Res Lyr Req: Mornin' Blues (I woke up early with (11) Lyr Add: KILLING THE BLUES (Roly Salley) 23 Aug 99


Leaves were falling, just like embers, colors red and gold
They set us on fire burning just like moonbeams in our eyes

Somebody said they saw me
Swinging the world by the tail
Bouncing over a white cloud
Killing the blues
Now I am guilty of something
I hope you never do
Because there is nothing any sadder
Than losing yourself in love.

And then you've asked me just to leave you
To set out on my own and get what I needed
You want me to find what I've already had.

Chorus: X2

The chord progression is: E Esus4 E Esus4 E E7 Asus2, E E sus4 B7 E A

Probably easier to read than above. Just scroll down to Shawn Colvin #1 Killing The Blues.

Hope this helps. Res
