Right In Time

Dm

Not a day goes by I don't think about you
F

You left your mark on me it's permanent a tattoo
Dm

Pierce the skin and the blood runs through

Oh my baby

C
It's right in time with me
I stand over the stove in the kitchen Watch the water boil and I listen Turn off the television Oh my baby The way you move is right in time The way you move is right in time It's right in time with me
Solo over verse chords
I take off my watch and my earrings My bracelets and everything Lie on my back and moan at the ceiling Oh my baby Think about you and that long ride I bite my nails I get weak inside Reach over and turn off the light Oh my baby The way you move is right in time The way you move is right in time It's right in time with me The way you move is right in time The way you move is right in time It's right in time with me

Can't find a damn thing in this place Nothing's where I left it before Set of keys and a dusty suitcase Car wheels on a gravel road There goes the screen door slamming shut You better do what you're told When I get back this place better be picked-up Car wheels on a gravel road Car wheels on a gravel road Car wheels on a gravel road Low hum of voices in the front seat Stories nobody knows Got folks in Jackson we're going to meet Car wheels on a gravel road Cotton fields stretching miles and miles Hank's voice on the radio Telephone poles trees and wires fly by Car wheels on a gravel road Car wheels on a gravel road Car wheels on a gravel road Broken down shacks engine parts Could tell a lie but my heart would know Listen to the dogs barkin in the yard Car wheels on a gravel road Child in the backseat about four or five years Lookin out the window Little bit of dirt mixed with tears Car wheels on a gravel road Car wheels on a gravel road Car wheels on a gravel road

Sun came up it was another day

And the sun went down, you were blown away
Dm

Why did you let go of your guitar

Coulda held on to that long smooth neck Let your hand remember every fret Fingers touching each shiny string But you let go of everything Drunken angel
Dm

You're on the other side
Dm
Drunken angel
F
C
You're on the other side
Followers would cling to you Hang around just to meet you Some threw roses at your feet And watch you pass out on the street Drunken angel Feed you and pay off all your debts Kiss your brow, taste your sweat Write about your soul, your guts Criticise you and wish you luck Drunken angel Drunken angel You're on the other side Drunken angel You're on the other side
Solo over verse chords
Some kind of saviour singing the blues A derelict in your duct tape shoes Your orphan clothes and your long dark hair Looking like you didn't care Drunken angel Blood spilled out from the hole in your heart Over the strings of your guitar The worn down places in the wood That once had made you feel so good Drunken angel Drunken angel You're on the other side Drunken angel You're on the other side Sun came up it was another day And the sun went down, you were blown away Why'd you let go of your guitar Why'd you ever let it go that far Drunken angel Drunken angel



Lake Charles

A
E
A
He had a reason to get back to Lake Charles
D
He used to talk about it
A
He'd just go on and on
E
He always said Louisana
A
Was where he felt at home
He was born in Nacogdoches That's in East Texas Not far from the border But he liked to tell everybody He was from Lake Charles
D
A
Did an angel whisper in your ear
D
A
And hold you close and take away your fear
E
A
In those long last moments?
We used to drive through Lafayette and Baton Rouge In a yellow Camino Listening to Howling Wolf He liked to stop in Lake Charles Cause that's the place that he loved Did you run about as far as you could go? Down the Lousiana highway Across Lake Ponchatrain Now your soul is in Lake Charles No matter what they say Did an angel whisper in your ear And hold you close and take away your fear In those long last moments?

<Randy Weeks>
G7
Told you baby one more time Don't make me sit all alone and cry
D7
C7
G7
Well it's over, I know it, but I can't let go
I'm like a fish out of water, a cat in a tree You don't even want to talk to me Well it's over, I know it, but I can't let go
G7
He won't take me back when I come around Says he's sorry then he pulls me out
C7
I got a big chain around my neck
G7
And I'm broken down like a train wreck
D7
C7
G7
Well it's over, I know it, but I can't let go
See I got a candle and it burns so bright In my window every night Well it's over I know but I can't let go You don't like to see me standing around Feel like I been shot and didn't fall down Well it's over, I know it, but I can't let go He won't take me back when I come around Says he's sorry then he pulls me out I got a big chain around my neck And I'm broken down like a train wreck Well it's over, I know it, but I can't let go
Solo
Turn off trouble like you turn off a light Went off and left me it just ain't right Well it's over, I know it, but I can't let go Rounds every corner something I see Bring me right back how it used to be Well it's over, I know it, but I can't let go He won't take me back when I come around Says he's sorry then he pulls me out I got a big chain around my neck And I'm broken down like a train wreck Well it's over, I know it, but I can't let go He won't take me back when I come around Says he's sorry then he pulls me out I got a big chain around my neck And I'm broken down like a train wreck Well it's over, I know it, but I can't let go Well it's over, I know it, but I can't let go Well it's over, I know it, but I can't let go Well it's over, I know it, but I can't let go
