SIX BLOCKS AWAY (Lucinda Williams)
----------------------------------

[Actually in D; capo at tbe 2nd fret] 
  [C] [intF]ro] [C] [F] [C] [F] [G] [G]
  He [Am]sleeps all alone on [G]2nd Street
With a [Am]roof over his head and [G]food to eat
But [C]he can hardly make it [F]day to day cuz
[C]Everything he wants is [F]six blocks away,  [F]   six blocks a[G]way[G]
He's got a regular job and it pays the rent
In a donut shop on 3rd and 10th
But he doesn't understand why she turned him away
He can hear her heart beat six blocks away, six blocks away
  [C]Six blocks away, d[F]irty old street
[C]Six blocks away, h[F]e can hear her heart beat
[C]Six blocks away, d[F]irty old street
[C]Six blocks away, h[F]e can hear her heart beat  [F]   six blocks a[G]way[G]
[Guitar solo; same cbords as verse] 
He walks real fast down the dirty street
He turns his eyes from the people he meets
It hurts so bad, what can he say
He sends her a message six blocks away, six blocks away
Six blocks away, dirty old street; six blocks away, he can hear her heart beat
Six blocks away, dirty old street; six blocks away, he can hear her heart beat
Six blocks away
  [C]   Six blocks a[F]way[C] [F]
