Otis Gibbs – The Darker Side Of Me chords

Chords:
Transpose:
[Verse 1]
E AAs we pulled out of Milwaukee I could feel my head and back begin to sway
F#m B7After riding thirteen hours I was ready to get my feet off of the train
E A E F#mReminded of what happened in Wichita, St. Paul, and Abilene
B7 ESomewhere in the distance I was followed by the darker side of me
[Verse 2]
E AI stumbled through the city looking for a place that I could lay my head
F#m B7But first I needed work because it'd been a couple days since I've been fed
E A E F#mOn the shores of Lake Michigan I found a spot where I could finally breathe
B7 EI slept next to the water and I dreamt about the darker side of me
[Verse 3]
E AWhen I woke I found a fishing boat loading up it's nets to meet the day
F#m B7The captain walked up to me and offered me a job and a place to stay
E A E F#mHe promised he'd feed me and I could sleep inside his boat when the day was done
B7 EI could feel the darkness fading as we sailed off in the early morning sun
[Verse 4]
E AThe next two months were filled with the longest days that I had ever seen
F#m B7The work was never ending and I barely had the time to eat or sleep
E A E F#mWe hauled four hundred pounds of salmon from the cold and frigid water everyday
B7 EAfter all my days of toiling I forgot about the darker side of me
[Verse 5]
E AWhen the season finally ended I went and asked the captain for my pay
F#m B7When I walked into his office, he claimed he didn't have a dime for me
E A E F#mHe said I owed him money for sleeping inside his boat every night
B7 EWhen I heard the bogus charges I could feel the darkness churning deep inside
[Verse 6]
E AI closed the door behind me and offered him a chance to come clean
F#m B7I'm here for all my money and I'm not the type of man that walks away
E A E F#mHe laughed and spit at me and said there ain't no way in hell I'm getting paid
B7 EBut his laughter filled with silence as I introduced him to the darker side of me
[Instrumental] E A E F#m B7 E [Verse 7]
E AAs I pulled out of Milwaukee I could feel my head and back begin to sway
F#m B7I'll be riding thirteen hours and I'm ready to get my feet off of the train
E A E F#mReminded of what happened in Gillsburg, Flagstaff, and Milwaukee
B7 ESomewhere in the distance I keep running from the darker side of me
[Tag]
F#m B7 EIf we meet inside a boxcar may you never see the darker side of me
