Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Nashville   Indigo Girls

-------------------

[Actually in B; capo 2.] 
[In the instrumental parts, futz around with the chords. The A sounds good
with an Asus4 in the middle of the measure, and the E probably has an Esus4
in the middle. ALL of the D's are actually mixtures of D's and D(9)'s,
probably with more D(9) than D.]


[A] [intE]ro] [D]    [D]      [A]    [E]    [D]    [D]
As I [A]drive from your[E] pearly gates
I real[D]ize that I [D]just can't stay
All those mo[A]untains, they kept you[E] locked inside
And hid the[D] truth from m[D]y slighted eyes
[E]  I came to you with a h[E]alf-open heart
[D]Dreams upon my back, ill[D]usions of a brand new start
Nas[A]hville, can't I [E]carry the load?
Is it m[D]y fault I can't [D]reap what I sow?
Nas[A]hville, did you give me[E] half a chance
With your so[D]uthern style, and your[D] hidden dance aw[A]ay
Dance a[E]way, now you dance aw[D]ay  [D]
All those voices, they whisper through my walls
They talk of falling fast, they say I'm losing it all
They say I'm running blind to a love of my own
But I'll be walking proud I'm saving what I still own
I fell on my knees to kiss your land
But you are so far down, and I can't even see to stand

Nashville, you forgot the human race
You see with half a mind what colors hide the face
Nashville, I'd like to know your fate
I'd like to stay a while but I've seen your lowered state today
I've seen them today, honey I swear I've seen 'em today

[A] [insE]trum[D]enta[D]l]    [A]    [E]    [D]    [D]

Now I'm leaving, I've got all these debts to pay
You know we all have our dues, I'll pay in some other place
I'd never ask that you pay me back
We all arrive with more, I left with less than I had
Your town is made for people passing through
A last chance for a cause I thought I knew

But Nashville, you tell me what you are gonna do
With all your Southern style, it'll never pull you through
Nashville, I can't place no blame
But if you forget my face, I'll never call your name again
No, never again, no, never, never again

E [bold]              E [beld]
I fell on my knees to kiss your land
n.c. n.c.
But you are so far down, and I can't even see to stand

And Nashville, you forgot the human race
You see with half a mind what colors hide the face
Nashville, I'd like to know your fate
I'd like to stay a while but I've seen your lowered state today
I've seen 'em today, honey, I swear I've seen 'em today
I'm running away, I'm running away, I'm running, I'm running, I'm running away
