Rufus Wainwright - Going To A Town

Well, I've seen two tabs of this song on the new so far, and both may be technically 
than this, but this version I think you will find is more

playable on guitar.  Don't forget to capo the first fret.  Also, during the song there 
many instruments that I'm not sure if some of the chords are

7ths or majors so i just play around.  It was written on piano so it's a tough one for
but I find this way really fun to play!  Enjoy and if Rufus

would release sheet music for his songs I would buy it, until then we're all stuck with
best guess!

**This is only my interpretation of the Rufus Wainsright song 'Going to a Town'.  Thanks
the previous two tabs that got me started!**

Verse

    Am7                                          D7
I'm going to a town that has already been burned down

    Gmaj7                                    Cmaj7
I'm going to a place that is already been disgraced

    Am7                                            Bmaj7
I'm gonna see some folks who have already been let down.

                Em
I'm so tired of America

(Repeat for Verse 2)
I'm gonna make it up for all of the Sunday Times
I'm gonna make it up for all of the nursery rhymes
They never really seem to want to tell the truth
I'm so tired of you America

======
Chorus
======

          Am7     Em
Making my own way home

          Am7     Em
Ain't gonna be alone

          Am7     Bmaj7 Em
I got a life to lead America

                Am7
I got a life to lead

(Back to Verse)
Tell me do you really think you go to hell for having loved?
Tell me and not for thinking every thing that you've done is good
I really need to know
After soaking the body of Jesus Christ in blood
I'm so tired of America
I really need to know

I may just never see you again or might as well
You took advantage of a world that loved you well
I'm going to a town that has already been burned down
I'm so tired of you America

(Chorus Again)
Making my own way home
Ain't gonna be alone
I got a life to lead America

	  Am7	  G
I got a life to lead

	G       Dm7
I got a soul to feed

        Dm7      E7
I got a dream to heed

E          F    F#7  B7
And that's all  I    need


          Am7     G
Making my own way home

            G  Dm7
Ain't gonna be alone

          Dm7  E7   E        F  F#7 B7 E?
I'm going to a town that has al-rea-dy been burned down

And the Bmaj7 is actually a B7, that's a big difference!
