SPEED OF THE SOUND OF LONELINESS
Recorded by Nancy Griffith
Written by John Prine

INSTRUMENTAL (C F G7 C twice, first time slowly)

C F
You come home late and you come home early
G7 C
You come on big when you're feelin' small
F
You come home straight and you come home curly
G7 C
Sometimes you don't come home at all

CHORUS:
F
So what in the world's come over you
G7 C
And what in heavens name have you done
F
You broken the speed of the sound of loneliness
G7 C
You're out there runnin' just to be on the run

F
Well I've got a heart that burns with a fever
G7 C
And I've got a worried and a jealous mind
F
How can a love that'll last forever
G7 C
Now get left so far behind

CHORUS

INSTRUMENTAL (Same as chorus)

C F
It's mighty mean and a dreadful sorrow
G7 C
It's crossed the evil line today
F
How can you ask about tomorrow
G7 C
When we ain't got one word to say

CHORUS (Repeated twice)

G7 C
You're out there runnin' just to be on the run (Repeated twice)

INSTRUMENTAL (C F G7 C)
