Song for the Julian Calendar

tabbed by Rosa (mostly)

D:     xx0232
Dsus2: xx0230 or xx0030
G/C:   xxx533 
G/B:   xxx433
G/A:   xxx233
G:     320033
Csus2: x32033

D Dsus2 G/C x4 (listen to the song for the rhythm)

D Dsus2 G/C
sun twinkling on the river this evening
i tasted chocolate on my tongue
darkness climbing up the ladders to the sky
rung by agonizing rung

G/C G/B G/A G x2 (again, listen to the song for the rhythm)

i heard firecrackers popping next door
wondered what it is i bargained for        Csus2
when i lay quiet on the floor and you were knocking

let me be your witness
let me walk out on the edge
the sun refused to shine on my backyard today
darkness climbing up the house
coming through the window ledge

i saw the firecrackers bursting on the sidewalk
i heard you talking your baby talk
i saw the bright lights again and
i felt the shock when you were knocking


play through the whole verse sequence again once, then end on G
