The Hoosiers
I think this is correct, I just started playing it with the song.  Sounds good to
me.  The strumming pattern is down, up, up for each chord.



Intro  Am   F   F   F   Am   F   F   F

Am            F                   F                   F
People are puppets, held together with string.
Am            F             F                F
There's a beautiful sadness that runs through him,
Am         F               F              F          Am      F      F       F
as he asked me to pray to the god he doesn't believe in.


Am            F               F             F
Time and again boys race to be men: 
Am                    F       F          F
impatient they start, fearful at end.
Am                    F       F              F
But here was a man mourning tomorrow.
Am                   F            F           F
He drank, but finally drowned in his sorrow.


Am         F      F                   F
He could not break surface tension.
Am                     F         F               F
He looked in the wrong place for redemption.
Am  F  F              F              Am 
Don't look at me with those eyes;
F   F         F      Am
i tried to anaethetize:
F                     F             Dm
turn back the time that drew him.
                             F                             Am   F   F   F   Am   F   F   F
But he couldn't be saved: a sadness runs through him,    through him.


Am            F               F             F
Time and again boys race to be men:

But here was a man mourning tomorrow.
Am                   F            F           F
He drank, but finally drowned in his sorrow.

Am  F  F              F              Am 
Don't look at me with those eyes;
F   F         F      Am
i tried to anaethetize:
F                     F             Dm
turn back the time that drew him.
                             F                             Am   F   F   F   Am   F   F   F
But he couldn't be saved: a sadness runs through him,    through him.

Don't look...Don't look................Don't...Don't


Am  F  F              F              Am 
Don't look at me with those eyes;
F   F         F      Am
i tried to anaethetize:
F                     F             Dm

                              F       Dm                      F 
But he couldn't be saved, no, he couldn't be saved:


                     Am  F  F  
sadness runs through him,
F                   Am  F  F   
sadness runs through him
F                   Am  F  F   
sadness runs through him
F                   Am  F  F   
sadness runs through him

sadness runs through him
