Down So Long

INTRO:
Am - G - F *slide* G

Am -    G -             F *slide* G
The sun sets across the ocean

Am -          G -          F *slide* G
I'm a thousand miles from anywhere

Am -                     G -                  F *slide* G
And my pocketbook and my heart  Both just got stolen

        Am -          G -             F *slide* G
And the sun acts like she don't even care

Am -           G -             F *slide* G
The wind blows cold When you reach the top, feels like

Am -       G -                    F *slide* G
Someone's face Is stuck to the bottom of my shoe I got a

Am -                 G -                          F *slide* G
Plastic Jesus And a cordless telephone For every corner of my room got

Am - G -          F 
Everybody but you telling me what to do

F             G       C - C/G - Am
But I've been down so long
F       G               C - C/G - Am
Ooh, it can't be longer still
F         G       C - C/G - Am
I've been down so long
         F        G          Am - G - F *slide* G
That the end must be drawing near

I look to everybody but me
To answer my prayers
Until I saw an angel
In a bathroom
Who said she saw no one
Worth saving anywhere
And a blind man on the corner
Said, "It's simple,
Like flipping a coin
Don't matter what side it lands on
If it's someone else's dime"

But I've been down so long
Ooh, it can't be longer still
We've been down for so long
That the end must be drawing near

(percussion break OR VERSE progression will work)
I take a trip
I catch a train
I catch a plane
I got a ticket in my hand
And then a fat man takes my money
And like cattle we all stand

But we've been down so long
Ooh, it can't be longer still
We've been down so long
The end must be...
I know the end must be...
Oh, I know the end must be
Drawing near (Play INTRO/VERSE chords)
