Mickey Newbury – T Total Tommy chords

T Total Tommy

Intro: G  Em  Am  D7  (2X)

G AmTo the sad-eyed misinterpreted hung-up child of clay
D7 GSo the drunken poets pretty words didn't help you find your way
AmWas it your mistake for thinkin' he was born before his time
D7 GOr was it his for thinkin' he might save you with his flimsy rhyme
GT Total Tommy took a toke of tea, black cats backin' up a big oak tree
AmTick tocks tickin' out a tune on time, last words lookin' for a line to rhyme
D7 G Em Am D7 Saw fishs swimmin' in the sea-saw-sea but me well I'm only lookin'
I see so many with no place tonight their sleepy heads to lay With pen in hand I take a stand I got nothin' deep to say Some words are better left to whisper only to the wind Some men kill with bullets Lord others use a pen Sidewalks singin' of a troubled time, small talks marchin' to a nursery rhyme Day trippers trippin' on a mornin' high stop watch watchin' for a chance to die Bad dogs barkin' up an empty tree but me well I'm only cryin'
