He Lived Alone In Town

	  		
Am    E     Am     Am 
He lived alone in town 
       G          D        E          E7 
His friends were many and true 
      Am      Am/G    Dm/F#   Dm/F 
He drank and took the easy love 
      Am         E       Am       Am/E 
Of street girls that he knew 

        Am     E      Am      Am 
And he met a girl one day 
            G        D      E     E7 
Said "come home with me tonight" 
     Am        Am/G     Dm/F#    Dm/F 
"Oh no!" she cried "I never will." 
         Am        E     Am     Am/E 
And she left him there alone 

         Am       E        Dm       Am 
And the days went by, and days 
      G      D        E       E7 
Went by and they did long 
Am        Am/G   Dm/F#   Dm/F 
For each other every hour 
      Am         E      Dm       Dm 
But still she'd not be bound 

          Am    E       Dm       Am 
"In the places of young men 
   F      D/F#    G     E/G# 
I never will be found 
     Am       Am/G    Dm/F#    Dm/F 
But think you not that I don't love 
        Am       E        Am      Am/E     Am/G     Am 
For my heart is ripe and full" 

      Am      Em        Am     Am 
"How cold you are!" he said 
     G        D        E        E7 
"I guess you must not care 
    Am       Am/G            Dm/F#    Dm/F 
For me. But tell me, Where it is you'd go 
         Am      E     Dm       Dm 
For I'd take you anywhere" 
       Am        E      Dm        Am 
"Then come to a forest green 
      G      D        E       E7 
Where I may love you free 
  Am        Am/G    Dm/F#    Dm/F 
Beyond the confines of your walls 
       Am       E       Dm        Dm 
And beyond the sweetest words" 

       Am        E        Dm        Am 
"And beyond the mountains high 
  G         D         E        E7 
Beyond the fields of shame 
      Am       Am/G      Dm/F#    Dm/F 
And beyond the prettiest wedding ring 
        Am      E        Dm        Dm 
For I'd never take your name" 

      Am      E      Dm       Am 
"And wander with me now 
    F     D/F#    G     E/G# 
Or wander all forlorn 
     Am     Am/G      Dm/F#    Dm/F 
But know I love you, tearful one 
      Am       E      Am       Am/E     Am/G     Am 
Much more than I can show" 

    Am       E      Dm        Am 
He could not understand 
    G           D         E        E7 
He thought she could not care 
      Am     Am/G     Dm/F#    Dm/F 
"Oh, take me far away," she'd cried 
       Am        E         Am        Am 
And he could not hear her prayer 

        Am       E    Dm       Am 
And he wandered off alone 
   G      D       E      E7 
To never know her dream 
     Am        Am/G     Dm/F#    Dm/F 
And she still dwells within the forest 
  Am     E       Am      Am/E      Am/G     Am 
Longing for his love 

      Am     E      Dm       Am 
"So, wander with me now 
    F     D/F#   G    E/G# 
Or wander off alone 
     Am     Am/G     Dm/F#    Dm/F 
But know I love you, tearful one 
      Am       E      Am      Am/G   Dm/F#   Dm/F     Am   E    Am    Am 
Much more than I can show"
