Mendocino County line    (video)

 

    C - F

 

             C

1. We counted the stars on the Fourth of July,

      F                                           G

    wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky.

      C                                            Am

    Talking about redemption and leaving things behind,

                 F                                G                          C      - F

    as the sun sank west of the Mendocino County line.

 

           C

2. As fierce as Monday morning feeling washed away,

        F                                        G

    I orchestrated paradise, but couldn't make you stay.

             C                                            Am

    You dance with horses through the sands of time,

                 F                                 G                          C     - C7

    as the sun sinks west of the Mendocino County line.

 

F                                                                        G

 I have these pictures and I keep these photographs

                                      - F                                                      G

to remind me of a time,        these pictures and these photographs.

                                    F

let me know I'm doing fine,

                                          Am

I used to make you happy once upon a time

              F                                G                          C      - F

but the sun sank west of the Mendocino County line.

 

            C

3. The two of us together felt nothing but right,

       F                                          G

    feeling near immortal every Friday night.

      C                                          Am

    Lost in our convictions, lips stained with wine,

                 F                                G                          C       - C7

    as the sun sank west of the Mendocino County line.

 

+  CHORUS

 

    Bb                                                F

+        I don't talk to you too much these days,

Bb                                                       C

    I just thank the Lord pictures don't fade.

Bb                                          - F

    I spent time with an angel          just passing through,

G                                       G7

    now all that's left is this image of you.

4. We counted the stars on the Fourth of July,

      F                                           G

    wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky.

    Talking about redemption and leaving things behind.

to remind me of a time,        these pictures and these photographs.

                                        Am

We used to be so happy once upon a time

but the sun sank west of the Mendocino County line.
