Intro  Em F#m G 2x

F#m        Bm      G
Today's the 4th of July

Another June has gone by
F#m                Bm      C           G 
And when they light up our town I just think
       Em          F#m        G
What a waste of gunpowder and sky


 Em F#m G

F#m        Bm      G
I'm certain I am alone

In harbouring thoughts of our home
F#m                Bm        C              G 
It's one of my faults that I can't quell my past
   Em           F#m       G
I ought to have gotten it gone
   Em           F#m     G
I ought to have gotten it


A     G        D          Bm                Em    A       G
Ooh baby I wonder if when you are older some   day

you'll wake up and say "My God I should have told her what would it take?

But now here I am and the world's gotten colder
       G                 F#m             G    F#m G
And she's got the river down which I sold her 


F#m        Bm      G
So that's today's memory lane

With all the pathos and pain
F#m                Bm            C              G 
Another chapter in a book where the chapters are endless
Em               F#m           G
And they're always the same

A verse and a verse and refrain

[chorus]


     G                  F#m             G     
And she's got the river down which I sold her
