Emmylou Harris    Bang The Drum Slowly  written by Guy Clark
                                                   Emmylou Harris
A                   D               A
I meant to ask you how to fix that car
  D                                 A 
I always meant to ask you about the war
F#m              D                   A
And what you saw across a bridge too far
               E
Did it leave a scar
           A         D                 A
Or how you navigated wings of fire and steel
         D                             A                    
Up where heaven had no more secrets to conceal
F#m                     D                    A
And still you found the ground beneath your wheels
           E
How did it feel
D                    A
Bang the drum slowly play the pipe lowly
   E                      A
To dust be returning from dust we begin
D                         A
Bang the drum slowly I'll speak of things holy
F#m       D        A      E      A
Above and below me world without end
A                           D                 A
I meant to ask you how when everything seemed lost
D                                        A
And your fate was in a game of dice they tossed
F#m                            D               A
There was still that line that you would never cross
       E
At any cost
           A                D              A
I meant to ask you how you lived what you believed
     D                              A
With nothing but your heart up your sleeve
F#m             D           A
And if you ever really were deceived
                E
By the likes of me
D                    A
Bang the drum slowly play the pipe lowly
   E                      A
To dust be returning from dust we begin
D                         A
Bang the drum slowly I'll speak of things holy
F#m       D        A      E      A
Above and below me world without end
E                                 D
Gone now is the day and gone the sun
        A
There is peace tonight all over Arlington
        E                              D
But the songs of my life will still be sung
       A                     E
By the light of the moon you hung
           A       D                A
I meant to ask you how to plow that field
D                                   A
I meant to bring you water from the well
    F#m        D                   A
And be the one beside you when you fell
          E
Could you tell
D                    A
Bang the drum slowly play the pipe lowly
   E                      A
To dust be returning from dust we begin
D                         A
Bang the drum slowly I'll speak of things holy
F#m       D        A      E      A
Above and below me world without end

the reason i wanted to post this song was because of the baseball movie that Robert Dinero (sp?) was in. one of the characters on that movie sings his own version of this.....it's better i think.

on youtube you can get the whole song and all it is is transitions between C and G7. cheers.
