HALLEY CAME TO JACKSON (Mary-Chapin Carpenter)
----------------------------------------------

[Capo 2; each chord is half a measure.]

D  D  G  D    D  D  A  D    D  D  G  D    D  D  A  D
[intro]
A  A  D  D    G  D  A  D    A  A  Bm G    D  D  A  D
[intro]

D        D              G        D      D  D  G  D
Late one night when the wind was still
D                 D           A      D     D  D  A  D
Daddy brought the baby to the window sill
   D            D              G        D    D  D  G  D
To see a bit of heaven shoot across the sky
    D            D          A      D    D  D  A  D
The one and only time Daddy saw it fly

   A             A            D           D
It came from the east just as bright as a torch
    G               D      A        D
The neighbors had a party on their porch
A                A            Bm     G
Daddy rocked the baby, Mother said "amen"
     D              D        A        D
When Halley came to visit in nineteen ten

D  D  G  D    D  D  A  D    D  D  G  D    D  D  A  D
[instrumental]

Now back then Jackson was a real small town
And it's not every night a comet comes around
It was almost eighty years since its last time through
So I bet your mother would've said "amen" too

As its tail stretched out like a stardust streak
The papers wrote about it every day for a week
They wondered where it's going and where it's been
When Halley came to Jackson in 1910

A  A  D  D    G  D  A  D    A  A  Bm    G  G  G  G    D  D  A  D
[instrumental]

    D5 ...
Now Daddy told the baby sleeping in his arms
To dream a little dream of a comet's charms
And he made a little wish as she slept so sound
In nineteen eighty-six that wish came 'round     ... D  D  A  D

   A             A             D           D
It came from the east, just as bright as a torch
    G             D            A       D
She saw it in the sky from her daddy's porch
   A            A      Bm       G [pause]
As heavenly sent as it was back then
     D              Bm         A        D
When Halley came to Jackson in nineteen ten

A  A  D  D    G  D  A  D    A  A  Bm G    D  Bm A  D
[instrumental]
D        D              G        D
Late one night when the wind was still
D  D  G  D    D  D  A  D.
[instrumental]
