From the CD: Five Days in July
Words and Music by: Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor
Transcribed by: (Drake Hirasawa)
Lyrics copied from Blue Rodeo website:
Key: Em
[Em] [D] [Am] [C]  
[Em]They met in a hurricane
[D]Standing in the shelter out of the rain
[Am]She tucked a note into his [C]hand
[Em]Later on they took his car
[D]Drove on down where the beaches are
[Am]He wrote her name in the [C]sand
[G]Never even [F]let go of her [C]hand[D]
Somehow they stayed that way
For those 5 days in May
Made all the stars around them shine
Funny how you can look in vain
Living on nerves and such sweet pain
The loneliness that cuts so fine
To find the face you've seen a thousand times
[C]Sometimes the world begins
[C]To set you up on your feet again
[Bm]It wipes the tears from your [D]eyes
[C]How will you ever know
[C]The way that circumstances go
[Bm]Always going to hit you by sur[D]prise
I [Am]know my past
[G/B]You were there
In [C]everything I've [Em7/C]done
You are the [Em]one
Looking back it's hard to tell
Why they stood while others fell
Spend your life working it out
All I know is one cloudy day
They both just ran away
Rain on the windshield heading South
She loved the lines around his mouth
Use an alternating bass/strum pattern, except for last four lines of
chorus (from "I know my past...") where the chords are finger-plucked
on strings 2 through 5 only. Those chords are:
Am X0221X
G/B X2000X
C X3201X
Em7/C X3243X
