'Dark and Dirty Mile'
Jason Boland & The Stragglers
Performed at Glass Cactus June 2012

Standard Tuning - Capo 2

Intro:   A

Verse 1:
  A                              D
I refuse to spend the rest of my days
                        A
Trying to get away from all the things 
             E                 ?
I did when I knew not what I'd done
      A                               D
Oh so young and tired love was not an item
                 A
My bottle always refused to hear them tell me
       E              A
Not to stare into the sun
     A                            D
This pornographic place told me a body was to be feared
         A                                 E
And then wanted at the same time friend if you figure how                
A                               D
Feared because it was a pathway to a mortal sin 
             A
And then you wanted 
                           E                    A
'Cause we'll all be dust a few short years from now

Chorus:
       E                              D
It's a broken hearted world that we inherit
E                               D
All we're told to do is sin and bear it
             A     D                       A     D  E 
For a little while   on the dark and dirty mile

Verse 2:
   A                               D
It took a while at least for me to live enough 'till I believed
A                                  E              ?
None of what I heard and less than half of what I saw
       A
Market days have come and gone 
D                                    A 
Some were lost and some are on their way back home
                         E        A
To figure out a place to place it all

Chorus:
       E                              D
It's a broken hearted world that we inherit
E                               D
All we're told to do is sin and bear it
             A     D                       A           
For a little while   on the dark and dirty mile
D                           A
   We're all family here in trail 
D                         A   D
   On this dark and dirty mile

Instrumental:
A  D  A  D  A  D  A  D  E  A 

Verse 3:
A                       D
Finally I realized that knowledge better make you wise
   A                              E              ?
Or all the knots you learned will leave you in a ball
   A      
Helpless as when we were born
D                       
Thread bare and wholly worn out 
A                         E            A
Shivering as summer gives way to early fall

Chorus:
       E                              D
It's a broken hearted world that we inherit
E                               D
All we're told to do is sin and bear it
             A     D                       A           
For a little while   on the dark and dirty mile
D                         A
   We're all family here in trail 
D                         A   D
   On this dark and dirty mile

Outro:
A  D  A  D  A  D  A  D  E  A 

Enjoy. I'm pretty sure he said he wrote this song Stoney. This is not on an 
album, so this is the best I could do with my video recording.
