Looking for a Way Out/There was a Time
Sauget Wind EP
Uncle Tupelo
By: Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy

These chords are for the earlier version of the song, when it was called
"There was a Time"- this is how it sounds on the b-side of Sauget Wind.

Intro:
D G/D Bm G Bm A G D G/D

D                     Bm
When you find you can somehow
G                    D
Make it like all the rest
Bm                                            A
You won't need to scrounge around for someone else
     G           D
Torn between the unknown
        G              D
And the place you call home
        F#m                          A
And the life you want but have never known

            D
There was a time
          G/D                Bm
You could put it out of your mind
    G            Bm
And leave it all behind
            A
There was a time
                 G      D G/D
And that time is gone

What has life for 50 years
In this town done for you
Except to earn your name and place on a barstool
You spend your whole life in this county
You've never been out of state
You say you're going to make it out before it's too late

There was a time
You could put it out of your mind
And leave it all behind
There was a time
And that time is gone

            D                 D/G                 Bm
There was a time when nothing seemed to make much sense
           G           Bm
Now that's turned more intense
                                A
And all the grudges you've kept around
        G       D     G/D
Now are nowhere to be found

(Hammer on the 6th string, 2nd fret - then hammer 5th string, second fret,
then play the E note, 4th string, second fret, then play D chord)

Remember when you didn't have
To look ahead or behind you
There was always something right there to do
But now it's locked (maybe "life"- I dunno) in some kind of trap
Looking for a way out
We keep moving on that's what it's all about

There was a time
You could put it out of your mind
And leave it all behind
There was a time
And that time is gone
