Capo 1

       F             G
Just a mile down the road
      F             F
And a street or two away
             F
There's that freckled missus that I
G               F
want most every day
           F           G
Out to the home of her father
          F                F
I'm gonna drag my sore old feet
         F
Tell him she's the woman who can
G               F
Wake me from my sleep

         Am
She said kiss me
         Dm
Lord, I listened, but
  Am                F
I haven't gone back since
         F                  G                 F
Though I curse the mind for building a proper fence

           F            G
Now I will roll, I will suffer
          F                  F
Curse the soil and curse the stones
         F                      G                F
Keep my eyes a leaking for that girl does love my bones
F                   G
I've know her for a year
     F              F
Only seen her seven days
    F                G                F
One week too many to keep men like me away

         Am
She said kiss me
         Dm
Lord, I listened
         Am                F
Though I haven't gone back since
         F                  G                 F
Though I curse the mind for building a proper fence

               F                  G
So three years after, I found her doorstep
          F                   F
Found her shoes and found her kin
             F                    G                   F
They told me old grim reaper done come and turned her in
        F             G
Pouring liquor on the stone
     F                 F
That marks my lost and gone
       F                  G               F
I will whimper, wail, and sing her funeral song

A quick attempt. Not entirely sure about the Am or the "eyes will be fixed" bit, but it 
should be accurate besides that. Have fun.
