                               "Sweet Evening Breeze"
                                 by John Mellencamp


    This a lesser-known tune off the "Human Wheels" album, but a fun one to
play acoustic.  It oscillates between meditative picking and exciting
strumming.  Notice my naming conventions with D/Dsus2 and D/Dsus4 below.
    Enjoy.

     *if you can get the above, you can surely make up a similar picking
      pattern for the C and Em progressions which are next.

VERSE 1:

Asus2              G
I was loud and a little sad.
D/Dsus2                D/Dsus4
She was visiting from Atlanta, Georgia.
Asus2                      G
She had come to spend the summer with her dad.
D/Dsus2           D/Dsus4
I thought she was very pretty.
C                      Em
We would kiss and hold hands
C                  Em
Every night by the football field.
C             Em
Her body was tan
           D/Dsus2
>From the afternoons by the public swimming pool.


CHORUS: (strum these chords)

     Asus2          G
     Sweet evening breeze
                      Asus2           G
     Blows around my thoughts and memories.
                    Asus2
     As I lie here today
                   G
     And drink my tea,
     D                Dsus4  D
     I can still see
                    Asus2 / G / Asus2 / G / Asus2 / G / Asus2 / G
     Sweet evening breeze.


VERSE 2:

Asus2           G
I saw her in a coffee shop
D/Dsus2                D/Dsus4
In a big hotel down in Austin, Texas.
Asus2           G
She had cut her long hair off
D/Dsus2
And replaced it with
      G    D  G     D
Blue eyes of sad - ness.
C                        Em
Still acted like we were kids
C                        *Fill*
And she told me that she had to marry
C                     Em
And she asked me if I did
D/Dsus2
Still remember.

CHORUS

VERSE 3:

Asus2              G
How redundant the future can be.
      D/Dsus2         D/Dsus4
These days of old are very, very
Asus2          G
Ridiculous for me to see
       D/Dsus2         G    D    G       D
When I think about the real gone stor - ies
C                              Em
And how time holds the winning hand.
C                 *Fill*
I can tell by the lines on our faces
C                        Em
And the young can't understand
          D/Dsus2
That they look at me
When they look at themselves.
