it will make the c to cm easier, meaning d to d minor fretting
-allaboutsaves | 3/15/2005
I will check it - sometimes I forget when I have a capo on.

Thank God for guitar tuners!
-alldane | 3/18/2005
Well, I tuned her down a whole step from E, and play the same chords as if she were still tuned to E. I haven't checked it against the song though. The guitar sure plays easier. I can't wait to get my 6 string back. I miss it.
-alldane | 3/18/2005
after getting the dvd, which i highly recommend by the way, jason plays this capoed like he does outfit, meaning these chords are right for him, the rest of the band changes the chords to reflect the band being a whole step down. awesome tab by the way.

This sounds dead-on with the studio version using a 6-string to me.
