Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Mac Arthur Park  Waylon Jennings

        S[Am]pring was never waiting for u[C/G]s girl,it ran one step ah[Bb]ead
        As we followed in the d[Am]ance
        Between the parted pages that were pr[C/G]essed in loves hot fevered [Bb]iron
        Like a strip-ed pair of p[Am]ants[D#] [F]
        M[G]ac Arthur Park is melting in the dark
        All the sweet green icing fl[Bb]owing down
        S[C/G]omeone left the cake out in the rain
        I d[D]on't th[G]ink that i can take it
        Cause it [C/G]took so long to bake it
        I'll n[G]ever have that recipe ag[Em]ain,Oh n[Bb]o !!
Verse 2:
        I[Am] recall a yellow cotton d[C/G]ress foaming like a w[Bb]ave
        On the ground around your k[Am]nees
        Birds like tender babies in your h[C/G]ands,old men playing ch[Bb]eckers
        By the tr[Am]ees[D#] [F]

Verse 3:
        T[Bb]here will be another song for [Gm]me,and i will sin[C7]g it
        Th[F]ere will be another dream for me,someone will b[Bb]ring it
        I will t[Gm]aste the wine while it is warm
     [Cm]   And never let you catch me l[Bb]ooking in the sun
        [G#]And after all the loves of my l[F7]ife
        [Bb]After all the loves of my life
        You'll still be the [G#]one
Verse 4:
        I[Bb] will take my life into my h[Gm]ands,and i will use[C7] it
        I w[F]ill win the worship in their eyes,and i will l[Bb]ose it
        I will l[Gm]et my passions flow
     [Cm]   Like rivers from the s[Bb]ky
        [G#]But after all the loves of my l[F7]ife
        [Bb]After all the loves of my life
        I'll still be al[G#]one,wondering w[Bb]hy ?
        O[D]h !!! Oh n[E]o !!!!
