It Happens Every Day  Dar Williams

CAPO: 3rd Fret
INTRO: F G C (2x)
The first part of [F]every d[G]ay for me is [C]good
I've got the [F]bus stop [G]in my neighbour[C]hood
And everything's on [Em]purpose, [F]everywhere they [C]go
Hiding in my [Em]car and [F]running in the [G]snow
Running w[C]ith the [Em]friends they'll [Am]know for [G]years
I've [F]seen it [C]all from [Csus4/F]here, from [C]here
Happens every [G]day, be[F]fore they go to [C]school
They play until the [G]bus drives [F]up beside my [C]lawn
And there's always been a [G]mother who [F]waits 'til they are [C]gone
Then she turns a[Am]way
Happens ever[C]y day[Em] [F] [G] [C]
Noon comes and [F]turns this [G]campus upside [C]down
I watch the [F]students [G]in this college [C]town
You would think they're [Em]carefree, [F]I have seen their [C]trials
Frowning into [Em]Shakespeare and [F]practicing their [G]smiles
Even [C]under[Em]lining [Am]Nabo[G]kov
When [F]I am [C]not in [Csus4/F]love, in [C]love
It happens every [G]day, with their [F]journals in ca[C]fes
Looking up at their re[G]flection [F]on the other [C]wall
With every new [G]idea wondering [F]if they've changed at [C]all
And then they look a[Am]way
Happens ever[C]y day[Em] [F] [G] [C] [F] [G] [C] [F] [G] [C]
Well, life is as [F]hard and as [G]easy as they [C]say
Walking the [F]steps we've [G]chosen on this [C]day
Some will be out[Em]rageous, [F]some have rarely [C]shown
Some will walk in [Em]couples, [F]some will walk a[G]lone
As I [C]think a[Em]bout the [Am]world I [G]see
They [F]stare and [C]smile at [Csus4/F]me, at [C]me
It happens every [G]day at the [F]crossing of the [C]street
Walking out to see what's [G]new and [F]what is just the [C]same
And the only word for [G]love is [F]everybody's [C]name
And that will always [Am]stay
Happens ever[Em]y day
And [F]every day will [G]happen without[Am] you [F] [G] [C] [F] [G] [C] [C]
