G                 D
We were born in a dying town
C                     G
Where deperate souls just hang around
G             D            C
Waiting for a reason to believe
G                         D               
The young get old and the old they stay
C                    G
And slowly they just fade away
        D                   C                    G
But I'm going not down that way no I'm not going down
D                         C            G
Cause I've been the loser desperate to win
D                         C               G
And I've tasted snake oil and I've tasted sin
G                         D               C             G     
I've stumbled through the darkness on the outskirts of town
        D                   C                     G
But I'm going not down that way no I'm not going down
G                       D
I met a waitress out on 95 C G She lived her life like throwing dice G D C Her habit finally took the best of her G D She drew me in day by day C G Yea love's a drug that's what they say D C G But I'm going not down that way no I'm not going down D C G Cause I've been the loser desperate to win G And I've tasted snake oil and sin G D C G I've stumbled through the darkness on the outskirts of town D C G But I'm going not down that way no I'm not going down D C G D Let it go D C G Let it go G D You flash that shiny golden smile C G You say it'll be all right in a while G D C But I'm not about to shake your hand G D Yes I've made promises I couldn't keep C G And I've lost a couple of nights of sleep D C G But I'm going not down that way no I'm not going down D C G But I'm going not down that way no I'm not going down D C G Cause I've been the loser desperate to win D C G And I've tasted snake oil and I've tasted sin G D C G I've stumbled through the darkness on the outskirts of town D C G But I'm going not down that way no I'm not going down D C G D Let it go D C G Let it go D C G D Let it go D C G Let it go G D C G I've stumbled through the darkness on the outskirts of town From Slaid Cleave "No Angel Knows" Philo Records 1997 Happy Valley Music/Welding Rod Music(BMI) Gurf Morlix guitar/bass/steel guitar Donald Lindley drums Karen Poston background vocals
