Joe Purdy – Ode To Sad Clown chords

Got his CD after hearing "Can't Get It Right Today", then I watched some 
performances online (Which do him no justice I'm sure)

Tuning: Standard - CAPO V

C GDarling I been down and out ever since you left town
Am F GWell I ain't been the same, no matter how I try
C GSometimes we don't get to choose, the ones who wear the walking shoes
Am F GI'm just a poor boy with the blues, no that ain't nothing new
C GI'm gonna fill this whiskey cup, I'm gonna pick me some banjo up
Am F GI'm gonna play with the Tragedies, singing good time harmonies
C GB. Wright don't you let me down, play that one called Sad Clown,
Am F GYou know that one's about me, I been thinking about leaving town
Interlude: C G Am F G
C GWell sunshine she came out today, it don't matter anyways
Am F G'Cause I still see the water, and it's dripping down my door
C GI used to hear the children play, I used to hear the birds sing
Am F GOne day they just stopped, and I don't hear them anymore
Repeat Chorus! C G Am F G
C GOh and I got caught in this whistling wind, doing my best to regret these sins
Am F GLord would you forgive me if you knew I'm gonna do it again?
C GAnd it's not that I'm not sorry, Lord, no it's just that I'm not strong
Am F G'Cause when that woman looks at me I can't remember right from wrong
Repeat Chorus, overlap lyrics and get loud!
