Capo 1st fret  	    	    	  

Verse I
Sometimes I go walking through the long tall grass
Wonder how long hard times will last
G                        Gmaj7  Bmaug5    G6th    Cadd9
For this backward soul on a road that god knows where
As hard as I try ain''t left no track
It''s not enough to find my way back
G                        Gmaj7   Bmaug 5   G6th    Cadd9
I hit the ground like broken glass and just lay there

  	  G  	      Cadd9
Singing why me, oh why me
        G                Gmaj7   Bmaug5    G6th     Cadd9
And I throw another empty bottle up against the wall
                 G               Cadd9
And I say why me, oh why me
G                     Gmaj7    Bmaug5    G6th     Cadd9
But pitty never ever did me any kinda good at all
              G        Cadd9
So I walk on

Verse II
And I wound up on the capital steps
Watching the lobbyists smoking cigarettes
As They compare their shoes and their country club dues And who got who by the short hairs
Standing there in their high dollar suits
Looking down at my tattered old jeans and boots
And this weathered guitar that seems to follow me everywhere God it follows me everywhere

Playing why me, oh why me
All I got''s another song about how money makes and breaks the law
And I sing why me, oh why me
I''m just a broke troubadore with a bark for the underdog
So I walk on 

D, C, D, C

Verse III
Now I ain''t Jesus, but I can relate
To a man looking death square in the face
Even he hit his knees with a plea in the garden of gethsemane
To his holy father he raised his eyes
In his darkest hours he cried
Please would you take this cup from me

Praying why me, oh why me
Knowing all the while he had to carry that cross and hang there
When I say why me, oh me
I know that somewhere up in heaven there''s a big old book with my name there
So I walk on, I rock on
Even when I''m singing, why me, I rock on
Even when I''m singing, why me, I rock on
Even when I''m singing, why me

here's the missing part - it goes after "why'd ya do it?"

The (Am)judge said guilty in a (OPEN)make believe trial

Slapped the (C)sheriff on the back with a (D)smile and said

(C)"Supper's waiting at (Em)home and I got to get

(Am)to it"
