Emmylou Harris    Bang The Drum Slowly  written by Guy Clark
                                                   Emmylou Harris
A D AI meant to ask you how to fix that car
D A I always meant to ask you about the war
F#m D AAnd what you saw across a bridge too far
EDid it leave a scar
A D AOr how you navigated wings of fire and steel
D A Up where heaven had no more secrets to conceal
F#m D AAnd still you found the ground beneath your wheels
EHow did it feel
D ABang the drum slowly play the pipe lowly
E ATo dust be returning from dust we begin
D ABang the drum slowly I'll speak of things holy
F#m D A E AAbove and below me world without end
A D AI meant to ask you how when everything seemed lost
D AAnd your fate was in a game of dice they tossed
F#m D AThere was still that line that you would never cross
EAt any cost
A D AI meant to ask you how you lived what you believed
D AWith nothing but your heart up your sleeve
F#m D AAnd if you ever really were deceived
EBy the likes of me
D ABang the drum slowly play the pipe lowly
E ATo dust be returning from dust we begin
D ABang the drum slowly I'll speak of things holy
F#m D A E AAbove and below me world without end
E DGone now is the day and gone the sun
AThere is peace tonight all over Arlington
E DBut the songs of my life will still be sung
A EBy the light of the moon you hung
A D AI meant to ask you how to plow that field
D AI meant to bring you water from the well
F#m D AAnd be the one beside you when you fell
ECould you tell
D ABang the drum slowly play the pipe lowly
E ATo dust be returning from dust we begin
D ABang the drum slowly I'll speak of things holy
F#m D A E AAbove and below me world without end
