{st:(John Prine)}
#
{ci:Intro:}
[D]      [A]     [E]      [A]
#
[A]Full blown silence in an e[D]mpty room
A former bride and a fo[A]rmer groom
A folding table and a fo[E]lding chair
A folded hand of p[A]oker there
All new directions must go e[D]verywhere
Big round people in a c[A]ool little square
You can't cut it with a b[E]oat or a plane
Man, it's gonna take a n[D]ew t[A]rain

{ci:Chorus:}
{soc:}
[A]('Cause) You'll be leaving on a n[D]ew train
Far away from this w[A]orld of pain
And when you look out your wi[E]ndow you'll see
Your home, your baby, and your fa[A]mily
No melted ice cubes in a pa[D]per cup
Hell, you'll be happy, you'll be a[A]ll shook up
The friends that greet you will be s[E]imple and plain
When you step down from that n[D]ew tr[A]ain
{eoc:}

{ci:Instrumental:}
[D]      [A]       [E]       [A]
[D]      [A]       [E]       [A]
#
[A]Collected volumes of hi[D]story say
Man makes mistakes most ev[A]ery day
The half a pound of ch[E]opped ground round
Is still a burger when it g[A]oes downtown
No faded photographs of yes[D]terdays
Are in the books that I r[A]ead these days
To fly away from that me[E]mory town
You must keep both your f[A]eet on the ground

{ci:Repeat Chorus:}

{ci:Instrumental:}
[D]      [A]       [E]       [A]
#
[A]I'll be leaving on a n[D]ew train
Far away from this wo[A]rld of pain
The friends that greet me will be si[E]mple and plain
When I step down from that n[D]ew t[A]rain
N[D]ew tr[A]ain
N[D]ew tr[A]ain

{t:Ain't Hurtin' Nobody}
{st:(John Prine)}
#
{ci:Intro:}
[C]
#
[C]I'm walkin' down the street
Like Lucky Larue
G[F]ot my hand in my pocket
I'm thinkin' 'bout you
I ain't [C]hurtin' nobody [G]
I ain't hurtin' no [C]one

Th[C]ere's three hundred men
In the state of Tennessee
[F]They're waiting to die
They won't never be free
I ain't hu[C]rtin' nobody
[G]
I ain't hurtin' no o[C]ne

S[G]ix million seven hundred thousand
And thirty-three li[F]ghts [C]on
[G]You think someone could take the time
To sit down and listen to the words of [F]my s[C]ong

[C]At the beach in Indiana
I was nine years old
[F]Heard Little Richard singing "Tutti Frutti"
>From the top of a telephone pole
I wasn't hu[C]rtin' nobody
[G]
I wasn't hurtin' no o[C]ne 

T[C]here's roosters laying chickens
And chickens layin' eggs
[F]Farm machinery eating
People's arms and legs
I ain't hu[C]rtin' nobody
[G]
I ain't hurtin' no o[C]ne

[G]Perfectly crafted popular hit songs never use
The wr[F]ong rh[C]yme
Y[G]ou'd think that waitress could get my order
Right the f[F]irst t[C]ime

{ci:Instrumental:}
 [C]       [F]      [C]      [G]       [C] 
#
S[C]he's sitting on the back steps
Just shucking that corn
[F]That gal's been grinning
Since the day she was born
She ain't hu[C]rtin' nobody
[G]
She ain't hurtin' no o[C]ne

[C]I used to live in Chicago
Where the cold wind blows
[F]I delivered more junk mail
Than the junkyard would hold
I wasn't hu[C]rtin' nobody
[G]
I wasn't hurtin' no o[C]ne

[G]You can fool some of the people part of the time
In a rock and r[F]oll s[C]ong
[G]Fifty million Elvis Presley Fans
Can't be [F]all wr[C]ong

[C]I'm walkin' down the street
Like Lucky Larue
[F]Got my hand in my pocket, Baby
I'm thinkin' 'bout you
I ain't hu[C]rtin' nobody
[G]
I ain't hurtin' no o[C]ne
I ain't hu[C]rtin' nobody[G]
I ain't hurtin' no o[C]ne
[C]      [F]      Hu[C]rtin' nobody [G]
Hurtin' no o[C]ne
[C]      [F]      Hu[C]rtin' nobody [G]
Hurtin' no o[C]ne
[C]      [F]      Hu[C]rtin' nobody [G]
Hurtin' no o[C]ne

#
Many years ago along the Illinois-Wisconsin Border
There was this Indian tribe
They found two babies in the woods
White babies
One of them was named Elizabeth
She was the fairer of the two
While the smaller and more fragile one was named Marie
Having never seen white girls before
And living on the two lakes known as the Twin Lakes
They named the larger and more beautiful Lake Lake Elizabeth
And thus the smaller lake that was hidden from the highway
Became known forever as Lake Marie

{ci:Repeat Chorus:}

Many years later I found myself talking to this girl
Who was standing there with her back turned to Lake Marie
The wind was blowing especially through her hair
There was four italian sausages cooking on the outdoor grill
And they were ssssssssizzlin'
Many years later we found ourselves in Canada
Trying to save our marriage and perhaps catch a few fish
Whatever came first
That night she fell asleep in my arms
Humming the tune to "Louie Louie'
Aah baby, We gotta go now.

