[Verse]
D5                        G5      D5
Thomas County Law's got a crooked tooth
      D5                          G5        D5
Every traffic light is red when it tells the truth
    G5                F#m            Em         A7
The church bell isn't kidding when it cries for you
  D5                      G5        D5
Nobody looks away when the sun goes down
D5                       G5           D5
Thomas County Road takes you where it will
          D5                         G5    D5
Someone's singing on the far side of other hills
        G5              F#m          Em         A7
There's nowhere safe to bury all the time I've killed
D5                        G5        D5
Nobody looks away when the sun goes down
D5                                  G5       D5
There's a couple ways to cross Thomas County Line
           D5                              G5        D5
You can't see beyond the trees, they're too tall and wide
       G5           F#m           Em         A7
And I never seem to see around my brother's wife
D5                        G5        D5
Nobody looks away when the sun goes down

[Chorus]
          G5          D5               A7            D5
There are castles for kings, there are birds without wings
        G5              D5        A7
I could whine 'bout it all, but I won't

[Verse]
D5                        G5        D5
Thomas County Law's got a crooked tooth
              D5                            G5        D5
There ain't a mother with a heart less than black and blue
            G5             F#m           Em         A7
When they hold 'em to the light, you can see right through
      G5             F#m          Em         A7
Every dreamer falls asleep in their dancing shoes
      G5          F#m               Em      A7
I may say I don't belong here, but I know I do

D5                         G5       D5
Nobody looks away when the sun goes down
D5                         G5       D5
Nobody looks away when the sun goes down
