About this tab version
Simple chords, but it is -at least- a blues, so it is up to you, what you make of it. Was this info helpful? Yes No
[Verse]
Am7
I been down in Pennsylvania,
Dm7                        Am7
Where I was working in the mine.

And I been down in Cincinnati;
Dm7                           Am7  
They laid me off the assembly line.
Em7                            Dm7
Yeah, they got me looking everywhere,
                                Am7      Em7
But I ain't too proud of what I found.
                                      Am7
And you can't name where I ain't been down.
Dm7                                      Am7      Em7
'Cause there ain't no place I ain't been down.

[Verse]
Am7
I was down in Kansas City,
Dm7                               Am7
Where even the blues sell by the pound

And I been down in New York City, brother,
Dm7                           Am7  
And that ain't no place to be down.
Em7                                    Dm7 
Yeah, I'm a-looking at the face of the children;
                                    Am7      Em7
You see, we're looking for a higher ground,
                                      Am7
And you can't name where we ain't been down.
Dm7                                       Am7      Em7
'Cause there ain't no place we ain't been 

[Chorus]
        Dm7
We fell down somewhere
                           Am7
Between the cities and the towns.
        Dm7
We went down, I know,
                           Am7
Between the smiles and the frowns.
                           Dm7
And if they call me in the morning,
                          Am7      Em7
I mean, I'd recognize the sound,
                                          Am7
'Cause you can't name where we ain't been down.
Dm7                                Am7      Em7
There ain't no place we ain't been down.

[Verse]
Am7
Standing in the shadows
Dm7                                  Am7
It sho'nuff (sure enough) looks like rain.

I see the steel-gray clouds above me
Dm7                            Am7
Yeah, well the anguish and the pain.
Em7                                 Dm7
Yeah, I been looking everywhere for peace,
                                   Am7      Em7
But I swear, there just ain't none around.
                                      Am7
But you can't name where I ain't been down.
Dm7                                      Am7     Em7
'Cause there ain't no place I ain't been down.

[Chorus]
        Dm7
We been down
                           Am7
Between the cities and the towns.
           Dm7
Yeah, been down somewhere
                           Am7
Between the smiles and the frowns.
                           Dm7
And if they call me in the morning,
                          Am7       Em7
I mean, I'd recognize the sound,
                                         Am7
'Cause you can't name where I ain't been down.
Dm7                               Am7     Em7
There ain't no place I ain't been down.
