Knocking On Your Screen Door.
John Prine.
Album: The Tree Of Foriveness.
Capo 2.

Intro: A
                                     D
I ain't got nobody, hanging round my doorstep,
             A
Ain't got no loose change,
                        E
Just a hanging round my jeans,

               A                             D
If you see somebody, would you send em' over my way,
                 A                 E               A
I could use some help here, with a can of pork and beans,

                                     D
I once had a family, but they up and left me,
                    A                               E
With nothing but an 8-track, another side of George Jones,

         A                                 D
I was in high cotton, just a banging on my six string,
                 A        E                  A
A kicking at the trash can, walking skin and bone,

Chorus.
               D                      A
I can see your back porch, if I close my eyes now,
                                         E
I can hear the train tracks, through the laundry on the line,
                       A                             D
I'm thinking it's your business, but you don't gotta answer,
                     A            E      A         D A E  A Am
I'm knocking on your screen door, in the summertime,

            A                          D
Everybody's out there, climbing on the trees now,
                A                          E
Swinging in the breeze now, hanging on the vine,

                     A                        D
I'm dreaming about a sailboat, I don't need a fur coat,
             A          E                     A
Underneath a dashboard, got some sweet potato wine,

Chorus.
               D                         A
I can see your back porch, if I close my eyes now,
                                                        E
I can hear the train tracks, through the laundry on the line,
                       A                              D
I'm thinking it's your business, but you don't got to answer,
                     A            E            A
I'm knocking on your screen door, in the summertime,
                     A            E            A
I'm knocking on your screen door, in the summertime.
