The Dark  Guy Clark

D A Em (4x)
[D]In the dark you[A] can sometimes hear your own h[Em]eartbeat
Or the heart of the one next to you[D] [A] [Em]
[D]And the house settles d[A]own after holding itself[Em] up all day
Shoulders slu[D]mp, gi[A]ves a big s[Em]igh
You hear no one's foot f[D]all [A]in the h[Em]all
[D]That drip in the kitchen s[A]ink keeps marking t[Em]ime
[D]June bug on the window [A]screen can't get in, b[Em]ut keeps on trying
[D]One way or anoth[A]er we're all in the d[Em]ark
[A]Fireflies and sparks and l[G]ightning and stars
[A]Campfires, the moon, he[G]adlights on cars
A G (hold)
The Northern lights, the Milky Way
You can't see that stuff in the day
D-A-Em (4x)
[D]The Earth turns its b[A]ack on the [Em]sun
And the stars come out a[D]nd the pla[A]nets start to [Em]run, around
[D]They call that 'd[A]ay is done[Em]
[D]But really it's j[A]ust getting start[Em]ed
[D]Some folks take c[A]omfort in th[Em]at
H[A]ow dark is it? I[G]t's too dark for goblins
[A]How dark is it? I[G]t's so dark you can smell the moon
[A]How dark is it? I[G]t's so dark the wind gets lost
[A]How dark is it? S[G]o dark the sky's on fire
A G (hold)
How dark is it? It's so dark you can see Fort Worth from here
(D-A-Em) x 6 then (D)
