                Capo: 2nd fret
Tuning: standard

How to play: first hit lowest bass-string you should play on the chord, then the 
chord complety twice. Just listen to the track, it's really easy.

Intro: Em

Verse 1:
Em                     G  C                            G
Where in hell can you go, far from the things that you know,
C                          G                               D
Far from this sprawl of concrete that keeps crawling it's way,
'Bout a thousand miles a day.

Em                     G  C                            G
Take one last look behind, commit this to memory and mind,
C                          G                               D
Don't miss this wasteland, this terrible place, when you leave,
Keep your heart off your sleeve.

G                 D            C                   G
Motherland cradle me, close my eyes lullaby me to sleep,
         C                     G             D
Keep me safe, lie with me -- stay beside me don't go, don't you go

Verse 3:
Em                     G  C                            G
My five and dime queen, tell me what have you seen,
C                          G                               D
The lust and the avarice the bottomless, the cavernous greed,
Is that what you see?

ATTENTION: replace the "don't you go" with the start of the bridge:

C                           G            
It's your happiness -- I want most of all
C                  Am           D
And for that I'd do anything at all. Oh mercy me.
                 C                G
If you want the best of life and the most of love, 
C                    Am          D
If there is anything I can do at all.

Chorus: INSTRUMENTAL - G, D, C, G, C, G, D

Verse 4:
Em                     G  C                            G
Now, Come on shotgun bride, what makes me envy your life,
C                          G                               D
The faceless the nameless the innocent the blameless and free,
What's that like to be?
                                      D            Em
First chorus 2x; end final time with: Don’t go ….. Don't go …
