Lincoln Town - John Hiatt

(G) - (C) - (D)

 

(G) What I feel is like an old freight train

Five miles long in the pouring rain

(C) Rolling out of Detroit loaded up with shiny (G) cars

And I'm (D) sitting in a Cadillac smoking on a big (G) cigar

 

What I feel's like an engine room

Open it up and smell the perfume

I love that diesel burning up the atmosphere

When you hear me blow well honey baby know I'm here

 

CHORUS:

Well I'm going down to (C) Lincoln (G) town

(C) Turn your pretty little (D) head (G) around

Take the next train outward bound

Carry you out of Lincoln town

 

Well babe you know my home is with you

There ain't no town or city will do

I need a rolling partner carrying me down the line

and I'm a-comin' into Lincoln town baby right on time

 

Well love is like an automobile

or maybe a freight train dependin' on how you feel

Big wheels rolling listen to that engine whine

Well rubber or steel honey baby I don't mind

 

CHORUS

 

When you see that old black smoke

You know it's time to pack you a coat

Meet me at the station about a quarter to nine

You can ride in my Cadillac honey you can ride the blinds

 

CHORUS TWICE

 

 

Crossing Muddy Waters - John Hiatt

(A) - (D) - (E)

 

(A) My baby's gone and I don't know (D) why

she (E) let out this (A) morning

Like a rusty shot in a hollow sky

left me without warning

Sooner than the dogs could bark

and faster than the sun rose

Down to the banks in an old mule car

she took a flatboat across the shallow

 

CHORUS:

Left me in my tears to drown

she left a baby daughter

Now the water's wide and deep and brown

she's crossing muddy waters

 

Tobacco standing in the fields

be rotten come November

And a bitter heart will not reveal

A spring that love remembers

When that sweet brown girl of mine

her black eyes are ravens

We broke the bread and drank the wine

From a jug that she'd been saving

 

CHORUS

 

Baby's crying and the daylight's gone

that big oak tree is groaning

In rush of wind and river of song

I can hear my sweetheart moaning

Crying for her baby child

or crying for her husband

Crying for that river's wild

to take her from her loved ones

 

CHORUS TWICE

 

What Do We Do Now? - John Hiatt

(A) - (D) - (G)

 

CHORUS:

(D) What do we do now. What do (A) we do (D) now

What do (G) we do now. What do (A) we do (D)now

 

When it's lying there with a (A) busted (D) heart

Like a (G) piece of glass where (A) do you (D) start

Do we (G) pick it up or (A) say good(D)bye

Is there (G) one tear left for (D) us to (A) cry

 

CHORUS

 

What if I can't stay What if you can't stay

What if I can't leave What if you can't leave

What if I believed Every word you say

What if you believed Until today

Do we call the kids Or call the cops

Can you hold me 'till This howling stops

 

CHORUS

 

Gimme back my steel, Gimme back my nerve

Gimme back my youth For the dead man's curve

For that icy feel when You start to swerve

Give us back the love We don't deserve

'cause we rode it long, We drove it hard

And we wrecked it In our own backyard

 

CHORUS

 

 

Gone - John Hiatt

(G) - (C) - (D)

 

(G) Gone like my (C) last pay (D) check (G) gone, gone (D) away

(G) Gone like the (C) car I (G) wrecked gone, (D) gone (G) away

Gone like a fifth of gin gone, gone away

Gone like the shape I'm in gone, gone away

 

(C) My (D) baby's (C) gone a (G) way

 

Gone like a Nixon file gone, gone away

Gone like my landlord's smile gone, gone away

Gone like the furniture gone, gone away

Gone like the rest of her gone, gone away

 

My baby's gone away

 

Gone like the silhouette there by the bed where she undressed

Gone like the candlelight where we made love so sweet and bright

Gone like the one last turn she took before Atlanta burned

Gone like everything I learned gone, gone away

 

Gone like my last paycheck gone, gone away

Gone like the car I wrecked gone, gone away

Gone like a fifth of gin gone, gone away

Gone like the shape I'm in gone, gone away

 

My baby's gone away

(C) - (F) - (G)

 

Chorus

(C) I'm a hog for you baby, can't get enough of your love

I'm a (F) hog for you baby, can't get enough of your (C) love

When I (G) go to sleep at night that's the (F) only thing I'm dreaming (C) of

 

One little piggie went to London

One piggie went to Hongkong

This little piggie's comin' over your house

He's gonna rock you all night long

One little piggie ate pizza

One piggie ate potato chips

This little piggie's comin' over your house

Gonna nibble on your sweet lips

 

[ chorus ]

When I go to sleep at night that's the only thing I'm dreaming of

 

 

Ry Cooder - John Hiatt

Fool Who Knows

(E) - (A) - (B)

 

(E) Well a love won`t last the (A) night if it`s (B) built on (E) sand

(E) If it`s built on rock there ain`t (A) nothing that it (B) can`t (E) withstand

(E) I guess you know by (A) now how this (B) story (E) goes

(E) A very true story, (A) take it from a (B) fool who (E) knows

 

I was high as a bird in the sky in the month of may

With a true fine love all mine forever and one day

Now my eyes overflowing with the memories such as those

They`re tear-stained memories, take it from a fool who knows

 

Now my (A) tears are falling and I (B) feel the (E) pain

(E) Here comes (A) all that (B) hurt a(E)gain

But while my (B) heart keeps beating I`ll go on repeating

The (E) same mistakes that (A) I (B) did be(E)fore

The ones that (A) made me (B) walk the (E) floor

I`ve got a sack full of those, (A) take it from a (B) fool who (E) knows

 

But well my tongue gets tired I `ll be getting wired

While my heart keeps beating I `ll go on repeating

The same mistakes that I did before

The ones that made love walk out the door

I got a sack full of those that I´ll keep digging into

A lonesome road with a cold wind blowing

The path I chose, take it from a fool who knows
