Verse 1
[Bmin]Rose Lived on the [A]south side of [E]town, until her
[G]Landlord showed [D]up with two [A]hundred [A7]dollor [A]bills.
[Bmin]A notice of [A]eviction on the [E]other hand, now she dont
[G]Live there no [D]more, and every[A]one thinks she [E]drowned.
Verse 2 & 3 (same chords ans verse 1)
I pulled into Mecklenberg on them trains, into a
station that got flooded when they opened up the dams.
And broke their connection to the railway lines, so they could
blast into the quarry, and for every load of granite,
(we got a ton of worry).
One night at the diner, over eggs.
Over easy, she showed me the length of her legs.
But that gold plated cross on her neck it was real,
and you dont get that kind of money from pushing the meal.

Riff 1
To most any drifter, who's looking for work is too
[A]wierd, i met you [G]sister and i [C]married her in [D]july.
A G C D E.
But if only to get closer to you, caroline.
Verse 4 & 5 (The Usual Verse chords)
Percy and i moved down the street, until we lost two
pretty girls, one was seven, one was three.
Alderman and Caroline owned the house right up the hill,
where we laid those babies down, so they
could still see our house.
Suspicion got the better of old Alderman Haint.
He owned an autoparts store, off the interstate.
But the lord took him home in July, and then Rose spilt
the beans on the day that he died.
(We was in trouble)
Chorus 2
Intro Riff 1
I shouldve told him that you were the one for me,
[A]But i Lied, But i [G]lied.
Intro Riff 1
Tied up too concrete at the bottom of the quarry, with a

He was [A]silent, but his [G]rossary,
