Angry Young Man

Steve Earle

 [Intro]      C - G - C - G - C - G - D - G


 G
(Verse1)Got a lot of memories tied up in this place
 CG
        So much time spent in so little space
 G
        What looked like the world through the eyes of a child
 D
        Kind of closes in on you after awhile
 EmG
        It's a place to grow up and a place to grow old
 CG
        You keep your mouth shut and you do what you're told
 G
        I told mama the day that I ran
 DG
        This ain't no place for an angry young man

 CG
          Mama if you could see me right now
 CG
          You'd be so sure you failed me somehow
 EmC
          Mama you never could understand
 DG
          There ain't no peace for an angry young man

 C-G-D-G

 G
        A cheap hotel a long way from my home

 CG
        So many people make you feel so alone

 G
        Dreams die easy out here in these streets

 D
        And hearts grow cold in the city heat

 EmG
        I ain't never been the patient kind

 CG
        I got to live like I please or die tryin'

 G
        At a filling station with a gun in my hand

 DG
        The only way for an angry young man

 CG
          Mama if you could see me right now

 CG
          You'd be so sure you failed me somehow

 EmC
          Mama you never could understand

 DG
          There ain't no peace for an angry young man

 C-G-D-G
 G
        Got a lot of memories tied up in this place

 CG
        Tonight they're starin' me right in the face

 G
        A lonely grave on the outskirts of town
 D
                                            It's three in the morning, ain't no one around

 EmG
        Just like a ghost I come out of the night

 CG
        But I'll be gone before the morning light
 G
                                            Mama I hope that you understand

 DG
        This ain't no place for an angry young man

 CG
          Mama if you could see me right now

 CG
          You'd be so sure you failed me somehow

 EmC
          Mama you never could understand

 DG
          There ain't no peace for an angry young man

 CG
          Mama if you could see me right now

 CG
          You'd be so sure you failed me somehow

 EmC
          Mama you never could understand

 DG
          There ain't no peace for an angry young man
