"Tear Stained Eye" by Son Volt, from "Trace" CD

Capo 2nd fret

[Verse 1]

D                                   G
Walkin down Main Street, gettin' to know the concrete
             A                   D
Lookin for a purpose from a neon sign.
                                  G
I would meet you anywhere western sun meets the air
             A                   D
I'll hit the road, never lookin' behind.

[Chorus]
                              Em  
Can you deny, there's nothin' greater
        G                         D   
nothin' more than travelin' hands of time
                                Em
St. Genevieve can hold back the water,
                 A                          D
but saints don't bother with a tear stained eye.

(banjo solo)

[Verse 2]
                     G
Seein' traces of the scars that came before
               A                         D 
written in the pavement, still askin' for more
                                          G
when the hours don't move along, worn-out wood and familiar songs
             A                       D
To hear your voice is not enough, is more than a shame.

[Chorus]
                              Em  
Can you deny, there's nothin' greater
        G                         D   
nothin' more than travelin' hands of time
                                Em
St. Genevieve can hold back the water,
                 A                          D
but saints don't bother with a tear stained eye.

[Solo]

[Verse 3]
                      G
Like a man said, rode hard and put away wet
               A                      D 
throw away the bad news and put it to rest
                               G
If learnin' is livin', and the truth is a state of mind
         A                                D 
you'll find it's better at the end of the line.

[Chorus]
                              Em  
Can you deny, there's nothin' greater
        G                         D   
nothin' more than travelin' hands of time
                                Em
St. Genevieve can hold back the water,
                 A                          D
but saints don't bother with a tear stained eye.

D Em G D
                                Em
St. Genevieve can hold back the water,
                 A                          D
but saints don't bother with a tear stained eye.

Great tune. I like playing A7 instead of A though. Seems to work and a little more melancholy to my ear.
