F Em G
or of a lover who had
F Em G
gone in a moment of
Am Em G
strife

[Pedal Steel Guitar solo over the same chords]

F Em G
done in just one short
Am Em G
life?

CHORUS
Am Em G
And there you sit tomorrow’s
Am Em G
child, so full of love so full of
Am Em G
life, but you must rise to meet the
Am Em G
day, lest you become another
Am Em G
tale, and there you sit tomorrow’s …(repeat CHORUS and FADE)
