1. Pretty Girl From Matthews
   Tuning: EADGBE
Tabbed By: davidw_home



G                         C
Hold on a minute it ain't time to leave 
                                    G
Tell me how you're feeling one more time.
G                         C
Four long years and I just can't believe
                                    G
That I'm still yours and your still mine.


                         C
While I was gone, yes, I fell in love 
                                    G
Asked around and heard that you did too 
                           C
Two drunken years and push came to shove 
                         G
I met love, love left me blue


Bm     C             G
You're rising like a sun 
Bm              C              G
That pulled the curtain on the night 
D                 C
Coming through the window 
   G        Am     C       G
To brighten up my life 


And I'm all right, yeah, I think I'm fine 
My savior lives in telephones 
And I just dream of you and step outside 
Dial up and hope that you're home 

You're rising like a sun 
That waits up all night 
Coming through the window 
To brighten up my life 

Hold on a minute, yeah, I do love you 
Sometimes I guess that ain't enough 
When you come round you put me through 
And I thank you, oh, so much 

Another year, maybe, three or four 
Maybe five or six or even more 
You'll find another man to take my place 
And I'll see you on the good Lord's shores 

You're rising like a sun 
That pulled the curtain on the night 
Coming through the window 
To brighten up my life

What a darling summer time 
I have a home in Carolina 
Baby, Baby 
Not far from the city lights 
But we can see the stars at night

The day was hot, tonight is cool 
And we are finally out of school 
Baby, Baby 
Well I'm in love what can I say 
With Jenny and the summer day

Ninety and risin' 
Soon we'll have to hide out in the shade 
Somewhere it's rainin' 
And baby I can almost hear you say 
That you love me 
And the summer day 
That you love me

   Tuning: EADGBE

*| - indicates 4 beats

C            G        Am    G F     G   C       Em7
If I weren't leavin', would I catch you dreamin'
And if I weren't gonna be gone now, could I take you home
And if I told you I love you, would it change what you see
And if I was staying, would you stay with me
And if I had money, would it all look good
And if I had a job now, like a good man should
And if I came to you tomorrow, and said let's run away
Would you roll like the wind does, baby would you stay


My heart is dancin', to a November tune
And I hope that you hear it, singing songs about you
And I sing songs of sorrow, because you're not around
See, babe I'm gone tomorrow, Baby follow me down


I don't know why I have to, but this man must move on
I love my time here, didn't know 'til I was gone
November shadows, shade November change
November spells sweet memory, the season blue remains
                               (Slow Tempo)
November spells sweet memory, the season blue remains


Your yellow hair is like the sunlight, however sweet it shines
Bit by the cold of December, I'm warm beside your smile
(Resume Tempo)

Oh lady tell me I'm not leaving, you're everything I dream
I'm killing myself thinking, I've fallen like the leaves
I'm killing myself thinking, I've fallen like the leaves
(Slow Tempo and end on C)

5. My Losing Bet

G Bm C D

  G      Bm  C      D            G
I waited for you, a hard thing to do
    Bm         C    D           G      Bm            C   D  
knowin' we're through, and no I know I don't have to choose,
           G           Bm       C   D
to welcome you back or push you away
    G          Bm        C   D               G  Bm      C   D
but wait we're not there yet, and though I'm losing the bet
                  G
there's still the sunset

(Notes walking up string)
G A B

C            G               D                  G
I felt so surprise, when she arrived, wearing a smile,
C                  G                       D
smiles soon turn to tears, out on her back pier,
                                   G
after all the love how how'd I end here.
    Bm     C    D
oh lord oh lord...

6. Beside the Yellow Line

G C G C G C D

G
In time, won't be long
C
until we meet again, except we just be friends
G
my god yeah I know
C
that's just the way it goes out here on the road
   D       C      G
beside the yellow line

'Bout five years ago,
I came about this way, but I doubt they'll know my face
The land hasn't changed
The stars still pierce the black, and I'm glad that I came back
Beside the yellow line

The mind of a girl,
It's hard to understand, but I guess 'cause I'm a man
Her heart fears are unknown,
Until I am gone, gotta leave her all alone
Beside the yellow line

And the call of the road,
Unlike the railroad tracks, unlike the airplane path
Her voice floats, through the land
and it takes me by the hand, so once again I stand
Beside the yellow line

7. Old Wyom
   Tuning: EADGBE
Tabbed By: Skylar25


A
Well I dreamed of how our life would be, oh yeah
E
Lovin' and a-kissin' 'neath an old oak tree, uh huh
        Bm          C#m           Ebm           D
I'd be singing you a song that was twenty lines long
    A              E                          A
and catching sweet kisses you blow way out in Wyom

I work my day to come home to you, oh yeah
So you can do whatever you wanna do, uh huh
With your big brown eyes and your curly brown hair,
I'm doing the best I can do just to try to not stare

    E        D      A
My God, your loveliness

Gotta feelin your man he won't like the news, oh no
Ain't gonna like it when he has to choose, oh no
With you could be one and never be apart (?)
I can feel it in my mind I can feel it in my soul in my heart

   Bm    D          A
Oh baby please come around

Was that your man he's your fiancé, oh yeah
The one to tie the knot each and every day uh huh
I gotta get up the nerve to pick up the phone
It's you sweet mama I'm-a gonna carry you back home!

    E       D  A
Way out to old Wyom

I prob'ly shoulda thought about lettin' you know, uh huh
If I love you like I do I shoulda told you so, uh huh
Well I think about you each and every day,
It's just my knees are gettin' weak when I try to say

    Bm    D        A
Oh baby, please be mine

Gotta feelin' that I'm barkin' up and empty tree
How could someone so beautiful think about me?
Put my tail between my legs and turn my back
Try on my trusty ramblin' sack

    E      D    A
I'm off to old Wyom

8. Closing Night
   Tuning: EADGBE
Tabbed By: Macheeoo


Intro Chords:
C   Am   F   G     x1

   C         Am        G          C
The show was over it's all in the name
  C           Am        G              C
It never was before but this ain't the same
   C       Am        G         C
So try to imagine a time and a place
          C     Am          F   G    C
Where the enemy won and the hero was slain


And poetic justice burns in the minds
Of five diying soldiers on the front lines
With nobody's singing in nobody's ears
No one's disappointed, nobody hears

I know a lady, promise her name
The price of her visit suffering and pain
And we gladly waited and we gladly paid
We watched the sun rise, she never came

An electric current moves us around
We sank to our knees to worship the sound
But nobody told us that we'd rise again
Imagine a hero unable to win 
Imagine a hero unable to win
