Alone  from  Big Country (from the album "Buffalo Skinners" (1993))
-----        -----------

1)       Am      C       F       C
    The midday sky was grey and purple
        Am       C       F   C
    At least it wasn't blue
       Am        C     F      C
    I want the sky to be the way
      G        F
    I am and what I do
    For I have been a lost and lonely   /* chords for these lines are the */
    Sailor on your sea                  /* same as for the first four */
    Run aground by trusting signals
    You were sending me.

A)  Am C, F C, Am C, F C, Am C, F C, F->G, F->G, G
[ Tab from: ]
2)  The streets are filled with empty faces
    Nothing here is new
    It's just the same in other places
    I have journeyed to
    I was the first across the water
    Last upon the land
    I walked out of the silver mine
    My pockets full of sand.

B)  Alone inside my head                /* chords the same as for 1) */
    Alone inside my room
    I feel alone inside my head
    Alone inside my tiny little world
    Am, C G, Am, F G, Am, C G, G

3)  It's not my life in those old pictures
    Once you threw away
    For I was always someone else
    And always far away
    Walking in the darkest places
    Where the mission meets
    Waiting for the ground to open up
    Beneath my feet.

B)  ...

A)  ...

C)  G, F, Am, Am            /* in C), I strum the bass strings only */
    Alone, inside my head
    Alone inside my room
    I feel alone inside my head
      G              F
    Alone inside my world.
    I'm alone inside my head  /* chords as in the first four lines of C) */
    Alone inside my room
    I feel alone inside my head
    Alone inside my tiny little world.

A)  ...
