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.]

[G] [inC]tro[D]]  [D]     [G]   [C]   [D]   [D]

[G]  I sat outside one [C]afternoon in an o[D]ld lawn ch[D]air
And I w[G]atched the sun set o[C]ff for business[D] west somewhe[D]re
And the sk[Em]y turned water [C]color pink and[G] gold and bl[D]ue
And the [Em]stars all showed up o[C]ne by one and we w[G]aited for the m[D]oon
And I th[C]ought [-]about [G/B]you and I w[C]onder[-]ed wh[G/B]y I
[C]  Too[-]k so [G/B]long to [Am]say goodb[Am]ye
Oh you [C]shine[-]d so [G/B]bright you bl[C]inde[-]d m[G/B]e
[C]  And l[-]eft me [G/B]so I   [Am]  couldn't se[Am]e
That I was the[C(9]  moon[G] chasing the s[D]un   [D]
There was [Em]never a [C]prayer of ever[G] catching u[D]p
No matter[C(9] how   [G] fast I would r[D]un   [D]
Like the [C]moon[G] chasing[D] the su[D]n
Just like the [C]moon[G] chasing[D] the su[D]n
[G] [inC]str[D]ume[D]ntal] [G]   [C]   [D]   [D]
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

[G] [inC]str[D]ume[D]ntal] [G]   [C]   [D]   [D]

[G] [inC]str[D]ume[D]ntal;[G] re[C]pea[D]t a[D]nd fade]
