G* = only difference between this and regular G is to hit the 
open D string rather than the 3rd fret E. You'll hear it in the song.


Intro Riff x2


Verse 1:
G                   Gm7
Disappear from your hometown 
G6                  G*                C  Cm7  Cadd9  C
Go and find the people that you know 
G                         Gm7
Show them all your good parts 
G6              G*                C      Cm7  Cadd9  C
Leave town when bad ones start to show 
G                 Gm7
Go and wed a woman 
  G6                   G*        C  Cm7  Cadd9  C
A pretty girl that you've never met 
        G                         Gm7
Make sure she knows you love her well
     G6                 G*      C  Cm7  Cadd9  C
But don't make any other promises 


Chorus:
    G                   Am
The weight of lies will bring you down 
    C             D
And follow you to every town 
      G               Am                D
Cause nothing happens here that doesn't happen there 
   G                 Am
So when you run make sure you run 
   C                 D
To something and not away from 
      G                  Am            D
Cause lies don't need an aeroplane to chase you anywhere 


Intro/Verse Riff x1


Verse 2:
G               Gm7
I once heard the worse thing 
  G6              G*             C   Cm7  Cadd9  C
A man could do is draw a hungry crowd 
    G             Gm7              G6
Tell everyone his name, pride, and confidence 
     G*             C   Cm7  Cadd9  C
But leaving out his doubt 
G             Gm7
I'm not sure I bought those words 
     G6            G*         C    Cm7  Cadd9  C
When I was young I knew most everything 
      G                Gm7               G6
These words have never meant as much to anyone 
   G*               C  Cm7  Cadd9  C
As they now mean to me 


Chorus:
    G                   Am
The weight of lies will bring you down 
    C             D
And follow you to every town 
      G               Am                D
Cause nothing happens here that doesn't happen there 
   G                 Am
So when you run make sure you run 
   C                 D
To something and not away from 
      G                  Am            D
Cause lies don't need an aeroplane to chase you down


Intro/Verse Riff x2


Chorus:
    G                   Am
The weight of lies will bring you down 
    C             D
And follow you to every town 
      G               Am                D
Cause nothing happens here that doesn't happen there 
   G                 Am
So when you run make sure you run 
   C                 D
To something and not away from 
      G                  Am            D
Cause lies don't need an aeroplane to chase you anywhere


Chorus:
    G                   Am
The weight of lies will bring you down 
    C             D
And follow you to every town 
      G               Am                D
Cause nothing happens here that doesn't happen there 
   G                 Am
So when you run make sure you run 
   C                 D
To something and not away from 
      G                  Am            D
Cause lies don't need an aeroplane to chase you down


End on G
