capo on 2nd fret 


G
Every step of the way
(G)
We walk the line
(G)
Your days are numbered
(G)
So are mine

(G)
Time is piling up
(G)
We struggle and we scrape
(G)
We’re all boxed in
D          G
Nowhere to escape

(G)
City's just a jungle
(G)
More games to play
(G)
I'm trapped in the heart of it
(G)
Trying to get away

(G)
I was raised in the country
(G)
Been working in the town
(G)
I been in trouble since I
D               G
Set my suitcase down

D
I ain't got nothing for you
(D)
I had nothing before
(D)
Don't even do anything
(D)
For myself anymore
(D)
Sky's full of fire
(D)
Rain pouring down
(D)
There's nothing you can sell me
(D)
So I'll see you around

G
All my powers of expression
(G)
And thoughts so sublime
(G)
Could never do you justice
(G)
In reason or rhyme
(G)
Well there's only one thing I did wrong
                        D         G
I stayed in Mississippi a day too long

G
The devil's in the alley, mule kicking in the stall
(G)
Say anything you wanna, I've heard it all
(G)
I was thinking about the things that you said
                              D       G
I was dreaming I was sleeping in your bed

G
Walking through the leaves, falling from the trees
G
Feelin' like a stranger nobody sees
G
Well so many things we never will undo
                     D              G
I know you're sorry, well I'm sorry too

D
Some people'll offer you their hand and some won't
(D)
Last night I knew you, tonight I don't
(D)
I need something strong to distract my mind
(D)
I'm gonna look at you 'til my eyes go blind

G
Well I got here, following the southern star
(G)
I crossed that river just to be where you are
(G)
There's only one thing that I did wrong
                        D         G
I stayed in Mississippi a day too long
(G)
Well my ship's been split to splinters; it's sinking fast
(G)
I'm drowning in the poison, got no future, got no past
(G)
But my heart is not weary, and smiling's free
                                                D           G
I've got nothing but affection for those who've sailed with me

(G)
Everybody's moving if they ain't already there
(G)
Everybody's got to move somewhere
(G)
Well stick with me baby anyhow
                                       D           G
Things should start to get interesting right about now

D
My clothes are wet, tight on my skin
(D)
Not as tight as the corner that I painted myself in
(D)
I know that fortune is waiting to be kind
(D)
So give me your hand and say you'll be mine

G
The emptiness is endless, gold is gray
(G)
You can always go back, but you can't go back all the way
(G)
Well there's only one thing that I did wrong
                          D       G
I stayed in Mississippi a day too long
(G)
Yeah the only thing that I did wrong
                            D       G
Was stayed in Mississippi a day too long
(G)
The only thing that I did wrong
-no chord-                  D       G
Was stayed in Mississippi a day too long
