Landlocked blues 

capo 3rd fret

Real easy song,Same progression all the way through the song. It's easy to work
out the rhythm. The positions of the changes is pretty accurate

C X32010    Am/G X02213  Am X02210

  C                       Am/G                     C
If you walk away, I'll walk away
        C                   Am/G                         C
First tell me which road you will take
    Am              Am/G                     C                    Am
I don't want to risk our paths crossing some day
     C                             Am/G                         C
So you walk that way, I'll walk this way

              C                  Am/G           C
And the future hangs over our heads
           C                        Am/G           C
And it moves with each current event
    Am               Am/G                   C                 Am
Until it falls all around like a cold steady rain
       C                        Am/G                 C
Just stay in when it's looking this way

               C                   Am/G               C
And the moon's laying low in the sky
             C                Am/G           C
Forcing everything metal to shine
              Am                   Am/G                         C                     Am
And the sidewalk holds diamonds like the jewelry store case
           C                               Am/G                    C
They argue walk this way, no walk this way

         C               Am/G               C
And Laura's asleep in my bed
             C                   Am/G                 C
As I'm leaving she wakes up and says
       Am                     Am/G                             C            Am
I dreamed you were carried away ,on the crest of a wave
        C                       Am/G                C
Baby don't go away, come here"

                  C                    Am/G               C
And there's kids playing guns in the street
               C                  Am/G                     C     
And ones pointing his tree branch at me
         Am                Am/G             C                        Am
So I put my hands up, I say "enough is enough,
     C                      Am/G                       C
If you walk away, I'll walk away"
And he shot me dead

Am          Am/G      C
I found a liquid cure
Am          Am/G                C
From my landlocked blues
        F     Am/G                C       Am
It'll pass away like a slow parade
       C               Am/G                      C
It's leaving but I don't know how soon 

             C                Am/G               C
And the world's got me dizzy again
         C                    Am/G               C
You think after 22 years I'd be used to the spin
       Am             Am/G                   C                Am
And it only feels worse when I stay in one place
                           C                    Am/G               C
So I'm always pacing around or walking away

            C                Am/G                   C
I keep drinking the ink from my pen
               C             Am/G                     C
And I'm balancing history books up on my head
          Am        Am/G                   C                Am
But it all boils down to one quotable phrase
          C                      Am/G               C
If you love something, give it away

            C                    Am/G               C
A good woman will pick you a par
           C              Am/G                        C
A box full of suggestions for your possible heart
             Am        Am/G                   C                Am
But you may be offended and you may be afraid
       C                        Am/G                        C
But don't walk away, don't walk away

                C                Am/G                C
We made love on the living room floor
                  C              G                        C
With the noise in the background of a televised war
                    Am        Am/G                              C                Am
And in the deafening pleasure I thought I heard someone say
      C                     Am/G                           C
"If we walk away, they'll walk away"

        C            Am/G               C
But greed is a bottomless pit
              C                 Am/G                      C
And our freedom's a joke we're just taking the piss
             Am                Am/G                          C                Am
And the whole world must watch this sad comic display
        C                Am/G                      C
If you're still free start running away

Cause we're coming for you!

Instrumental trumpet bit (keep up the chord progression
                  C            G               C
I've grown tired of holding this pose
          C                 G                   C
I feel more like a stranger each time I come home
       Am       G             C         Am
So I'm making a deal with the devils of fame
        C                G       C
Saying "let me walk away, please"

                 C            G                       C
You'll be free child once you have died
                C                G                     C
From the shackles of language and immeasurable time
             Am        G                          C           Am
And then we can trade places, play musical graves
        C                      G               C
Till then walk away, walk away

Am          G      C
So I'm up at dawn
Am          G      C
Putting on my shoes
        F           G          C       Am
I just want to make a clean escape
Am          G      C
I'm leaving but I don't know where to
Am          G      C
I know I'm leaving but I don't know where to
