[Intro]: Emadd2 Cmaj7/G D7/F# G Fmaj7 C Cmaj7

   G             C/G                      Em
I saw you at the police station, and it breaks my heart to say
      G               C/G                Em
Your eyes had wandered off to something distant cold and grey
Am
I guess you didn't see it coming, someone's gotten used to slumming
G                       Gmaj7
Dreaming of the golden years, I see you had to change careers
 Am
Far away, but we both know it's somewhere

   G             C/G                 Em
I saw you on the back page of some free press yesterday
      G               C/G                 Em
The driftwood in your eyes said nothing short of love for pay
Am
I know you from another picture, of someone with the most conviction
G                           Gmaj7
We used to read the funny papers, fool around and pulled some capers
 Am
Not today, I send a message to her
D
A message that I'm coming, coming to pursue her

 F               Cadd2              Asus4  A
Down home country, I rest my face on your bed
                   F            Cadd2                     Asus4    A
Well I've got you ten times over, I'll chase you down 'til you're dead

   G          C/G                  Em
I saw you on a TV station, and it made me want to pray
   G              C/G                  Em
An empty shell of loveliness, and now dusted with decay
Am
What happened to the funny paper, smiling was your money maker
G                        Gmaj7
Someone ought to situate her, find a way to educate her
Am
All the way, time to come and find you
D
You can't hide from me girl, so never mind what I do

 F               Cadd2              Asus4  A
Down home country, I rest my face on your bed
                  F                   Cadd2              Asus4  A
Well I've met my soul mate country, and I left it all for your head

[Interlude]: D  Am  Em  Am  C D

   G              C/G                   Em
I saw you in the church yard, there was no time to exchange
 G               C/G              Em
You were getting married, and it felt so very strange
Am
I guess I didn't see it coming, now I guess it's me who's bumming
G                       Gmaj7
Dreaming of the golden years, you and I were mixing tears
 Am
Not today, not for me but someone
D
I never could get used to, so now I will refuse to

 F                 C                Asus4  A
Down home country, I rest my face on your bed
                  F                     C                Asus4  A
Well I've met my soul mate country, and I left it all for your head
                  F                     C                       Asus4    A
Well I've got my best foot forward, and I'll chase you down 'til you're dead

[Outro]: Am Em   x5
