***************** LATE JOHN GARFIELD BLUES *****************

written by John Prine

performed by Kris Kristofferson.

Verse 1:
D
Black faces pressed against the glass
G D
Where the wind leaned its weight

Wind blows scars and top down cars
E A
All share one western trait
G D
Sadness leaks through tear stained cheeks
F#m G
From winos to dime store Jews
D
Probably don't know they gave me
A7 D
These late John Garfield blues

Verse 2:
D
Midnight fell on Franklin street
G D
The lamp bulbs's always broke

For the life of me i could not see
E A
But i heard a brand new joke
G D
Two man were standing on a bridge
F#m G
One jumped and screamed you lose
D
Just left the odd man holding
A7 D
These late John Garfield blues

Verse 3:
D
I'm going away to the last resort
G D
In a week or two real soon

Where the fish don't bite but once a night
E A
In the dark light of the moon
G D
Horses scream their nightmare dreams
F#m G
And the dead men all wear shoes
D
'Cause everybody's dancing
A7 D
These late John Garfield blues
