Title: The Great Unknown
Artist: Shawn Mullins
Album: My Stupid Heart
Transcribed by Scott Mayer

From a youtube clip of Shawn playing it live. Written by Shawn and Chuck Cannon. 
Chuck plays it different to Shawn but both do it superbly.

Capo 1st Fret

A standard G can be used instead of the Gadd9 if desired. Still sounds sweet.

C Fmaj9 x 3


C                        Fmaj9     C     Fmaj9 
It’s Friday night and I’m back again
C        Am               Gadd9 Fmaj7
With my old guitar and my trusty grin
     Gadd9                         Am
And a best you don’t come in here sign
Fmaj7            Gadd9    C       Fmaj9     C     Fmaj9
Tattooed on this heart of mine

C                       Fmaj9     C      Fmaj9
From a dirty brown shag carpet stage
C          Am         Gadd9   Fmaj7
I sing my songs and I pace the cage
Gadd9                          Am
Stuck up here in the twilight zone
Fmaj7                Gadd9   C      Fmaj9    C     Fmaj9
Staring out into the great unknown

C                            Fmaj9   C    
There’s an old Hank Williams figurine
Am            Gadd9   F
Hanging by a guitar string
              Gadd9                          Am
From the pull chain of the Pabst Blue Ribbon sign
Fmaj7                         Gadd9      C      Fmaj9
With a clock that’s stopped on half past nine

C                                Fmaj9        C    
Yeah the time ain’t changed round here in years
Am       Gadd9        F
Same sad story, same old tears
Gadd9                    Am
Ain’t nobody wants to be alone
Fmaj7           Gadd9    C      Fmaj9      C     Fmaj9
Out here in the great unknown

C                        Fmaj9        C      Fmaj9
You can find the stool there at the bar
C            Am      Gadd9  Fmaj7
Designed to take you nowhere far
Gadd9                                      Am
They got a mirror back behind the whiskey shelf
Fmaj7                       Gadd9   C         Fmaj9
Where we don’t dare look back at ourselves

C                        Fmaj9       C       Fmaj9
Just past the men’s room down the hall
C        Am                Gadd9  Fmaj7
Barely hanging there on a plaster wall
Gadd9                        Am
A faded sticker on the old payphone
Fmaj7               Gadd9     C         Fmaj9     C      Fmaj9
Says welcome to the great unknown

C                   Fmaj9     C        Fmaj9
It’s out beyond the yonder star
C    Am              Gadd9     Fmaj7
It’s all up in there where you are
Gadd9                      Am
By some cosmic wind we’re blown
Fmaj7        Gadd9    C       Fmaj9        C      Fmaj9
Out into the great unknown

C                   Fmaj9        C        Fmaj9
Hopes and dreams and ash and dust
C      Am             Gadd9  Fmaj7
It all seems to either rot or rust
Gadd9                          Am
Souls wrapped in in flesh and bone
Fmaj7             Gadd9    C         Fmaj9    
Heartbeats in the great unknown

C                        Fmaj9      C
It’s Friday night and I’m back again
