John Cale - Buffalo Ballet (1974)
Chords 12/8-2013 by Jon Malmin (jogusmal@hotmail.com)
Tuning: Standard E

The verses and choruses all have the same chord progressions, so I'm only
including chords above the first one of each.

Intro: 
D  A  G  Em

D         A   G            D
When Abilene was young and gay
D              A   G               D
And thunder storms filled up the day
     G         D   G             D
The cattle roamed outside the town

A                      Em
Sleeping in the midday sun
                       D
Sleeping in the midday sun
A                      Em
Sleeping in the midday sun
                       D
Sleeping in the midday sun

Then tracks were lain across the plain
By broken, old men in torrid rain
The towns grew up and the people were still

Sleeping in the midday sun
Sleeping in the midday sun
Sleeping in the midday sun
Sleeping in the midday sun

    F          G            Bb         D
We all joined in and we'll all hold hands
           F         G         Bb         A
Yes, we'll all join in to help run the land
     G              Dmaj7
Then soldiers once, long, long ago
G                      Dmaj7
Rode through the town, rode down those

Sleeping in the midday sun
Sleeping in the midday sun
Sleeping in the midday sun
Sleeping in the midday sun

Gold came and went, quickly spent
And the people broke down and often drowned
From wealth and the pain of old Abilene

They were sleeping in the midday sun
Sleeping in the midday sun
Sleeping in the midday sun
Sleeping in the midday sun
