                  Intro/Bridge:  A(hammer the B string)
                                 D7(h B string) E(h D string)

                  VERSE 1
A                                    E
The money would be pretty good if a quart of milk was still a dollar
Bm                                       A
Or even if a quart of milk was still a quart
And the hours well, I don't mind
How they creep on by like an old love of mine
      Bm                    E                         A
Its the years that simply disappear that are doin' me in
D          E                     A                D
Guess I married too young, yeah 19 was just too young
Bm                                       A
But sometimes you meet someone and your guts just burn
 D                            E
Its not that I dont love him anymore
           A                           D
Its just that when I hear him coming through that front door
  Bm             E                      A
My heart doesnt race like it did once before

  D                   Dm               A
Mmmmmm... But I got a horse out in the country
      Bm              E     D               A 
ahhhh yea.. I get to see him every second Sunday
D                Bm        Dm                A
He comes when I call him, Yeah he knows his name
Bm                 E                Bm             E    A
Someday day I'll saddle up and the two of us will ride away 

                   INTRO/BRIDGE(run it off the "A" at the end of the chorus)

                   VERSE 2
This weather I could almost stand
If the sun would shine a little brighter
Bm                                 A
Or even if the sun would shine at all
D                   E                     A                D  
But lately it just seems to me that this life has lost its mystery
         Bm                          E                      A
and these cold fall mornings seem to bite just a little bit harder
Bm                         Dbm
And all my friends have settled down
              Bm                      A
Become their mothers and fathers without a sound
Except for Cathy
She bought a one way 
subway ticket
and left us all behind

                   LAST VERSE
This town wouldnt be so bad
If a girl could trust her instincts
Bm            E                 A
Or even if a girl could trust a boy
