Dislocated Boy

Chords and lyrics for Dislocated Boy by Joe Bonamassa

B 
I’ve been gone a long  
D 
time
Bm 
Lost 
 
 
D 
in the  
Bm 
seven 
 
seas.
Sail on, don’t you come back
 
Until you learn  
B 
the birds and the  
Bm 
bees.
Who will you find waiting for you,
 
Left to call my  
D 
preacher
 
And  
Bm 
my very lovely wife.

I said, hey now, knocked down, why’d you do it,

Roll me like a hurricane.
All is a bust and I’m numb, like novocaine.
Who done it, what’s up, you said,
 
Sell me out  
B 
why don’t you  
Bm 
boy,
I’m alone, severely broken,
I’m a dislocated boy.

 
I have thought to rise  
D 
my 
 
dictions
Bm 
And 
 
 
Bm7 
I’ve 
 
 
Bm 
suffocated my pride.
(Be)fore you and I embarked on
 
One hell of  
D 
 
ride.
Bm 
Boy, I’ve had these blues
 
Since I been six  
D 
years 
 
 
Bm 
old.
 
But tell me don’t  
F#m 
you 
 
 
D 
worry
F#m 
(A)bout my  
Bm 
very heavy load.
 
And I said,  
D 
knock 
 
 
Bm 
down, drag out, bar fight,
Knuckles on the floor. and there’s shattered glass,
 
And  
B 
one hell  
Bm 
of a  
B 
scar.
Bm 
Broke 
 
 
D 
down 
 
 
Bm 
and hungry,  
Em 
you said so.
Bm 
Sell me out, why don’t you boy,
I’m alone, severely broken,
I’m a dislocated boy.

 
D 
All I need is my  
Bm 
old 
 
guitar,
 
And I’ll play you the best  
F#m 
damn 
 
blues.
Bm 
Heavy affections, and  
Bm7 
 
 
D 
hate to  
Bm 
lose.
Thirty-five years ago,
I was born on Robert Johnson’s.
Bdim 
It’s 
 
 
Bm7 
all been  
Bm 
for you baby.
I’m gonna make it back someday.

 
So tell me  
Bm 
D 
about your working class hero, baby
D 
Tell me  
Bm 
’bout 
 
 
Bdim 
your
D 
Mine 
 
 
Bm 
was born in Mississippi, ’round 1923.
Blue collar flannel shirts
 
Was my Father’s  
B 
way.
Bm 
Worked in a factory,
 
‘Til his dying  
B 
day.
