Just Like The Moon

Kim Richey

---------------------------------------------

[This song is actually in Eb. These chords - in G - are played with
a capo on the 8TH FRET. Another guitar plays in D with a capo on the
1st fret, but those chords aren't nearly as much fun to play.]
[In the parts that go G C D D, the D alternates between D and D(9),
but I think the guitar in A (capo 1) is playing A and Asus4.]

   I sat outside one afternoon in an old lawn chair
 GCDD
And I watched the sun set off for business west somewhere
 EmCGD
And the sky turned water color pink and gold and blue
 EmCGD
And the stars all showed up one by one and we waited for the moon

 C-G/BC-G/B
And I thought about you and I wondered why I
 C-G/BAmAm
   Took so long to say goodbye
 C-G/BC-G/B
Oh you shined so bright you blinded me
 C-G/BAmAm
   And left me so I     couldn't see

 C(9GDD
That I was the  moon chasing the sun    
 EmCGD
There was never a prayer of ever catching up
 C(9GDD
No matter how    fast I would run    
 CGDD
Like the moon chasing the sun
 CGDD
Just like the moon chasing the sun

The crickets called and the moon peeked out of the eastern sky
They both start up about this time each night
And the evening breeze dropped by and brought some sweet relief
And in the silver light I finally let go of the heat

And I thought about you and I wondered why
I took so long to say goodbye
Oh you shined so bright you blinded me
And left me so I couldn't see

That I was the moon chasing the sun
There was never a prayer of ever catching up
No matter how fast I would run
Like the moon chasing the sun
Just like the moon chasing the sun
