A Month Of Sundays

Don Henley

 G
 I used to use my hands,
 C
 I used to build the tractors and the combines,
 D
that plowed and harvested this great land...
 EmC
Now I see my handiwork on the block
 EmBm
 Everywhere I turn,
 EmC
 And I see the clouds cross the weathered faces,
 BmD
And I watched the harvest burn...

That's essentially it, as all the verses can be played with the same basic
progression
(G / C / D followed by Em / C / Em / Bm / Em / C / Bm and end on D)

At the end (after "I don't see next year's crop"), return to the second
progression:

 EmC
And I sit here in my back porch in the twilight,
 EmBm
And I hear the crickets hum...
 EmC
Sit and watch the lightning in the distance,
 BmD
but the showers never come...
 EmC
sit here and listen to the wind blow,
 EmBm
sit here and rub my hands,
 EmC
sit here and listen to the clock strike,
Bm C (end on C)
And wonder when I'll see my com-panion again..

That's about it. Economically and politically a bit dated, I guess, but
still packs a punch musically.
