Just A Drifter (capo 5) (key of C harmonica)

Chorus –
(Em) I may (G) leave here (C.) before I’m settled (G) in.
(Em) I ain’t (G) hard to please I’m just a (C.) drifter in dis(D)guise.
And if (C.) I’m still here to(G)morrow I’ll be (B7) around until I’m (Em)bound
‘til It’s (C.) time again to (D) pull on my old (C.) drifters boots for (G) size.

(Em) No one is born a (G) criminal I’m not (C.) escaping from the (D)law
I was (C.)down damnation (G) alley talking to (Em) echoes from the (D) walls
And the (D) nights of wild (G) dancing didn’t (C.) attract my love at (G)all
I’d (C.) been near love one (Am) thousand times and (Em) caught before I (D) fell. (Chorus)

As the (Em) late pioneer I (G) wonder if this (C.) loneliness will (G) last
(Em) I’d fight my reckless (G) way up and be a (Am) man of greater (D) class
But the (D) silver in the (G) rising moon would (C.) lead me once (G) again
To the (C.)windswept trails and (Am) nightingales that (Em) sing me to my (D) bench. (Chorus)

Nikki (Capo 2) D harmonica

C G Dm Am
She left her (Em) footprints in the (C.) sand
She left her childhood on the road
She never needed no one’s hands
She could find her way alone
Every word was like a (Am) puzzle
You could take a(G)part and (F) see
I could imagine all her (C.)life
Past and (G) present and (Dm) future (Am)dreams.

She ran with all the nightmare (C.)gangs
Felt the chills to her bones
Robbed herself of (G) virginity (Dm)
Innocence was never (Am) shown
She spoke in (G) circles and (F) echoes
Her vision crying to be (Am) seen
I could (Em) imagine all her (C.) life
Past and (G) present and (Dm) future (Am) dreams

C G Dm Am C G

She could (C.) try her hand at (G) kinship
Try to (Dm) love life like it (Am) was
(C.) Try to understand life’s (G) hardships
(Dm) What was underneath its (Am)cuts
But Nikki (G) spoke with a wistful (F) vengeance
And Nikki’d grumble when she’d (Am) breathe
I could imagine all her (C.) life
Past and (G) present and (Dm) future (Am) dreams.


After The Hurricane - Capo 2 (A harmonica)

Em G D Em G D
When you get (Em) alone in a (G) crowd and your world grows (D) thin
And the (Em) light doesn’t (G) even trickle (D) in
After the (A) hurricane (G) will you let me (D) live (Em)
The (C.)way you (G)said you (D)wished?

Call me (Em) down and I’ll (G) come and sleep in your (D) arms
And we’ll (Em) talk until the (G) ghosts of midnight are all (D) gone
After the (A) hurricane (G) don’t let me (D) down (Em) the (C.) way you (G) do to (D) some.

Promises you (Em) make and try to (G) keep are going to drive you (D) crazy
To think you’d even (Em) trust a (G) promise still amazes (D) me
After the (A) hurricane (G) please don’t (D) leave the (C.) way you (G) said you (D) dreamed.

The Story Man - G harmonica no capo

(G) When I (C.) walk out on my (G) own please see me (Em) through (C.) these changes (G) too. (D)
(G) Since you’ve (C.) been through hell and (G) back you should (Em) know
Where (C.) lies my (D) path.

Chorus-
I’ll be a (Em) story man I’ll be the (Bm) story man
When there’s (D) stories and not just dreams (C.) to be (G) spoken
And if I (Em) join your band I know you’ll (Bm) understand
I don’t (D) cry I’ll (C.) always be (G) forgiven (Em).

(G) I’ve been (C.) living in this (G) house since I was (Em) two and it’s (C.) time to (G) move.
(Em) I know I’m (C.) not too young to (G) love and I love (Em) you (C.) and these changes (D) too. (Chorus)

The Edges Of Belfast - capo 4

She was (C.) dancing on the oceanside as (G) he started the flames
He’d (C.) met her on the highway and they’d (G) learned each others names
(Am) Only time would tell him if she (Em) ever felt the same
Only (F) love – only (G) love
She (C.) whispered soft dreams to him and she (G) rose to say goodnight
(C.) Crept and found her next door tent lit (G) by the pale moonlight
She (Am) saw the future clearly there were (Em) clouds within his sight
Only (F) love – only (G) love

Chorus – (F) Desir(C.)ee – (G) set him (Am) free – from his (F) chains of (C.) dreams wrought with (G) gallan(Am)try.

The (C.) camped up north in Coolridge and they (G) camped up east in Kent
And they (C.) drank vodka in Rotterdam with (G) money saved for rent
He (Am) felt her drifting spirit as the (Em) mornings came and went
Only (F) love lonely (G) love
He (C.) told her of his mother how (G) remarkable she was
How he’d (C.) never found a woman who could (G) live life like she does
She (Am) said her father never changed she’s (Em) glad he bit the dust
Only (F) love only (G) love (Chorus)

The (C.) next morning by a campfire near a (G) mountain at Dunkirk
She (C.) mentioned she’d be drifting back to (G) Belfast for some work
In(Am)side he cried so softly but out(Em)side he kicked the dirt
Only (F) love only (G) love
So she (C.) left him cold one morning on the (G) edges of Belfast
He (C.) stared at thorny oatmeal flying (G) feelings at half mast
He (Am) wondered at the highway as (Em) she became the past
Only (F) love only (G) love (Chorus)

Your (Am) eyes were (Em) sad because you (C.) didn’t (Em) know

He knows not what he (A)wants but he takes what he’s (Em) got
As a sign that there’s no (A)more
But what he doesn’t know won’t (G)hurt him but it will hurt her just the (D) same
Hanging onto something (Em) tarnished (G)as long as he can get his (D)way CGD

It’s time they see where things are (A) going
(Em)They’ve never (G)seen where it’s (D)been
Happy couples strolling (A) by (Em) have never (G) taught her dreams to (A) swim
She’ll watch him have his cup of (G) coffee and wonder deep down why she (D) hides
The man is sinister she (A) worries
(Em) Deep (G) alone at night she (D) cries CGD

(D)She came and took him from his (A)heart (Em) and made him (G)see him with his (D) soul
Took him far away from (A)hurt (Em) and taught the (G) boy to rock and (A)roll
Maybe someday she will (G) see she should have done those things for (D) me
And someday I’ll be the (A) boy (Em) who will (G) fill her days with (D) joy CGD

Chorus
(Em)It was bound to happen soon a (Bm) sweet kiss embraced by the moon
(D) Further up the lonesome trials of (Am) time
(Em)She could find nobody there the (Bm) fog was thick her wet eyes stare through (D) dreams
Of a (C.)most (Em)nat(Am)ural (G)crime

(G)Echoing words of a (D)promise (C.)that he told her so (C.) ma(Em)ny (Am)nights be(G)fore.
(G)I will meet you in the (D) harbour (C.)and I will line your heart with (C.) sil(Em)ver (Am)and (G) gold. (Chorus)
