No Place To Fall

Townes Van Zandt

 If I had no place to fall
 GD
and I needed to
 EmG
could I count on you
 D
to lay me down?

 DDmaj7D7
 I'd never tell you no lies
 GD
I don't believe it's wise
 EmG
you got pretty eyes
 D
won't you spin me 'round

 EmA
I ain't much of a lover it's true
 EmF#m
I'm here then I'm gone
 DE
and I'm forever blue
 A
but I'm sure wanting you

Skies full of silver and gold
try to hide the sun
but it can't be done
least not for long

And if we help each other grow
while the light of day
smiles down our way
then we can't go wrong

Time, she's a fast old train
she's here then she's gone
and she won't come again
won't you take my hand

If I had no place to fall
and I needed to
could I count on you
to lay me down?

The first three chords are as follows. When playing
the D7 there is a one strum hammer on the High E, 7th fret.
Listen to the Live at the Old Quarter version to hear this.
The rest of the chords are played in the first position.

An Additional note here on playing this song:

One small addition as to how
TvZ played it. The fourth part of the first line of each verse was not
a D7; instead he held down the D, G, B and E strings at the fifth fret,
then hammered on the 7th fret of the E string and then pulled off. It's
more of an A minor 7th than a D7.
