Dar Williams – Iowa tab
This was pretty much the first song I ever learned, its pretty simple. I wrote out how to play the first verse, pre-chorus and chorus, and from there the chords are pretty much the same for the whole song. Have fun! [CAPO 3] G D Em Ive never had a way with women, C G D G but the hills of Iowa make me wish that I could, G D Em And Ive never found a way to say I love you, C G D G but if the chance came by, oh I, I would, Em C G But way back where I come from, we never mean to bother, Am D We dont like to make our passions other peoples concern, G D Em And we walk in the world of safe people, C G D G and at night we walk into our houses and burn. G D Em Iowa oh ooo C G D G oh, iowa oh ooooh ooo oh i-iowa How I long to fall just a little bit, to dance out of the lines and stray from the light, But I fear that to fall in love with you is to fall from a great and gruesome height. So I asked a friend about it, on a bad day, her husband had just left her, She sat down on the chair he left behind, she said, "what is love, where did it get me? whoever thought of love is no friend of mine." Iowa oh ooo oh, iowa oh ooooh ooo oh i-iowa Once I had everything, I gave it up for the shoulder of your driveway and the words Ive never felt. And so for you, I came this far across the tracks, ten miles above the limit, and with no seatbelt, and Id do it again, For tonight I went running through the screen doors of discretion, For I woke up from a nightmare that I could not stand to see, You were a-wandering out on the hills of iowa and you were not thinking of me. Iowa oh ooo oh, iowa oh ooooh ooo oh i-iowa Iowa oh ooo oh, iowa oh ooooh ooo oh i-iowa
