Subject: CRD:   On The Radio         Emmylou Harris     Chords/Lyrics

Emmylou Harris     On The Radio  written by Donna Summer
                                            Giorgio Moroder

John McFee           guitar
Steve Fishell        steel guitar
Bill  Payne          keyboards
Keith Knudsen        drums
Mike Bowden          bass
Barry Tashian        acoustic guitar

Em                                          D    Dsus B7
Someone found a letter you wrote me, on the radio
Em                Am                 D    Dsus  D
And they told the world just how you felt
Gmaj7                                               C
It must have fallen out of a hole in your old brown overcoat
Am
They never said your name
                         D    B7
But I knew just who they meant
Em                                    D             Dsus B7
I was so surprised and shocked, and I wondered, too
Em               Am                D  Dsus
If by chance you heard it for yourself
Gmaj7                                          C
I never told a soul just how I've been feeling over you
     Am
But they said it really loud
     D               B7         Em
They said it on the air On the radio
Am       Bm            Em
Whoa, oh, oh On the radio
Am      Bm            Em
Whoa oh oh oh On the radio
Am      Bm              Em
Whoa, oh, oh  Whoa, oh, oh
    Em                                     D             Dsus B7
Now Don't it kinda strike you sad when you hear our song
Em                 Am                      D         Dsus D
Things are not the same since we broke up last June
Gmaj7                                        C
The only thing that I wanna hear is that you love me still
Am                                            D  B7
And that you think you'll be comin' home real soon

Whoa
Em                                         D   Dsus B7
And it made me feel proud when I heard you say
Em                    Am                D         Dsus D
You couldn't find the words to say it all yourself
Gmaj7                                       C
And now in my heart I know I can say what I really mean
Am
'Cause they said it really loud
     D               B7         Em
They said it on the air On the radio
Am       Bm            Em
Whoa, oh, oh On the radio
Am      Bm            Em
Whoa oh oh oh On the radio
Am      Bm              Em
Whoa, oh, oh  Whoa, oh, oh

SOLO

Em                                        D     Dsus  B7
If you think that love isn't found on the radio
Em                     Am                     D Dsus D
Well tune right in you may find the love you lost
Gmaj7                                                 C
'Cause now I'm sitting here with the man I sent away long ago
Am                         D              B
He found he really lied he said he realy lied
        Em
On the radio
Am      Bm            Em
Whoa oh oh oh On the radio
Am      Bm              Em
Whoa, oh, oh  Whoa, oh, oh

Gasp, this is such a haunting cover. I love what she does with it. It puts the song in a totally eerie light. Like (and I mean this in a compassionate, sad way) the singer is delusional. He never did return. That song on the radio had NOTHING to do with him. She's completely spinning dreams. I just noticed something. If the little red squiggly line appears under misspellings in these comments then why are there so many of them...never mind...ramble ramble... Thanks for the "excellent!" tab. Another question to no one...if a tab is perfectly accurate then would it only get 3 stars which lights up as "accurate"? That seems wrong. If a song has simple chords and someone gets them just right do they get 3 stars only because it was so simple? And That Is The End of This Novel. Thank you.
