Man From Out Of Town Bill Morrissey From the album "Inside" Capo 3 - Play like G-Bm-C-G The [G]house burned down on a stormy night and they [Bm]never did find out why. I just [C]stood alone beneath the silver maple [Am] trying to keep my cigarettes [G]dry. Waiting for the firemen, I [Bm]couldn't save a thing, And deep in[C]side my home above the roar of the flame I [Am] swore I heard the telephone [G]ring. The [G]rain let up and we worked till dawn, just [Bm]me and the firemen, And when they [C]cut the power and the lines went dead, I [Am] never got called a[G]gain. The [Em]house was gone by the [Bm]break of dawn, the [C]air was cold and [G]grey. I just [G] set off down the road [Am] alone, but it's [C]always gone that [G]way. C/G G C/G G [G]So young, so long ago I [Bm]thought I heard that train, [C]Calling out my name, At [Am] least it sounded like my [G]name. Just a boy with no direction, I [Bm]left my home behind, And the [C]sky changed color once I [Am] crossed that town [G]line. [G]My good friends did the best they could to [Bm]hold me down with them, But I [C]took one look, and I packed my bags and I [Am] slipped around the [G]bend. The [Em]lessons came from [Bm]left and right, the [C]first night out I [G] found, The laws were not meant to protect the [C]man from out of [G]town. [G]There was a cold street on the sea coast, I once [Bm]tried to call home. Where the [C] church steeples rose up above the [Am] town like broken [G]bones. Drinking whiskey with the catholic priest one [Bm]night in the recotory hall, He just [C]shook his head and said "You [Am] never know when Jesus [G]calls." Then his [Em]eyes got wide and he [Bm]looked around but he [C]just could not ex[G]plain. It was like he heard the sound of Jesus laugh the [C]way I heard that [G]train. C/G G C/G G [G]Now the years and the faces blur, still I [Bm]can remember some. There were [C]women washing windows, there were [Am] salesgirls chewing [G]gum. There were curses in the shapes of old men, [Bm]kneeling in the pews. There are [C]things in this life a man [Am] just does not get to [G]choose. [G]So, finally I found a home in a [Bm]tiny mountain town, Just a [C]simple place to keep me dry when the [Am] rain came pouring [G]down. A [Em]place to sleep, the [Bm]rent was cheap, brick [C]walls and a new slate [G]roof. The landlord said "You'll be safe here. This [C]house is fire[G]proof." > > EADGBE >C/B=X2OO1O >G/C=3X2O13 > >The C-C/B-G is really like a bass run down the "A" string 5/3-5/2-[pull >off]-6/3
