(Townes van Zandt)

This is my favourite Townes number. Given a ÔByrdsÕ type folk rock 
treatment (time that was revived?) IÕm sure it could be a huge hit for 
someone. I put the fret numbers in parentheses behind the chords - it 
helps to get the right sound. Originally appeared on ÔFlying ShoesÕ but 
the best version is on TownesÕ live album: ÔRain on a Conga DrumÕ.

(intro)  D(5) - hammer on B  D7(5) - hammer on/off B   G   D 
	   Em   G   Em   D

D(5)          (+/- B)        D7(5)  (+/-B)
Well if I had no place to fall

      G      D
And I needed to

        Em       G
Could I count on you

To lay me down

Well IÕd never tell you no lies
I donÕt believe itÕs wise
You got pretty eyes
WonÕt you stand me a round

        G         F#m        A
I ainÕt much of a lover itÕs true
        G         F#m        A        E
IÕm here and IÕm gone and IÕm forever blue
But IÕm sure wanting you

The skyÕs full of silver and gold
Tries to hide the sun
But you know it canÕt be done
Least not for long

And if we help each other grow
While the light of day
Smiles down our way
Oh we canÕt go wrong

    G            F#m       A
But time sheÕs a fast old train
      G              F#m         A        E
SheÕs here and sheÕs gone, she wonÕt come again
So wonÕt you take my hand

Well if I had no place to fall
And I needed to
Could I count on you
To lay me down
