Capo 5th fret, standard tuning. 

C                           E7
    Things seem so opposite 
                Am
More and more 
         G
Everyday 

C                                 E7     
    I'm asleep when I'm wide awake 
             Am
And the sun shines 
             G
When it rains 

C                     
    Feels like I'm lying when 
      E7
I'm telling the truth 
          Am
And it hurts
           G 
How it pains 

                 C
When they ask how I'm doing 
                E7
And i just smile in reply 
         Am
I say "Thanks
      G
I'm okay" 

            C  
I'm just    stumblin' 
            E7                           Am
I'm just    drunk again
                              G
It's not my fault anyway
 
               C
Just some    song I wrote
               E7                        Am
Just some    heart I broke
                           G
Another ball and chain 

C                        E7
    My father put down his guitar
             Am
And he spoke
          G 
His refrain 

             C                                               E7
He said "You can write songs 'till you're blue in the face 
             Am
But son nothin's
            G 
Gonna change"
 
         C                                   E7                    
And I think of that now as I'm writing this down
               Am 
trying to catch
         G 
Your gaze 

                 C                                     E7
With some pretty words, wrapped in metaphors 
                     Am
Hoping I can leave you
         G 
On a page 

                  C
Take what's      killing me,
                  E7                          Am
Light it with      kerosene, 
                      G
Turn and walk away 

                C
May each       verse I write
                E7                            Am
Be my last     compromise 
                                G
To simply numb the pain 

              C                 E7        Am
Because you know as well as I do
                  F        G    C  
That these things will fade 


**Guitar 1 Solo** C   E7  Am  G (2x)

C                                   E7 
    I know a woman who lives alone
      Am
In a house
                G 
Down the way 

                    C   
Who wears a beautiful gown 
          E7
And a thorny crown 
                 Am                       G
And hangs paintings without frames
 
      C     
She waters her plants
                       E7                                    Am 
And feeds her shepard dog that's locked up 
             G
With no name 

                 C
And every now and again
                  E7 
Something falls and breaks
        Am                        G 
And darkness leads the way

                         C 
'Cause when her    husband died
                         E7                           Am
There was no          blinding light 
                      G
Just an empty grave
 
              C
Now her       hallowed god
              E7                                      Am 
Is just a        calloused fraud
                             G
And no one's ever saved
 
C                                           E7               
    Sometimes I hear her sing songs so true
            Am 
They remind me
       G 
Of a place
 
        C                 
That I've never been
            E7                                       Am 
But her voice captures me, and I'm forced 
         G
To retrace
 
       C                    
The steps to her door
            E7                                 Am  
Where I hide and listen, 'till her dog barks
              G 
From its cage
 
              C
And she straightens up,
          E7                      Am 
Looks right at me, and demands
                G 
In a wispy way
 
              C
She says              "Who are you?"
                      E7                                 Am
"What are you      going to do?" 
                                        G
"Come out and show your face"
 
         C
I said        "Ma'm I've tried 
         E7                                              Am
My en---tire life
                                    G
To try and answer that phrase 

      C        E7     Am       
But if you sing another song,
                   F 
I think we'd be
G   C  
O-kay 

(Let ring) 
        C                   E7     Am
And should we all die tomorrow 
                  F
At least we had 
G    C
To-day
