The Last Nail  Dan Fogelberg

This is a beginning - listen to the song to get the hammer ons - not to
difficult. Rest In Peace Dan.
The Last Nail (capo up one to match album)
Intro - hammer on with C and F7
[C]I saw you [Am7]running ah[Em]ead of the [Em7]crowd
[F]I chased but never thought I'd cat[C]ch you [G]
[C]You said you[Am7] loved me but you [Em]had to be[Em7] free and I let yo[F]u
[F]Why did I let y[C]ou [G]
[C]We walked t[Am7]ogether through the [Em]gardens and g[Em7]raves
[F]I watched you grow to be a wom[C]an [G]
[C]Living on p[Am7]romises that [Em]nobody g[Em7]ave to no [F]one
[F]They were given to no on[C]e [Em] [A]
Electric break - A D Am D
( Tab from: )
[C]I started listening to the wind and the rain
You strained your ears but could hear nothing
One night I thought I heard them whisper my name
And I went running
I left a trail of footprints deep in the snow
I swore one day I would retrace them
But when I turned around I found that the wind had erased them
[F]Now I'll never replace[C] them [Em] [A]
Electric break
[G]Fly away[Em], my sweet bird, [A]over the [C]land
T[G]ake [Em]life for all the f[A]reedom you [C]can
[G]But if y[Em]ou ever [A]should need a[C] man
[C]Well, the [A]offer still [C]stands
break - starts with the C to F7 hammer on again.
[C]I hear you've ta[Am7]ken on a h[Em]usband and c[Em7]hild
And live somewhere in Pennsylvania
I never thought you'd ever sever the string but I can't blame you none
So let the ashes fall and lay where they will
Just say that once you used to know me
One last time sing that old song we used to know
But t[F]his time sing - Bu[F]t this time sing a little more slo[C]wly [Em] [A]
Ends with a hammer on from G to C
