   D  D/C#    D/B     A7     D  D/C#    D/B

D               D/C#
I came in off a dead end street
D/B                 A7
Walked in slow and took a back row seat
D            D/C#          D/B         A7
I knew I had nothing new to say
D                      D/C#             
So many people looking so burned out 
D/B                    A               G            A
I couldn't help feeling bad about just having to be there anyway

A friend of a friend from work came in
I never have known what to make of him
He'd always seemed to be so insincere to me
You know I've always been afraid of a 12 step crowd
They laugh too much and talk too loud
Like they all know where everyone should be

            D   D/C#   D/B
It's been a l---o---n---g
    A        G
A long long year
            D  D/C#   D/B
Its been a l---o---n---g
    A        G
A long long year
How did I get here

They were talking in a circle I was by myself
Everyone was telling everyone how they felt
It felt like so long since I'd been young
As the circle kept moving its way to the back
I was wondering what I was going to say in fact
I still didn't know, as it rolled off my tongue


(harmonica solo) (Not positive of the last two measures.  It definitely sounds lower.)

   D  D/C#    D/B     A7     G G/F#     Em  A7   G   G/F#      Em      A7

I didn't say a word all the way to my car
But a little later on that night at the bar
I was telling everyone how strange my day had been
They say brother all you need is another shot
So I threw one down and said thanks a lot
As I thought to myself, well here we go again

My mp3 of the song ended too soon, and my CD is at work so the
end isn't complete.  

The D/C# can be a difficult to play.  The pinkie is used to fret
the C# (4th fret A string)

The song could also be played using a capo at 2, then the chords would be
