[Verse]
Am
I never would have hitchhiked to Birmingham

If it hadn't been for love
Am
I never would have caught the train to Louisiana
      F
If it hadn't been for love
Am
Never would have run through the blinding rain
    F
Without one dollar to my name
F                        E                Am (Riff)
If it hadn't been, if it hadn't been for love

Am
I never would have seen the trouble that I'm in

If it hadn't been for love
Am
I would have been gone like a wayward wind
      F
If it hadn't been for love
Am
Nobody knows it better than me
F
I wouldn't be wishing I was free
      F                   E               Am  (Walk up to C)
If it hadn't been, if it hadn't been for love


[Chorus]
C         G      Dm        C
Four cold walls against my will
   C       G         Dm    C
At least I know he's lying still
C         G         Dm    C
Four cold walls without parole
C          G    Dm    C
Lord have mercy on my soul


[Intro Riff]


[Verse]
Am
Never would have gone to that side of town

If it hadn't been for love
Am
Never would have took a mind to track him down
       F
If it hadn't been for love.
Am
I never would have loaded up a .44
F
Put myself behind a jail house door
     F                   E               Am  (Riff)
If it hadn't been, if it hadn't been for love.


[Chorus]
C         G      Dm        C
Four cold walls against my will
   C       G         Dm    C
At least I know he's lying still
C         G         Dm    C
Four cold walls without parole
C          G    Dm    C
Lord have mercy on my soul


Am
I never would have hitchhiked to Birmingham

If it hadn't been for love
Am
I never would have caught the train to Louisiana
       F
If it hadn't been for love
Am
I never would have loaded up a .44
F
Put myself behind a jail house door
       F                 E               Am
If it hadn't been, if it hadn't been for love
       F                 E               Am
If it hadn't been, if it hadn't been for love
(slow) F                 E               Am
If it hadn't been, if it hadn't been for love

Yes Shir1863, you are correct. That is how I play it but must have tabbed it wrong. My Achilles heel is my lack of discipline towards thoroughly proof-reading my work before posting. Thanks!

I would, instead, put the capo on the 3rd fret. Sounds a whole lot better! (standard tuning)
