Blitzen Trapper
Ever Loved Once

great song off the album VII!

guitar chords by joshuaRobot
lyrics by someone else on the internet

standard tuning

intro:
D Bm C F 2x

Verse 1:
       E              Bm
It was just as I was leaving
            A               G
Throw some change up on the bar
      E                          G
She caught my eye through the swinging door
         D                  A
She was standing out by my car
           E                      Bm
I said I thought you moved to the city girl
     A                  G
No I never did find the time 
         E                  G
Ive been wasting away at my sisters place
     D                   A
Just north of the county line

Verse 2: //same chords as first, no lyrics for first half
Well I gazed out across the gravel lot
To the road that leads to town
Thinking all the ways that I broke your heart
Yeah, thinking how it all went down

Chorus:
                 E                Bm
And I said its a strange thing to see you now
         D          A           G        D
Ive been running so long on the same old ground
      E                            Bm
Gonna rattle these chains till the morning light
     D          A      
If I ever loved once, you know
G             D         
I never loved right by 
E      Bm        A            E       
you    ooooooh   ooooooh      oooooooh
Bm        D         A            E
oooooh    ooooooh   ooooooh      oooooooh

//Bm D A E also works for the first set of "ooohs" (instead of E Bm A E)
//but i like the D to E sound better coming from the end of the chorus

//Those are all of the chords. the rest of the song uses the same progressions

Verse 3: 
So we go up to the turnpike
Where the whole world turns to sky
I took her hand, but she drew away
Like a bird getting ready to fly
She said I ainít so young, and I met someone
Heís a rock that just wonít roll
And I gotta find out, if you only love once
Or does love keeṗ coming to call

Chorus:
Cause itís a strange thing to see you now
Iíve been running so long on the same old ground
Gonna rattle these chains till the morning light
If I ever loved once, you know
I never loved right by you

Intro

Verse 4:
Thereís a half built house in the potterís field
All the timbers are turned to gray
Thereís an old brown dog living on the porch
I seen him just the other day
Well I laid those planks, and I drove those nails
But it never did satisfy
And a man must forfeit all he owns
For a glimpse at the reason why

Chorus:
Itís a strange thing to see you now
Iíve been running so long on the same old ground
Gonna rattle these chains till the morning light
If I ever loved once, you know
I never loved right

And itís a strange thing to see you here
If the world donít mine, yeah you better leave the keys
Gonna rattle these chains till the morning light
If I ever loved once, you know
I never loved right by you
