“The Last Hawk”
By Shovels and Rope
‘Little Seeds’

Capo on 2nd

[INTRO]

C

[VERSE]

  C                           G
I hadn't seen the place since '68
        F                   C           G
When we all got high and we rolled that tape
        C                      G
We were holed up waiting for a call from the man
        F                         C            G
Who had crashed his bike and gave birth to the band

F                        G
I frowned and bend in my special way
        C                            Am
Told my daddy I was gonna teach them boys to play
       F
'Cause sometimes you know what you know
       G
You're never gonna learn if you can't let go

[CHORUS]

        C                      G
I'm the last hawk, flying over Woodstock
           Am        C         G     C
This is my last stop 'fore I'm on my way

[VERSE]

     C                           G
They say if you've never been to Saugerties
            F                            C           G
Then you've never heard the wind whisper through the trees
C                                   G
Never known work till you've worked holes in your knees
      F                             C          G
And I betcha you've never heard any songs like these

     C                            G
They dragged our name through the mud out there
   F                        C           G
It didn't feel right and it didn't feel fair
            C                         G
'Cause that loud rock n' roll was too much to bear
        F                          C       G
For the soft-hearted poets down in Harvard Square

F              G
Lee got tired, spit and swear
     C                            Am
Went floating down the river to a rig somewhere
       F
'Cause sometimes you know what you know 
       G
You're never gonna learn if you can't let go

[CHORUS]

        C                      G
I'm the last hawk, flying over Woodstock
              Am        C        G
I can see the tree tops, praying for the rain
           C                       G
This is my last stop, gonna take a long walk
                 Am        C            G         C
Before I take my boots off, I'll see ya round the way

[VERSE]

C               G
This may be the last I'll see
       F                        C     G
Of the rotten old house down in Saugerties
C                G
I was here and I made a mighty stand
    F                 C            G
But I may never stand right there again

C                    G
Play a sweet song on these old keys
    F                C        G
And hope y'all might remember me
       C                G
'Cause all that time is here and gone
F                       C        G
Won't be no one left to carry it on

        F             G
From my piano bench I saw it all
         C                      Am
From the great ascension to the mighty fall
          F                   G
How could anyone know what we sang that day
      C                Am
Would tear your heart apart this way

       F                  G
All my brothers they have flown away
      C                             Am
But I still got something left that I wanna say
          F
It's that sometimes you know what you know
       G
You'll never be free if you can't let go

[CHORUS]

        C                      G
I'm the last hawk, flying over Woodstock
              Am        C        G
I can see the tree tops, praying for the rain
           C                       G
This is my last stop, gonna take a long walk
                 Am        C            G         C
Before I take my boots off, I'll see ya round the way
