Down Around My Place Chords
Capo 2

Intro: Em D Em D

Em                    D             Em
The radio is busted, down around my place
Em                    D              Em
Every tool is rusted, down around my place
Em                          D              Em
Creeks and rivers dried up, down around my place 
Em                             D              Em
My woman's tears are cried up, down around my place
 
    G                   D
And before there came a flood
          Am         Em
Some lost all, even blood
        G           D
Now the sun and wind have come 
            Am2
and left no trace
               Em
Down around my place
D              Em
Down around my place
 
Em                                   D              Em
These hunting grounds were hallowed, down around my place
Em                           D              Em
Exhausted fields lay fallow, down around my place
Em                         D              Em
Kingdoms come and crumble, down around my place
Em                             D              Em
My prayers are merely mumbles, down around my place
 
      G             D
And I put my faith in you
        Am              Em
Did you make that error too?
         G              D            Am2           
Bound to fail that he might show his grace
               Em
Down around my place
D              Em 
Down around my place

Solo: switch between Em and D

C/G          
They said you wouldn't believe
       G
What a paradise this was
           D
'Til every Adam and Eve, Tom, Dick and Harry
        Am                   Em
Started fighting for what he loved
 
           C/G
So, we fortified the ramparts
       G
And we built the mighty towers
          D
But it was plain to see, we never were free
         Am              Em
From the tyranny of the hour
 
Em                              D              Em
The family graves keep winkin', down around my place
Em                             D              Em
At every thought I'm thinkin', down around my place
Em                                    D              Em
While the young ones crowd the table, down around my place
Em                       D              Em
Bitchin' about no cable, down around my place
 
G                           D
And my grandpa says, "Don't worry
                Am                     Em                  
It's always the last one in who's in a hurry
   G                D                      Am2
To try and slam the door in the next one's face"
               Em
Down around my place
D              Em
Down around my place
D              Em
Down around my place
D              Em
Down around my place
D              Em
Down around my place
