Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Lament  Cowboy Junkies


[E]Baby's in the back lot [A]breathin' real heavy
Said the [B]boys in the alley wouldn't [A]leave her [E]alone
[E]Mama did her makeup in a [A]terrible hurry
She [B]finally got ready but the [A]boys were [E]gone
[A]Mama don't you worry, [B]night's approachin'
There's a [A]hole in heaven where some [B]sin slips [E]through
[E]Just close your eyes, and [A]dream real steady
[B]Maybe just a little will [A]spill on [E]you
[E]  Chorus:
[E]Dark don't [A]lie[B]
Dreams come true
[A]All it takes is one or [E]two
Verse: "Old lady rose, lookin' down her nose..."
Chorus: "Won't be long, I won't be gone..."
Verse: "Those in the know, say so it goes..."
Chorus: "Snake eyes cry, boxcars sigh..."
Chorus: "Dark don't lie, dreams come true..."
(then repeat the A E sequence for: "Maybe just a few will see you through")
(and repeat it twice more without words for the Outtro)
E 022100 A 002220 B 224442
E* means that the E is decorated by futzing it with an Em (as you can
hear in the song). There is a lot of sliding in the song. Not
currently possessing a slide, or knowing how to tune the guitar to an
appropriately to slide to this song, I just make do by sometimes sliding
the A up to 004440. It sounds pretty good for the chorus.
Apologies in advance for lyrical errors. By the way, does anyone out
there know "Murder, Tonight, in the Trailer Park?"
P.S. This group has brought me closer to a lot of cool music. Thought
it high time I started to return the favor. Thanks!
