Capo 2

Asus2: x-o-2-2-3-0
Em: 0-2-2-0-0-0
G: 3-2-0-0-3-3

[D] Settling down with [Asus2] warm glow woodstove and [Em] kerosene
Peace you’re [G] looking for, peace you’ll [Asus2] find
In the [D] tangled mad [Asus2] cliff sides and [G] crashing dark
Of Big [Em] Sur, of Big [D] Sur

[D] Rapturous ring of [Asus2] silence, Pacific [Em] fury
Flashing on the [G] rocks, the sea shroud [Asus2] towers
The [D] innocence of [Asus2] health and stillness in the [G] wilds
Of Big [Em] Sur, of Big [D] Sur

The whole [G] surface of the world as we know it [D] now
Will be [Em] covered with the silt of a billion years in [G] time [D]

[D] I see as much [Asus2] as doors will [Em] allow
A long way [G] from the Beat gener[Asus2]ation
[D] Here comes the nightly [Asus2] moth to its nightly [G] death
In Big [Em] Sur, in Big [D] Sur

[D] The best thing to [Asus2] do is not be [Em] false
The rocks of the [G] valley left no howl of [Asus2] complaint
[D] And I’m just a sick clown [Asus2] and so is [G] everybody else
In Big [Em] Sur, in Big [D] Sur
