    D
Someday they'll find your smalltown world on a bigtown avenue

Another piano plays the chords in the background:
               D                 A                Bm
From what I've seen, you're just one more hand me down
       G                                   D
'Cause no one's tried to give you what you need
       A        F#7      Bm         G
So lay all your troubles down, I am with you now


Verse 2 (acoustic strums along):
    D
Somebody outta take you in, try to make you love again
G
 Try to make you like the way they feel when they're under your skin
D
 Never once do you think that they would lie when they're holdin' you
G
 Then you wonder why they haven't called when they said they'd call you


Prechorus:
Bm
 You start to wonder if you're ever gonna make it by
G
 You start to think you were born blind

Someday they'll open up your world, shake you down to the drawing board
Bm                            G
  Do their best to change you, they still can't erase you

Chorus (twice):

From what I've seen, you're just one more hand me down
Cause no one's tried to give you what you need
So lay all your troubles down, I am with you now, lay them down on me
Ah yeah, you're just one more hand me down
And all these nights won't give you what you need
So lay all your burdons, down....on me
