 "I Was In The House When The House Burned Down"
  From "Life'll Kill Ya"

 
  Use a Capo on the third fret.
  
  Intro: | G5  | X2

  G5  
  I had the shit till it all got smoked
  D
  I kept the promise till the vow got broke
  D
  I had to drink from the lovin' cup
    G5
  I stood on the banks till the river rose up
  C
  I saw the bride in her wedding gown
  G5                           D             C Em D G
  I was in the house when the house burned down

    | C Em D G X3  |  G |

  I may be old and I may be bent
  But I had the money till it all got spent
  I had the money till they made me pay
  Then I had the sense to be on my way
  I had to stay in the underground
  I was in the house when the house burned down

   | C Em D G X3|
  
    Chorus:
    
       C
       I was in the house when the house burned down
       G5
       I met the man with the thorny crown
           D
       I helped Him carry his cross through town
       G5                            D
       I was in the house when the house burned down

       Harmonica Break: |C Em D G X3| G  D X2| *drumfill*

       Chorus

       Repeat verse 1, End on G

I considered chording it that way, but Warren seems to have played it in open G (and played it without the capo live)
