Late For Dinner
Darryl Purpose - Late For Dinner


CAPO: 3rd Fret




[Verse 1]
Am                                G
Sheppard served in Pharaoh's Army Nineteen sixty-eight 
F                  G            Am
Came home with his body parts intact 
                             G
Spent a year inside his room smoking cigarettes
F             G             Am
Never talked about it after that 


[Verse 2]
                              G
Shep and I got married on the day Nixon resigned
F                G        Am
Honeymooned down Mexicali way 
                                     G
Sometimes when he held me tight he'd look like he was blind 
   F            G              Am
Or staring at a graveyard far away


[Chorus]
          C                            G
And if he blew in through that doorway today 
       Dm                     A  G
Like a long-forgotten echo of winter 
  C                                  G
I don't know if I'd shoot him in the face 
F           G              Am
Or tell him that he's late for dinner


[Verse 3]
                                         G
For thirteen years my love grew for this solitary man 
      F                 G            Am
Who reacted strong when anyone would cross me 
                             G
With hard looks, fisticuffs, if it came to that 
F                 G                   Am
He did the little things that said he loved me 


[Verse 4]
                                            G
And in the morning he would cook for me and drop me off to work 
F              G                 Am
Kiss me on the cheek to start my day 
                                    G
There was no warning the last time, he would not come no more 
      F              G            Am
There was no time to memorize his face


[Chorus]
          C                            G
And if he blew in through that doorway today 
       Dm                     A  G
Like a long-forgotten echo of winter 
  C                                  G
I don't know if I'd shoot him in the face 
F           G              Am
Or tell him that he's late for dinner


[Verse 5]
Am                                 G
Now I almost went to look for him, but couldn't find the nerve 
F                   G                  Am
Something there did not sit right with me 
                         G
I realize this battle is not what I deserved 
        F          G              Am
Chasing Israelites through parted seas


[Chorus]
          C                            G
And if he blew in through that doorway today 
       Dm                     A  G
Like a long-forgotten echo of winter 
  C                                  G
I don't know if I'd shoot him in the face 
F           G              Am
Or tell him that he's late for dinner
