Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Shallow Days  Counting Crows

[A] Mary-Jaine says its alright, she's just around the corner from the main line
Any [A]day now, its alright. She's standing on the precipice of big time
And I know [A]I'm a little up tight. I got to go before the sun shine
We're just a couple [A]small people squeezing out a life. We need a little good time
Its not far from [F#m]here.  [E]Mary comes and [D]goes.  Drifting through the
[F#m]scenery of [E]shallow days be[D]low. And then as everybody knows you follow
[A]trains out of town and they vanish somewhere under the horizon Yeah well I saw
Mary-J[A]aine drag her shadow down the tracks, stair of into the distance.
Its not far from [F#m]here.   [E]Mary waves he[D]llo. Smiling though she's
[F#m]sinking in the [E]shallow days be[D]low
[Bm]     I can't find the [D]way out of [F#m]here, out on the road again
I'm [Bm]much much too con[D]cerned about [F#m]Mary-Jaine. I'm all alone again and
[Bm]     I like what she [D]said, but not what it [F#m]means. She leaves me drowning through the
[Bm]shallow days,  [D]  down below   [F#m]       [E]
I know I heard a [A]band playing waltzes in a grange hall, the sun is sinking lower
People stair at Mary-[A]Jaine humming softly to herself. Ain't nobody really knows her
And any [A]day now its alright. She tells herself that this will be the last time
And Mary-[A]Jaine pulls her hair back and wonders what she'll do with all the free time
Not too far from [F#m]here.  [E]Mary turns to [D]go. Smiling while the
[F#m]waltz begins to [E]dancin down the r[D]oad, hey, hey
[Bm]Hey hey Mr. [D]Freedom, what are [F#m]we supposed to think?
Cause I'm a [Bm]very tiny [D]person, and it [F#m]worries me, out all alone again and
[Bm]     I like what she [D]said but not what it [F#m]means, she leaves me drowning in the
[Bm]shallow days  [D]    way down below[F#m]
Hey, yeah yeah [A]yeah...ooooh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeeah yeah yeah yeah[D]
I'm sorry. She [A]said "I know, its not the kind of thing you want. I'm [D]falling, falling
down" I'm sorry. She [A]said "I know, I'm not the kind of girl you want We're
[D]fa[F#m]lling, [E]  ooooooh
[D]Fa[F#m]lling,   ooo[E]ooooooh
[D]Fa[F#m]lling,  fa[E]lling down...
