Track Name: Red Bird
PLAY ALONG!

intro G Em G Em

G
when the red bird flies in winter
over gray and gloomy skies
Em
we awaken from our slumber
we stand tall and start to rise

G
when the red bird flies at midnight
we turn and go to sleep
Em
when the red bird flies at morning
we'll be dancing in our street

D
soloman had 1,000 wives
but you my friend have just one life

G
pass the chicken pass the gravy
pass a piece of pumpkin pie
Em
over ornamental coasters
oe'r a pint or two or five

G
we are talkers we are laughers
we are dancers in disguise
Em
we are ruffians, we are burglars
and we like our fat beats tight

D
free to do anything
a bottle of wine in onion rings

[bridge: G (GABb) Bm (BBb) Am Am7 D 2X]
solo over vs. (G Em G Em)

D
infinity, eternity not the same thing
one's all twisty, the other's a wedding ring

G
when the red bird flies in winter
over gray and gloomy skies
Em
we awaken from our slumber
we stand tall and start to rise

G
when the red bird flies at midnight
we turn and go to sleep
Em
when the red bird flies at morning
we'll be dancing in our street

solo 2 (G Em G Em)

D
see the flowers in the field
now imagine how they feel
Track Name: Life Imitates Art
PLAY ALONG!

F C Dm
melinda mc cue and marjorie mayne
F C Dm
two widows alone in a cape cod in Maine
F C Dm
would reminisce at lunch

F C Dm
of husbands long dead and lovers gone by
F C Dm
like the mist of the ocean in morning time
F C F
they'd say some things as such…

Bb F
some times i miss the land
C Gm F
other times i miss the sea
Bb F
some times i feel like a slave
F C Dm
to the tender memory
F C F
other times i know i'm free

F C Dm
sometimes it cuts me to the heart
F C Dm
when the mystery's real and life imitates art
F C Dm

F C Dm
sometimes it chills me to the bone
F C Dm
when i hear your voice come through the phone
F C F
some times it's all too much

Bb F
sometimes i miss it all
C Gm F
other times it misses me
Bb F
sometimes i feel like a slave
F C Dm
to your tender memory
F Bb F
other times i'm almost free

F C Dm
sometimes it gets me right there
F C Dm
when the leaves of the trees are the color of your hair
F C Dm
sometimes you are too much

F C Dm
sometimes i follow the veins on your hand
F C Dm
over mountains of bone like a marching band
F C F
sometimes you're all I see

Bb F
some times i miss the land
C Gm F
other times i miss the sea
Bb F
some times i feel like a slave
F C Dm
to the tender memory
F C F
other times i know i'm free
