Song: Lost In The Backyard
Artist: James McMurtry
Album: Where'd You Hide The Body
Year: 1995

James McMurtry is a very underrated songwriter, and this is one of my favorite songs off 
of the "Where'd You Hide The Body" album (which I highly recommend)
You'll definatly need to listen to the song to get the timing on the lyrics correct (the 
chorus is tricky)
Have fun, this is a great song to play and sing at parties or around campfires or 
something haha

Verse 1:
                           D
You said this is the last time
            G
A few times ago
              D
Once more its happened
                         A
Thats all in the world I know


Pre-Chorus 1:
                  D
I still hear the echo
                     G
When you hung up the phone
                 D
I feel like I'm lost in the backyard
A                  D
Just tryin' to get home


Verse 2:
I woke up in a strange world
I can aptly describe
Like the streets of a town where I lived
When I was too young to drive

Pre-Chorus 2:
It all looked so familiar
But I can't find my way
I must have got lost in the backyard
When I went out to play

Chorus:
              A
Don't open my eyes
                D
To nothin' like truth
                   G
Just leave it all lost in the wind
D                                A
Let it hide in the blindness of youth
              D
Facts of the matter
                          G
Most likely will always remain
                 D
I guess I'll be lost in the backyard
A                 D
Till I get home again

-Guitar solo- (I usually just improv)

Chorus 2:
Don't open my eyes
To nothin' like truth
Just leave it all lost in the wind
Let it hide in the blindness of youth
Facts of the matter
Most likely will always remain
I'll probably be lost in the backyard
Till I get home again
