TAKING A WALK
JOHN PRINE
ALBUM: FAIR AND SQUARE

Here is a really nice song off John Prine's latest album:
Fair and Square. It's called "Taking A Walk". It's kind 
of a cool song to relax to, 'cause it's got a nice, slow and 
steady beat to it, and top quality instrumentation. The
ensemble of the instruments in this song is genius. Enjoy!!


INTRO: G D C D G D C G
       G D C D G D C D


VERSE ONE:
G                 D
A man came to our house
C   D                  G   D C D
I believe it was yesterday
G                        D
I would have invited him in
C           D             G   D C D
But I din't have a lot to say


BRIDGE ONE:
B7                     Em
His anticipation of me opening the door
B7                               Em
Outweighed my apprehension as it never had before
B7                 
And drove my concentration
      Em
Right through that hardwood floor
C         D
Oh,oh, uh-huh


CHORUS:
D            G    D C D
I'm taking a walk
D            G    D C D
I'm going outside
D            G    D C D
I'm taking a walk
D                G  D C D
I'm just getting by


VERSE TWO:
There's a girl in the Whitehouse
I don't even know her name
Her disheveled appearance
Speaks volumes of shame


BRIDGE TWO:
It's an embarrassing situation
But a situation just the same
The way she walks on others 
And never takes the blame
Upsets my constitution
Beyond it's mortal frame
Oh,oh, uh-huh


CHORUS:
I'm taking a walk
I'm going outside
I'm taking a walk
I'm just getting by

INSTRUMENTAL: VERSE CHORDS, BRIDGE CHORDS.

VERSE THREE:
Found a card in the pocket
Of my worn out overalls
From a girl in Cedar Rapids
Now residing in Idaho Falls

BRIDGE THREE:
I wish you could have been there
When she opened up the door
And looked me in the face
Like she never did before
I felt about as welcome
As a Wal-Mart superstore
Oh,oh, uh-uh

**Note: The D chord is held longer after the word uh-huh,
        Before the chorus starts this time.

CHORUS:
I'm taking a walk
I'm going outside
I'm taking a walk
I don't need a ride

I'm watching the birds
Flying so high
