Down Around My Place  John Hiatt

Capo 2
Intro: Em D Em D
[Em]The radio is busted, d[D]own around my [Em]place
[Em]Every tool is rusted, [D]down around my [Em]place
[Em]Creeks and rivers dried up, [D]down around my [Em]place
[Em]My woman's tears are cried up, [D]down around my [Em]place
And [G]before there came a [D]flood
Some lost [Am]all, even b[Em]lood
Now the [G]sun and wind[D] have come
and left no [Am2]trace
Down around my [Em]place
[D]Down around my [Em]place
[Em]These hunting grounds were hallowed, [D]down around my [Em]place
[Em]Exhausted fields lay fallow, [D]down around my [Em]place
[Em]Kingdoms come and crumble, [D]down around my [Em]place
[Em]My prayers are merely mumbles, [D]down around my [Em]place
And I [G]put my faith i[D]n you
Did you [Am]make that error [Em]too?
Bound to [G]fail that he mi[D]ght show his [Am2]grace
Down around my [Em]place
[D]Down around my [Em]place
Solo: switch between Em and D
They said you w[C/G]ouldn't believe
What a [G]paradise this was
'Til every [D]Adam and Eve, Tom, Dick and Harry
Started [Am]fighting for what he [Em]loved
So, we fort[C/G]ified the ramparts
And we [G]built the mighty towers
But it was[D] plain to see, we never were free
From the [Am]tyranny of the h[Em]our
[Em]The family graves keep winkin', [D]down around my [Em]place
[Em]At every thought I'm thinkin', [D]down around my [Em]place
[Em]While the young ones crowd the table, [D]down around my [Em]place
[Em]Bitchin' about no cable, [D]down around my [Em]place
[G]And my grandpa says, “Don't [D]worry
It's always the [Am]last one in who's in a [Em]hurry
To [G]try and slam the [D]door in the next one's [Am2]face”
Down around my [Em]place
[D]Down around my [Em]place
[D]Down around my [Em]place
[D]Down around my [Em]place
[D]Down around my [Em]place
