                This is one of my favorite David Dondero songs,he played at a concert i saw, and its
fairly easy to play. He does it all fingerpicking, but for solo stuff its best just to
play the chords and fingerpick occasionally. All the chords are dead on,(i got bored
towards the end with placement over the word, but theyre very close, plus the rythym
is very easy to follow anyways.) the fingerpicked intro is right, it might now be
perfect note for note, but it highlights the main things that are important cuz lets
face it, fingerpicking is basically random.  Comments/questions to :
have thrown me off.

Chords-
Am   x02210
F    x03210  (not the typically barred one with the 1 on e)
C    x32010
G    320003  (if fingerpicking, youll really never use that bass note.)
C/B  x20010  (is a transition from the C chord to the Am chord)
Intro (4 times)
 Am            F             C            C

Verse  Am       F      C      Am       F         C
         Well i got on the,     its my angle of prison idea,
       Am       F        C               Am     F        C      G
         aint a place in this whole damn city, willing to hire me,
                    C   C/B   Am
         its been 20 years.

Chorus F             G            C   C/B    Am   
         And a horn blows,  from a river boat,
       F             G               C   C/B Am
         It sounds the same,  as the day i went away,
       F             G                C
         you know it sounds just the same.

INSTRUMENTAL QUICK

Verse   Am  F  C     Am      F          C
         In 1979,     man i was always high
        Am        F                    C
         i dont remember commiting the crime
        Am       F                  C      G
         but i remember doing the time
                 C   C/B   Am
         its been 20 yrs

Chorus  F             G          C  C/B  Am
         And a horn blows,  from a snoozaphone
        F             G          C  
         to me it sounds,  like a moan

INTRO AGAIN AS INSTRUMENTAL

Verse   Am         F          C       Am       F     C
         My eyes are not like yours, my eyes are froze,
        Am        F              C    Am     F   C      G
         from the ears, in a jail cell, in fear my foes
                C  C/B  Am
         its been 20 yrs

Chorus  F            G           C   C/B  Am
         And a horn blows, from river boat
        F             G           C   C/B   Am
         and it sounds the same,  as the day i went away
        F             G              C
         you know it sounds just the same
