TO HER DOOR  (Paul Kelly)


|G     |D     |C     |G     |
|G     |D     |C     |G     |

[Verse 1]

G                D    C               G
They got married early,  never had no money,
(G)              D       C                      G
Then when he got laid off,  they really hit the skids,
(G)               D        C                   G
He started up his drinking,  then they started fighting,
(G)               D    C                    G
He took it pretty badly,  she took both the kids,
(G)        Em               D       C                D
She said: "I'm not standing by,  to watch you slowly die,
            C      D          G     D
So watch me walking,  out the door,
(D)     C   G              D 
Out the door,  out the door, 
She said "Shove it, Jack, I'm walking out your fucking door"

[Verse 2]

G               D        C               G
She went to her brother's,  got a little bar work,
(G)            D      C                    G
He went to the buttery,  he stayed about a year,
(G)             D     C                   G
Then he wrote a letter,  he said I want to see you,
(G)                    D     C                      G
She thought he sounded better,  she sent him up the fare,
(G)    Em                 D     C              D
He was riding through the cane, in the pouring rain,
(D)   C   D         G     D
On Olympic,  to her door.
(D)    C   G              D        C     G
To her door,  to her door,  to her door.

And his heart was singin' like a low-down guitar

[Lead break]

|G     |D     |C     |G     |
|G     |D     |C     |G     |
|G     |D     |C     |G     |
|G     |D     |C     |G     |

[Verse 3]

G               D     C               G
He came in on a Sunday,  every muscle aching,
(G)             D     C                      G
Walking in slow motion,  like he'd just been hit,
(G)             D     C                    G
Did they have a future?  Would he know his children?
(G)             D      C                     G
Could he make a picture  and get them all to fit?
(G)    Em             D     C                  D
He was shaking in his seat, riding through the streets,
(D)   C       D  
In a silvertop,  to her,
Em             D     C                  D
Shaking in his seat, riding through the streets,
(D)  C        D        G     D
In a silvertop,  to her door.
(D)    C   G             D         C      G
To her door,  to her door,  to her door.

[Lead break] (again), fade by 8th bar:

|G     |D     |C     |G     |
|G     |D     |C     |G     |

The lyric that closes out the first verse is "shove it Jack, I'm walking out the ****ing door."
