Indigo Girls – Fare Thee Well chords


C F Em7 Am7 Fare thee well, my bright star
F6 G C/BI watched your taillights blaze into nothingness
C F Em7 Am9 But you were long gone before I ever got to you
F6 G Am9 Am7 Before you blazed past this address
Dm7 Em F6 GAnd now I think of having loved and having lost
Dm7 Em F6 GYou never know what it's like to never love
Dm7 Em F6 GWho can say what's better when my heart's become the cost
Am7 D G A mere token of a brighter jewel sent from up above
C F Em7 Am7Fare thee well, my bright star
F6 G C/BThe vanity of youth, the color of your eyes
C F Em7 Am9Maybe if I'd fanned the blazing fire of your day-to-day
F6 G Am9 Am7Or if I'd been older I'd been wise
Dm7 Em F6 GToo thick the heat of those long summer evenings
Dm7 Em F6 GFor a cool evening I began to yearn
Dm7 Em F6 GBut you could only feed upon the things which feed a fire
Am7 D G Waiting to see if I would burn
C F Em7 Am7Fare thee well, my bright star
F6 G C/BIt was a brief brilliant miracle dive
C F Em7 Am9That which I looked up to and I clung to for dear life
F6 G Am9 Am7Had to burn itself up just to make itself alive
Dm7 Em F6 GAnd I caught you then, in your moment of glory
Dm7 Em F6 GYour last dramatic scene against a night sky stage
Dm7 Em F6 GWith a memory so clear it's as if you're still before me
Am7 D G My once in a lifetime star of an age
C F Em7 Am7So fare thee well, my bright star
F6 G C/BLast night the tongues of fire circled me around
C F Em7 Am9And this strange season of pain will come to pass
F6 G Am9 Am7When the healing hands of autumn cool me down
