Standard tuning, capo 3

A           E                       A        A
There was a barn owl trapped in the rafters.
A               E                    A     A
The ground underneath us was wet and cold.
   A                        E
We heard the owl thrashing about,
       A                  D
Trying desperately to get out.
A           E                            A     A
We stood outside and watched the night unfold.

A              E              A        A
We watched the sun go down on Scotland,
A                 A                 E    E
and I watched the moon come up over you.
A                                 A
When a pack of dogs went silently past us,
D                            D
We knew we'd been given fair warning,
A                E             A     A
but that was the only thing we knew.

A                      E                    A      A
And you threw all your luggage out onto the water.
A              E                  A     A
And I tore the shirt away from my back.
A                                 E
The cold came on with a new found in-tensity, 
A                               D
And you pressed your warm body against me.
A                  E                     A     A
And I loved you so much it was making me sick.

A                  E              A         A
And we watched the sun go down on Scotland,
A                      A               E     E
We were glad that we'd left Oklahoma behind.
A                                  A
I took your hips in my hands and I threw you down
D                           D
To the new found rich brown deep wet ground.
A                    E             A      A
Had a vision of you, burning on my mind.

A              E              A        A
We watched the sun go down on Scotland,
A                 A                 E    E
and I watched the moon come up over you.
A                                 A
When a pack of dogs went silently past us,
D                            D
We knew we'd been given fair warning,
A                E             A     A
but that was the only thing we knew.
