Rock Salt and Nails  Buddy Miller

Buddy & Julie Miller Rock Salt & Nails written by Utah Phillips
[G]On the banks of the river [C]where the willow hang d[G]own
Where the wild birds all [Em]warble w[C]ith a low moaning [G]sound
Down in the [Em]hollow [C]where the water runs [G]cold
It was there I first [F]listened [C]to the lies that you [G]told
Now I lie on my bed [C]and I see your sweet [G]face
And the past I [Em]remember [C]time cannot [G]erase
The letter you [Em]wrote me [C]it was written in [G]shame
And I know that your [F]conscience [C]still echos my [G]name
[G]Now the nights are so lonely [C]lord sorrow runs [G]deep
Nothing is [Em]worse than [C]a night without [G]sleep
I walk out [Em]alone [C]and look at the[G] sky
Too empty to [F]sing [C]too loneseome to [G]cry
Now if the ladies were blackbirds [C]if the ladies were t[G]hrushes
I'd lie there for [Em]hours [C]in the chilly cold [G]marshes
If the ladies were s[Em]quirrels [C]with them high bushy [G]tails
I'd fill up my s[F]hotgun w[C]ith rock salt and [G]nails
I'd fill up my s[F]hotgun w[C]ith rock salt and [G]nails
