At least one of the guitars on  the  album is in dropped-D tuning, but
the acoustic is standard tuned (I think),  so it sounds cool like that
if you're playing it by yourself. Enjoy!
Comments, corrections etc always welcome.

STRAIGHT OUTTA TIME - John Hiatt
--------------------------------
D    G    D    G

           D                                               G
Hot summer night, I was counting all the starlight on your skin
   D                                                    G    C
Airtight, as I watched you breathing out, I'm breathing in
       D                                        G
By the lake, so humid that the moon was getting wet
        D                                            G    C
For our sake the crickets started playing their castonets
       D                                       G
Like a gypsy, you stole me from a child into a man
         D                                             G     C
It never hit me: I've been running ever since I took a stand

     A                            Em    /F# G
Just swaying in the breeze like a sweet memory

                       D     C              G
Running straight outta time, straight outta time (x2)
               D        G
Since you were mine

That autumn chill sent a shiver, girl, it shook us to the bone
And we still had February frozen on the phone
Spring thaw, would it find us with our lips frozen blue?
Love calls, but do we really live the time we're running through?
Or like a dream, do we let it die and drift away to sleep
Until it screams like an echo in the history books you keep
'Cause that stream running from the corners of my mind

Looking back I find like a river it unwinds

Running straight outta time, straight outta time (x2)

        A
Running straight outta time just like an old man's fiddle
                             G
Looking for the dance; gonna meet me in the middle
    A
I'm never gonna figure out the way that I feel -
        Em                 /F# G                     D
Running straight outta time,     but my love's still real

 |G   |D   |G  C |
 |D    |G   |D   |G  C |

      D                                             G
Now I see you- you're looking pretty in your summer dress
             D                                                 G     C
I can almost feel you as you clutch your little locket to your breast
        D                                                  G
Looking down at the picture, girl, you know you're looking fine
      D                                       G
Is it me? Was I ever in your heart or on your mind?
                  D                G
Cause I'm running outta time
                     D             G (hold)
I'm running straight outta time
Were you ever mine?
