This is a great Canadian song about a tornado that devastated Edmonton on July 31st, 1987.  
That day has come to be known as Black Friday.


This is the strumming pattern used in the first line, 
of which variations are used throughout the song.  
The same patterns for the chords are used, 
but with different chord progressions.

Corrected Lyrics

(verse 1)
Oh lord I lost you, I held you tight
Oh, I
Will hold onto your love in the night
And the black sky will come before our eyes
Oh, why
Let's lie down in the basement tonight
Oh...

(verse 2)
Oh lord I found you, I held you tight
Oh, why
And the buildings are pulled into the sky
And our hearts shaking in the summer night
Oh, why
Let's lie down in the basement tonight
Oh...

(chorus)
I let you go, I let you go
I let you know that I hold you
Black sky comes to take you from me
I let you know that I hold you

I let you go, I let you go
I let you know that I hold you
Black sky comes, black sky comes,
Black sky comes and I hold you

(verse 3)
Oh lord I found you, I held you tight
Oh, why
And the black sky's above our house tonight
And our hearts breaking in the empty night
Oh, why
Let's lie down in the basement tonight
Oh...

(chorus)
I let you go, I let you go
I let you know that I hold you
Black sky comes to take you from me
I let you know that I hold you

I let you go, I let you go
I let you know that I hold you
Black sky comes to take you from me
I let you know that I hold you

(verse 4)
Oh, lord I lost you, I held you tight
Oh, why
And the black sky will come for us tonight
And our heart's shaking in the empty night
Oh, why
Let's lie down in the basement tonight
Oh...

(chorus)
I let you go, I let you go
I let you know that I hold you
Black sky comes to take you from me
I let you know that I hold you

I let you die, I let you die
I let you die and I hold you
Black sky comes, black sky comes
Black sky comes and I hold you
