        Hummingbird (Wilco)

  C  Cmaj7 x2
      C       Cmaj7             C    Cmaj7
  His goal in life was to be an echo
  C                  Em               Dm
  Riding alone, town after town, toll after toll
    Fm                                              C       Cmaj7 C  Cmaj7
  A fixed bayonet through the great southwest to forget her

        C    Cmaj7    Em     G
  She appears in his dreams
Am                          Am(Maj7)
  But in his car and in his arms
                   Dm          Dm/F
  A dream can mean anything
    Fm                                     Eb
  A cheap sunset on a television set can upset her
  But he never could

    Em          E/D
  Remember to remember me
Em               E/D
  Standing still in your past
  E/D#                 C
  Floating fast like a hummingbird

      G       G/F#              Em    G/F#
  His goal in life was to be an echo
              G                                 G/F#
  The type of sound that floats around and then back down
  Like a feather
  But in the deep chrome canyons of the loudest Manhattans
  No one could hear him
  Or anything

         G  G/F#    Bm       D
  So he slept on a mountain
       Em                          Em/F#
  In a sleeping bag underneath the stars
                         Am          C
  He would lie awake and count them
  And the gray fountain spray of the great Milky Way
  Would never let him
  Die alone

   G          Bm
  Remember to remember me
Em               G7
  Standing still in your past
  C                     D
  Floating fast like a hummingbird

   G           Bm
  Remember to remember me
Em               G7
  Standing still in your past
  C                D
  Floating fast like a hummingbird

  A hummingbird
  A hummingbird

The C Cmaj7 C Cmaj7 should go like this:

C Cmaj7 C6 Cmaj7

The C6 looks like this (could also be a Cmaj6/7)
