Transcription by Megan Brown (


Capo 5

Tuning: Standard


Intro- Em Dsus formation (X X 0 2 3 3) hammer off to a D then jump to the C, I hate it when people say this but listen to the recording it really will help, if you can find a recording, I have a bootleg...



It's not far
I can walk

Down the block
To TableTalk

Close my eyes

                              D to a (X X 0 2 3 0) and hammer on back to a D
Make the pies all day

Plastic cap
On my hair
I used to mind
Now I don't care
I used to mind
Now I don't care
Cause I'm grey

C                                              G
Did I show you this picture of my nephew

                  C                       G 
Taken at his big birthday surprise

          C                          G
At my sister's house last Sunday

               C                                  D
Well its Monday and we're making pies

I'm making pies

Making pies

G            D thing ( you know what I am talkin about)

Thursday nights
I go and type
Down at the church
With Father Mike
It gets me out
And he ain't hard to like
At all

Jesus stares at me
In my chair
With his big blue eyes
And his honey brown hair
He's looking at me
From way up there
On the wall

Did I show you this picture of my sweetheart
Taken of us before the war
Of the Greek and his Italian girl
One Sunday at the shore

We tied our ribbons to the fire escape
They were taken by the birds
Who flew home to the country
As the bombs rained on the world

Here I am
Walking the block
To TableTalk
You could cry or die
Or just make pies all day
I'm making pies
Making pies
Making pies
Making pies
