                [Verse]

G                                    D                        
There was a mountain on the table of bills that needed paid
Emin                            C
Dishes in the kitchen sink like dreams that never fade.
G                   D 
A wild imagination, convicts in the yard,
Emin                           C
Never enough time to make ends meet
                               G D           Emin C       
So they put it on a credit card, don't we all?


[Verse]

 C                G                         D
You may not know just where you came from, but once upon a time
         Emin                       C
There was a carpenter, a bartender, a broken fishing line.
G                            D                  
Just south of Royalty in the town that I came from,
          Emin           
There were architects and astronauts
       C                                       G D Emin C
But the only one she loved was a prison guard.     Uhm hm


[Chorus]

              Emin         Amin7          D 
And that's the only time I ever saw true love.


[Chorus]

G          D               Emin    G
America's a girl I liked in Georgia
C             G           D
London kept me warm up in Eugene.
          G           D
I guess my mother bless her heart,
Emin                  G
Set the bar too high to start.
      Amin7             G              Emin
'Cause finding love for me is just too hard
D
For a son of a prison guard.


[Interlude]

G D Emin C 1x


[Verse]

      G                             D        
There's a gate that needed painting, clothes that needed clean.
                 Emin                           C
They'd say there's time enough for that when the fun has all been seen.
                 G                        D
'Cause when we're laying on our death bed, a promise we won't say
 Emin                           C
Wish we would have worked more, baby 
                             G D     Emin C
Instead of loving you that way, no way.


[Chorus]

              Emin         Amin7          D 
And that's the only time I ever saw true love.


[Verse]

G             D             Emin     G
Sigourney is a girl I met in Brooklyn
C           G              D
Paris got me close in New Orleans
          G                D 
I guess my mother bless her heart,
       Emin             G
Set the bar too high to start.
       Amin7           G               Emin   
'Cause finding love for me is just too hard
     D                         Emin 
For a son of a prison guard.


[Break]

 Emin                 D               C              
I go wherever you are, whoever you are
 C                                     Emin   
I go wherever you are, whoever you are
 Emin                 D               C       
I go wherever you are, whoever you are
 C  
I go wherever you are.


[Verse]

G         D             Emin        G
Betty is a girl I knew in Charlotte
C              G          D
Jordan left for Sydney yesterday.
          G                 D    
I guess my mother bless her heart,
       Emin            G
Set the bar too high to start.
     Amin7             G              Emin 
'Cause finding love for me is just too hard
       D             G        End on G
For a son of a prison guard.
