Buddy & Julie Miller  Rock Salt & Nails written  by Utah Phillips



G                         C                      G                   
On the banks of the river where the willow hang down
                         Em      C                 G
Where the wild birds all warble with a low moaning sound
            Em     C                    G
Down in the hollow where the water runs cold
                     F        C                    G
It was there I first listened to the lies that you told
                    C                    G
Now I lie on my bed and I see your sweet face
               Em       C           G 
And the past I remember time cannot erase
               Em       C                 G
The letter you wrote me it was written in shame
                     F          C              G
And I know that your conscience still echos my name
G                              C                G
Now the nights are so lonely   lord sorrow runs deep
           Em         C               G
Nothing is worse than a night without sleep
           Em    C              G
I walk out alone and look at the sky
             F    C                G
Too empty to sing too loneseome to cry
                                  C                   G
Now if the ladies were blackbirds if the ladies were thrushes
                  Em    C                  G
I'd lie there for hours in the chilly cold marshes
                    Em        C                    G
If the ladies were squirrels  with them high bushy tails
                F       C                 G
I'd fill up my shotgun with rock salt and nails
                F       C                 G
I'd fill up my shotgun with rock salt and nails
