The Gaslight Anthem - High Lonesome chords

      
Hey here's an acoustic version of High Lonesome.
have fun and feel free to comment. I saw Brian Fallon playing this one somewhere on 
Should be pretty much accurate.

Brian tuned everything half step down, but still sounds good with standard tuning.

C (032010)C 2 (032013) -----------------> in the bridge
G (320033) ------------------| in the verse & chorus G 2 (320013) ------------------| in the intro & bridge G/E (055410) ------------------| before chorus F/E (033210) Dm (xx0231) Am7 (002213) ------------------| in the intro & verse Am (002210) ------------------| in the chorus If you have trouble playing or remembering the chords, you can also play the standard still sounds good. but Brian Fallon plays it the way I tabed it. Intro: C G 2* F/E (2x) * played very briefly Am7 F/E (2x) G Verse:
Am7So the ambulances came
Dm GThey took your pulse and packed up your things
Am7And the papers read
C GSome boys forget what the heart it brings
Am7And the pounding in the street
Dm GWas your heart in four four time
Am7And the taste of defeat
C G F/E G/EWas was never too far from your mind
Chorus:
Am F/E C GAnd Maria came from Nashville with a suitcase in her hand
Am F/E C GI always kinda sorta wished I looked like Elvis
Am F/E C GAnd in my head there's all these classic cars and outlaw cowboy bands
Am F/E C GI always kinda sorta wish I'm someone else
Verse:
Am7So gravity came
Dm GAnd stole the temple that the schoolboys praised
Am7And the crowd shuffled in
CYou're getting drinks for the same boys
G Am7Who once bought you everything
DmAnd the patter on the bar
GWas just this one time
Am7The patter on the bar
CWas just this one night
G F/E G/EOnly to get by
Chorus:
Am F/E C GAnd Maria came from Nashville with a suitcase in her hand
Am F/E C GI always kinda sorta wished I looked like Elvis
Am F/E C GAnd in my head there's all these classic cars and outlaw cowboy bands
Am F/E C GI always kinda sorta wish I'm someone else
Bridge:
Am7 C 2 G 2 There were Southern accents
Am7 C 2 G 2 On the radio As I drove home
Am7 And at night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet
C 2 G 2 It's a pretty good song Maybe you know the rest
Am7 C 2 G Maybe you know the rest
Chorus:
Am F/E C GAnd Maria came from Nashville with a suitcase in her hand
Am F/E C GI always kinda sorta wished I looked like Elvis
Am F/E C GAnd in my head there's all these classic cars and outlaw cowboy bands
Am F/E C GI always kinda sorta wish I'm someone else
Am F/EWhen our boots they hit the ground {
C G {They made a high and lonesome sound { 3x
Am F/EWhen our boots they hit the ground
C G AmThey made a high, a high and lonesome sound
