LARKIN PATTY - "i told him that" Tablature

Official LARKIN PATTY Tablature & Sheet Music »

From: (Bob Cimikowski)

Here's a Patty Larkin tune off the "Angels Running" album which
is easy to learn and hauntingly beautiful, I think. Mary Chapin
Carpenter sings a nice harmony on the chorus. The Story also sing
background vocals on several songs. It's a gem of an album.
Can someone correctly rename the F* chord below? I've indicated
the chords. A listen to the song should convey the simple picking

I told him that my dog wouldn't run
C F*
I told him that I loved someone
Yeah, that's my old car out there
In the parking lot

C F*
I saw him when he first walked in
C F*
I thought it was a vision of him
C F*
He was looking like where he had been
C F*
Looking kind of fragile


Am F* G
He said I read the Bible every day
Tryin' to keep the demons at bay
Thank God when the sun goes down
I don't blow away

My friend said, was he always like that
I said yeah, but he was never this bad
I remember us playing for nickels and dimes
Out on the corner

I asked him to marry me once
He told me he couldn't because
This would be all that there was


He was laughing but I didn't get the joke
He was dying to light up a smoke
And I wanted to cry

In the florescent light of the restaurant
I smiled and I got up to go
I was hoping for a goodbye to hold

But it was kind of like touching a ghost
So I ran when I walked out


I got in my car and I drove
Over the bridge to the coast
Wondering where does old love go
