[Verse]
E                                                          A                E
Up in your nephew's room, playing on his cousin's guitar I wrote a song for you
E                                            A               E
You have done drove off everything I need, my box and my tumbleweed
  F#m          A             Bm7
I picked it up on the way to flagstaff years ago
      F#m           A              Bm7
I was hanging on to everything you had the grace to show

[Chorus]
         E                  F#m          A                  E
You were young and you were hungry, Lord knows I was hungry too
        E             F#m           A                       E
We were both flat out starving for something worth while to lose
            E                F#m       A                  E
You were my bread I was your honey, up against a dark red wine
          E              F#m                 A              E
Trying to hold on to the lovely, through the bitter of hard times

[Verse 2]
E                                                      A                E
Looking over the hill at the lights of your hometown I wrote a song for you
E                                                         A                E
Thinking of the way we met, a girl home from school and a boy just passing through
  F#m            A           Bm7
I got a job as a cutman at a house just down the road
   F#m            A                 Bm7
I'd never been to town before and I didnt know a soul

[Chorus]
      E               F#m          A                     E
I was young and I was hungry, Lord knows you were hungry too
        E             F#m           A                       E
We were both flat out starving for something worth while to lose
            E                F#m       A                  E
You were my bread I was your honey, up against a dark red wine
          E              F#m                 A              E
Trying to hold on to the lovely, through the bitter of hard times

[Bridge]
F#m         A              Bm7
Agate white wedding dress, turquoise on your ring
F#m              A             Bm7
Upright bass and violin as you walked the aisle to me

[Chorus]
      E               F#m          A                     E
I was young and I was hungry, Lord knows you were hungry too
        E             F#m           A                       E
We were both flat out starving for something worth while to lose
            E                F#m       A                  E
You were my bread I was your honey, up against a dark red wine
          E              F#m                 A              E
Trying to hold on to the lovely, through the bitter of hard times
