Levon Helm - High Walls


## NOTE: ~ ~ = Walk-Down from C to G ##


CAPO: 4th Fret



INTRO: G

                               C
They got the Younger brothers
                           G
They got plenty of others

Fool enough to cower and crawl
Em           D         C  ~ ~    G       C-G
Shackled and chained behind high walls


                                            C
They say I've made more widows and orphans
                               G
Enough to fill twenty coffins

They won't hear my side at all
              Em       D     C  ~ ~    G      G-F
Guess they'll lock me away behind high walls


CHORUS:
                           F-C
If sixteen grains of morphine
                               C-G
Could just a-wipe the slate clean
                                      F
Then you know I would take it all
                                   F-C
But rotting in the state of Minnesota
                               C-G
Sweating on a chain gang road, ah
                        D
The hell, I cannot take that


INSTRUMENTAL: G   C   G   Em   D   C ~ ~ G   G-F


CHORUS:
                          F-C
If sixteen grains of morphine
                               C-G
Could just a-wipe the slate clean
                                      F
Then you know I would take it all
                                   F-C
But rotting in the state of Minnesota
                               C-G
Sweating on a chain gang road, ah
                        D
The hell, I cannot take that


                                      C
Frank, they'll never catch us alive
                              G
Not with my will to survive

We'll run until they stumble and fall
        Em            D     C  ~ ~    G      C ~ ~ G 
I shall never spend a day behind high walls

Capo to fit your Voice.. I found I dont need it at all since I have a female Alto voice PS
I think..instead of "Yet they'll lock me away behind high walls"
it should be

"Just lock me away behind high walls"

I listened to that line again, I think it should be, "Guess they'll lock me away behind high walls"
