Stan Rogers - Take It From Day To Day chords


Take it from day to day
Stan Rogers
Album: From Coffee House to Concert Hall (2000)

Verse 1:
G C D GWell, it's not the hours of watch-on-watch,
G C D EmAnd it's not the work that I mind so much,
G COr the long cold miles from my lover's touch,
G Am D'Though for sure she's far away.
G C D GNo stranger, I, to the touch of steel,
G C D EmOr the honest fear any man can feel,
G CBut I long for dust under my heels
G Am And a pocket full of pay
C G D GSo I'll take it from day to day.
Verse 2:
G C D GThe pack-ice 'round us cracks and groans;
G C D EmThe old St. Roch, she creaks and moans.
G CThe icy fog is in my bones,
G Am DAnd the ache won't go away.
G C D GOutside I bet it's warm and fair.
G C D EmI could have her fingers in my hair,
G CBut it's long, cold miles to her out there
G Am So I guess I'll have to stay
C G D GAnd just take it from day to day!
Chorus:
D G CWe're as far North now as I want to come,
C GBut Larsen's got us under his thumb,
D G CAnd I signed up for the whole damned run,
Am DI can't get off half way.
G C D GBut when I get back unto the shore,
G C D EmI'm going South where it stays warm,
G CAnd there'll be someone on my arm
G AmTo help me spend my pay,
C G D GSo I'll take it from day to day.
(fiddle solo over same chords as verse) (repeat chorus) (fiddle solo over first half of verse)
G C D GNo stranger, I, to the touch of steel
G C D EmAnd the honest fear any man can feel,
G CBut I long for dust under my heels
G AmAnd a pocket full of pay,
C G D GSo I'll take it from day to day.
