Black Ribbons chords - Shooter Jennings

Shooter Jennings Lyrics


            Capo 1
Verse 1
E                                 C#m
Broke down at the end of the night 
                    A
Can't seem to get anything right 
E
So numb I can't feel things anymore 
B
Somehow could feel me letting go 
A              B              
I know there's so many things 
E                       C#m
That I need to do and I need to say 
A                  E
No matter how hard I try 
B                             
I can't get the words out right 


Chorus
E
Man down, tie a ribbon around my soul 
C#m              A
I'm in the black and I'm out of control 
B Like a ship that's lost in the night A B With no direction or guiding light Man down and I'm drowning in the pain Face down like a needle in the vein You're the only thing that keeps me sane But somehow I can't keep you out of my rain E C#m A I see you standing in the rain Verse 2 The lights in the city feel so bright All these colors I've got inside And in these streets I feel like a foreigner All I paint is myself in a corner Going on seems to hurt so much All the world seems so cold to the touch When I go to sleep I don't dream I just see a blank television screen Chorus Verse 3 Tie a ribbon for the child in me On every door and on every tree Make it black for the way that I feel 'Cause black is the only color that's real Chorus- Starting at the Second Stanza ( Man Down and I'm drowning in the Pain) Outro ( Verse 1) Broke down at the end of the night Can't seem to get anything right
