Title: Trouble
Artist: by the Jayhawks

(Perlman-Louris)

This is one of my all time favorite songs by the Jayhawks and is definitely
one of the better songs on "Sound of Lies". My guitar teacher helped me
figure it out, so I can't take all the credit.
Intro (play twice):
 
 e----9-----------9------------10--------------------------------------------
 B----10----10---10-----10-----12------12----12s14---12--10-------------------
 G----9-- 9-------9--9---------11--11------------------------11--------------
 D---------------------------------------------------------------------------
 A---------------------------------------------------------------------------
 E---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Verse:
[A]Trouble
that's what w[C#]e had
D*
And everything that goes around
Dm* (Dm lick) A Dm lick (while in Dm bar chord)
Comes around in a bittersweet lament
 
 C#m G e--------5-7-8-7-5

Well my heart's already broken down
[E]Looking for a sweeter sound
[E]Looking for a brighter day
I'm fac[A]e down on the pavement[C#]
D* Dm* (Dm lick) A
Step aside, see the light, close your eyes and let us live our lives
As they ra[C#m]lly around the sinking ship[G]
[E]Looking for a better way
[E]It was just the blind leading the blind [A] oo[A/G#]oooo y[F#m]eaaaaah[A/E]
[D] I got my [D/C#]feet back on the grou[Bm]nd[D/A]
Chorus:
[C#m]It's better than being alone[Bm]
[C#m]It's better than being alone[Bm] [E]
[A]Funny
We tried it all[C#]
D*
Just standing on the brink
Dm (Dm lick) A
Looking down, down, down
[A]There's a li[C#m]ttle bit of truth in every lie[G]
[E]You were so above us all
[E]It was just the blind leading the blind [A] [A/G#]oooo yaa[F#m]aah[A/E]
[D]I got my fe[D/C#]et back on the gro[Bm]und[D/A]
Chorus:
[C#m]It's better than being a[Bm]lone
[C#m]It's better than being [Bm] alone
Bridge:
[Bm]We were stranded on the vine[D]
Destitute and shak[A]en
Looking for a si[F#m]gn
[Bm]Left hung out to dr[D]y
Our backs against the wall[A]
Stoned out of our, min[F#m]ds[D] [E]
