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
   like a [C]long ago Sunday
2) I sat on a park bench
when I walked through the alley
2) kissed the girl with the black hair
   on a [G]cold winters morning
2) and my head shouted down
   to the [D]church house
2) to my heart
   just to shovel some [G]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
   an [C]alter boy had been hit
2) from the diamonds in the sidewalk
by a local comuter
2) to the dirt in the gutter
   just from [G]walking with his back turned
2) you'll be carrying those bruises
   to a [D]train
2) to remind you
   that was coming so [G]slow[G7]
2) wherever you go
(CHORUS)
   You can [C]gaze out the window
get mad and get madder
   throw your [G]hands in the air
and say what does it matter
   but it [D]don't do no good
   to get [C]angry
   so help me I [G]know[G7]
   for a [C]heart stained with anger
grows weak and grows bitter
   you [G]become your own prisoner
as you watch yourself sit there
   wrapped up in a [D]trap
   of your very [C]own
   chain of [G]sorrow
3) (Repeat first verse and chorus)
