C D G So there's hundreds of auburn alabama acres C D G with rows of red roofs over warm farmers daughters C D Em who've got no intention of inviting me in C D G space shines all above me so i settle myself under it. C D G when i wake up i'm back in my crowded city apartment C D G some random men doing work off in the kitchen C D Em G stacking mattresses up now to the ceiling and down to the floor. C D G my fathers sick in the hallway i hear him whistlin under the door. C D G i rush to lift him but you all know i am weak and you know that he is heavy. C D G there's no blood in his cheeks but he's smiling straight at me. C D G I ask the thickest of the workers "would you please come and help me out?" C D G he comes ambling over and says "sir, i love how your whistling sounds" C D so now i drag him through the kitchen to the living room and down on the G carpet C D G he says, "son i'm embarassed, but the sides of my head hurt. C D Em G i just know that i'm tired and i could surely use some rest." C D G i tear a mattress down for him and i say, "here dad sleep some on this." C G i wake for real and it's over. C C/B Am Em G i'm alone in acres and my dad is still dead. C D G D but if you underneath one of those rooftops, look out your window and invite Em me on in. C D Em 'cause it's cold and i'm lonely and i could sure use a friend C D Em yeah it's cold and i'm lonely and i could sure use a friend. C D G it's cold and i'm lonely and i could sure use a friend yeah These are the basic chords. The intro posted is pretty close so you can work with that. are lots of walking bass parts and such but I am far too lazy to figure out and tab all that.
