Gates of the Country - Black Lab

Standard Tuning e,B,G,D,A,e
Don't know if this is actually how it's played but it sounds great...
[Em]April. back in new y[C]ork. the 31st f[Em]loor. it s[G]eems somehow
[D] [Em] [C] 
[Em] everything's changed. the kitchen too small. plates on the wall.
the s[G]ound of mach[D]inery.
[Em]May. where have you b[G]een? who were you r[Am]unning with? wasn't he
[C] [Em] [G] 
[Am]someone you used to call home? where is the ring? where is the boy
who went t[C]raveling alone?
[G] [D] [C]  
[G] she... is much better without me. she walks through the gates of the
[D] [C] [G] 
[D] country. hands at her sides. and i smile as i watch her walk by.
(in the air)-2nd CHORUS
[C]somehow i see there are ships in her eyes. oh [G]she...[D] is much better
off n[C]ow.

(in the air) replaces (at her sides) on the second chorus
The second verse is played the same just with different lyrics...
June. the curtain is shut. the patterns are cut. the maid who will
wake you at dawn. pulls out a chair. pulls down your hair. it's just
like you wanted.
July. what's going on. what are you running from. why are you
sleeping alone on the floor. some people change. others hang on till
they can't anymore.
That's all.
