The Night That John Prine Died

	  		
Intro 
C G Am F C G Am F 





C               G                       Am 
In these times each day feels like the next 
    F                                   C              G 
But just tonight my old friend Richard sent a tearful text 
       F                G              C          F 
I could feel his sorrow on the screen, wondering if I 
C        G                             C        F G C G C 
Heard the news tonight that John Prine died 


 

                       G                  Am 
He seemed to pluck his songs out of thin air 
      F                          C               G 
They told of tiny triumphs and lives filled with dispair 
F                    G            C           F 
Complex in their simplicity, so honest and so true 
C    G         Am        F         G              C 
Just what every writer wished that they could do 


        G                                F            C 
There's an Angel from Montgomery that's finally taken wing 
      G                                    F              G 
And a place up there called paradise where even Sam Stone sings 
            Am             G          C                    F 
Where the losers, lovers, loners have gathered round the throne 
     C             G                        C      F G C 
In a mighty choir to welcome John Prine home 



                G                        Am 
I remember a night a bar in Cambridge town 
        F                                     C                   G 
The band took a break, we took the stage and shut the whole place down 
         F                 G           C                    F 
It was Stevie Goodman's birthday, just eight years since he died 
                   G              C                      F 
We sang drank and remembered, we laughed and then we cried 
      C          G                             C 
Just like tonight when I heard that John Prine died 



        G                                F            C 
There's an Angel from Montegomery thats finally taken wing 
      G                                    F              G 
And a place up there called paradise where even Sam Stone sings 
            Am             G          C                    F 
Where the losers, lovers, loners have gatherd round the throne 
     C           G                        C 
In a mighty choir to welcome John Prine home 




                            G                      Am 
Tonight I sit here thinking bout the stories we tell 
          F                             C             G 
And the blessed few who really do make heaven outta hell 
      F         G        C                   F 
So say hello to Stevie I aint ready for ya yet 
      C        G           Am    G        F        G          C 
In the meantime I know you'll enjoy that nine mile cigarette 




        G                                F            C 
There's an Angel from Montegomery thats finally taken wing 
      G                                    F              G 
And a place up there called paradise where even Sam Stone sings 
            Am             G          C                    F 
Where the losers, lovers, loners have gatherd round the throne 
     C           G                        Am 
In a mighty choir to welcome John Prine home 

         F              G          C                  F 
Oh the losers, lovers, loners have gathered round the throne 
     C           G                        C     F G C 
In a mighty choir to welcome John Prine home
