Troubadour  Joe Purdy

This is the acoustic live version.
Played in finger picking style with capo on 2nd position.
[D] [Em] [G] [Bm] [A7]  

[D]It s chilly wind that [Em]blows, [G]Church Street in the [Bm]morning
[D]It s a hard, hard [Em]age resting [G]heavy on my m[D]ind
[D]And Hannah cries [Em]soft as the [G]front door slowly c[Bm]loses
[Em]And she is not the [Em]only o[G]ne I ve left b[D]ehind
[Em] [G] [D] [A7] 
[D]I can still [Em]see you d[G]ancing in the st[Bm]reet light
[D]Baltimore sm[Em]ile and rain dro[G]ps dripping from your [D]hair
[D]Once I held you c[Em]lose and you[G] wrapped your legs [Bm]around
[Em]I woke up in the ni[Em]ght, it was not [G]you, you were not [D]there
[Em] [G] [D] [A7] 
[D]It s not the end of the w[Em]orld, just this c[G]ountry as I know[Bm] it
[D]I ve been across and [Em]back, I ve seen the hi[G]gh and chosen f[D]ew
[D]I will take the hi[Em]t, because I m st[G]ronger and I kno[Bm]w it
[Em]Take the cap off of the rock[Em]et boys and te[G]ll me when it s d[D]ue
[Em] [G] [D] [A7] 
[D]I ve known lots of pe[Em]ople , lots of dr[G]ifters, lots of re[Bm]jects,
[D]Lots of clowns, lots of lo[Em]vers, lots of lia[G]rs, lots of t[D]hieves
[D]And I have been the c[Em]at, I ve been the mo[G]uth, I ve been the cl[Bm]oser
[Em]I am like a vau[Em]lt, your family's [G]secret's safe with[D] me
[Em] [G] [D] [A7] 
[D]So forgive me if I dr[Em]ift off in the sile[G]nt folds of memo[Bm]ries
[D]Bout the battles that I fo[Em]ught in war and the [G]ones I ve loved be[D]fore
[D]Cause I have lived through d[Em]arkness, hope and lo[G]nely dying ki[Bm]sses
[Em]And I have seen the memo[Em]ry walk an[G]gry out the do[D]or.
[Em] [G] [D] [A7] 
[D]And I have been left for lo[Em]sers, left for hea[G]rtache, left for mo[Bm]ney
[D]And I have been left al[Em]one, left be[G]hind and left for [D]dead
[D]And you can take the pi[Em]eces there and fig[G]ht for recogniti[Bm]on
[Em]But I will take the me[Em]mories and silen[G]ce in my hea[D]d
[Em] [G] [D] [A7]
