Undone  Robert Earl Keen

Written by: Robert Earl Keen
CD: Robert Earl Keen - Picnic
Intro: C D G C D
[D]Fire one up and you toss one down
[C]Everybody knows you been downtown
[D]Been downtown late last night
[C]Bust your head in a barroom fight
[D]Fightin' with your brother, fightin' with your wife
[C]Seems you've been fighting every day of your life
[D]Can't stand still, still can't run
[C]You put it all together but it come un[D]done[G] [C] [D] [C] [D]
[D]Your soul is junk, your brain is dust
[C]All of your memories are eaten up with rust
[D]Your nightmare's real, dreams too stark
[C]You love the night but you hate the dark
[D]Your momma, your daddy, little sister too
[C]Told you a secret they were countin' on you
[D]You were dying to tell but your dad said son
[C]Button your lip but it come un[D]done, un[G]done, un[C]don[D]e[C] [D]
[D]So they turned you out when you turned them in
[C]They told you don't come back again
[D]Now the years stack up like old beer cans
[C]Dead end jobs, payment plans
[D]Broke down trucks, welfare checks
[C]Child support, back-seat sex
[D]You'd kill yourself but you hocked your gun
[C]You built a noose but it come un[D]done, un[G]done, un[C]don[D]e, un[C]don[D]e
[D]So you're livin' in a shack but you wanna be rich
[C]And you would if it wasn't for that sonovabitch
[D]The sonovabitch, the dirty old whore
[C]The butcher, the baker, the grocery store
[D]You hate them, they hate you
[C]What in the world are you gonna do?
[D]It ain't your fault but they need someone
[C]To blame it on when they come un[D]done, un[G]done, un[C]don[D]e, un[C]don[D]e
[D]Now the storm's comin' in, the sky's turned black
[C]It's too late now, you can't turn back
[D]Lightnin' strikes on the telephone wire
[C]You're drunk as a skunk, your shack's on fire
[D]The wife took the baby and the other two kids
[C]The dogs are a-howlin' and the chickens are dead
[D]It's your last night out and you're gonna have fun
C (play then mute)
They'll read it in the papers when you come
un[D]done, un[G]done, un[C]don[D]e, un[C]don[D]e
Un[C]don[D]e, un[C]don[D]e[C] [D] [G] [C] [D]
