Love's the Only House  - Martina McBride  - Key = G, capoed on 2 = Key of A

Intro:    G - C - D*  2X  (Harmonica on 2nd round)  (D* means variations with sus2 and sus4)

[G] I was standing in the [C] grocery store line, the [D*] one marked "Express", when this [G]
woman came through with about [C] 25 things.   And I said, [D*] "Don't you know that more is
less?"

She said this [G] world is moving so [C] fast, I just [D*] get more behind every day
[G] And every morning when I [C] make my coffee, I can't  be- [D*] lieve  my life has turned
out this way.   All I can say is -

Chorus:         [G] Love's the only house [C] big enough for all the [D*] pain in the world
[G] Love's the only house [C] big enough for all the [D*] pain

[G] He was walking by the [C] other day and I said, [D*] "Hey, baby, how yah been?"
[G] Yeah!  I got a little girl [C] now and she's four years old and [D*] she's got her daddy's little
grin
[G] You only wanted what [C] you can't have, and baby [D*] you can't have me now
I gave my heart to [G] another yeah, I'm a [C] mother and he's a father and we're a [D*] family
and we got each other and I found out the hard way that -

CHORUS (lead harmony), then 4 measure instrumental with harmonica

[G] You drive 3 miles from all this [C] prosperity, down across the [D*] river and you see a
ghetto there.
[G/Bm**] We got children walking around with [C] guns and they got knives and [D*] drugs
and pain to spare.
[G] And here I am in my clean [C] white shirt with a little money in my [D*] pocket and a nice
warm home.
[G/Bm] We got teenagers [C] walking around in a culture of darkness [D*] living together
alone.

CHORUS (lead harmony)

Refrain:        [Em] And no, I can't explain it, [A] and I can't understand it, [C] but I'll come and
get my hands dirty and [D] together we'll make a stand.

Mostly Bass     [G] Someone across the parking lot, [C] some band's playing out a tune.
[D] City streets are gonna burn if we don't do somethin' soon
[G] Senorita can't quit crying, [C] baby's die now any day.  [D] Don Juan left, got
sick of trying.  No one there to show him the way.

[G] She came down to the [C] grocery store, she [D] said, "I, I wanna buy a little carton of milk,
but I don't have any money."  [G/Bm] I said [C] hey, "I'll cover you honey." [D]
[D] Cause the pain got to go somewhere ( [G/Bm] I don't have any money, I don't have any [C]
money) [D]
Yeah, the pain's gotta go someplace, so come on down to my house. [G/Bm - C - D]   Don't you
know that -

CHORUS   2X  [1st is lead harmony, 2nd is background harmony with lead vocal]
[Don't you know that love's the only house;   Yeah eah eah eah eah eah eah eah, Yeah eah eah.]
