Hummingbird  Wilco

C Cmaj7 x2
His [C]goal in [Cmaj7]life was to be an [C]echo[Cmaj7]
[C]Riding alone, town [Em]after town, toll [Dm]after toll
A [Fm]fixed bayonet through the great southwest to for[C]get her[Cmaj7] [C] [Cmaj7]
She ap[C]pears[Cmaj7] in his d[Em]reams[G]
[Am] But in his car and in his [Am(Maj7)]arms
Dm Dm/f
A dream can mean anything
A [Fm]cheap sunset on a television set can up[Eb]set her
But he never c[G]ould
Re[Em]member to re[E/d]member me
[Em] Standing still [E/d]in your past
[E/d#]Floating fast like a [C]hummingbird
G G/f# Em G/f#
His goal in life was to be an echo
G G/f#
The type of sound that floats around and then back down
Like a [Am]feather
But in the [Cm]deep chrome canyons of the loudest Manhattans
No [G]one could hear him
Or any[D]thing
G G/f# Bm D
So he slept on a mountain
Em Em/f#
In a sleeping bag underneath the stars
He would lie awake and [Am]count them[C]
And the [Cm]gray fountain spray of the great Milky Way
Would never l[Bb]et him
Die a[D]lone
R[G]emember to [Bm]remember me
[Em] Standing still [G7]in your past
[C]Floating fast like a h[D]ummingbird
R[G]emember to r[Bm]emember me
[Em] Standing still [G7]in your past
[C]Floating fast lik[D]e a hummingbird
A hummingbird
A hummingbird
