Sam Stone chords
John Prine (live version)

Capo III

    A chord diagramD MajorD
Sam Stone came home,
       A chord diagramG+G
to his wife and family,
      A chord diagramA augmentedA                           A chord diagramD MajorD
after serving in the conflict overseas.

And the time that he served,
    A chord diagramG+G
had shattered all his nerves,
    A chord diagramA augmentedA                             A chord diagramD MajorD
and left a little shrapnel in his knee.
        A chord diagramG+G
But the morphine eased the pain,

and the grass grew round his brain,
    A chord diagramE7E7                             A chord diagramA augmentedA
and gave him all the confidence he lacked;
       A chord diagramE MajorE                  A chord diagramE7E7            A chord diagramA augmentedA
with a Purple Heart and a monkey on his back.

          A chord diagramD MajorD                                 A chord diagramE minorEm
There's a hole in daddy's arm where all the money goes,
    A chord diagramG+G                                  A chord diagramA augmentedA
and Jesus Christ died for nothin' I suppose.
       A chord diagramD MajorD
Little pitchers have big ears,
      A chord diagramB minorBm
don't stop to count the years,
      A chord diagramE7E7                   A chord diagramE MajorE                  A chord diagramA augmentedA   A chord diagramA augmentedA A chord diagramAsus4Asus4 A chord diagramA augmentedA A chord diagramA augmentedA
sweet songs never last too long on broken radios. Mmm....

    A chord diagramD MajorD
Sam Stone's welcome home,
       A chord diagramG+G
didn't last too long,
   A chord diagramA augmentedA                                     A chord diagramD MajorD
he went to work when he'd spent his last dime

And Sammy took to stealing,
        A chord diagramG+G
when he got that empty feeling,
      A chord diagramA augmentedA                                A chord diagramD MajorD
for a hundred dollar habit without overtime.
        A chord diagramG+G
And the gold rolled through his veins,

like a thousand railroad trains,
    A chord diagramE7E7                                  A chord diagramA augmentedA
and eased his mind in the hours that he chose;
          A chord diagramE MajorE               A chord diagramE7E7                     A chord diagramA augmentedA
while the kids ran around wearin' other peoples' clothes...

          A chord diagramD MajorD                                 A chord diagramE minorEm
There's a hole in daddy's arm where all the money goes,
    A chord diagramG+G                                  A chord diagramA augmentedA
and Jesus Christ died for nothin' I suppose.
       A chord diagramD MajorD
Little pitchers have big ears,
      A chord diagramB minorBm
don't stop to count the years,
      A chord diagramE7E7                   A chord diagramE MajorE                  A chord diagramA augmentedA   A chord diagramA augmentedA A chord diagramAsus4Asus4 A chord diagramA augmentedA A chord diagramA augmentedA
sweet songs never last too long on broken radios. Mmm....

    A chord diagramD MajorD
Sam Stone was alone,
        A chord diagramG+G
when he popped his last balloon,
A chord diagramA augmentedA                                 A chord diagramD MajorD
climbing walls while sitting in a chair

Well, he played his last request,
          A chord diagramG+G
while the room smelled just like death,
        A chord diagramA augmentedA                        A chord diagramD MajorD
with an overdose hovering in the air
    A chord diagramG+G
But life had lost its fun,

and there was nothing to be done,
    A chord diagramE7E7                                          A chord diagramA augmentedA
but trade his house that he bought on the G, I. Bill;
      A chord diagramE MajorE                       A chord diagramE7E7            A chord diagramA augmentedA
for a flag draped casket on a local heroes' hill

          A chord diagramD MajorD                                 A chord diagramE minorEm
There's a hole in daddy's arm where all the money goes,
    A chord diagramG+G                                  A chord diagramA augmentedA
and Jesus Christ died for nothin' I suppose.
       A chord diagramD MajorD
Little pitchers have big ears,
      A chord diagramB minorBm
don't stop to count the years,
      A chord diagramE7E7                   A chord diagramE MajorE                  A chord diagramA augmentedA   A chord diagramA augmentedA A chord diagramAsus4Asus4 A chord diagramA augmentedA A chord diagramA augmentedA
sweet songs never last too long on broken radios. Mmm....

A chord diagramA augmentedA A chord diagramAsus4Asus4 A chord diagramA augmentedA A chord diagramD MajorD
Mmm....
