Nightbird  Eva Cassidy

Some ol[D]d [C#m]hote[Bm]l room in Me[A]mphis[G]
[Bm] I see the [A]city through the [G]rain
[Bm] I'm just [A]chasing [G]me my [D/F#]time
[Em] And remembering some [A]pain
[Bm] See there [A]once was a [G]boy
[Bm] And on the [A]street he'd sure[G]ly die
[Bm] So the [A]nightbird [G]took him in[D/F#]
[Em] And she taught him how to fly[A]
[A] See the nightbird [G]softly fly
Why does she fly a[D]lone?
Is the moonlight[E] just a flame[C] for her [G]memory?
Now she's[D] gone[C#m]
[D] [C#m] [Bm] Two bit b[A]ars and honky [G]tonks
[Bm] Any [A]pleasure can be [G]found
[Bm] You can g[A]et just [G]what you [D/F#]want
[Em] If you lay your money[A] down
[Bm] And loney [A]sailors do their [G]drinking
[Bm] My, my, my [A]how the brave [G]men do die
[Bm] And the [A]nightbird [G]sells her pl[D/F#]easures
[Em] Bringing tears to my [A]eyes
[A] See the nightbird [G]softly fly
Why does she fly a[D]lone?
Is the moonlight[E] just a flame[C] for her [G]memory?
Now she's[D] gone[C#m]
[D] [C#m] [Bm] So I gues[A]s I'll go out [G]walking
[Bm] Lord, [A]let the rain keep [G]falling down
[Bm] I guess I[A]'ll go c[G]hase some [D/F#]memories
[Em] On the dark side of t[A]own
[A] See the nightbird [G]softly fly
Why does she fly a[D]lone?
Is the moonlight[E] just a flame[C] for her [G]memory?
Now she's[D] gone [C#m]
