Here's a Patty Larkin tune off the "Angels Running" album which
is easy to learn and hauntingly beautiful, I think.  Mary Chapin
Carpenter sings a nice harmony on the chorus.  The Story also sing
background vocals on several songs.  It's a gem of an album.
I've indicated the chords. A listen to the song should convey the 
simple picking pattern.


                  I Told Him That My Dog Wouldn't Run

  C                             Csus4
I told him that my dog wouldn't run
  C                         Csus4
I told him that I loved someone
                    C
Yeah, that's my old car out there
               Csus4
In the parking lot

  C                            Csus4
I saw him when he first walked in
  C                          Csus4
I thought it was a vision of him
                    C            Csus4
He was looking like where he had been
                C       Csus4
Looking kind of fragile


Refrain:
        Am         Csus4       G
He said I read the Bible every day
                             Am
Tryin' to keep the demons at bay
      Am
Thank God when the sun goes down
G
I don't blow away


My friend said, was he always like that
I said yeah, but he was never this bad
I remember us playing for nickels and dimes
Out on the corner

I asked him to marry me once
He told me he couldn't because
This would be all that there was

(Refrain)

He was laughing but I didn't get the joke
He was dying to light up a smoke
And I wanted to cry

In the florescent light of the restaurant
I smiled and I got up to go
I was hoping for a goodbye to hold

But it was kind of like touching a ghost
So I ran when I walked out

(Refrain)

I got in my car and I drove
Over the bridge to the coast
Wondering where does old love go
