   D     G        A     D
My daddy told me, lookin back,
G                                A
The best friend you'll have is a railroad track
        D      G          A             D
So when I was 13, I said, I'm rollin' my own
    G                            A           D
And I'm leavin' Missouri and I'm never comin' home

        D
And I'm lost
        A
And I'm lost
    D                         B
I'm lost at the bottom of the world
    D                                G
I'm handcuffed to the bishop and the barbershop liar
D           A                D
I'm lost at the bottom of the world.

D       G           A        D
Satchel Puddin' and Lord God Mose
G                          A
Sitting by the fire with a busted nose
     D         G         A       D
That fresh egg yeller is too damn rare
        G                         A                 D
But the white part is perfect for slickin' down your hair


        D
And I'm lost
        A
And I'm lost
    D                         B
I'm lost at the bottom of the world
    D                                G
I'm handcuffed to the bishop and the barbershop liar
D           A                 D
I'm lost at the bottom of the world.


D         G        A      D
Blackjack Ruby and Nimrod Cain
    G                     A
The moon's the color of a coffee stain
D     G         A         D
jesse Frank and Birdy Joe Hoaks
G                      A
But who is the king of all these folks?


        D
And I'm lost
        A
And I'm lost
    D                         B
I'm lost at the bottom of the world
    D                                G
I'm handcuffed to the bishop and the barbershop liar
D           A                 D
I'm lost at the bottom of the world.



[Play riff A]



       D          G          A        D
Well I dined last night with Scarface Ron
   G                      A
On Telapia fish cakes and fried black swan
D         G         A       D
Razorweed onion and peacock squirrel
      G                       A
And I dreamed all night about a beautiful girl


        D
And I'm lost
        A
And I'm lost
    D                         B
I'm lost at the bottom of the world
    D                                G
I'm handcuffed to the bishop and the barbershop liar
D           A                 D
I'm lost at the bottom of the world.



[Play Riff A and B]



     D           G             A       D
Well God's green hair is where I slept last
   G                       A
He balanced a diamond on a blade of grass
    D      G            A        D
Now I woke me up with a cardinal bird
      G                           A
And when I wanna talk he hangs on every word


        B
And I'm lost
        A
And I'm lost
    D                         B
I'm lost at the bottom of the world
    D                                G
I'm handcuffed to the bishop and the barbershop liar
D           A                 D
I'm lost at the bottom of the world.


[Play riff A 2x + fadeout]

nice tab... sounds really good on a reonator guitar if you don't happen to have a portugese..... but think that all B chords sound better played as Bm
