It's All in Your Head
Diamond Rio (Diamond Rio IV)

I am using the notation "Ano3" to indicate do not play the 3rd in the A chord, for 
example. The DR guitarist either uses hybrid picking or just regular finger style 
to pick only the a, d, and g strings for the rhythm, and to sometimes includes 
holding the pinky on the b and high e strings in the 5th fret for a typical fuller 
"no third" rock sound. Sometimes I also play the Dno3 as a Dsus2 and lots of 
variations like that. Anyway a key element to this song is the no third sound, 
which changes to full 3rd included sounds when you hit the chorus. Experiment with it. Great song.
 
Verse 1
Ano3
Mama died young giving birth to a son in a home for wayward girls
Papa was a sidewalk, soapbox preacher looking forward to the end of the
world
     Dno3
Every friday night he'd pick Jesus a fight down at the local pool hall
Ano3
Racking up souls, condemning all those caught behind the eightball
        E
He said "I preach the light, the light shows the way, don't ever trust what
the government say
        Ano3                (mute)
we never walked on the moon, Elvis ain't dead, you ain't goin' crazy, it's
all in your head"
 
Ano3
Lucy was a messed up, dressed up waitress with a slightly tarnished heart of
gold
She wasn't half bad for a new step mama, as far as step mama's go
     Dno3
Daddy knew she was the one as he baked in the sun in a parking lot preaching
the truth
Up shot her hand and she cried, oh man "I feel it, yes, I feel it, I do"
     E
It's been revealed to me down deep in my soul there were two shooters on the
grassy knoll
        Ano3                (mute)
We never walked on the moon, Elvis ain't dead, you ain't goin' crazy, it's
all in your head
 
D                A
It's all interpretation
   G                        D               A
to find the truth you gotta read between the lines
     D                A   D
Work out your own salvation
     A              G
that narrow path is hard to define
         D                                    A C D A (after 1st Chorus)
Heaven's more than a place it's a state of mind
 
Ano3
In his quest for truth, Daddy was moved by the spirit to take up a snake
 
In a moment of doubt the venom turned out stronger than Daddy's faith
    Dno3
I'll never forget in his dying breath the last words that he said
         Ano3                (mute)
"We never walked on the moon, Elvis ain't dead, you ain't goin' crazy, it's
all in your head"
Chorus
            A C D A (Repeat & Fade)
