Intro:  0:00- 0:23
A  D  C  G
A  D  C  G

VERSE:  0:24- 1:09

A             D                               C
"Joliet," she says, "is the darkest part of a man..."
     G
It's angry and slick
A                  D                           C
into those letters writes through herself each time
         G
that she thinks of him
A                  D                     C
Trips her way down south, into mystery's mouth
       G
and he follows her there
A                     D                          C
It's what she doesn't say that makes you want to stay
           G
and try to comfort her


Chorus:  1:10- 1:32

  D*             C*        B*
I talked to the cousins of people who knew you
  D*             C*               B*
I asked them the questions they expected to hear, like
D*      C*           B*
maybe a killing went down in your town
A
maybe it's the prison or the birth of barbed wire

1:33- 1:44
A  D  C  G

Verse:  1:45- 2:30

A             D                               C
"Joliet," she says, "is the darkest part of a man..."
                 G
It's shaped like liberty's bell
A                       D                             C
it's cracked and common law, stretched out over it's flaws
             G
just like an ink-less well
A                    D                         C
The hanging judge in town records her comments down
              G
she saves the crowd the truth
    A                D                       C
and deals with it herself, fills that hollow well,
             G
with nothing left to prove


Chorus:  2:31- 2:53

  D*            C*            B*
I talked to the mountains and streams that pushed through there
  D*            C*             B*
I talked to the trees that had no fruit to bear
D*                 C*        B*
to the colorless people that sat there beneath her
A
curled up and stared

2:54- 3:17  (SOLO)

3:18- 3:51  (SOLO & band)

Chorus:  3:52- end

  D*            C*         B*
I talked to the cousins of people who knew you
  D*             C*               B*
I asked them the questions they expected to hear, like
D*      C*            B*
maybe a killing went down in your town
A
maybe it's the prison or the birth of barbed wire... Joliet
