Jack Conte - Long Long Time Ago, standard tuning, tabbing by Spm

Intro: A5

Verse:
    Am
He lived down by the farmhouse
           G
where the stray cats sleep at night,
        F
just a deck of cards,

two fold out chairs,
       E
and the ghost of his wife
        Am
and the devil lived in his doorway,
      G
kept out the love and hope.
            F                       E
He lived a long, long, long time,

a long time ago.
    Am
He lost one yellow sunday,
         G
when he reached into his throat
     F
and pulled out all the people
            E 
that he had been

and tried to choke
      Am
but together they overwhelmed him,
        G
and he couldn't help but explode.
           F                       E
He lost a long, long, long time, 

a long time ago.

Chorus:

Dm
Asked a man in town,
                    Am
and they said he's lawless.
             E                       Am
Said he was strange, and he was all alone.
            G
No place to go,
               F          E
he went up in smoke.


A5

Verse:
     Am
Well he left in a hurry
           G
when the cops kicked in his door.
           F
He jumped out the second story,
                 E
limped down the road

and hijacked a car.
              Am
He stuck his head out the broken window,
         G
and he howled like the devil's own.
           F                        E
He left a long, long, long time,

a long time ago.

Chorus:

Asked a man in town,
and they said he's lawless.
Said he was strange, and he was all alone.
no place to go,
he went up in smoke.

Verse:
    Am
He flew right past the border,
                G
he ditched the car and dyed his hair.
    F                 
he took out his deck of cards
                   E
for a couple last rounds

of solitaire,
        Am
and he slept just like a baby,
            G
though the night was hard and cold.
           F                        E
He flew a long, long, long time,
                 
a long time ago.
          Am
When he passed through the devil's doorway,
         G
well he knew just where he was.
          F
He threw back his head and howled
          E
as he resigned himself to dust
          Am
and they found him in the rio fuerte,
     G
His body was still afloat.
             F                       E
He passed a long, long, long time,

a long time ago.
