Landlocked Blues Chords

Landlocked Blues"
(feat. Emmylou Harris)
Capo on 3

    C                       G                     C
If you walk away, I'll walk away
        C                    G                         C
First tell me which road you will take
    Am              G                     C                    Am
I don't want to risk our paths crossing some day
     C                             G                         C
So you walk that way, I'll walk this way

              C                  G           C
And the future hangs over our heads
           C                        G           C
And it moves with each current event
    Am               G                   C                 Am
Until it falls all around like a cold steady rain
       C                        G                 C
Just stay in when it's looking this way

               C                   G               C
And the moon's laying low in the sky
             C                G           C
Forcing everything metal to shine
              Am                   G                         C                     Am
And the sidewalk holds diamonds like the jewelry store case
           C                               G                    C
They argue walk this way, now walk this way

         C               G               C
And Laura's asleep in my bed
             C                   G                 C
As I'm leaving she wakes up and says
       Am                     G                             C            Am
"I dreamed you were carried away on the crest of a wave
        C                       G                C
Baby don't go away, come here"

                  C                    G               C
And there's kids playing guns in the street
               C                  G                     C     
And ones pointing his tree branch at me
         Am                G             C                        Am
So I put my hands up I say "enough is enough,
     C                      G                       C
If you walk away, I'll walk away"
And he shot me dead

Am          G      C
I found a liquid cure
Am          G                C
From my landlocked blues
        F     G                C       Am
It'll pass away like a slow parade
       C               G                      C
It's leaving but I don't know how soon 

[ Tab from: ]
             C                G               C
And the world's got me dizzy again
                             C                    G               C
You think after 22 years I'd be used to the spin
       Am               G                   C                Am
And it only feels worse when I stay in one place
                           C                    G               C
So I'm always pacing around or walking away

            C                G                   C
I keep drinking the ink from my pen
               C             G                     C
And I'm balancing history books up on my head
          Am        G                   C                Am
But it all boils down to one quotable phrase
          C                      G               C
If you love something, give it away

            C                    G               C
A good woman will pick you apart
           C              G                        C
A box full of suggestions for your possible heart
             Am        G                   C                Am
But you may be offended and you may be afraid
       C                        G                        C
But don't walk away, don't walk away

                C                G                C
We made love on the living room floor
                  C              G                        C
With the noise in the background of a televised war
                    Am        G                              C                Am
And in the deafening pleasure I thought I heard someone say
      C                     G                           C
"If we walk away, they'll walk away"

        C            G               C
But greed is a bottomless pit
              C                 G                      C
And our freedom's a joke we're just taking a piss
             Am                G                          C                Am
And the whole world must watch the sad comic display
        C                G                      C
If you're still free start running away
Cause we're coming for you!

                  C            G               C
I've grown tired of holding this post
          C                 G                   C
I feel more like a stranger each time I come home
       Am       G             C         Am
So I'm making a deal with the devils of faith
        C                G       C
Saying "let me walk away, please"

                 C            G                       C
You'll be free child once you have died
                C                G                     C
From the shackles of language and immeasurable time
             Am        G                          C           Am
And then we can trade places, play musical grace
        C                      G               C
Till then walk away, walk away

Am          G      C
So I'm up at dawn
Am          G      C
Putting on my shoes
        F           G          C       Am
I just want to make a clean escape
Am          G      C
I'm leaving but I don't know where to
I know I'm leaving but I don't know where to
