Jim Lauderdale – “Midnight Will Become Day”

F# B F#
An eclipse like this rarely will happen
B F#
A shade is made few ever see
B F#
How the alignment is decided and seasons travel
F# B F#
Remains unexplained till somebody tries
C# B F#
I’m glad that you had the courage
C# B F#
To live what you wanted to say
C# B F#
The garden is starting to flourish
D#m C# F#
And midnight will become day
D#m C# F#
Oh Midnight will become day

SOLO

C# B F#
I’m glad that you had the courage
C# B F#
To live what you wanted to say
C# B F#
The garden is starting to flourish
D#m C# F#
And midnight will become day
D#m C# F#
Oh Midnight will become day
F# B F#
Stormes born sails torn far from the shoreline
F# B F#
Safe at home having flown those perilous flights
F# B
Every single little twinkle is brighter than imagined
F# B F#
Like you did as a kid you’re watching them fall
C# B F#
I’m glad that you had the courage
C# B F#
To live what you wanted to say
C# B F#
The garden is starting to flourish
D#m C# F#
And midnight will become day
D#m C# F#
Oh Midnight will become day
C# B F#
I’m glad that you had the courage
C# B F#
To live what you wanted to say
C# B F#
The garden is starting to flourish
D#m C# F#
And midnight will become day
D#m C# F#
Oh Midnight will become day
