From: Boe R Barnett 

here's a great tune from the untouchable Bruce Cockburn. it's LONER from
his his record Inner City Front. an alternate version also appears on the
compilation Mummy Dust. this transcription isn't as technical as the way
bruce plays it, but if you can sing along it sounds pretty good.

CHORDS: D    xx0232
	F6?  020230
	E?   x4x450  (regular E also works alright here)
	B    024400
	A    x02220

TUNING: standard

	  D    		     F6
VERSE 1:  down at the bus station
	  E				    B
	  shark grins and sandpaper conversation

	  D					     F6
VERSE 2:  they are radiant angels they are earthly slaves
	  E					     B
	  they are predators moving in their endless days

	  E					       B
	  never going to bring them freedom from their pain

	  D            F6
CHORUS:   i'm a lo-----ner
				  A        B
	  with a loner's point of view
	  D			    F6
	  i've always been a lo-----ner
	        	       A       B
	  now i'm in love with you

	  D		    F6
VERSE 3:  wild shadows acid verbs
	  E			   B
	  eyelids opening dans mon coeur
	  D		        F6
	  tu me touche comme la pression
	  E     	      B
	  des etoiles sur les tenebres

	  D			    F6
VERSE 4:  in the elevator and empty hall
	  E					  B
	  how'm i ever going to hear you when you call
	  D				 F6
	  i'm always living and i always die
	  E			       B
	  on the event horizon of your eye

CHORUS again
