Capo 3rd fret
 
 
[Intro]
G   C  G  C  G
 
[Intro]
G
I choose to stay far away
G
From the ones that think
G
Money is money to share
G
Don't ask me why
G
And I'll tell you no lies
 
[Verse 2]
G
Sonny don't come here no more
G
He don't drink from this well
G
O he's done with the world
G
And done with the girl
G
And I don't ask him why
G
And he tells me no lies
 
[Chorus]
G                   E         
Those of us who are lost and low
  Dm
I know how you feel
  G                            C   G  C  G
I know it's not right but it's real
 
[Bridge]
  Dm
I don't ask for love
      G
And I don't beg for money
         Dm7                     G
I'm just asking for grace and forgiveness
G
Now honey don't ask me why
         C           G C G
And I'll tell you no lies
Dm
Been looking for answers
   G
In unsavoury places
       Dm7
On the highest of mountains
           G
And on the lowest of bases
                       C
And I still don't know why
                   G C G
I still don't know why
 
[Chorus]
G7                  E7
Those of us who are lost and low
   Dm7
We know how you feel
   G                            C G
We know it's not right but it's real
     C     G
But it's real
 
[Verse 3]
G
I took the wind from the sea
G
I took the blood from an arrow
           C      G
I took the wisdom of spring
          G7                   G
And I was thrown and blown and tossed and turned until
G7                      G            G7
Time found its hand and called an end
G
Me and time we go way back when
G
I was a child
G
And I always knew why
G
I knew my name
G
I knew my road
    G7                    C
And I stayed away from heavy loads
 G    C     G    C
I'm still, I'm low
 G    C     G  C G
O lord am I low
 
[Chorus]
G                   E7
Those of us who are lost and low
  Dm7
I know how you feel
  G                            C G
I know it's not right but it's real
     C     G C G
But it's real
 
[Outro]

                  I choose to stay far away
From the ones that think
Money is money to share
Don't ask me why
And I'll tell you no lies

Sonny don't come here no more
He don't drink from this well
O he's done with the world
And done with the girl
And I don't ask him why
And he tells me no lies

Those of us who are lost and low
I know how you feel
I know it's not right but it's real
But it's real.

I don't ask for love
And I don't beg for money
I'm just asking for grace and forgiveness
Now honey don't ask me why
And I'll tell you no lies.

Been looking for answers
In unsavoury places
On the highest of mountains
And on the lowest of bases
And I still don't know why
I still don't know why.

Those of us who are lost and low
We know how you feel
We know it's not right but it's real
But it's real.

I took the wind from the sea
I took the blood from an arrow
I took the wisdom of spring
And I was thrown and blown and tossed and turned until
Time found its hand and called an end
Me and time we go way back when
I was a child
And I always knew why.

I knew my name
I knew my road
And I stayed away from heavy loads
I'm still, I'm low
O lord am I low

Those of us who are lost and low
We know how you feel
We know it's not right but it's real
But it's real.
