you were a phonograph, i was a kid
i sat with an ear close, just listening
i was there when the rain tapped her way down your face
you were a miracle i was just holdin your space

well time has a way of throwing it all in your face
the past, she is haunted, the future is laced
heartbreak, ya know, drives a big black car
swear i was in the back seat, just minding my own

chorus: for the chorus I just use a random picking pattern 
        that keeps with the beat using the chords G C Am and D

G                                               C
and through the glass, the corn crows come like rain
           G                Am
they wont stay, they wont stay for 
C
too long now
              G           C
this could be all that we know..
    D 
of love and all.

well you were a dancer, i was a rag
the song in my head, well was all that i had
hope was a letter i never could send
love was a country we couldnt defend.

Pick around on the Am here for a moment before 
last chorus...
G                      Am                 C          G
and through the carnival we watch them go round and round
               Am              C                G    
all we knew of home was just a sunset and some clowns  ohhhhhhh

well you were a magazine, i was a plane jane
just walking the sidewalks all covered in rain
love to just get into one of your stories
just me and all of my plane jane glory
