Iowa  Dar Williams

CAPO: 3rd Fret
INTRO: G D Em C G D G C-G
I?ve never had a [D]way with [Em]women
But the [C]hills of Iowa[G] make me [D]wish that I [G]could[C-G]
And I?ve never found a [D]way to say I [Em]love you
But [C]if the chance came [G]by, oh [D]I, I [G]would[C-G]
But way [Em]back where I come from, we [C]never mean to [G]bother
We don?t [C]like to make our [Am]passions other [D]peoples' concern
And we [G]walk in the [D]world of safe [Em]people
And at [C]night we walk in[G]to our [D]houses and [G]burn[C-G]
CHORUS:
Iowa, oh [D]ooh
Io[Em]wa, oh, [C]oooh, ooh, [G]oh, I[D]-Io[G]wa[C-G]
Iowa, oh [D]ooh
Io[Em]wa, oh, [C]oooh, ooh, [G]oh, I[D]-Io[G]wa[C-G]
How I long to [D]fall just a little bit[Em]
To [C]dance out of the [G]lines and [D]stray from the [G]light[C-G]
But I fear that to [D]fall in love with [Em]you
Is to [C]fall from a [G]great and [D]gruesome [G]height[C-G]
So you know, I [Em]asked a friend about it, on a [C]bad day
Her husband had just [Am]left her
She sat down on the [G]chair he left be[D]hind
She said,[G] "What is [D]love, where did it [Em]get me?"
"Who[C]ever thought of [G]love is [D]no friend of [G]mine"[C-G]
CHORUS:
Iowa, oh [D]ooh
Io[Em]wa, oh, [C]oooh, ooh, [G]oh, I[D]-Io[G]wa[C-G]
Iowa, oh [D]ooh
Io[Em]wa, oh, [C]oooh, ooh, [G]oh, I[D]-Io[G]wa[C-G]
INTERLUDE: G Em G C G C-G
Once I had every[D]thing, I gave it up[Em]
For the [C]shoulder of your [G]driveway and the [D]words I?ve never [G]felt[C-G]
And so for you, I came this [D]far across the [Em]tracks
Ten [C]miles above the [G]limit, and with [D]no seat[G]belt, and I?d do it again
For to[Em]night I went running through the [C]screen doors of dis[G]cretion
For I [Am]woke up from a nightmare that I c[D]ould not stand to see[C]
You were a-wandering out [G]on the hills of [Em]Iowa
And [C]you were not [Am]thinking of [D]me
BRIDGE:
Oh, ooh, oh, [G]ooh
[D] [Em] [C] [G] [D] [G] [C-G]  
 
 I-I-I-I, I-I-I-I-I-I, Iowa

CHORUS:
Iowa, oh [D]ooh
Io[Em]wa, oh, [C]oooh, ooh, [G]oh, I[D]-Io[G]wa[C-G]
Iowa, oh [D]ooh
Io[Em]wa, oh, [C]oooh, ooh, [G]oh, I[D]-Io[G]wa[C-G]
CHORUS:
Iowa, oh [D]ooh
Io[Em]wa, oh, [C]oooh, ooh, [G]oh, I[D]-Io[G]wa[C-G]
Iowa, oh [D]ooh
Io[Em]wa, oh, [C]oooh, ooh, [G]oh, I[D]-Io[G]wa [C] [G]
