[intro; the _entire_song_ uses these four chords, so I won't bother to put chords with the lyrics.] And you know the sun's setting fast And just like they say, nothing good ever lasts Well go on now, and kiss it goodbye But hold on to your lover, 'cause your heart's bound to die Go on now, and say goodbye to our town, to our town Can't you see the sun setting down on our town, on our town, goodnight Up the street beside the red neon light That's where I met my baby on one hot summer night He was the tender and I ordered a beer It's been forty years and I'm still sitting here But you know the sun's setting fast And just like they say, nothing good ever lasts Go on now, and kiss it goodbye But hold on to your lover, 'cause your heart's bound to die Go on now, and say goodbye to our town, to our town Can't you see the sun setting down on our town, on our town, goodnight It's here I had my babies and I had my first kiss I've walked down Main Street on the cold morning mist Over there is where I bought my first car It turned over once, but then it never went far And I can see the sun setting fast And just like they say, nothing good ever lasts Well go on now, and kiss it goodbye But hold on to your lover, 'cause your heart's bound to die Go on now, and say goodbye to our town, to our town Can't you see the sun setting down on our town, on our town, goodnight I buried my Mama and I buried my Pa They sleep up the street beside the pretty brick wall I bring 'em flowers about every day But I just gotta cry when I think what they'd say If they could see how the sun's setting fast And just like they say, nothing good ever lasts Go on now, and kiss it goodbye But hold on to your lover, 'cause your heart's bound to die Go on now, and say goodbye to our town, to our town Can't you see the sun setting down on our town, on our town, goodnight Now I set on the porch and watch the lightning bugs fly But I can't see too good, I got tears in my eyes I'm leaving tomorrow, but I don't wanna go I love you, my town, you'll always live in my soul But I can see the sun setting fast And just like they say, nothing good ever lasts Well go on now, I gotta kiss you goodbye But I'll hold to my lover, 'cause my heart's bound to die Go on now, and say goodbye to my town, to my town I can see the sun has gone down on my town, on my town, goodnight Goodnight ==-=--=---=----=-----=-------=---------=---------=-------=-----=----=---=--=-== Adam Schneider schn0170@maroon.tc.umn.edu Minneapolis, MN Mail me if you want guitar chords for Mary-Chapin Carpenter, Indigo Girls, Suzanne Vega, Lucinda Williams, etc. ==-=--=---=----=-----=-------=---------=---------=-------=-----=----=---=--=-==
