Tuning: Standard CAPO I


Okay, so I'm going to post the chords to what I've figured out BUT not post
a picking pattern, as I'm not terribly good at picking/bass notes. But 
nevertheless this sounds pretty authentic to some of the live, acoustic
versions they have done. Here are the chords relative to capo --

(CAPO I)
    A   B9  Dsus2  F#m  C#m  E  E7  D#dim (I think this is the correct name)
e|--0---x---0------2----4----0--0---x----|
B|--2---2---3------2----5----0--3---4----|
G|--2---2---2------2----6----1--1---2----|
D|--2---1---0------4----6----2--0---1----|
A|--0---2---x------4----4----2--2---x----|
E|--x---x---x------2----x----0--0---x----|


Intro: Dsus2  F#m  A  Dsus2     D#dim

A

                     B9         Dsus2                  A
Oh Lou, I'd like to let you know that I do not feel welcome
A                                 B9
   All the birds, the trees, the falling snow
Dsus2                           A
   No, they were not made for me
A                               B9           Dsus2             A
  And though this is where her heart resides, we met in California
A                          B9
  She saw a city's promise reaching through my eyes,
Dsus2                       A
  And she turned her self away


Dsus2                            A
  Well how I curse that western skyline
Dsus2                          A
  And yet I thanked it for my start
Dsus2    F#m         A                  Dsus2           
      Oh Lou, no my dreams did not come true
           D#dim             A
  No, they only came apart


A                            B9
  So I followed her here to Birmingham,
Dsus2                       A 
  where the soil is so much richer
A                                  B9
  And though my aching pride might guide my hand,
Dsus2                       A
  she did not ask for me to come
A                       B9
  So I wait for her all through the day,
Dsus2                     A
  as if I wait for her surrender
A                              B9
  And every time I get her to look my way, 
Dsus2                           A
  she says I'm not where I belong


Dsus2                                A
  But I watch her father preach on Sundays
Dsus2                         A
  I know the hymnals all by heart
Dsus2      F#m         A                 Dsus2
    But oh Lou, no my dreams did not come true
           D#dim           A
  No, they only came apart


C#m    A  E  A  Dsus2
Ohhhh, oh oh oh oh
C#m    A  E  A  E
Ohhhh, oh oh oh oh
C#m    A  E  A  Dsus2
Ohhhh, oh oh oh oh
C#m    A  E  A  E  E7
Ohhhh, oh oh oh oh


A                         B9
  All the snow fall this time of year, 
Dsus2                          A
  it's not what Birmingham is used to
A                           B9
  I get the feeling that I brought it here,
Dsus2                       A 
  and now I'm taking it away

Dsus2                                   A
  But let's share one more drink together,
Dsus2                    A 
  before I go reload my car
Dsus2    F#m        A                   Dsus2
  And oh Lou, no my dreams did not come true
          D#dim           A
  No they only came apart


C#m    A  E  A  Dsus2
Ohhhh, oh oh oh oh (Take me home)
C#m    A  E  A  E
Ohhhh, oh oh oh oh
C#m    A  E  A  Dsus2
Ohhhh, oh oh oh oh
C#m    A  E  A  E  
Ohhhh, oh oh oh oh

(End on E)


DONE!!!
