G
This morning is Monday   where are you now
                                       D
Teasin' my memory  teaching me how  to lay low
             C         C7
When I don't want to
G
Well love is elusive this I know now

It's making me crazy leaving me out
       D                  C            G    C      G
In the open  when I don't want to
G
The moments of pleasures   Never do last

Are gone like a suitcase  full of your past
D                  C      C7
Long gone and in a hurry
Em                            G
Baby, I can't go through this again
                Em                              G
I don't need to go down more then I've already been
            Em                                 G
Just like a wild fire  you're running all over town
                Em                                  G
As much as you burn me baby  I should be ashes by now
G
The second street beggars  alone in their life

Drunk on a sidewalk to hide from the night
     D                         C   C7
Like I am  They're just like I am
Em                            G
Baby, I can't go through this again
                Em                              G
I don't need to go down more then I've already been
             Em                                 G
Just like a wild fire  you're running all over town
                Em                                  G
As much as you burn me baby  I should be ashes by now
             Em                                  G
Just like a wild fire  You're running all over town
                Em                                 G
As much as you burn me, baby  I should be ashes by now
Em  Ebm Dm   G   Em  Ebm  Dm G
Ah ah ah ah ah   ah  ah   ah ah    I should be ashes by now

Em  Ebm Dm G

Love it! Here's a big retroactive thank you to Rick L, tabbing all these great Emmylou songs back in 1997. For the "aaah" part it's easiest for me to just play a Dm shape two more frets up the neck and then just as it is notated, slide it down once to Ebm/D#m, then once more to the Dm, and then play the G. Sweet.
