"Hospitals and Jails"
 By Mason Jennings

Album: 'Simple Life - A Collection of Solo Acoustic Songs'

**Tune Down 1/2 Step**

Verses: F Am F
We could sit beneath the evening
And let the day turn blue
I could never let the darkness
Replace the thought of you
C'mon darling let's catch that train
To wherever we call god
Maybe it's in massachusettes
Or maybe not
It's just you and i
It's just you and i, my dear
Just you and i
It's just you and i

Verse:
Let's keep our boots pointed west
Stay left of the police
I know you're like a freight train
To escape your family
You've got a father who has done you wrong
And a mother who doesn't care
Get your backbone up my darling
Let down your hair
It's just you and i
It's just you and i, my dear
Just you and i
It's just you and i


CHORUS:
       F                                    F
When all the world turns into hospitals and jails
F                                        F
I can always count on your love to be my bail
      F                                  F
And we'll go traveling on from year to year
F            G     Fm
Just you and i, my dear


Verse:
I've got my backpack full of fourteen cartons
Of cigarettes, cigarettes
I've got a bumper sticker on my chest that says
No regrets, no regrets
I've got your love draped all around me like
A big black cape, a big black cape
All the billboards on the highway say
Don't be late, don't be late
It's just you and i
It's just you and i


Chorus


Instrumental (twice through verse chords)


Verse:
Well i woke up in the middle of the kitchen floor
I was listening for your knocking
But you weren't outside my door
And i know that you won't be coming 'round
In the way i want you to
I wish you'd throw your arms around me
But it's not for me
It's not for me
It's not to be
It'll be just me


Chorus:
     F                             F
And i know i never told you how i felt
    F                                                     F
But you could never understand the blues that you have dealt me
     F                                 F
So i'll keep traveling on from year to year
F              G     Fm
It'll be just me, my dear
F              G     Fm
It'll be just me, my dear
F              G     Fm
Same thing year after year
F              G     Fm
It'll be just me, my dear

End on G
