The End  Ryan Adams

The End (Adams/Panes)
From Ryan Adams and the Cardinals ? Jacksonville City Nights
Lyrics/Chords transcribed by N. Papador
The song is in a country waltz feel? 3 beats per chord. I've placed the chord
symbols approximately where they coincide with the words.
[G] [A] [G] [A] [G] [A] [D] [D] 
[D]I don?t know the [G]sound of my [D]father?s voi[D]ce
[D]I don?t even [D]know how he says my [A]name[A]
But it [G]plays out like [A]song on a [bm]jukebox in a[G] bar
In the [D]back of my [D/A]head till it?s [A]worrying machi[D]ne[D]
And in the [D]cotton fields by the [G]house where [D]I was[D] born
[D]The leaves burn like [D]effigies of my [A]kin[A]
And the [G]trains run like [A]snakes through the [bm]Pentecostal [G]pines
[D]Filled up with [D/A]cotton and [A]dime store [D]gin[D]
[bm]Jacksonville,[bm] how you [G]burden in my [D]soul
How you [A]hold all my [G]dreams [bm]captive[bm]
[bm]Jacksonville, [bm] how you [G]play with my [D]mind
How my [A]heart goes [G]bad
bm A bm bm(n.c.)
Suffocating on the pines in Jacksonville
[G]The end [A] [G]the end[A] [G] [A] [D] [D]
Verse 2/Chorus 2 ? same chords
Quiet Instrumental break
[G] [A] [G] [A] [G] [A] [D] [D]  
[G]The end [A] [G]the end [A] [G]the end [A] [D] [D] [D] [D]
