Cadillac Sky - Tired Old Phrases
from Letters in the Deep (2010)

Other than a couple of Emaj7 embellishments in verses 3 & 4 the chords are the same for 
the verses and instrumentals.

Intro: E E E E

        E            B7      E     E
I don't know if I've said anything
        A                 A          E   E
in this life that's worth re-mem-ber-ing
        A             E
Nothing bold, nothing brave
           B7        C#m7
just these tired old phrases
    A       B7             E
And I don't know what they mean


     E          B7         E
I've written my old self a letter
           A                E
I've moved on, I already forget her
      A            E     B7           C#m7
She's gone, we're alone, far from our home
      A           B7              E
but I promised me things will get better


instrumental
chords: E B7 E E  A  A  E   A  E B7 C#m A B7 E
notes:  E F# G#   C# D# E   C# E F# G#  A B  E


    E        B7          E  Emaj7
The Devil is laughing at me
   A                       E
he knows all the evil I've seen
              A             E
And though he helped them begin
  B7         C#m7
I own all my sins
        A          B7           E
And the fault lies clearly with me


    E        B7          E      Emaj7
I'm tired of coming home smelly
       A                    E
half a bottle of Jack in my belly
        A              E
My eyes red, my throat sore
         B7       C#m7
My young body too worn out to
A          B7         E
still only be in it's twenties


instrumental full mellody:
          E           B7           E     A         A          E

        E         B7       E ...
And I'm sorry for being so bad
to my dear old mother and dad
I threw some fits,
they put up with it
and now I owe them all that I am

Someday when my folks meet their end
if by chance I live longer than them
For the love that they gave
and the music we made
I'll be proud to have called them my friends

Picking: something like strings 4 2 3 2 1 2 3 2  (or  4 3 4 2 1 2 3 2
or 4 3 2 3 1 3 2 3  ?)


    E       E B7       E E A A      E E A E B7  C#m7    A B7      E
e|------0---------2------------0--------------------4--------22---0---0---|

D|--2---------1------------2--------------------6---------1-------2-------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Hopefully someone who knows something about bluegrass can verify this or get the picking 
more exact.
