her dresser drawers turned upside down.

Anna's neighbor, Peg, identifies the body

lets out a hollow kind of sound.

Homicide is tying yellow ribbons

west, we're gonna make a fresh start.

I've been saving pennies,
	     G
been looking forward to this day.

or are you gonna stay?

hotel neon fights the dark.

TV set in the corner, they're talking murder on the late-night news.
F
He turns down the sound, waits for the sports.
E		       B		  E
He only wants to know "did I win or did I lose?"

There's been a murder in the trailer park tonight.
E       A	       E
Murder in the trailer park.



The song sounds right except for the first B (and its repetitions), which I
think sounds a little off.  It must be some B variation.  If you can
correct me, I can go to my grave happy.
