Easy Come Easy Go  Hayes Carll

Capo 3
C/B - x20010
[C]Jamie was a barmaid at the Underground Longrail
Seems [Em]like every Friday evenin'
She'd find herself in jail
Not a [Am]friend this side of Houston
With the time to throw her bail
But she'll be [F]fine, she'll be [G]fine
Spent a lifetime walkin'
Through the walls of a broken home
Not a man round here still standin
For the girl to call her own
Every time she tried to hold him
She just ended up alone
But there's still time, there's still time
Davey drove a taxi through the streets of Boston town
Like the billboards up above him
The world just wore him down
Only soul he'd ever cared for
Was the one he'd never found
But he'll be fine, he'll be fine
Broken half of winter with a wind chill ten below
Davey sittin in is kitchen laughin'
'Bout how the world had done him so
Then the postman burst his bubble
With a letter from below
And now it's time, now it's time
And the[F]re's a lot of [G]people [C]runnin'[C/B] around [Am]
[F]Not quite [C]sure which way to [G]go
[F]But as for [G]me I [C]think I [C/B]finally [Am]found
[F]It's just easy [G]come and easy [C]go [G] Jamie grabbed a bottle threw her apron on the bar
Packed her whole world in a suitcase
And tossed it in the car
Woke up in Texarkana
Wonderin' how she got this far
And on her own, on her own
Stranger at the motel let Jamie stay for free
She was gone before the daybreak
On her way to Tennessee
Lookin' to make the whole world over
Into a place she wants to be
But not alone, not alone
Davey left his taxi in the bottom of a Beantown lake
He said this whole world's full of chance
And this is one I gotta take
So he caught the line to Nashville
To finally find his break
And make a home, make a home
As the train flew out of Boston, his whole world passed him by
He said I spent a lifetime runnin'
And now's the time to try
If I can't find someone to hold me
My dreams will surely die
And I'll be gone, I'll be gone
When [Am]Davey hit the pavement
the [F]sky was almost grey
He lit a [C]smoke off of the sidewalk
To [G]drive the storm away
And when [Am]Jamie turned the corner
With the [F]world upon her brow
Davey [C]said I must be dreamin'
How [G]could this happen now
And [Am]then she walked right towards him
Looked him [F]right up in the eye
[C]Davey reached out for forever
And [G]Jamie walked on by
