I sit all day staring at a leaf.  
 Em                 C           G
I know that my time here is brief.
Am               C/B         D
I'd like to get some details down.

She took the kids and the color TV.

He said, "I wish she'd taken the rest of me." 

G                           C9        G  
This travelin' life well it ain't no good.  
Em                   C     G
I'd quit it honey oh if I could.
Am                    C/B D
A puzzle to me why I even care.  
C                      G
The missing pieces are everywhere.

She started talking like to wore him out.

They found love beneath the southern stars.  
C                  G
And some bruises and some scars.

He sees her on that back porch swing.

And I believe he would do any-thing.

Stand all night in the pourin' rain.  
C                  G
To wash her memory from her brain.


G                   C9        G                             
A false move here, a stumble there.  
Em                     C         G
A box of letters and a lock of hair.
Am                             C/B         D
That's all that's left when I turn out the light.  
C                          G
I count the missing pieces every night.
