forty-five years Stan Rogers
Just so happens I've got that one on the machine.... Let's see now... Oh yeah, a caveat, since I actually play mandolin I usually simpify guitar chords, not knowing how to translate them there sus's and things... So this might not be strictly chapter and verse, but it works. Enjoy. Forty-Five Years (guitar - capo 3rd fret) - By Stan Rogers G Where the Earth show it bones of wind broken stone D/F# and the sea and the sky are one Am C I'm caught out of time, my blood sings with wine D/F# and I'm running naked in the sun G There's God in the trees, I'm weak in the knees D/F# and the sky is a painful blue Am C D/F# G I'd like to look around, but Honey all I see is you. CHORUS Intro to chorus is G-C-G-D/F# C G C G And I just want to hold you closer than I've ever held anyone before C G You say you've been twice a wife and you're through with life Am Am/G D/F# Ah but Honey what the hell's it for C G After twenty-three years you'ld think I could find a way C G to let you know somehow Am Am/G D/F# G That I want to see your smiling face forty five years from now. G The summer city lights will soften the night D 'Til you'd think that the air is clear Am C And I'm sitting with friends where forty-five cents D Will buy another glass of beer G He's got something to say, but I'm so far away D That I don't know who I'm talking to Am C D G 'Cause you just walked in the door, and Honey, All I see is you. To Chorus G So alone in the lights on stage every night D/F# I've been reaching out to find a friend Am C Who knows all the words, sings so she's heard D/F# And knows how all the stories end G Maybe after the show she'1l ask me to go D/F# Home with her for a drink or two Am C D/F# G Now her smile lights her eyes, but Honey, all I see is you.
