Sweet Lorraine  Patty Griffin

INTRO: G Cadd9 D Dsus4 2x
Sweet Lor[G]raine the [Cadd9]fiery haired [D]brown eyed scheme[Dsus4]r
Who [G]came from a [Cadd9]long line of [D]drinkers and dreame[Dsus4]rs
Who [G]knew that [Cadd9]sunshine don't [D]hold up to dark[Dsus4]
Whose [G]businesses [Cadd9]fail who [D]sleep in the park[Dsus4]
Lo-[G]rraine who [Cadd9]spoke of [D]paintings in Paris[Dsus4]
And [G]outlandish [Cadd9]things to her [D]family just to scare us[Dsus4]
Whose [G]heart went [Cadd9]pokin' where [D]it shouldn't ought[Dsus4]
whose [Cadd9]mother could only, [G]spit at the [D]thought
Lor[Cadd9]raine, sweet [G]Lorraine[Cadd9] [D] [Dsus4] [G] [Cadd9] [D]
[Dsus4]Her [G]father would [Cadd9]tear out like a [D]page of the Bible
Then [G]he'd burn down [Cadd9]the house to [D]announce his arrival[Dsus4]
Her m[G]other was [Cadd9]working and [D]never was home[Dsus4]
Lorr[G]aine carved [Cadd9]out a little [D]life of her own[Dsus4]
Lor[G]raine started [Cadd9]working, Lor[D]raine went to scho[Dsus4]ol
Her m[G]other threw stones [Cadd9]at her on the [D]day that she move[Dsus4]d
Well now [G]isn't that [Cadd9]a very strange [D]thing to do[Dsus4]
For [Cadd]someone who never really[G] wanted y[D]ou
Lorra[Cadd9]ine, sweet [G]Lorra[Cadd9]ine[D] [D]
Her [Am]daddy calls her a s[C]lut and a w***e
On the [G]night before her [D]wedding day
[Am] The very next morning, [C]at the church
Her [D]daddy gave, Lor[Cadd9]raine away, Lo[Cadd9]rraine away
[Cadd9]Lorraine, sweet [G]Lorraine[Cadd9] [D] [Dsus4]
In the[G] battle of [Cadd9]time, in the b[D]attle of will[Dsus4]
It's [G]only your [Cadd9]hope and your [D]heart that gets kille[Dsus4]d
And it's [G]harder and [Cadd9]harder Lorraine, to [D]believe in magic[Dsus4]
when what [Cadd9]came before you was [G]so very [D]tragic
Lo[C9]rraine, sweet Lor[G]raine[Cadd9] [D] [Dsus4] [G] [Cadd9] [D] [Dsus4]
Sweet Lo[G]rrain[Cadd9]e Yeahh[D]hhhh[Dsus4]hhhh
Sweet Lo[G]rrain[Cadd9]e yeahhh[D]hhhh[Dsus4]h
Sweet Lo[G]rrain[Cadd9]e, ohhhh[D]hhhh[Dsus4]hhhhh
Sweet Lo[G]rrain[Cadd9]e Yeahh[D]hhhh[Dsus4]hhhh[D]
[-] [FADE]
