Swing feel:



     F                         Am          F         C
On a day just like this on the ocean, four years ago now.
    F                        Am                        F                            C
The wind was too strong, the waves were too big, three young men were thrown of the bow
    Gm                           F                       G7
And I was at home when they were fighting towards mother earth
    Am                    Em                       Fsus4  F
And two of them died only twenty years after their birth
In October, oh


        F                          Am         F          C
And the last of the three was left hopelessly crying for help
F                              Am                         F                          C
The wind was screaming but the silence was stronger as he stood with his feet in the kelp
    Gm                           F                           G7
The sun was still up, but it was night time when I heard who died
  Am                    Em                    Fsus4   F
I only knew Eric 'cause one time he gave me a ride
In October, oh


       F                           Am                F            C   
Now, I didn't know him well, but I liked him, he was one of those guys
     F                    Am                                  F                      C  
That everyone knew either liked him or not, 'cause there were no sign of lies in his eyes
Gm                            F                     G7
I was seventeen years old the last time he spoke to me
Am                         Em                    Fsus4   F
Now I'm twenty one and I'm older than he'll ever be
In October, oh


   F                     Am              F        C   
My father is his mothers cousin, so that makes us kin
    F                   Am                           F                   C  
I remember those family dinners, and the old peoples funerals again and again
Gm                               F                         G7
So strange looking 'round in the crowd when he wouldn't be found
Am                              Em                            Fsus4   F
Oh, the look on the face of his brother when they lowered him down
In October, oh


  F                        Am         F         C 
October is the best, turns roads into beautiful trails
    F                        Am                      F                         C   
The rime on the windows, the leafs on your coat, the frost on the cars and the rails
Gm                             F                        G7
Still, out on the ocean, those memories are bringing me down
Am                                Em                            Fsus4   F
But I've heard there's a symphony playing you to sleep when you drown
October, again and again
