Capo 5th

            C (32013)      Cmaj9 (X20010)
They pay me not to come home..

Am7(X02010)       [ch]Cmaj9/E[/ch] (020010)
Keeping me stoned..

I won't run away.. 
             C        Cmaj9
They say it's easy to get.. 

Stuck in this town.. 

Just like Joan. 

        G              C           Cmaj9          Am7
You know I gave it all up for the stage.. 

Am7/G(302010)   C            Cmaj9             Am7
They fill my cup up.. in the cage.. 

Am7/G              Dm          Am             G
It's no ones business but mine when I'm low.. 

G                  Dm         Am             G  
To hold yourself up's not a crime here you know..
                   Am       G
At the end of the world.. 

     C       Cmaj9              Am       Am7/G
So I kick my foot at the lights.. 

F           Bb        G  
Breathe it in all night..

          C          Cmaj9        Am      Am7/G
There's a light in a canvass tree. 

 F          Bb         G
Money from home supporting me.. 

            C           Cmaj9
They pay me not to come home.. 

Am7                   [ch]Cmaj9/E[/ch]
I won't eat crow.. 

I'll stay away.. 

    C          G              C        F
And though all roads will not lead you home my dear..

C         Am           G               C   
All roads lead to the end.. of the world

C              G                       C         F
And I'll sew a little luck up into the hem of my gown..

C        Am                G                 C 
The only way down from the gallows.. is.. to swing 

    C           G           C            F
And I will wear boots, instead of high heels.. 

        C          Am    G               C      F  C
And the next stage I am on.. will.. have wheels      [/tab]