{ci:Repeat Chorus:}

The dogs were barking as the cars were parking
The loan sharks were sharking the narcs were narcing
Practically everyone was there
In the parking lot by the forest preserve
The police had found two bodies
Nay, naked bodies
Their faces had been horribly disfigured by some sharp object
Saw it on the news  The tv news in a black and white video
Do you know what blood looks like in a black and white video?
Shadows, Shadows that's what it looks like
All the love we shared between her and me was slammed
Slammed up against the banks of Old Lake Marie  Marie

We were sta[G]nding

W[C]hoa Wah [D]Oh Wha [G]Oh

Seems like the little woman

Where in the hell you been?

Quit hollerin' at me

[F#m]Ain't it great at the end of the day
When there ain't no sound around
Just me and the fence post
Staring each other down
[Bm]Nothing but a big bunch of nothing
Driving me insane
Cause there a[F#m]in't no voice that's louder
Than the one inside my brain
H[Bm]ey you go on
Go [E]on and let me be

S[E]hoe shine someone's got to tell ya the news
A fine line separates a boy from the blues
L[A]ooks like you could use some comp[E]any
S[B7]ame thing, same thing happened to [E]me

[E]Runnin', runnin' just as fast as I can
Someone, someone take a hold of my hand
[A]Looks like somethin' chased you up a t[E]ree
[B7]Same thing, same thing happened to [E]me
[B7]Same thing, same thing happened to [E]me

{ci:Intro:}
[D]

[D]I can taste your li[A]pstick in the w[D]ine,
[G]I can feel your h[A]eartbeat close to m[D]ine.
W[G]ith your love wrapped a[A]round me,
I'm [D]sile[C]nt and st[G]ill.
[C]    [G]    [C]   [G]
I [G]know that t[A]his love is r[D]eal.

[D]I have tasted other l[A]ips I thought were t[D]rue,
I have lo[G]oked into the e[A]yes I thought were y[D]ou.
Now [G]touching j[A]ust to touch,
And fe[D]eling j[C]ust to f[G]eel,
[C]   [G]   [C]   [G]
I [G]know that th[A]is love is r[D]eal.

[Bm]Someone should tell our dreams when love is g[A]one,
[Bm]While still in slumber, memories linger [A]on
[Bm]Sometimes I lie awake in bed till da[A]wn,
Thinking of y[G]ou, now you're g[A]one

[D]Tender is the h[A]eart that sleeps in re[D]st,
Te[G]nder is the h[A]ope of tende[D]rness
L[G]ove thy neighbor as thy[A]self
And t[D]hou sh[C]all not st[G]eal  [C]   [G]  [C]   [G]

{t:Leave The Lights On}
{st:(John Prine/Howie Epstein/Phil Parlapiano/Joe Romersa)}
#
{ci:Intro:}
[E]
#
[E]Feeling kind of boney
On the telephoney
Talking to Marconi
Eating Rice-A-Roni
[A]Nominated for Tony
For acting like a phoney
[E]Watching Twilight Zoney
On my forty-two inch Sony
Th[B7]is is just a long song
It ain't no poem
Le[E]ave the lights on till you baby gets home.

[E]It's like sitting in the kitchen
When the music's really bitchin'
Your nose it starts to itchin'
As you count your old age pension
D[A]id I forget to mention
The ride that I was hitchin'
To the al[E]uminum convention
I had such good intentions
Ke[B7]ep you cotton pickin' fingers off my song poem
And le[E]ave the lights on till you baby gets home.

Le[E]ave the lights on till you baby gets home.
Leave the lights on till you baby gets home.
Do[A]n't forget your toothbrush
Your hairbrush and your comb
L[E]eave the lights on till you baby gets home.
Got a b[B7]ig ol' dog
A chrome crowbar
I k[E]eep that mother humper in the back seat of my car
[E]      [A]       [E]        [B7]       [A]       [E]

[E]Me and Billy Shakespeare
Stepped out to get a root beer
We sat together so near
People thought we were queer
Pun[A]ctuated by the big scare
We joined the Air Force right there
To d[E]efend our country first class
Who couldn't give a rat's ass
Do[B7]n't you tell me that the White House is my home
Le[E]ave the lights on till you baby gets home.

Le[E]ave the lights on till you baby gets home.
Leave the lights on till you baby gets home.
Do[A]n't forget your toothbrush
Your hairbrush and your comb
Leave the lights on till you baby gets home.
Got a b[B7]ig ol' dog
A big iron bar
I k[E]eep that mother humper in the back seat of my car

[E]It's like kissing Greta Garbo
With a mouth full of marbles
  [A]
Like tr[E]ying to cash a paycheck
In the middle of a train wreck  [B7]
Le[E]ave the lights on
Leave the lights on

[E]Like trying to get aroundo
In a car made of bondo   [A]
Like sp[E]eaking German lingo
To a dog named Dingo[B7] - Plotz!!
[E]Leave the lights on
Leave the lights on

[E]Like a french-fried quesadilla
In a franchised pizzeria
 [A]
[E]Leave the lights on
Leave the lights on
[B7]
A big iron bar
I k[E]eep that mother humper in the back seat of my car
