F C C So there's hundreds of auburn alabama acres F C C with rows of red roofs over warm farmers daughters F C Dm who've got no intention of inviting me in F C C space shines all above me so i settle myself under it. F C C when i wake up i'm back in my crowded city apartment F C C some random men doing work off in the kitchen F C Dm C stacking mattresses up now to the ceiling and down to the floor. F C C my fathers sick in the hallway i hear him whistlin under the door. F C C i rush to lift him but you all know i am weak and you know that he is heavy. F C C there's no blood in his cheeks but he's smiling straight at me. F C C I ask the thickest of the workers "would you please come and help me out?" F C C he comes ambling over and says "sir, i love how your whistling sounds" F C so now i drag him through the kitchen to the living room and down on the C carpet F C C he says, "son i'm embarassed, but the sides of my head hurt. F C Dm C i just know that i'm tired and i could surely use some rest." F C C i tear a mattress down for him and i say, "here dad sleep some on this." F C i wake for real and it's over. F F/E Dm Dm C i'm alone in acres and my dad is still dead. F C C C but if you underneath one of those rooftops, look out your window and invite Dm me on in. F C Dm 'cause it's cold and i'm lonely and i could sure use a friend F C Dm yeah it's cold and i'm lonely and i could sure use a friend. F C C it's cold and i'm lonely and i could sure use a friend yeah These are the basic chords. The intro posted is pretty close so you can work with that. are lots of walking bass parts and such but I am far too lazy to figure out and tab all that.
