Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Valerie  Emmylou Harris

[B]To the east the factories stand
Like fire-breathing dragons [F#]against the sky
And [B]from their throats a scarlet river
Burns itself into smoky [F#]lullabies
Over [E]neon and fluorescent skies Valerie,

Can you hear those engines drone
I [B]wanted to go to Mexico
But I'm [F#]stranded here alone
And [E]once I knew a true love

It's been three years since he's gone
And [B]if I could get that feeling back
I'd [F#]give up everything I [E]own  [B]
[B]16 days since I left Corona
And I traveled to this carnival town near [F#]Alberndee
And I [B]rode the coaster there on the fairground
Twisted backbone of a beast that [F#]never heals
And I [E]left some skin on fortune's wheel

Valerie, can you hear those engines drone
I [B]wanted to go to Mexico
But I'm [F#]stranded here alone
And [E]once I knew a true love

It's been three years since he's gone
And [B]if I could get that feeling back
I'd [F#]give up everything I [E]own [B]
[E]Everything's in slow motion now
[F#]In this little border town
[E]I've come so close from so [F#]far
[E]Just to hide behind these windows here
[F#]>From the world outside
I [E]watch those cars and trucks raise trails of dust
[F#]Down the road as they pass by [E]Valerie,

can you hear those engines drone
I [B]wanted to go to Mexico
But I'm s[F#]tranded here alone
And [E]once I knew a true love

It's been three years since he's gone
And [B]if I could get that feeling back
I'd [F#]give up everything I [E]own  [B]
Everything I [E]own  [B]
Everything I [E]own  [B]
