I didn't bother to tab the intro because that is played on the electric guitar. Leave 
intro to your electric guitar-playing friend and play this on your acoustic:

John Hiatt - Window on the world

Capo 2nd fret

D                   G        D
A broken promise i kept too long
D                      A
A greasy shade and a curtain drawn
D                      G          D
A broken glass and a heart gone wrong
D           A            D
That's my window on the world


D                      G    D
A cup of coffee in a shaky hand
D                 A
Wakin' up in a foreign land
D                           G         D
Tryin' to act like i got somethin' planned
D           A            D
That's my window on the world


Chorus 1:
D                G        D
That's my window on the world
D                          G      D
Could you stand a little closer, girl
D               G          A
Don't let mama cut those curfs
A                        D
That's my window on the world


(time to call your buddy with the el. guitar)


In broad daylight that circus tent
Pulled up stakes, I don't know where it went
A close dark room with a busted vent
That's my window on the world


I think about you when i'm countin' sheep
I think about you, then i can't sleep
I think that ocean is just so deep
That's my window on the world


Chorus 2:
That's my window on the world
Could you stand a little closer, girl
The queen of Sheba meets the duke of earle
That's my window on the world

(is your buddy there yet?)

Down on indiana avenue
Wes and jimmy, man they played the blues
I guess they were only passin' through
That's my window on the world


Chorus 1
That's my window on the world
Could you stand a little closer, girl
Don't let mama cut those curfs
That's my window on the world

Chorus 2:
That's my window on the world
Could you stand a little closer, girl
The queen of Sheba meets the duke of earle
That's my window on the world
