Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Absolute class of a song from a class band.If you like "punk rock blues, country techno 
acid house Marxist-Leninist electro funk" - these are top of the pile!

This sounds ok to the version on Hits and Exit wounds which samples the Aslan original

Capo 2nd Fret

Intro
C C/D C Dm F F7 F  C
C/D C

Improvise with C/D and F7 when palting these chords - C/D by taking the middle finger 
off in the C chord and little finger off in the F chord, seems to sound ok. Use this 
across the song

Verse 1

C
She got a compact mirror

stole it off her mother
    Dm
she got her daddy's overnight traveling bag
 F
Husband told her if you wanna leave home honey

you ain't ever ever ever, ever welcome back"
C                         C/D
and now she's down at the station,
C
baby in her belly
        Dm
kickin' gentle momma chilled to the max
          F
she got a one way ticket, goin'cross the border
    C
for her hopes and all her dreams
rollin down the train tracks, yeah

Chorus

C                                 Dm

Verse 2

C
from two to nine you work for five-a-dime
start the night with some thunderbird wine
 Dm
praise the lord for those neon lights that'a
keep the city burnin' bright all night
F
walkin' in the park in the midnight rain
swear to yourself that ya gonna change
     C
ain't gonna crash, ain't gonna burn, ain't gonna take no wrong turn
C              C/D      C
feel so alone, so you telephone, ya
                    C/D      C
call collect ain't nobody home
 Dm
you ain't suprised though you wonder why your letters come back unopened
   F                           F7 F
so you hit the strip with your freak flag high an'
forget about the tears in your daddy's eyes
 C
momma don't worry if the waters rise
           - No chord
don't ever let my drink run dry till the sunshine
