Summerday  Dar Williams

CAPO: 2nd Fret
From the ship, we could [Am]see it in the distance
As the [Em]fog was finally lifting
We had [G]come to the shores of Summer[D]day
Gently landing, we [Am]jumped out on the sand and found our [Em]way[F]
Where the dirt was soft and [C]black, we started [G]digging a garden and[F]
Soon we found the woods that [C]we'd call The [G]Forest of Arden for to [Bb]Play
When we came to Summer[Eb]day
On the [Bb]shores of Summer[Eb]day
We will [Bb]live in Summer[D]day
And we [Am]climbed a stony mountain
We were [Em]boisterous then quiet
As we [G]thought about what instruments to [D]make
Soon we started to [Am]build the uilleann pipes and fine [Em]guitars[F]
Then we scouted out the [C]hollows for [G]solitude and silence and [F]
We found the places we could [C]meet, by the [G]blue and glassy river
Under stars where the paper lanterns [Bb]sway
In the streets of Summer[Eb]day
Trust the [Bb]night and trust the [Eb]day
Sun and [Bb]moon of Summer[D]day
We are pilgrims in the [Am]land between religions
We are [Em]following our children
And we [G]paint in different colours every [D]day
And if we're true to our [Am]hearts they will grow up and want to [Em]stay[F]
We will work beside them [C]as they [G]build modest houses and[F]
On a misty April [C]morning we'll [G]rest the shovels on the fence
And die and become a summer [Eb]day
Oh, the [Bb]fields of Summer[Eb]day
And the [Bb]flowers of Summer[Eb]day
They will [Bb]live in Summer[D]day[Eb]
To the [Bb]shores of Summer[Eb]day
So we [Bb]sail to Summer[Eb]day
We will [Bb]live in Summer[D]day[Eb]
La la la de da da da
La la [Bb]la la la la [Eb]la
La la [Bb]la la la la [D]la
[Am] [Em] [G] [D]
