Miss Emily's Picture

I saw this submission from A.L. Elrod (, and I knew of a 
slightly different chord progression that I think is a little closer to 
the true recording, so I amended the initial submission slightly.

Initially submitted by: "A. L. Elrod"

    Miss Emily's Picture

[Note -- A6 and F#m7 are essentially the same chord -- barred second 
fret on first four strings, but A6 also plays open fifth string; E6 - 
add a C# to E chord]

(Intro) E6

I wake up in the morning is a state of fright

On the wrong side of the bed all night
A6                                        E6
Clinging to the broken heart -  Inside my head
F#m7                      B7
Open my eyes and I move my hand
F#m7                                    B7
>From 'round her pillow to the nightstand
       F#m7                            B7                 E6
And straighten Miss Emily's picture by my bed

Go to the office; the work's piled up

pour three fingers bourbon in my coffee cup
A6                                                          E6
Cry on my best friend's shoulder - down the hall
F#m7                         B7
I feel so lonely, when I close the door
F#m7                      B7
I bite my nails and I walk the floor
       F#m7                            B7                 E6
And straighten Miss Emily's picture on my wall
 E                                     A           E      A               E              B7           E
Look out my window and what do I see, Nothing but pain looking back at me
                             A            E
All that my future means to me, 
Is tossing yesterday's love out into the wind
                                            B7                    E6
And straighten Miss Emily's picture now and then 

I leave my office and I go downtown, 

to a little bar we all hang around
A6                                                                E6
Laugh -drink beer -shoot pool - and have a ball
F#m7                                          B7
When the laughter stops - and the hurt takes hold
F#m7                                B7
I reach in my pocket for my billfold
F#m7                           B7                   E6
And show Miss Emily's picture to them all

I stagger in the house and I slam the door

Scatter my clothes all over the floor
A6                                                         E6
Wishing I could do the same thing in my head
F#m7                            B7
I drink a beer and I eat a bite, 
F#m7                            B7
Just before I turn out the light
F#m7                           B7                   E6
I straighten Miss Emily's picture by my bed 

                             (REPEAT CHORUS)
