Jonas Alaska – October chords

Ripped from

Capo 5.

C Am FOn a day just like this on the ocean four years
Cago now
C Am The wind was to strong the waves were to big
F Cthree young men were thrown of the bow
Fmaj7and I was at home they were fighting towards
G7 mother earth
Am7 Em7 and two of them died only twenty years after
Ftheir birth
Cin october oh
C AmAnd the last of the three was left hopelessly
F C crying for help
C Am The wind was screaming but the silence was
F Cstronger as he stood with his feet in the kelp
Fmaj7 The sun was still up but it was night time when
G7I heard who died
Am7 Em7 I only knew eric cause one time he gave me a
Cin october oh
C AmNow I didn't know him well but I liked him he
F Cwas one of those guys
C Am that everyone knew either liked him or not
F Ccause there were no sign of lies in his eyes
Fmaj7I was seventeen years old the last time he
G7 spoke to me
Am7 Em7Now I'm twenty one and I'm older than he'll
Fever be
Cin october oh
C Am FMy father is his mothers cousin so that makes
C us kin
C AmI remember those family dinners and the old
F C peoples funerals again and again
Fmaj7so strange looking round in the crowd when he
G7 wouldn't be found
Am7 Em7 oh the look on the face of his brother when
C they lowered him down
Cin october oh
C Am FOctober is the best turns roads into beautiful
C AmThe rime on the windows the leafs on your coat
F C the frost on the cars and the rails
Fmaj7Still out on the ocean those memories are
G7bringing me down
Am7 Em7but I've heard there's a symphony playing you
F to sleep when you drown
COctober again and again
