"Real Country Dark" - Neal Casal - The Sun Rises Here - 1998 
                 Transcribed by Kira-Nerys

Intro - Am | Am | G | G | Am | Am | G | G |
        Am | Am | G | G | Am | Am | G | G |

Am                      G
  As I started down the street one day
Am                         G         *            (walkup on 5th string to C)
  A man came up to me, and he did say
C                               F
  You can't spend your time all alone
C                               G
  I said, what do you think you know
Am                    G
  In the winter on my discontent
Am                       G           *            (walkup on 5th string to C)
  Solace came and solace quickly went
C                      F
  So I tried to settle down
C                        G
  In some long forgotten town
Am                     G
  But I just could not escape myself
Am                             G          *       (walkup on 5th string to C)
  I probably could have used a little help

C                F
 But as usual I refused
C                             G
 'Cause help to me always just
             Am      F         
It felt like abuse
             Am      G
It felt like abuse

Am                   G
  So I put myself up on a cross
Am                                 G           *  (walkup on 5th string to C)
  I made some noise, but could not.. get across
C                          F
  No one could hear all my cries
C                         G
  So I cut the rope and apologized
Am                         G
  For all the damage I had done
Am                              G         *       (walkup on 5th string to C)
  'Cause I was just a friend to.. everyone
C                                  F
  Who just did not know right from wrong
C                           G
  Which makes it easier to.. get along
Am                           G
  When your feeling real low down
Am                        G               *       (walkup on 5th string to C)
  And kinda tired of just.. hanging around

C                  F
  In the town of Caroline
C                           G
 I walked up and down those 
            Am    F 
Those power lines
            Am    G
Those power lines 

Am                   G
  Someone's hiding underneath the stairs
Am                          G              *      (walkup on 5th string to C)
  I try to tell myself that.. no-ones there
C                       F
  But in the real country dark
C                       G
  Someone is dying under..neath the stars
Am                          G
  So I could just say fair thee well my friend
Am                           G         *          (walkup on 5th string to C)
  But just in case we never.. meet again
C                             F 
  I'm hiding something in the ground
C                           G
  And only you know where it
          Am     F      
It can be found
          Am       G
It can be found,oh yeah

solo/outro - C | C | F | F | C | C | G | G
             C | C | F | F | C | C | G | G | Am...   (strum once and let ring)
