Augie March – Just Passing Through

Capo 2 (Glenn Richards does like that capo 2)
Standard Tuning

INTRO
G--Em--G--Em--G--Em--C--Am-Em-

G                         Em
 At ten o'clock is when I rise from my grave 
G                          Em
 And cast my eyes over the ideas that I couldn't save 
G                        Em
 Become regret and break upon me now wave after wave 
C                Am     Em
 Bid me remember what I done 

G                           Em
 A strange appeal is in the magazine zodiac 
G                         Em
 What inspiration are the women of the dog track 
G                                  Em
 Now there's a wheel and there's a well and there's a big rack 
C                     Am       Em
 The perfumed killers from the north 
C                  Am     Em
 Collect each Saturday to brood and sally forth 

C                       Em
 I don't know enough to know not to show it 
    C                        Em
 Or tell it like I know more 
C                          Em
 I'm sorry, baby, but your roving poet's 
        C            Am    Em
 Just a bank balance troubadour 
     C                   Am Em
 Who can't sing the song anymore 

C----Em----C----Em----

G                           Em
 At ten o'clock is when you open up your apple eyes 
G                         Em
 And drink a cup into the one of earth the other skies 
G                          Em
 And out your mouth a tiny burst of tiny baby cries 
C                       Am        Em
 Oh where, oh where, oh where did you get into to? 

G                        Em
 A strange appeal unto a pocket where a body lay 
G                        Em
 I saw a dream of such a couple only yesterday 
G                           Em
 When the one did leave the other went to war Enola Gay 
C                Am    Em
 She had a halo, was a heroine 
C                Am    Em
 She had a halo, was a heroine 

C                     Em
 Well, I know I'm not loathe to show it 
C                       Em
 I smile like a bandsaw 
C                             Em
 I'm sorry, darling, but your roving poet's 
        C         Am  Em
 Just a footloose man-whore 
     C                   Am Em
 Who can't talk the talk anymore 

C                   Em
 We're just passing through 
C             Em
 Just passing through 

G                         Em
 At ten o'clock is when I rise from my grave 
G                          Em
 And cast my eyes over the ideas that I couldn't save 
G                        Em
 Become regret and break upon me now wave after wave 
C                Am     Em
 Bid me remember what I done 

      G                           Em
 When time doesn't tear you pay a fee to make it rip 
     G                              Em
 The ditch witch, the back hoe, the bobcat, the tip 
 G                              Em
 Soil from the hillock spilling over on that solemn lip 
C                 Am    Em
 It covers up the cedar mirror 
        C                      Am  Em
 Do you ever see your weakness any clearer? 

C                       Em
 We were winding up the road to the site 
          C                    Em
 With the windows down and the cigarettes alight 
 C                            Em
 Singing some rubbish about, "My soul's alright" 
C                   Am      Em
 I didn't know what I could do 
[repeat x2]
          C                     Am      Em
It's just you and I, some other guy, forever passing through.

C                   Em
 We're just passing through 
 (Like a gall stone) 
C             Em
 Just passing through 
 (Like a rat through a snake) 
C             Em
 Just passing through 
 (Little rubbish through a rake) 
C             Em
 Just passing through 

D--C--
[Incomprehensible] 

C--Em-- [repeat as necessary]
