Of Missing Persons  Jackson Browne

Of missing persons ? Jackson Browne (Album: Hold Out)
|Am |F |C/E F |C/G |
|E |Am |F/G |C |
Your [Am]father was a [F]rounder he [C/E]played that [F]rock and [C/G]roll
A [E]leaper and a [Am]bounder down [F/G]to his gypsy [C]soul
The [Am]music was his [F]angel and [C/E]sorrow [F]was his [C/G]star
And [E]those of us who [Am]follow might [F/G]hope to reach as [C]far
They're [Dm]walking [Em]slow in [F]Houston [C/G]speechless [E/G#]in D.[Am]C.
There's [Dm]no way [Em]I could [F]tell you what he meant to [C/G]me[G]
Your [Am]mother's a sur[F]vivor she'll [C/E]do what [F]must be [C/G]done
Her [E]children will re[Am]vive her and [F/G]help her see the [C]sun
She [Am]almost knew that [F]unison but the [C/E]singing s[F]topped too [C/G]soon
[E]Now she shares the [Am]silence with a [F/G]man up in the [C]moon
To [Dm]speak of [Em]missing [F]persons [C/G]tonight there's [E/G#]only [Am]one
And [Dm]we all [Em]carry [F]with us what the man's be[C/G]gun[G]
And you can [F/G]sing this [C]song on [F/C]July the [C]Fourth
In the [F/C]sunny [C]south and the [F/C]frozen [C]north
It's a [F/C]day of [C]loss, it's your [F]day of [E]birth
Does it take a [Am]death to learn what a [F/G]life is worth?
Your [Am]brothers are all [F]older and they'll [C/E]take it [F]in their [C/G]stride
The [E]world's a little [Am]colder but [F/G]manhood's on their [C]side
Now [Am]you're the little [F]girl-child and you [C/E]look so [F]much like [C/G]him
And [E]he's right there in[Am]side you each [F/G]time you want to [C]sing
[Dm]Sing of [Em]missing [F]persons to[C/G]night there's [E/G#]only [Am]one
But [Dm]he's where [Em]you can [F]find him when it's said and [C/G]done[G]
And we will [F/G]sing this [C]song on [F/C]July the [C]Fourth
From the [F/C]sunny [C]south and the [F/C]frozen [C]north
This will [F/C]always [C]be your [F]day of [E]birth
May you always [Am]see what your life is [F/G]worth

And you can [F/G]sing this [C]song on [F/C]July the [C]Fourth
In the [F/C]sunny [C]south and the [F/C]frozen [C]north
It's a [F/C]day of [C]loss, it's your [F/C]day of [C]birth
