Down In Front
John Hiatt / Two Bit Monsters 1980

John in G
Notated in 2 (measure gets 2 beats)

  1             5
I spend so much time tryin^Ò
   1              4
To learn all your languages
1       5          2-    2-
  I got nothin^Ò to say
         1             5
It^Òs all cheap talk in kind 
      4         1      
And a matter of time
5          5         5    5
  Some fool gets his way
1           5             1          4
Down on his knees he says I got this feelin^Ò
     1            5          2-     2-
That you^Òre not that kind of girl
    6-           6-           4              4
And no one knows better as he takes off your sweater
b7           4               5                5
Just what he means when he^Òs promised you the world

|1*   2*|3*    6- |6- 5 |5
 Down in front
      |1*  2*   3*    repeat
That^Òs all they want
    |1*  2*     3*
Just two square inches
       4        4        /  /
He^Òs a snake in britches

Shakin^Ò your head as you lie with the enemy
So much louder than words
All that you felt one more notch in his belt
Well have you heard
You got no heart for these bullets he^Òs loaded with
They just lite up the sky
And who needs a hero when it^Òs zero to zero
I don^Òt know baby it^Òs just an alibi

CHORUS

@
|6-  /     5 |6- 6- 5   |
 You could be an-y- one
|6-  /     5 |6-   5    5   |1    |4 |1 |4 5 |
 Who can^Òt be both-ered with names
|6-   /   5  |6-    6-   5   |
 Turn off the lites turn the 
|6-    /    5   |6-   5  5  |2-   |2- |5 |5 |
 latch it^Òs just more of the same

CHORUS

@ triplets, 3 beats per measure of 2 beats duration
