Jason Isbell - Cigarettes and Wine

D

..................A
saw her in Roosevelt spring

.....................D
time doesn't touch anything

.......................A
she never did say she could sing

........................D
but I figured it so

I needed some company then
not sisters or children again
that's a hell of a spot to be in
but she put me in tow

money and liquor and lust
have taken my heart and my trust
I could see ashes of dust
headed my way

she tended bar in town
her alto settled me down
so I started hanging around
didn't need much to say

D7


...........................G
she smelled like cigarettes and wine

....................D
she kept me happy all the time

...........................A.....................A7
I know that ain't much of a line

....................................D.......D7
but it's the God's own truth

........................G
she lives down inside of me still

........................D
rolled up like a twenty dollar bill

...................A.............................A7
she left me alone with these pills

..............................D
and the last of my youth

wings on her shoulders and feat
bar on gasseminey street
I took time to plan retreat
backed out the door

must be attracted to those
witnessed a man in throws
life it ain't grindstone nose
pedal on the floor

she smelled like cigarettes and wine
she kept me happy all the time
I know that ain't much of a line
but it's the God's own truth

she lives down inside of me still
rolled up like a twenty dollar bill
she left me alone with these pills
and the last of my youth

lost on the dry side of town
my memories slowing me down
she shook me and I came around
came back alive

nary a mother or dad
she showed me what I never had
princess believe she got sad
cause I won't take a wife

she smelled like cigarettes and wine
she kept me happy all the time
I know that ain't much of a line
but it's the God's own truth

she lives down inside of me still
rolled up like a twenty dollar bill
she left me alone with these pills
and the last of my youth
she left me alone with these pills
and the last of my youth

Awesome. Thanks so much for your tabs! Could I request that you take a stab at Sunstroke? I would love to play that tune, but I'm absolutely terrible at figuring songs out. Either way, thanks again!
