	Am   G/B     D           [2x]
	/  /  /  /   /  /  /  /

Verse 1:

	Am           G/B        D
	Trapped in a mine that had caved in
	   Fmaj7 [x33210]       G6 [x55430]
	And everyone knows the only ones left
	     Dm7 [x57565]     G       D
	Were Joe          and me and Tim

	When they broke through to pull us free
	The only ones left to tell the tale
	Were Joe          and me

Chorus 1:

	C        Bm7      Fmaj7                  Am
	Timothy, Timothy, where on earth did you go?
	C        Bm7      Fmaj7            Am   G/B   D
	Timothy, Timothy, God why don't I know?

Verse 2:

	Hungry as hell no food to eat
	And Joe said that he would sell his soul
	For just   a piece   of meat
	Water enough to drink for two
	And Joe said to me, "I'll have a swig
	And then   there's some   for you."

Chorus 2:

	Timothy, Timothy, Joe was looking at you
	Timothy, Timothy, God what did we do?

Verse 3:

	I must have blacked out just around then
	'Cause the very next thing that I could see
	Was the light of the day again
	My stomach was full as it could be
	And nobody ever got around
	To finding   Timothy

	[repeat chorus 1]


	Am     G/B    D
	Timothy...			[repeat to fade]
