'Promises in Pieces'
When the Money's all Gone
Standard Tuning - CAPO 2
           G                           C             G
Well I saw Jesus in the corner, He was talkin' to my friend
     G              D               G
They both looked my way, And turned around
  G                                C                 G
I guess I should remember, All the trouble that I've been
          G           D             G
It's just promise and pieces on the ground
           G                           C              G
Well I was drunk tired and busted, The day he took me in
    G          D               G
And offered me protection from myself, 
  G                             C              G
I guess I should have told him, I'm no kind of friend
       G              D             G
Well I guess he found out the day I left
                D
Well I took the money from the wallet 
       C            G
On the table by the door 
           D
I took the pistol that he told me 
        C                 G
He kept locked inside the drawer
           Em         D            C
I took off before the sun came up
                      G
And didn't see him anymore
           G
Well I was killin' time in Reno
          C                G
Where the snow fell on the ground
           G                 D            G
Well I was counting out what little I had left
  G                      C            G
I asked the bartender to pour another round
          G                           D             G
I threw a ten down on the table and I saved it for myself
             D
And I walked across the street in day light
          C            G
With that pistol in my jeans
  D
I walked up and told the teller
        C             G
I don't wanna cause a scene
             Em            D         C
Just put the money in this suitcase
                        G                           
We can do this nice and clean
           G
Well I was almost to the front door
       C                G
When I heard that siren scream
        G               D             G
We were just around the corner coming fast
  G                                  C                G
I turned back to that teller, He was lookin' right at me
       G                     D               G
Well I watched him fall as I let that pistol blaze
      D
And I ran back through the alley 
      C            G
And I never turned around
      D                           C                 G
And I heard all the voice as they tried to track me down
            Em             D      C                          G
I threw the pistol in that river, I jumped the train leavin' town
     G                           C
In a hotel down by Carson Lake
                    G
I was tryin' to lay low
       G                 D                G
When I heard some locals talkin' down the hall
   G                             C                   G
It seems they caught the man who robbed that Wells Fargo
      G              D                    G
Up in Reno you don't mess around with the law
       D                            C            G
Well I guess my friend came lookin' like he done before
       D
They already found his pistol
         C                G
That had washed up on the shore
Em             D                C                 G
Yesterday they hanged a man and I couldn't run anymore

Break: Em - D - C - Em - D - C 
           G                          C             G
Well I saw Jesus in the corner he was talkin' to my friend
     G              D              G
They both looked my way and turned around
  G                               C                 G
I guess I should remember all the trouble that I've been
          G            D             G
It's just promises and pieces on the ground
          G            D             G
It's just promises and pieces on the ground
