    PAUL McCARTNEY - LONESOME TOWN (Knight) From RUN DEVIL RUN 
                     album. Released on October 5th, 1999.
   
    ----------------------------------------------------------

    Tabbed by:PJVillanueva





     Rock piano chords' pitch is usually too high to be easily 
     played on any guitar (mostly acoustics without a cutaway), 
     so I have tabbed a few bits an octave lower, so that anyone 
     who wants to play that part can do it without any troubles. 
     I have tried to keep the same tones as the original as much
     as possible.





    There's a place where lovers go
    To cry their troubles away
    And we call it Lonesome Town
    Where the broken hearts stay

    You can buy a dream or two
    To last you all through the years
    And the only price you pay
    Is a heart full of tears

    Going down to Lonesome Town, 
    Where the broken hearts stay
    I'm going down to Lonesome Town, 
    To cry my troubles away

    Well now in the town of broken dreams
    The streets are filled with regret
    Maybe down in Lonesome Town
    I can learn to forget

                   SOLO

    Going down to Lonesome Town, 
    Where the broken hearts stay
    Yeah, I'm going down to Lonesome Town,
    To cry my troubles, cry my troubles away

    In the town of broken dreams
    The streets are filled with regret
    Maybe down in Lonesome Town
    I can learn to forget 

    Maybe down in Lonesome Town
    I can learn to forget
