Thanks Ever So!

Copied from a Linda Ronstadt fan site, and corrected by comparing to Linda Ronstadt's recording, thanks to Google.


KEEP ME FROM BLOWING AWAY
Paul Craft
© Jack Music Inc

Well, I spent my whole lifetime
In a world where the sunshine
Finds excuses for not hangin' 'round.
I squandered emotions
On the slightest of notions
And the first easy loving I found;
But soon all the good times,
The gay times, the play times,
Like colors run together and fade.
O Lord, if you hear me,
Touch me and hold me,
And keep me from blowing away.

There's times when I've trembled
When my mind's remembered
The days that just crumbled away,
With nothing to show
But these lines that I know
Are beginning to show in my face.

O Lord, if you're listenin',
I know I'm no Christian,
And I ain't got much coming to me.
Send down some sunshine,
Throw out your lifeline,
And keep me from blowing away.

O Lord, if you hear me,
Touch me and hold me,
And keep me from blowing away.

[Recorded by T. Graham Brown, Jerry Lee Lewis, Willie Nelson, Buck Owens, Linda Ronstadt, The Seldom Scene, and a few others.]

It starts in open G, then walk down to EM, G7, C, walk down to AM, go to D, walk down back to D on the A string, back to G

that's my best guess, hope it helps

About A YEAR LATE, BUT HERE GOES;

G1--Bmin--Emin--G7--C---Emin---Amin--D7--C--D7--C--D7---C1; C1/C6---G

(G1 is first inversion seems to work/sound better C1 ditto)
