Soul Asylum
"The Sun Maid" from Grave Dancers Union album

One of the most beautiful songs by Soul Asylum. Very intelligent text of the song.
very simple piece of music but if you look deeper into the lyrics you will see sad story
disregarding and loneliness.
I tabbed this songs listening to the acoustic concert of Dave Pirner and Dan Murphy on
APRIL 1993 in Minneapolis taken from LittleTooClean website - one of the biggest fan of
band. Many thanks to him for putting this concert on the internet !! Enjoy this song.

Though they say she's not too bright
She takes care of all the light
Without you it's cold and stark
We would all be in the dark

Chorus:
Without the sun maid
She never gets paid
Searching for the shade
Oh the sun maid

C  F  G  C
Am D  G

You are so taken for granted
With each and every seed that's planted
And the earth is so demanding
All the young girls are out tanning

Chorus:
With the sun maid
She's such an old maid
She never gets laid
Oh the sun maid

C            F         G             C
Now you're   tired,    your day is   over
