Intro:
A A

A                                       Bm     
A bunch of lonesome and very quarrelsome heroes
E               
Were smoking out
  E7            A    A4  A  Aadd9 A Aadd9
along the open road                      
A                                     Bm      
The night was very dark and thick between them
E            E7 
Each man beneath
              A    A4  A  Aadd9 A Aadd9
his ordinary load                      
D                      A    
"I'd like to tell my story,"
B                              E   E7
Said one of them so young and bold   
D                      A  
"I'd like to tell my story
F#m                 E    Esus4    E    E7
Before I turn into gold."                

A                        Bm     
But no one really could hear him
E             E7 
The night so dark
                A   A4  A  Aadd9 A Aadd9
and thick and green                     
A                             
Well I guess that these heroes
             Bm       
must always live there
E              E7          A   A4 A Aadd9 A Aadd9
Where you and I have only been                   
D                 A            
Put out your cigarette, my love
B                      E    E7
You've been alone too long    
D                        A        
And some of us are very hungry now
F#m                           
To hear what it is you've done
              E    Esus4  E  E7
that was so wrong              

A                     Bm    
I sing this for the crickets
E        E7         A    A4  A  Aadd9 A Aadd9
I sing this for the army                     
A                      Bm    
I sing this for your children
E          E7           A    A4  A  Aadd9 A Aadd9
And for all who do not need me                   
D                      A    
"I'd like to tell my story,"
B                    E    E7
Said one of them so bold    
D                              A  
"Oh yes, I'd like to tell my story
F#m                   
'cause you know I feel
                  E    Esus4  E  E7
I'm turning into gold."
