      (Am)                     (Cmaj9)    (C) 
There's a man who walks beside me he is who I used to be, 
      (Dm)          (Am7)        (Fmaj7) 
and I wonder if she sees him and confuses him with me 
      (Am)             (Cmaj9)      (C) 
And I wonder who she's pining for on nights I'm not around 
(Fade in) Dm            Am7                Fmaj7 
Could it be the man who did the things I'm living down 

       Am                     Cmaj9    C 
I was rougher than the timber shipping out of Fond du Lac 
       Dm              Am7             Fmaj7 
When I headed south at seventeen, the sheriff on my back 
    Am                 Cmaj9  C 
I'd never held a lover in my arms or in my gaze, 
      Dm            Am7         Fmaj7 
So I found another victim every couple days 

        Am                        Cmaj9   C         
But the night I fell in love with her, I made my weakness known 
       Dm               Am7             Fmaj7 
To the fighters and the farmers digging dusty fields alone 
    Am                 Cmaj9  C 
The jealous innuendos of the lonely-hearted men 
       Dm                 Am7           Fmaj7 
Let me know what kind of country I was sleeping in 

          Am                    Cmaj9    C 
Well you couldn't stay a loner on the plains before the war 
        Dm                 Am7            Fmaj7 
When my neighbors took to slightin' me, I had to ask what for 
  Am                   Cmaj9    C 
Rumors of my wickedness had reached our little town 
           Dm              Am7            Fmaj7 
Soon she'd heard about the boys I used to hang around 

        Am                           Cmaj9    C 
We'd robbed a great-lakes freighter, killed a couple men aboard 
       Dm                  Am7                Fmaj7 
When I told her, her eyes flickered like the sharp steel of a sword 
        Am                         Cmaj9    C 
All the things that she'd suspected, I'd expected her to fear 
         Dm                 Am7           Fmaj7 
Was the truth that drew her to me when I landed here 
  
        Am                     Cmaj9    C 
There's a man who walks beside me he is who I used to be, 
       Dm            Am7             Fmaj7 
And I wonder if she sees him and confuses him with me 
        Am                     Cmaj9    C 
And I wonder who she's pining for on nights I'm not around 
         Dm              Am7               Fmaj7 
Could it be the man who did the things I'm living down 

   Am  Cmaj9  C 
   Dm  Am7  Fmaj7 x2 

        Am                            Cmaj9    C 
Well I carved her cross from live oak and her box from short-leaf pine, 
       Dm          Am7                 Fmaj7 
and buried her so deep, she'd touch the water table line 
        Am                  Cmaj9    C 
And picked up what I needed and I headed south again 
       Dm               Am7          Fmaj7 
To myself, I wondered, "Would I ever find another friend" 

        Am                         Cmaj9   C 
There's a man who walks beside her, he is who I used to be, 
       Dm            Am7           Fmaj7 
and I wonder if she sees him and confuses him with me
