Widow of a living man
Ben Harper
from The Will to Live
Full credit to you if you know of and appreciate this awesome musician.
The song is played on an acoustic tuned to D(DACFAd), but I will write the
chords in as they are played, so if you are playing on a guitar
tuned to E, Aminor becomes Gminor and so on.
I think the chord is called Am2 - x02200
Mama w[Am]hy does he treat me so col[C]d so col[G]d so col[D]d
Am c G D
Why do I feel so old so old so old
how l[Am]ong has he treated me un[C]kind unk[G]ind unk[D]ind
or ha[Am]ve I always been so bl[C]ind so bli[G]nd so bl[D]ind
I'm the [Am]widow, I'm the w[F]idow, I'm the wi[G]dow of a[Am] living [G]man
Am G Am G F G Am2 --> see above
of a living man of a living man
For subsequent verses and choruses, repeat the above pattern.
Why can't the times stay the same
now i am begging him to change
what about all the plans we've made
now i am so afraid
I'm the widow of a living man
why does he hurt me so
I'm gonna need somplace to go
he's no longer some kind woman's son
mama i think that I had better run
I'm the widow of a living man
