you were a phonograph, i was a kid
i sat with an ear close, just listening
i was there when the rain tapped her way down your face
you were a miracle i was just holdin your space

well time has a way of throwing it all in your face
the past, she is haunted, the future is laced
heartbreak, ya know, drives a big black car
swear i was in the back seat, just minding my own

chorus: for the chorus I just use a random picking pattern 
        that keeps with the beat using the chords G C Am and D

G                                               C
and through the glass, the corn crows come like rain
           G                Am
they wont stay, they wont stay for 
C
too long now
              G           C
this could be all that we know..
    D 
of love and all.

well you were a dancer, i was a rag
the song in my head, well was all that i had
hope was a letter i never could send
love was a country we couldnt defend.

Pick around on the Am here for a moment before 
last chorus...
G                      Am                 C          G
and through the carnival we watch them go round and round
               Am              C                G    
all we knew of home was just a sunset and some clowns  ohhhhhhh

just walking the sidewalks all covered in rain
love to just get into one of your stories
just me and all of my plane jane glory
