Got up before dawn
 Fmaj7                     C Fmaj7
Went down to the racetrack
C
Riding with the windows down
 Fmaj7                    C             Fmaj7
Shortly after your first heart attack

 Am                    C
You parked behind the paddock
 Am                  C
Cracking asphalt underfoot
 Am                      C
Coming up through the cracks
   G                    C
Pale green things, pale green things

C
You watched the horses run their workouts
 Fmaj7                                     C Fmaj7
You held your stopwatch in your left hand
C
And a racing form beneath your arm
 Fmaj7                          C           Fmaj7
Casting your gaze way out to no man's land

 Am                       C
Sometimes I'll meet you out there
 Am           C
Lonely and frightened
 Am                             C
Flicking my tongue out at the wet leaves
   G                   C
Pale green things, pale green things

C
My sister called at 3 A.M.
 Fmaj7              C Fmaj7
Just last December
C
And she told me how you'd died at last, at last
 Fmaj7                                     C                Fmaj7
And that morning at the racetrack was one thing I remember

 Am                      C
I turned it over in my mind
 Am                     C
Like a living Chinese finger trap
 Am                    C
Seaweed and Indiana Sawgrass
