I Was In The House When The House Burned Down Chords

   
This is a great song of Warren's.  There's a haromica part in the begining, after every 
solo, and the end.  I'll try to find it and post it on here.  Enjoy.

G
I had the shit till it all got smoked

C
I kept the promise till the vow got broke

C
I had to drink from the lovin' cup

G
I stood on the banks till the river rose up

C
I saw the bride in her wedding gown

A                                     C
I was in the house when the house burned down

G         C   Em  G


G
I may be old and I may be bent

C
But I had the money till it all got spent

C
I had the money till they made me pay

G
The I had the sense to be on my way

C
I had to stay in the underground

A                                     C
I was in the house when the house burned down

G          C  Em  G


C
I was in the house when the house burned down

I met the man with the thorny crown
