Em G C Em
Em G C Em

Em                                   G
Dusk it mimics crisis in seated summer's craze
         C                                            Em
when 9 to 5 the people work and shun smog's heavy haze
 Em                                                    G
Nature's varmints duck about in the walls, the pipes, the grates
       C                                                               Em
But truth be told in the shadows fold at the closing of the day 
   D                                                    Em
Dusk is when all creatures come to bask in golden shade 
         C                                                   G
and every species acts as starved and feeds as the light fades
     Am                              C
Piggish are the worms, piggish are the snakes
   D
Fast as jets the sparrows fall to feed all in one place 
   G                                  C                                      D            G
I sat there where the sparrows dropped that's where I was waiting
    G                    C                                                         Em       D
Calmly, as the sparrows dropped, just as the day was fading

  G                                             
There, among the birds athirst is where I'd calmly stay 
        Em                                                              C            G
And feel as though the outsides matched my insides disarray
  G 
I knew no beauty but the dusk until that crucial eve
          Em                                                C                G
When my beloved poised as I, stood staring back at me
D                                                          Em               
If this town was small enough, they'd call us crazy cursed
       C                                      G
But we in random city went ignored, which might be worse
     Am                                                     C
I wooed her there in nature's mess, my only and my first
          D
And like a sparrow she fell for me, my eyes in hers, immersed
                   G                             C                                     D          G
She said, "Meet me where the sparrows drop, that's where I'll be waiting,
G                              C                                              Em           D 
Tomorrow, as the sparrows drop, just as the day is fading."

G
In my youth I'd made a deal, some lessons for my time 
       Em                                     C                             G
To train my trigger finger and plain faced march in line
G 
Just as I had found my peace my country found its war
Em                                         C                                G
I was sent then overseas to fight, who knows what for
       D                                                Em
And in the airport, in the crowd my love she wept for me
        C                                                 G
She held her hand on my back small, as calm as she could be 
               Am                                                      C
She said: "I love you for your eyes, you know, because they see like mine 
          D
With every bomb, just see a sparrow, falling down in time." 
                   G                             C                                     D          G
She said, "Meet me where the sparrows drop, that's where I'll be waiting,
G                              C                                              Em           D 
Tomorrow, as the sparrows drop, just as the day is fading."

Em Em/G (Rapidly switch back and forth between the two)
Em G C Em
Em G C Em

         Em                                    G
I can tell you of the fury or the wild eyed hateful man
         C                                        Em
I can tell you that I sit here now because I cannot stand
       Em                                                   G
Now I know nothing but the night, the sluggishness of time 
              C                                          Em
In the trenches with the rest, who've lost their limbs and minds 
      D                                                 Em
And I can't see the detail now but memory I know
         C                                                 G
With every sound explosion feel the warmth around me glow
      Am                                    C
I clutch my rifle tightly, rapid fire skyward bound 
   D
Hope to hit a sparrow feel it fall onto the ground
                   G                             C                                     D          G
She said, "Meet me where the sparrows drop, that's where I'll be waiting,
G                      C                                        Em           D 
Every day till your return, just as the day is fading."
   G                              C                            D         G
I sit and watch the sparrows drop, calmly as I'm waiting
  G                C                                         Em           D
Everyday for my return just as the day is fading.

Em Em/G
