Somewhere in New Mexico  Jill Sobule

Beautiful, simple song that should've been up here a while ago.
I have a [C]friend, swear she saw [Em]Jesus
Hovering ab[Am]ove her lonely [F]bed
She said it [C]changed her life for[G]ever
[F]"Whatever w[G]orks" I s[C]aid
I sit with her changing channels
It's so hard to concentrate
I laugh at her, but I'm pretty sure
She's having a better day
So I will [F]lay on the [C]highway somewhere in [F]New Mexi[C]co
And [F]wait for a [Em]strange [Am]light to [F]come and [G]take me [C]home
Or I will [F]stand by the [C]statue and [F]wait for her to [C]cry
[F]To see real [G]tears that [Em]seem sinc[Am]ere [F]once be[G]fore I d[C]ie
The other night I talked to an old flame
Who finally said why he moved on
He said I didn't have faith in anything
I knew he wasn't wrong
I saw two lovers in the park
With that dreamy look of lust in their eyes
The whole world smiled as they passed by
They just make me mad
So I will lay on the highway somewhere in New Mexico
And wait for a strange light to come and take me home
Or I will stand by the statue and wait for her to cry
Take this jaded heart, blow it all apart, once before I die
[Em]I'll get down on my [F]knees, [G]something I don't bel[Am]ieve
[Em]Somebody help me [F]please, I'm [G]starting to repeat myself
I'm [G]starting to repeat myself
So I will lay on the highway somewhere in New Mexico
And wait for a strange light to come and take me home
Or I will stand by the statue and wait for her to cry
I'd love to see a miracle once before I die
Once before I die
