††† C - D - C - D


†† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††- D

1. ††††Another pleasant day in the countryside

C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††- D

††† has ended up in tears on a stormy night,

C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††D†††††††††††† G††††††††† ††††C

††† ícause you canít follow my directions home, but donít stop now.


††† Em†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††- D

2. ††††††God knows where the satellitesí taking us,

Em††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††- D

††† we canít tell what is right in front of us,

††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††† ††D

††† but I hang on every word.


G†††††† †††††††C†††††††† ††G†† †††††††††††C

Donít stop now, no, donít stop now !

††††††††††††††† Am†††††††††††††††††† ††††C

Give me something I can write about !


†††† Em†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††- D

3. ††††††You get fooled by the lightning every time,

Em†††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††- D

††† see the after-image of my outline,

††††††††††††††††††† C †††††††††††††††††††††††††††D

††† then you turn the wrong way round.


G††††††††††††† C††††††††† ††G†† †††††††††††C

Donít stop now, no, donít stop now !

††††††††††††††† Am†††††††††††††††††††††† C

Give me something I can write about !

††††††††††††††† Am†††††††††††††††††††† C

Give me something I can cry about.


††† Em†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††- G

+†††††In a church house ten miles out of town,


††† is the devil going to track me down ?










Em††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††- G

††† Then youíll travel through a tunnel in the trees,


††† just remember thatís how you get to me,

F#†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† - F#†††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††D

††† thereís no number on the house, †††††††the birds are headed south.

†††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††C†††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††D

††† Sometimes youíll have to turn the wrong way round,

††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††C†††††††††††††††††††† ††††D

††† sometimes you get too close to nowhere now.


††† G††† C

+††††† Restless, hopeful in silence I wait

G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††C

††† with a blank piece of paper on the top of my head,

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am†††††††††††††††††††††† C

††† and all I want is something I can write about,

†††††††††††††††††††††† Am††††††††††††††††† †††C

††† all I want is something I can cry about.

†††††† C†††† D†††† - Em

††† Ooh, ooh.
