Mary Chapin Carpenter - Middle ground

     -----(capo 2nd fret)-----
 
Intro - G - D - G - D - 4x's



(verse 1)
G   D                 G      D
For years she's lived on her own,
C    D       C     D
In a corner of the city,
G       D         G        D
Twice a year she gets back home,
C       D         C          D
Playing catch up with the family,


(verse 2)
G   D                          G      D
She tells her folks what they need to know,
C    D                 C        D
Her mother says she's much too thin,
G       D         G        D
Her sisters ask about her beau,
C       D          C              D
Her dad inquires, how's business been,



(bridge)

C           D           G      C
She's thirty three this time around,

             D         G          C
She's always been real good at listening,
              D           G         C
Her sense of humor never lets her down,
           Em            C      D
Except sometimes there's something missing,


(chorus)
G  Am   D            G   Am          D
Hey,  middle ground, a place between up and down,
G    Am       D              G      Am   C        D
She could be safe and sound, oh, to know middle ground,


(lead - G - D - G - D - C - D - C - D)


(verse 3)
For years she's been on her guard
She's kind of tense around the shoulders
She wonders why she works so hard
She counts the days 'til they promote her


(verse 4)
She'll take a weekend now and then
To stay in bed and watch the reruns
She'll turn the phone off when guilt sets in
But Sunday always kinda leaves her let down


(chorus)
G  Am   D            G   Am          D
Hey,  middle ground, a place between up and down,
G    Am       D              G      Am   C        D
She could be safe and sound, oh, to know middle ground,


(bridge)

F                   C       C 
She gave her heart away one time, 
    D               G    D        G
and says that she hasn't seen it since,
F          F       C      C   A
  Love's a puzzle in her mind, 
                       C           C
the pieces match, but don't quite fit, hey,

(lead - G - Am - D - G - Am - D - G - Am - D - G - Am - C - D
        G - D - G - D - C - D - C - D)


(verse 5)
And these days run thick or thin,
It never rains, or else it's pouring,
All her single friends are men,
She thinks married girls are so damn boring,

(chorus)
G  Am   D            G   Am          D
Hey,  middle ground, a place between up and down,
G    Am       D              G      Am   C        D
She could be safe and sound, oh, to know middle ground,
G  Am   D            G   Am          D
Hey,  middle ground, a place between up and down,
G    Am       D              G      Am   C        D
She could be safe and sound, oh, to know middle ground,
G       Am  C        D      G      Am  C        D
Oh, to know middle ground, oh, to know middle ground, 



(outro - G - Am - C - D)
