Capo on 2nd fret C* They were hiding behind hay bales, F C They were planting in the full moon C C/B Am7 Am7/G F G They had given all they had for something new C* But the light of day was on them, F C They could see the thrashers coming C C/B Am7 And the water shone like diamonds Am7/G F G In the dew. F G And I was just getting up, C* F F* F Hit the road before it's light F G C* Cmaj7 C Cmaj7 C Trying to catch an hour on the sun F G When I saw those thrashers rolling by, C C/B Am7 Am/C Looking more than two lanes wide Dm7 G I was feelin' like my day had just begun. C* Where the eagle glides ascending F C There's an ancient river bending C C/B Am7 Am7/G Down the timeless gorge of changes F G where sleeplessness awaits C* I searched out my companions, F C Who were lost in crystal canyons C C/B Am7 When the aimless blade of science Am7/G F G Slashed the pearly gates. F G It was then I knew I'd had enough, C* F F* F Burned my credit card for fuel F G C Headed out to where the pavement turns to sand F G With a one-way ticket to the land of truth C C/B Am7 Am7/G And my suitcase in my hand Dm7 G How I lost my friends I still don't understand. C* They had the best selection, F C* They were poisoned with protection C* C/B Am7 Am7/G There was nothing that they needed, F G Nothing left to find C* They were lost in rock formations F C Or became park bench mutations C C/B Am7 Am7/G On the sidewalks and in the stations F G They were waiting, waiting. F G So I got bored and left them there, C F F* F They were just deadweight to me F G C Better down the road without that load F G Brings back the time when I was eight or nine C Am7 Am7/G I was watchin' my mama's T.V., Dm7 G It was that great Grand Canyon rescue episode. C* Where the vulture glides descending F C On an asphalt highway bending C C/B Am7 Am7/G Thru libraries and museums, F G Galaxies and stars C* Down the windy halls of friendship F C To the rose clipped by the bullwhip C C/B Am7 The motel of lost companions Am7/G F G Waits with heated pool and bar. F G But me I'm not stopping there, C F F* F Got my own row left to hoe F G C Just another line in the field of time F G When the thrasher comes I'll be stuck in the sun C Am7 Am7/G Like the dinosaurs in shrines Dm7 But I'll know the time has come G To give what's mine.
