    Very nice! I like the storytelling and the melody!

    You could add a bridge to mix things up a bit after three verses, such as

    Em / / / | C / / / | D / / / | Am / / /
    Em / / / | C / / / | G / / / | D / / /
    Em / / / | C / / / | D / / / | Am / / /
    Em / / / | C / / / | G / / / | D / / /

    Dave and Phil Alvin founded The Blasters back in the '80's.

    Check out Blackjack David for some plaintive melodies, good lyrics, and tasteful sidemen...
