Boulder To Birmingham chords
Emmylou Harris

Capo III

G D

D                      G
I don't want to hear a love song 
Em            C                G
I got on this airplane just to fly 
    D
And I know there's life below me
                     Dsus4 D
But all that you can show  me 
       G                   (Gsus4 G *)
Is the prairie and the sky 

    D                          G
And I don't want to hear a sad story 
Em      C                G
Full of heartbreak and desire 
         D
The last time I felt like this 
                  Dsus4         G                 (Gsus4 G *)   
I was in the wilderness and the canyon was on fire 

    Em             A         C                             G
And I stood on the mountain, in the night and I watched it burn 
             D   D7             G
I watched it burn, I watched it burn. 

G               C                    G
I would rock my soul in the bosom of Abraham 
                D                  G
I would hold my life in his saving grace.
             C                           G
I would walk all the way from Boulder to Birmingham 
                     D   D7                G
If I thought I could see, I could see your face. 

D                       G
Well, you really got me this time 
        Em              C               G
And the hardest part is knowing I'll survive. 
               D
I have come to listen for the sound 
                           Dsus4
Of the trucks as they move down 
D      G     
Out on ninety five 

    Em                    A
And pretend that it's the ocean 
C                      G                 D    D7
coming down to wash me clean, to wash me clean 
                        G
Baby do you know what I mean 

G               C                    G
I would rock my soul in the bosom of Abraham 
                D                  G
I would hold my life in his saving grace.
             C                           G
I would walk all the way from Boulder to Birmingham 
                     D   D7                G
If I thought I could see, I could see your face. 

                     D   D7                G
If I thought I could see, I could see your face.

The only parts that ring out weirdly for me are the Dsus4 to D parts, like where you sing "all that you can show me". The "show" and "me" go from low to high and Dsus4 is higher than D so it sounds ... ugh, unless you reverse them and then it sounds okay. Same for the trucks as they move out part. I use a combination of Version 1 transposed down 3 and this bec. I like Version 1's D7 placements.

Thank you for your comments. I really do take note of all the good comments and suggestions I get. In this case ..it all depends on "which" version of her song she is playing. She does so many live versions. You can find her using a capo on I and a capo on III. She even sings this in another key on another version. So this version may not match the one you are listening to. I had to pick a version...this is the one.
But thanks again..

This is true. I seem to cement the original way I heard a song into my consciousness so that other versions sound "off" to me, even when it's the same artist. But what's odd is that I notice so consistently in your versions just that one plaintive string being hit or not that I think we might hear even the same songs, meaning the same exact versions, differently. Wouldn't that be interesting...like I have a sad filter on and you a happy one. I really appreciate all your tabs, and your response. Thank you.
