New Years Day chords by Slaid Cleaves

Slaid Cleaves Chords

rmofle at

[D]                       [G]                [D]
You might think there's nothing left but ashes
     [D]        [G]                 [D]
In a box on a table at Crosby's Bar
            [G]                   [A]               [D]        [D/C#]     [Bm] 
But there's more than meets the eye, you didn't leave us when you died
     [G]                              [A]
Your spirit will live on in what we do and who we are 

Aunt Betty's gonna tell us stories 'bout the family
Daughter Susan is gonna sing your favorite song
Cousin Perry will spend the day tellin' tales of the blue and gray
And the Cajun will keep pickin' all night long 

We'll be putting down the brisket and tequila
Down in Kerrville with the Seekers of the Shade
'Cause a piece of you lives on, not only in this song
But in all the lives you touched and every friendship that you made 

Chorus 1:
            [G]                  [A]                  [D]  
We're gonna go up to Maine and eat some clams and lobsters
[G]                     [A]            [D]
Bite the worm down in sunny Cancun bay
         [G]                 [A]           [D]         [D/C#]    [Bm]
We'll be home by Christmas Eve tellin' tales you won't believe
          [G]              [A]                     [D]
And we'll swim in Barton Springs on New Year's Day 

Well Greg's gonna walk the aisles up at Carlisle
Bringing smiles just like you used to do
Uncle Dave's got a whiskey toast, I'll be driving from coast to coast
And your smilin' face will live on in the heart of widow Sue 

We're gonna jump across the mighty Mississippi
Way up north where it's just a little stream
Brother Bill's gonna keep an eye on the kin you left behind
For you taught us how to live and you showed us how to dream 

Chorus 1
Chorus 2:
Yeah, we're gonna go up to Maine and suck on the heads of lobsters
Like a Cajun gone home to Frenchman Bay
We'll be home by Christmas Eve tellin' tales you won't believe
And we'll swim in Barton Springs on New Year's Day
