Landlocked Blues Chords

Landlocked blues 

capo 3rd fret

Real easy song,Same progression all the way through the song. It's easy to work
out the rhythm. The positions of the changes is pretty accurate

C X32010    Am/G X02213  Am X02210

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

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

               C                   Am/G               C
And the moon's laying low in the sky
             C                Am/G           C
Forcing everything metal to shine
              Am                   Am/G                         C                     Am
And the sidewalk holds diamonds like the jewelry store case
           C                               Am/G                    C
They argue walk this way, no walk this way

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cause we're coming for you!

Instrumental trumpet bit (keep up the chord progression
                  C            G               C
I've grown tired of holding this pose
          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 fame
        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 graves
        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
Am          G      C
I know I'm leaving but I don't know where to
