David Allan Coe - The 33rd Of August guitar chord

David Allan Coe The 33rd of August

D G A D

D G

Well, today there's no salvation

A

The band's packed up and gone

D

And I'm left standing with my penny, in my hand

D

There's a big crowd at the station

G A

Where the blind man sings his song

D

But he sees, Lord, what they can't understand

Chorus:

G

It's the 33rd of August, Lord

D Em

And I'm finally coming down

A D

Eight days from Sunday finds me, Saturday bound

D G

Once I stumbled through the darkness

A

Fell down to my knees

D

A thousand voices screaming in my brain

D

Woke up, in a squad car

G A

Busted down for vagrancy

D

And outside my cell, it sure as hell, it looked like rain

D G

Now I've got my, dangerous feeling

A D

Under lock and chain, I've killed my violent nature with a smile

D G

Though the demons danced and sang their songs

A

Within my fevered brain

D

Not all my God-like thoughts, Lord, were defiled

Chorus:

D Em A

Yesterday's newspaper, forecast no rain for today

D

Yesterday's news was old news, so I threw it away

D

Some time's at night, Lord, you know

Em G

I can still feel the pain

A

And, outside my cell, it sure as hell, it looks like rain
