Capo 2nd Fret
Standard Tuning

The second version of this song is spot on short of one chord.  I prefer to use the capo 
it seems to flow better, imho.

Intro Am F C F C
FShe lifts her skirt up to her knees
CWalks through the garden rows with her bare feet, laughing
FI never learned to count my blessings
CI choose instead to dwell in my disasters
AmWalk on down the hill
EThrough the grass grown tall and brown
F CAnd still it's hard somehow to let go of my pain
AmOn past the busted back
EOf this old and rusted Cadillac
F CThat sinks into this field collecting rain
C G F Am E E7Will I always feel this way
C G F Am E E7So empty, so estranged
Am
FOf these cutthroat busted sunsets,
CThese cold and damp white mornings I have grown weary
FIf through my cracked and dusty dimestore lips
CI spoke these words out loud would no one hear me
AmLay your blouse across the chair
ELet fall the flowers from your hair
F CAnd kiss me with that country mouth so plain
AmOutside the rain is tapping on the leaves
ETo me it sounds like they're
F Capplauding us, the quiet love we make
C G F Am E E7Will I always feel this way
C G F Am E E7So empty, so estranged
Am F C F C
FWell I looked my demons in the eyes
CLaid bare my chest said do your best and destroy me
FSee I've been to hell and back so many times
CI must admit you kind of bore me
AmThere's a lot of things that can kill a man
EThere's a lot of ways to die
F CYes and some already dead who walk beside you
AmThere's a lot of things I don't understand
EWhy so many people lie
F CWell it's the hurt you hide that fuels the fires inside you
C G F Am E E7Will I always feel this way
C G F Am E E7So empty, so estranged
Am F C F C Am
