song: la freeway
by:  guy clark

A D A E A D A E

A
Pack up all your dishes
D
Make note of all good wishes
A
Say goodby to the landlord for me
E
That son a b***h has always bored me
A
Throw out them  LA papers 
D
And that moldy box of vanilla wafers
A
Adios to all this concrete
E                                        A  E
Gonna get me some dirt road back street
         D                    E
If I can just get off of this LA freeway
    A                     D
Without getting killed or caught
A                   
I'll be down that road in a cloud of smoke
        E                                       
To some land that I ain't bought bought bought
A
Here's to you old skinny Dennis
D
Only one I think I will miss
A
I can hear that old bass singing
E
Sweet and low like a gift you'd bring in
A
Play it for me  one more time now
D
Got to give it all we can now
A
I believe everything your saying
E                             A   E
Just keep on keep on playing
         D                    E
If I can just get off of this LA freeway
    A                     D
Without getting killed or caught
A                   
I'll be down that road in a cloud of smoke
        E                                       
To some land that I ain't bought bought bought
A
Put the pink slip in the mailbox
D
Leave the key in the old front door lock
A
They'll find it likely as not
E
I'm sure there's something we have forgot
A
Oh Susanna now don't you cry babe
D
Love's a gift that's surely handmade
A
We've got something to believe in
E                                   A   E
Don't you think it's  we're leavin
         D                    E
If I can just get off of this LA freeway
    A                     D
Without getting killed or caught
A                   
I'll be down that road in a cloud of smoke
        E                                       
To some land that I ain't bought bought bought
A
Pack up all your dishes
D
Make note of all good wishes
A
Say goodby to the landlord for me
E                                    A  D   A   E   A
That son a b***h has always bored me

Sounds good to me!

Try changing the E at the end of each verse to E7.

i saw guy clark play a while back and he played it live in Drop D just FYI
-RyanWelch | 2/14/2005
Plays it in G, capo 2nd fret
-eaglesmith9829 | 4/27/2005
anyone know the intro

-bigben5983 | 9/26/2005
I imagine he has played it both ways, but like eagle, I like to play it out of G, capo 2 and do kind of a walking bass with it. Sounds good, and I recommend trying that out.
