Of missing persons – Jackson Browne  (Album: Hold Out)

 
Intro:
|Am      |F       |C/E  F    |C/G      |
|E       |Am      |F/G       |C        |


     Am           F          C/E         F        C/G
Your father was a rounder he played that rock and roll
  E            Am           F/G          C
A leaper and a bounder down to his gypsy soul
    Am            F         C/E    F       C/G
The music was his angel and sorrow was his star
    E               Am           F/G              C
And those of us who follow might hope to reach as far


        Dm      Em      F       C/G        E/G#  Am
They're walking slow in Houston speechless in  D.C.
        Dm     Em      F                         C/G     G
There's no way I could tell you what he meant to me


     Am            F            C/E     F       C/G
Your mother's a survivor she'll do what must be done
    E               Am           F/G              C
Her children will revive her and help her see the sun
    Am               F              C/E      F          C/G
She almost knew that unison but the singing stopped too soon
E                  Am             F/G           C
Now she shares the silence with a man up in the moon


   Dm       Em      F       C/G             E/G# Am
To speak of missing persons tonight there's only one
    Dm     Em    F                        C/G     G
And we all carry with us what the man's begun


            F/G       C       F/C      C
And you can sing this song on July the Fourth
       F/C   C             F/C    C
In the sunny south and the frozen north
       F/C    C               F      E
It's a day of loss, it's your day of birth
               Am                    F/G
Does it take a death to learn what a life is worth?


     Am               F                 C/E     F        C/G
Your brothers are all older and they'll take it in their stride
    E                Am         F/G                C
The world's a little colder but manhood's on their side
    Am                F                  C/E     F         C/G
Now you're the little girl-child and you look so much like him
    E                  Am            F/G              C
And he's right there inside you each time you want to sing


Dm      Em      F         C/G           E/G# Am
Sing of missing persons tonight there's only one
    Dm         Em      F                           C/G     G
But he's where you can find him when it's said and done




            F/G       C       F/C      C
And we will sing this song on July the Fourth
         F/C   C             F/C    C
From the sunny south and the frozen north
          F/C    C       F      E
This will always be your day of birth
               Am                    F/G
May you always see what your life is worth

            F/G       C       F/C      C
And you can sing this song on July the Fourth
       F/C   C             F/C    C
In the sunny south and the frozen north
       F/C    C               F/C    C
It's a day of loss, it's your day of birth
