The Great Park - We could have, we should have, we didn't
www.woodlandrecordings.com/thegreatparknews.htm

Capo 2nd

Verse: Am - Em7 - G - Am
Chorus: C - G - Am

              Am                     Em7
Through these streets I run like I'm hunted tonight
     G                  Am
on a fast breath that believes
    Am              Em7
in everything holy ghost like and true
        G                        Am
and the promise of your want for me

   C              G               Am
We could have, we should have, we didn't


I was born in a small town, I haven't grown tall
like the giants the open plains make
They are larger than life and nearly eight feet high
and are born to ten thousand days

We could have, we should have, we didn't

And given the choice, boys will be boys
and will throw things they never should hold
And the older we get, the more we forget
the wonder of that first throw

We could have, we should have, we didn't

Well I kept my calm when the chapel collapsed
but I left there as fast as I could
The roof buckeld and broke and now that it's gone
all the rain falls onto the pews

We could have, we should have, we didn't

So take forty flags and fifty three poles
and build a fence up with them all
A man should have reason to turn back at that
but they just plow right on

We could have, we should have, we didn't

So the road it got lost and it's all my fault
and it's my job to find it again
Help was at hand but the best laid plans
have dumped us in no man's land

We could have, we should have, we didn't

A field of rape, a fence of beech wood
a blue wide sky high above

The guard house, the gate house, the barn and the yard
any piece of this is enough

We could have, we should have, we didn't

I bought books for the fire and wine for the sea
and paper to hang off the trees
I would settle for less for peace and a rest
but these Thins are elusive to me

We could have, we should have, we didn't

Is there a basic good, a common ground
a line that's been drawn in the sand
Well we've crossed it and scuffed it and rubbed the thing out
and we do not give a damn

We could have, we should have, we didn't
We could have, we should have, we didn't
We could have, we should have, we didn't
