Sky Blue and Black  Jackson Browne

This is Vincent J. Florio's transcription. I just changed the Dm to F:
[C]In the calling out to one another
Of the [Am]lovers up and down the strand
[F]In the sound of the waves and the cries
Of the [G]seagulls circling the sand
[C]In the fragments of the songs
Carried down the [Am]wind from some radio
[F]In the murmuring of the city in the distance
[G]Ominous and low
[C]I hear the sound of a [Am]world where we played
And the [F]far too simple beauty of the[G] promises we made
[Am]If you ever need [F]holding
[C]Call my name, [G]I'll be there
[Am]If you ever need[F] holding
And no [C]holding back, I'll see you [G]through
[C]Sky [Am]blue and black
[Dm]//music[G] w/o lyrics//
[C]Where the touch of the lover ends
And the [Am]soul of the friend begins
There's a [Dm]need to be separate and a need to be one
And a [G]struggle neither wins
[C]Where you gave me the world I was in
And a [Am]place I could make a stand
(And) I could [F]never see how you doubted me
When I'd [G]let go of your hand
[C]Yeah, and [Am]I was much younger then
And I [F]must have thought that I'd have known
If [G]things were going to end
[Am]And the heavens were [F]rolling
[C]Like a wheel on a [G]track
[Am]And our sky was un[F]folding
[C] And it'll never fold [G]back
[C]Sky blue and [Am]black
[Dm]//music[G] w/o lyrics//
I'd have [Am]fought the world for you
(I'd have [F]fought the world for you)
If I [C]thought that you want[G]ed me to
Or put [Am]aside what was true or [G]untrue
If I'd [C]known that's what you needed
[G]What you needed me to do
[C]But the moment has [Am]passed by me now
To have [F]put away my pride
And just come [G]through for you somehow
[Am]If you ever need[F] holding
[C]Call my name,[G] I'll be there
[Am]If you ever need[F] holding
And no [C]holding back, I'll see you [G]through
[C]You're the color of the sky
Reflected in each [Am]store-front window pane
[F]You're the whispering and the sighing
Of my [G]tires in the rain
[C]You're the hidden cost and the thing that's [Am]lost in everything I do
[Dm]Yeah and I'll [G]never stop [C]looking for you
[Am]//music w/o lyrics//
[F]In the sunlight and the shadows
And the [G]faces on the avenue
[C]That's the way love is
[Am]That's the way love is
[Dm]That's the way love is
[G]Sky blue and [C]black
