witchita skyline
by: shawn colvin & john leventhal
CD: a few small repairs

note: play (Dm Dsus2 Dm Dsus2) at the   *  symbol

intro: F Bb (play several times)

F           Bb            F       Bb             *
down at the train  they go to independence every day
F            Bb        F              Bb            *
but everyone else now  seems a like a million miles away
                    F         Dm                    F    G
and i must have been high  to beleive  that i would ever leave
               Bb   F    C                    F      Bb  F Bb
now i'm just a flat fine line  like the witchita skyline
  F        Bb         F                Bb            *
i rode the airstream  across the great lonesome afternoon
      F           Bb       F         Bb                   *
and i wished hard enough,  drove fast enough to catch the moon
                   F        Dm
but i must've been dreaming again
              F                  G
cause there's nothing around the bend
                Bb   F    C               F      Bb  F Bb
except for that fine flat line  the witchita skyline

F  Bb (3x)   solo play chords (G#  G#-A#-G#)

F         Bb                F         Bb           *
as far as salina  i can get that fine station from larue
    F             Bb
i'm searching the dial
          F            Bb                 *
while i'm scanning the sky for a patch of blue
               F                  Dm  F              G
and i watch the black clouds rool in  chasing me back again
            Bb   F    C               F       Bb
back to the flat fine line   the witchita skyline
         F       Bb
the witchita skyline
         F       Bb    (slide to) C# C Bb Ab F____   (to end)
the witchita skyline

Lack of accuracy. I don't get how this sounds like the song? I reckon' it's from 1997 and tabbing was a bit off maybe, but if you look it up on YouTube the song is always played with a capo on the 3rd fret and the chords don't seem alike anything written here
