Our Town chords chords
Iris DeMent 1992

Capo II

A D A E

A                D
And you know the sun's settin' fast,
    A                           E
And just like they say, nothing good ever lasts.
      A             D
Well, go on now and kiss it goodbye,
    A
But hold on to your lover,
            E
'Cause your heart's bound to die.

A             D              A            E
Go on now and say goodbye to our town, to our town.
A                 D                     A            E
Can't you see the sun's settin' down on our town, on our town,
    A     D A E   A
Goodnight.

A                         D
Up the street beside that red neon light,
       A                          E
That's where I met my baby on one hot summer night.
A                       D
He was the tender and I ordered a beer,
     A                        E
It's been forty years and I'm still sitting here.

A                D
But you know the sun's settin' fast,
    A                           E
And just like they say, nothing good ever lasts.
      A             D
Well, go on now and kiss it goodbye,
    A
But hold on to your lover,
            E
'Cause your heart's bound to die.

A             D              A            E
Go on now and say goodbye to our town, to our town.
A                 D                     A            E
Can't you see the sun's settin' down on our town, on our town,
    A     D A E   A
Goodnight.

     A                          D
It's here I had my babies and I had my first kiss.
     A                              D
I've walked down Main Street in the cold morning mist.
     A                D
Over there is where I bought my first car.
   A                            E
It turned over once but then it never went far.

    A             D
And I can see the sun's settin' fast,
    A                           E
And just like they say, nothing good ever lasts.
      A             D
Well, go on now and kiss it goodbye,
    A
But hold on to your lover,
            E
'Cause your heart's bound to die.

A             D              A            E
Go on now and say goodbye to our town, to our town.
A                 D                     A            E
Can't you see the sun's settin' down on our town, on our town,
    A     D A E   A
Goodnight.

  A                    D
I buried my Mama and I buried my Pa.
     A                               E
They sleep up the street beside that pretty brick wall.
  A                   D
I bring them flowers about every day,
      D                     E
But I just gotta cry when I think what they'd say.

   A                      D
If they could see how the sun's settin' fast,
    A                           E
And just like they say, nothing good ever lasts.
      A             D
Well, go on now and kiss it goodbye,
    A
But hold on to your lover,
            E
'Cause your heart's bound to die.

A             D              A            E
Go on now and say goodbye to our town, to our town.
A                 D                     A            E
Can't you see the sun's settin' down on our town, on our town,
    A     D A E   A
Goodnight.

A                                    D
Now I sit on the porch and watch the lightning-bugs fly.
      D                         E
But I can't see too good, I got tears in my eyes.
    A                      D
I'm leaving tomorrow but I don't wanna go.
  D                                E
I love you, my town, you'll always live in my soul.

    A                   D
But I can see the sun's settin' fast,
    A                           E
And just like they say, nothing good ever lasts.
      A                 D
Well, go on now I gotta kiss you goodbye,
    A
But hold on to your lover,
            E
'Cause your heart's bound to die.

A             D              A           E
Go on now and say goodbye to my town, to my town.
A                 D                     A           E
I can you see the sun's settin' down on my town, on my town,
    A     D A E  A
Goodnight.
    A     D A E     A
Goodnight.
