Alterations and Corrections Welcome!!!!
Ok guys this is one of the first couple songs I have tried to figure out.
Emmylou is great and this song and the new CD proves it. This might not be
correct but if works good for an acoustic song, particularly with a guy and
girl harmony. Good luck and happy pickin'
y[C]ou don't love me, this i know[F]
do[G]n't need a bible to tell me so[C]
I h[C]ung around a little too long[F]
I w[G]as good but now i'm g[C]one
CHORUS
like the buf[F]falo
that boy from tu[C]pelo
any way the wind can[G] blow
that's where I'm[C] gonna go
I'll be gone like a [F]five and dime
It'll be the[C] perfect crime
just ask the boy[G] from tupelo
he's the king and he[C] oughta know
the s[C]houlder i've been l[F]eanin on
is the c[G]oldest place i'v[C]e ever know
theres n[C]othin left for m[F]e round here
looks li[G]ke it's time to [C]disapear
like the buf[F]falo
that boy from tu[C]pelo
the old wall down in[G] jericho
maybelle on the [C]radio
I'll be gone like th[F]e five and dime
It'll be the perfect[C] crime
just ask the boy fro[G]m tupelo
he's the king and he oug[C]hta know
you [C]don't love me, this [F]i know
