             ASHES BY NOW        Lee Ann Womack

Intro C#

C#
This morning is Monday   Where are you now?
C#                                     G#                     F# 
Teasin' my memory  Teaching me how to lay low   when I don't want to
C#        
Your love is elusive  this I know now  
C#                                      G#                 F# 
Making me crazy  Leaving me out In the open  When I don't want to

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



C#
The moments of pleasures   Never do last  
C#                   
Are gone like a suitcase  full of your past    
G#                    F#    
Long gone, and in a hurry     go to chorus, lead, to ending

ENDING:

 Bb                      C#
You're running all over town
                Bbm          open Bbm                       C#
As much as you burn me baby           I should be ashes by now

lead
              Bbm                              C#
Just like a wildfire you're running all over town
                Bbm                               C#
As much as you burn me baby I should be ashes by now
Bbm              C#   Bbm              C#
Oooooo  Ashes by now  Oooooo  Ashes by now
                Bbm                                G
As much as you burn me baby, I should be ashes by now.
