Cowboy Junkies - A Horse in the Country

Sorry, but tab 1 is close, but ultimately wrong...

Had to fix this awesome bit of Americana


A    E    Bm

A
The money would be pretty good
     E
if a quart of milk were still a dollar
Bm                              A
Or even if a quart of milk were still a quart.
        D
And the hours, well, I don't mind
         A
how they creep on by like an old love of mine
     Bm                    E                           A
it's the years that simply disappear that are doing me in.


D       E
Guess I married too young,
      A                     D
yeah, nineteen was just too young,
Bm
but sometimes you meet someone
         A
and your guts just burn.
D                              E
It's not that I don't love him anymore
          A                           D
it's just that when I hear him coming through that front door
   Bm            E                     A
my heart doesn't race like it did once before.


[Chorus]
D                            Dm               A
Mmmmmmm.......But I've got a horse out in the country.
     Bm             E        D            A
Ahhh yeah, I get to see him, every second Sunday.
D               Bm
He comes when I call,
Dm                 A
yeah, he knows his name.
Bm            E
Some day I'll saddle up
        Bm             E    A      E  Bm
and the two of us will ride away.


A
This weather I could almost stand
       E
if the sun would shine a little brighter
Bm                                A
or even if the sun would shine at all.
D             E                     A                 D
But lately it seems to me that this life has lost its mystery
          Bm                         E                      A
and these cold fall mornings seem to bite just a little bit hard

Bm                      E
And all my friends have settled down
       Bm                  A
become mothers and fathers without a sound.
           E
Except for Cathy,
             D                      E
she bought a one way [pause] subway ticket
            A
and left us all behind.


[Chorus]
D                            Dm               A
Mmmmmmm.......But I've got a horse out in the country.
     Bm             E        D            A
Ahhh yeah, I get to see him, every second Sunday.
D               Bm
He comes when I call,
Dm                 A
yeah, he knows his name.
Bm            E
Some day I'll saddle up
        Bm             E    A           E
and the two of us will ride away.


A
This town wouldn't be so bad
     E
if a girl could trust her instincts
Bm           E                  A
or even if a girl could trust a boy.
