Here is an oldie and a goodie.  Enjoy.

Shooting Star
Harry Chapin    (klr)

[Em] He was crazy, of course
>From the [C] first she must have known it
But [D] still she went on [Bm] with him
And she [G] never once had [Em] shown it
And she took him off the street
And she [C] dried his tears of grieving
She [D] listened to his [Bm] visions
She be [G] lieved in his be [Em] lieving

[C] He was the sun burning bright and brittle
And [D] she was the moon shining back his light a little
[C] He was a shooting star
[Bm] She was softer and more slowly
He [A] could not make things possible
But [C] she could make them holy, Holy [Em]

[Em] He was dancing to some music
No one [C] else had ever heard
He'd [D] speak in unknown [Bm] languages
And she would [G] translate every [Em] word
And when the world was laughing
At his [C] castles in the sky
She'd [D] hold him in her [Bm] body
Until he [G] once again could [Em] fly

[C] He was the sun burning bright and brittle
And [D] she was the moon shining back his light a little
[C] He was a shooting star
[Bm] She was softer and more slowly
He [A] could not make things possible
But [C] she could make them holy, Holy [Em]

She [G] gave him a daughter and she [D] gave him a son
She was a [Bm] mother and a wife
And a [Em] lover when the day was done
He was to [G] far gone for giving love
What he [D] offered in its stead
Was the [Bm] knowledge she was the only thing
That [Em] was not in his [G] head  [D] - [Em]

[Em] He took off east one morning
Towards the [C] rising sun's red glow
She [D] knew he was going [Bm] nowhere
But of [G] course she let him [Em] go
And as she stood and watched him dwindle
Much too [C] empty to be sad
He [D] reappeared be [Bm] side her
Saying "You're [G] all I've ever [Em] had"

[C] He was the sun burning bright and brittle
And [D] she was the moon shining back his light a little
[C] He was a shooting star
[Bm] She was softer and more slowly
He [A] could not make things possible
But [C] she could make them holy, Holy [Em]

I hope you all enjoy that one.
