All We Wanted


C      I’ve dropped from your hurricane
G      Blowed up from foolish pride
F      Hot air cracks, the sky it’s (C) drowning
G      I wash my shirts in the sink
C      Of the gas station left counting
Am  It’s all we wanted; it’s (D) all we (G) had

Chorus
Well, (C)  I can’t breathe in (G) this ol’ (Am) sky

F    Can you hear me (G) now?
C    It went the way it (G) should-a gone but (Am) Hey
  Can you hear me (C) now?         

C      In the old country market
G      I scratched on the bathroom wall
F       “Why Jessie why, you’re gone but (C) why”
G      Trust is so easy to lose
C      Sometimes it’s hard to come by
Am  It’s all we wanted; it’s (D) all we (G) had

Chorus
Well, (C)  I can’t breathe in (G) this ol’ (Am) sky

F    Can you hear me (G) now?
C    It went the way it (G) should-a gone but (Am) Hey
  Can you hear me (C) now?             

C      On this dirt road that leads from town
G      There ain’t too much hope
F       You made me cry,  that’s the truth of (C) lies
G      Could I listen to your heart
C      When I turn up towards the sky
Am  It’s all we wanted; it’s (D) all we (G) had

Chorus
Well, (C)  I can’t breathe in (G) this ol’ (Am) sky

F    Can you hear me (G) now?
C    It went the way it (G) should-a gone but (Am) Hey
  Can you hear me (C) now?             

…THEN SOLO

Bridge
C      It’s a mean enough world
G      Running mile upon mile
Am  Used up souls on the (D7) side of the (G) road
C      Old loves cut like an (G) old phone wire
Am  Best you’ll be is my (D7) long distance (G) lover

C      Lord-a mercy this chanting
G      Of the Indian spirits
F      Lullabies, wrapped us all so (C) tight
G      Now we’ll laugh at sorrow ‘cause
C      This ride don’t last forever
Am  But it’s all we wanted; it’s (D) all we (G) had

Chorus
Well, (C)  I can’t breathe in (G) this ol’ (Am) sky

F    Can you hear me (G) now?
C    It went the way it (G) should-a gone but (Am) Hey
  Can you hear me (C) now?               (x3@end)
