Capo 2

  G                   C           G
I read they're havin' rain in California
    C                G                  D
And Lord I hope that you're not gettin' wet
           G           C                G                  C 
That's the only way on earth I have for knowin' how you're doin'
         G                   C                  G 
When you left you said you'd call but you ain't yet.


      G                  C              G
And I think I was better off when I was hungry
    C                G                    D 
And fightin' off the wolfs from our front door
      G                   C                  G                 C 
But I wrote a song and it came on strong and left you once too often
      G                  C              G                  
Now I think I was better off when I was hungry

My guitar brought us here from Beaumont, Texas
And I bought you everything your eyes could see
But the mansion couldn't hold you could nobody's arms to warm you
I guess I gave you everything but me
