G1 G2 D

i opened up the window and the cold air came in.
and i saw a bird on a branch outside that i had never
seen before.
he looked like a robin, but it had an upside down v-shaped
red mark on its chest. and i had a
special feeling in my mind, i had a
special feeling in my mind, i had a
certain glint in my eye,
on the morning when trouble came by.

there was a map of the american-midwest on one wall. and there was a
map of the american-west on another wall. and there was a
map of rome on the third wall. and there were
maps in all directions. i was
looking at them pondering connections when
trouble came by.

then i stuck my head out the window.
i had to stick my head out the window. it was
much colder than i'd imagined it would be. it was
much much colder than i'd imagined it would be. it was
much much colder. it was
much much colder and trouble came by.
