Email:  cdmoser@gmail.com

Tuning: standard

Chords:  G,C,Em,Am,C,D

       G                      C
on the sunday after the mason dance
         G                C
it’s the one day I can remember when
          G                    C
I felt so pure and really at peace with myself
          G                         C
I was in love, the sun sang down victorious

        Em            G         Am            D
but the truth is that I have no faith in happiness
             Em              G
it turns to fear, draws the devils near
    Am           D
so I jumped the fence
             C (walk down to Am)   
and went out west

Alternate between these two chords for the verses:
e|----x----x-----------|
B|----x----x-----------|
G|----4----5-----------|

A|--2----2----0------------3--2-0---------|
E|--0----3--------------------------------|
    Em   G    Am   D       C walk down

Back to verse chords:

"Abilene
got a sales job as a pharmaceutical rep
lived out of hotels, rental cars and a stowable bag
I drove all day – from hospital pacing and clinic sweats
I drove all night – I couldn’t ever sleep now anyway"

Chorus:
"I tried, but the old devils, they found me in my room
I hid under the covers and cried out as they tore off my sheets
so I went east"

Verse:
"Vietnam
I’m long gone
I’m up the river
way past Mekong"

Chorus:
"but the old devils, they found me in my hut
they poured through the windows, they cornered me
and I cried out, to no one: “I give up.”

End on Am
