Happy Woman Blues-crd  Lucinda Williams

[E]Tryin' hard to be a happy woman.
But sometimes life just overcomes me,
[A7]Everyday I'm workin' just to pay my d[E]ue[E7]s.[E] [E7] [E] [E7] [E]
[B7]Lay down at night, my [A7]mind is so confu[E]sed[E7].[E] [E7] [E] [E7] [E]
[E]Goin' down south with the New York City blues,
Gotta hit the road before I blow a fuse,
I might [A7]buy me a Cadillac or a Chevrol[E]et[E7].[E] [E7] [E] [E7] [E]
[B7]I don't care what model as [A7]long as it takes me a[E]wa[E7]y[E] [E7] [E] [E7]
SOLO
[E]I've been hiding my heart in a trunk.
Can you come see me when my ship has sunk
[A7]You can give me loovin, that I can't re[E]fu[E7]se,[E] [E7] [E] [E7] [E]
And [B7]love is the one thing that's [A7]sure to cure my [E]bl[E7]ues[E].[E7] [E] [E7]
[E]Goin' down the road with a heave heart,
Tryin' to find lightness in the dark,
[A7]Tryin' to live my life, tryin' to get satisf[E]ie[E7]d.[E] [E7] [E] [E7] [E]
[B7]My mind is in the city but my [A7]heart is in the countr[E]ys[E7]ide[E].[E7] [E] [E7] [E]
SOLO
[E]Tryin' hard to be a happy woman.
But sometimes life just overcomes me,
[A7]Everyday I'm workin' just to pay my d[E]ue[E7]s.[E] [E7] [E] [E7] [E]
[B7]Lay down at night, my [A7]mind is so confu[E]sed[E7].[E] [E7] [E] [E7] [E]
[B7]Lay down at night, my [A7]mind is so confu[E]sed[E7].[E] [E7] [E] [E7] [E]
