Landlocked Blues"
(feat. Emmylou Harris)
Capo on 3

    C                       G                     C
If you walk away, I'll walk away
        C                    G                         C
First tell me which road you will take
    Am              G                     C                    Am
I don't want to risk our paths crossing some day
     C                             G                         C
So you walk that way, I'll walk this way


              C                  G           C
And the future hangs over our heads
           C                        G           C
And it moves with each current event
    Am               G                   C                 Am
Until it falls all around like a cold steady rain
       C                        G                 C
Just stay in when it's looking this way

               C                   G               C
And the moon's laying low in the sky
             C                G           C
Forcing everything metal to shine
              Am                   G                         C                     Am
And the sidewalk holds diamonds like the jewelry store case
           C                               G                    C
They argue walk this way, now walk this way

         C               G               C
And Laura's asleep in my bed
             C                   G                 C
As I'm leaving she wakes up and says
       Am                     G                             C            Am
"I dreamed you were carried away on the crest of a wave
        C                       G                C
Baby don't go away, come here"

                  C                    G               C
And there's kids playing guns in the street
               C                  G                     C     
And ones pointing his tree branch at me
         Am                G             C                        Am
So I put my hands up I say "enough is enough,
     C                      G                       C
If you walk away, I'll walk away"
And he shot me dead

Am          G      C
I found a liquid cure
Am          G                C
From my landlocked blues
        F     G                C       Am
It'll pass away like a slow parade
       C               G                      C
It's leaving but I don't know how soon 


             C                G               C
And the world's got me dizzy again
                             C                    G               C
You think after 22 years I'd be used to the spin
       Am               G                   C                Am
And it only feels worse when I stay in one place
                           C                    G               C
So I'm always pacing around or walking away

            C                G                   C
I keep drinking the ink from my pen
               C             G                     C
And I'm balancing history books up on my head
          Am        G                   C                Am
But it all boils down to one quotable phrase
          C                      G               C
If you love something, give it away

            C                    G               C
A good woman will pick you apart
           C              G                        C
A box full of suggestions for your possible heart
             Am        G                   C                Am
But you may be offended and you may be afraid
       C                        G                        C
But don't walk away, don't walk away

                C                G                C
We made love on the living room floor
                  C              G                        C
With the noise in the background of a televised war
                    Am        G                              C                Am
And in the deafening pleasure I thought I heard someone say
      C                     G                           C
"If we walk away, they'll walk away"

        C            G               C
But greed is a bottomless pit
              C                 G                      C
And our freedom's a joke we're just taking a piss
             Am                G                          C                Am
And the whole world must watch the sad comic display
        C                G                      C
If you're still free start running away
Cause we're coming for you!


                  C            G               C
I've grown tired of holding this post
          C                 G                   C
I feel more like a stranger each time I come home
       Am       G             C         Am
So I'm making a deal with the devils of faith
        C                G       C
Saying "let me walk away, please"

                 C            G                       C
You'll be free child once you have died
                C                G                     C
From the shackles of language and immeasurable time
             Am        G                          C           Am
And then we can trade places, play musical grace
        C                      G               C
Till then walk away, walk away

Am          G      C
So I'm up at dawn
Am          G      C
Putting on my shoes
        F           G          C       Am
I just want to make a clean escape
Am          G      C
I'm leaving but I don't know where to
I know I'm leaving but I don't know where to

Tab almost perfect. Keep it up.

The chord that links verse to chorus is C7 which is the same as C chord except the 3rd fret on the G-string is played aswell, instead of leaving it open.

In a performance that Bright Eyes did for KCRW some years ago, the progression went something like C-G7-C-C-G7-C-Am-G7-C-Am-C-G7-C...Except the first finger in the G7 chord stays where the first finger does for C.


I've been playing that along with the video on Youtube and it sounds pretty good.
