Live Oak
Written & Recorded by Jason Isbell

(Capo on 4)

There's a (Am7)man who walks beside me (C/B)he is (C)who I used to be
And I (Dm)wonder if she (Em)sees him and con-(F)fuses him with me
And I (Am7)wonder who she's pining (C/B)for on (C)nights I'm not around
Could it (Dm)be the man who (Em)did the things I'm (F)living down |(F) |(F) |(F)

I was (Am7)rougher than the timber (C/B shipping (C)out of Fond du Lac
When I (Dm)headed south at (Em)seventeen, the (F)sheriff on my back
I'd (Am7)never held a lover (C/B)in my (C)arms or in my gaze,
So I (Dm)found another (Em)victim every (F)couple days |(F) |(F) |(F)

But the (Am7)night I fell in love with (C/B)her, I (C)made my weakness known
To the (Dm)fighters and the (Em)farmers digging (F)dusty fields alone
The (Am7)jealous innuendos (C/B)of the (C)lonely-hearted men
Let me (Dm)know what kind of (Em)country I was (F)sleeping in |(F) |(F) |(F)

Well you (Am7)couldn't stay a loner (C/B)on the (C)plains before the war
When my (Dm)neighbors took to (Em)slightin' me, I (F)had to ask what for
(Am7)Rumors of my wicked-(C/B)ness had (C)reached our little town
Soon she'd (Dm)heard about the (Em)boys I used to (F)hang around |(F) |(F) |(F)

We'd (Am7)robbed a great-lakes freighter, (C/B)killed a (C)couple men aboard
When I (Dm)told her, her eyes (Em)flickered like the (F)sharp steel of a sword
All the (Am7)things that she'd suspected, (C/B)I'd (C)expected her to fear
Was the (Dm)truth that drew her (Em)to me when I (F)landed here |(F) |(F) |(F)

There's a (Am7)man who walks beside me (C/B)he is (C)who I used to be,
And I (Dm)wonder if she (Em)sees him and con-(F)fuses him with me
And I (Am7)wonder who she's pining (C/B)for on (C)nights I'm not around
Could it (Dm)be the man who (Em)did the things I'm (F)living down |(F) |(F) |(F)

Solo:  |(Am7) |(Am7) |(C) |(C) |(Dm) |(Em) |(F) |(F) |
       |(Am7) |(Am7) |(C) |(C) |(Dm) |(Em) |(F) |(F) |(F) |(F)

Well I (Am7)carved her cross from live oak (C/B)and her (C)box from short-leaf pine
And (Dm)buried her so (Em)deep, she'd touch the (F)water table line
And (Am7)picked up what I needed (C/B)and I (C)headed south again
To my-(Dm)self, I wondered, "(Em)Would I ever (F)find another friend" |(F) |(F) |(F)

(Tag)
There's a (Am7)man who walks beside her, (C/B)he is (C)who I used to be
And I (Dm)wonder if she (Em)sees him and confuses him with me -----

Kondo! Try this progression instead and let me know if it sounds closer.

Am - C/B - C - Dm - Am7 - F

The Em and misplaced Am7 just dont seem to fit but could be my ear also :-)
