    ASHES BY NOW   Rodney Crowell

G
This morning is Monday   Where are you now?
                                         Dm                      C
Teasin' my memory  Teaching me how    to lay low   when I don't want to
G
Your love is elusive this I know now It's making me crazy Leaving me out
        Dm                 C
In the open  When I don't want to
G                                                               C   G
I don't know why  you do that to me   (really low, soft volumn)  go to lead
G
The moments of pleasures   Never do last
Dm                   C    C7
Are gone like a suitcase  full of your past    Long gone, and in a hurry

CHORUS:
Em                            G
Baby, I can't go through this again   
                Em                              G
I don't need to go down More then I've already been
             Em                                 G
Just like a wild fire  You're running all over town
                Em                                  G
As much as you burn me, baby  I should be ashes by now

G
The second street beggars  alone in they life

Drunk on a sidewalk to hide from the night
Dm                           C
Like I am  They're just like I am

chorus
 
             Em                                  G
Just like a wild fire  You're running all over town
                Em                                 G
As much as you burn me, baby  I should be ashes by now



Ending :  Aaaaaahh       Aaaaaahh    Should be ashes by now
