    PAUL McCARTNEY - CALICO SKIES. From FLAMING PIE album. 
                     Released 12th May 1997.

----------------------------------------------------------

    Tabbed by PJVillanueva             





It was written that I would love you
From the moment I opened my eyes
And the morning when I first saw you
Gave me life under Calico skies.

I will hold you for as long as you like
I'll hold you for the rest of my life

Always looking for ways to love you
Never failing to fight at your side
While the angels of love protect us
From the innermost secrets we hide

I'll hold you for as long as you like
I'll hold you for the rest of my life

Long live all of us, crazy soldiers 
Who were born under Calico skies
May we never be called to handle
All the weapons of war we despise

I'll hold you for as long as you like
I'll hold you for the rest of my life
I'll hold you for as long as you like
I'll love you for the rest of my ...
For the rest of my life




      To match this track you must tune 
      your guitar a half step down.
