                          LIVE OAK - Jason Isbell
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Capo 4

      (Am)                     (Cmaj9)    (C)
There's a man who walks beside me he is who I used to be,
      (Dm)          (Am7)        (Fmaj7)
and I wonder if she sees him and confuses him with me
      (Am)             (Cmaj9)      (C)
And I wonder who she's pining for on nights I'm not around
(Fade in) Dm            Am7                Fmaj7
Could it be the man who did the things I'm living down

       Am                     Cmaj9    C
I was rougher than the timber shipping out of Fond du Lac
       Dm              Am7             Fmaj7
When I headed south at seventeen, the sheriff on my back
    Am                 Cmaj9  C
I'd never held a lover in my arms or in my gaze,
      Dm            Am7         Fmaj7
So I found another victim every couple days

        Am                        Cmaj9   C        
But the night I fell in love with her, I made my weakness known
       Dm               Am7             Fmaj7
To the fighters and the farmers digging dusty fields alone
    Am                 Cmaj9  C
The jealous innuendos of the lonely-hearted men
       Dm                 Am7           Fmaj7
Let me know what kind of country I was sleeping in

          Am                    Cmaj9    C
Well you couldn't stay a loner on the plains before the war
        Dm                 Am7            Fmaj7
When my neighbors took to slightin' me, I had to ask what for
  Am                   Cmaj9    C
Rumors of my wickedness had reached our little town
           Dm              Am7            Fmaj7
Soon she'd heard about the boys I used to hang around

        Am                           Cmaj9    C
We'd robbed a great-lakes freighter, killed a couple men aboard
       Dm                  Am7                Fmaj7
When I told her, her eyes flickered like the sharp steel of a sword
        Am                         Cmaj9    C
All the things that she'd suspected, I'd expected her to fear
         Dm                 Am7           Fmaj7
Was the truth that drew her to me when I landed here
 
        Am                     Cmaj9    C
There's a man who walks beside me he is who I used to be,
       Dm            Am7             Fmaj7
And I wonder if she sees him and confuses him with me
        Am                     Cmaj9    C
And I wonder who she's pining for on nights I'm not around
         Dm              Am7               Fmaj7
Could it be the man who did the things I'm living down

   Am  Cmaj9  C
   Dm  Am7  Fmaj7 x2

        Am                            Cmaj9    C
Well I carved her cross from live oak and her box from short-leaf pine,
       Dm          Am7                 Fmaj7
and buried her so deep, she'd touch the water table line
        Am                  Cmaj9    C
And picked up what I needed and I headed south again
       Dm               Am7          Fmaj7
To myself, I wondered, "Would I ever find another friend"

        Am                         Cmaj9   C
There's a man who walks beside her, he is who I used to be,
       Dm            Am7           Fmaj7
and I wonder if she sees him and confuses him with me
