BRUISED ORANGE

John Prine

 G
   My heart's in the ice house
2) I've been brought down to zero
come hill or come valley
2) pulled out and put back there
 C
   like a long ago Sunday
2) I sat on a park bench
when I walked through the alley
2) kissed the girl with the black hair
 G
   on a cold winters morning
2) and my head shouted down
 D
   to the church house
2) to my heart
 G
   just to shovel some snow
2) you better look out below
I heard sirens on the train tracks
2) Well it ain't such a long drop
howl naked , gettin nuder
2) don't stammer, don't studder
 C
   an alter boy had been hit
2) from the diamonds in the sidewalk
by a local comuter
2) to the dirt in the gutter
 G
   just from walking with his back turned
2) you'll be carrying those bruises
 D
   to a train
2) to remind you
 GG7
   that was coming so slow 
2) wherever you go
(CHORUS)
 C
   You can gaze out the window
get mad and get madder
 G
   throw your hands in the air
and say what does it matter
 D
   but it don't do no good
 C
   to get angry
 GG7
   so help me I know 
 C
   for a heart stained with anger
grows weak and grows bitter
 G
   you become your own prisoner
as you watch yourself sit there
 D
   wrapped up in a trap
 C
   of your very own
 G
   chain of sorrow
3) (Repeat first verse and chorus)
