STONES IN THE ROAD (Mary Chapin Carpenter)
------------------------------------------
[Each chord is half a measure, except chords joined by a hyphen
 (e.g., C - G/B) are a half measure total.]
[I'm not quite sure about some of these chords, especially the Am7/G,
 which I play as 302013.  And the C might be C(9) (x32030).  Also, some
 of the other chords have non-root bass notes, like D/A or C/E, but I'm
 not going to try to figure out which ones.]
[Actually in Bb; capo 3.]

G              D         C          C      D      D       Am7/G   G
  When we were young, we pledged allegiance every morning of our lives
G          D            C              C   D      D          Am7/G    G
  The classroom rang with children's voices under teacher's watchful eye
G             D        C       C      D       D          Am7/G    G
  We learned about the world around us at our desks and at dinnertime
G       D         C       C          D           D              Am7/G    G
  Reminded of the starving children, we cleaned our plates with guilty minds
 
C         C      D       D   G          C - G    D       D
  And the stones in the road shone like diamonds in the dust
Am           Am     Em        Em       C         G        D     D
  And then a voice called to us     to make our way back home
 
When I was ten, my father held me on his shoulders above the crowd
To see a train draped in mourning pass slowly through our town
His widow kneeled with all their children at the sacred burial ground
And the TV glowed that long hot summer with all the cities burning down
 
And the stones in the road flew out beneath our bicycle tires
Worlds removed from all those fires as we raced each other home
 
[guitar solo; same as intro.]
[piano solo; use verse chords.]
 
           C(9)       C(9)   C(9)   C(9)   D          D      G        G
And now we drink our coffee on the run, we climb that ladder rung by rung
   C(9)    C(9)       C(9)    C(9)     Em         C           D      D D D
We are the daughters and the sons, and here's the line that's missing
 
The starving children have been replaced by souls out on the street
We give a dollar when we pass, and hope our eyes don't meet
We pencil in, we cancel out, we crave the corner suite
We kiss your ass, we make you hold, we doctor the receipt
 
And the stones in the road fly out from beneath our wheels
Another day, another deal, before we get back home
 
And the stones in the road leave a mark from whence they came
A thousand points of light or shame, baby, I don't know

[repeat guitar solo three times; end on G.]
