Rock Salt And Nails

Buddy Miller

 GCG
 On the banks of the river where the willow hang down
 EmCG
Where the wild birds all warble with a low moaning sound
 EmCG
Down in the hollow where the water runs cold
 FCG
It was there I first listened to the lies that you told
 CG
Now I lie on my bed and I see your sweet face
 EmCG
And the past I remember time cannot erase
 EmCG
The letter you wrote me it was written in shame
 FCG
And I know that your conscience still echos my name
 GCG
 Now the nights are so lonely   lord sorrow runs deep
 EmCG
Nothing is worse than a night without sleep
 EmCG
I walk out alone and look at the sky
 FCG
Too empty to sing too loneseome to cry
 CG
Now if the ladies were blackbirds if the ladies were thrushes
 EmCG
I'd lie there for hours in the chilly cold marshes
 EmCG
If the ladies were squirrels  with them high bushy tails
 FCG
I'd fill up my shotgun with rock salt and nails
 FCG
I'd fill up my shotgun with rock salt and nails
