Alabama Acres  Kevin Devine

[C]So there's hundreds of [D]auburn alabama [G]acres
with rows of [C]red roofs o[D]ver warm farmers [G]daughters
who've got no i[C]ntention of invi[D]ting me in[Em]
space shines all above m[C]e so i settle [D]myself under i[G]t.
when i[C] wake up i'm back in my crowde[D]d city apartm[G]ent
some random [C]men doing wo[D]rk off in the kitc[G]hen
[C] [D] [Em] 
s[G]tacking mattresses up now to the ceiling and down to the floor.
my fathers sick in the h[C]allway i hear him whi[D]stlin under the do[G]or.
i rush to li[C]ft him but you all know i am[D] weak and you know that he is h[G]eavy.
there's no blood in his che[C]eks but he's smili[D]ng straight at me[G].
[C] [D] 
I[G] ask the thickest of the workers "would you please come and help me out?"
he comes ambling ov[C]er and says "sir, i lov[D]e how your whistling sounds"[G]
so now i d[C]rag him through the kitchen to the livi[D]ng room and down on the
he says, "son i'm em[C]barassed, but the si[D]des of my head hu[G]rt.
[C] [D] [Em] 
i[G] just know that i'm tired and i could surely use some rest."
[C] [D] 
i [G]tear a mattress down for him and i say, "here dad sleep some on this."
i wake for re[C]al and it's ov[G]er.
i'm a[C]lon[C/B]e in a[Am]cres and my dad is still [Em]dead.[G]
[C] [D] [G] 
but if yo[D]u underneath one of those rooftops, look out your window and invite
me on [Em]in.
[C] [D] 
'c[Em]ause it's cold and i'm lonely and i could sure use a friend
[C] [D] 
y[Em]eah it's cold and i'm lonely and i could sure use a friend.
it's cold and i'm lo[C]nely and i could sure u[D]se a friend yeah[G]
These are the basic chords. The intro posted is pretty close so you can work with that.
are lots of walking bass parts and such but I am far too lazy to figure out and tab all
