I Was In The House When The House Burned Down
  From Life'll Kill Ya

 Capo on the third fret to match recording

Note:  This is the way I play it for ease of playing.  To more exactly match recording, 
the progressions at the end of each verse should be a quick G/C/G switch, followed by 
the Em  D  G.  Same progression in between verses.

  Intro: | G  | X2

  G
  I had the shit till it all got smoked
  D
  I kept the promise till the vow got broke
  D
  I had to drink from the lovin' cup
    G
  I stood on the banks till the river rose up
  C
  I saw the bride in her wedding gown
  G                           D            G Em D   (or G/C/G  Em  D)
  I was in the house when the house burned down

     G Em D  X3    G

  I may be old and I may be bent
  But I had the money till it all got spent
  I had the money till they made me pay
  Then I had the sense to be on my way
  I had to stay in the underground
  I was in the house when the house burned down

      G Em D  X3

    Chorus:

       C
       I was in the house when the house burned down
       G
       I met the man with the thorny crown
           D
       I helped Him carry his cross through town
       G                            D          G    Em D
       I was in the house when the house burned down

       Harmonica Break:   G Em D  (2x)    G  D  D  G   C   G

       Chorus

       Repeat verse 1, End on G
