Last Fare Of The Day chords – Richard Shindell

 Capo 2

For the strum pattern, I strum down once on the chord and then let it ring until 
changing to the next chord where I'll do an DDU and before the down of the next chord.


Intro: [ G ][ D ][ Em ][ C ][ G ][ D ][ C ][ C ]

             G D      
 I saw them standing in the rain
  Em C    
 Out on Seventh Avenue
              G D C C         
 He held her close, like she might fall if he let go
                G D 
 He helped her in, he shut the door
          Em C  
 And our eyes met in the mirror
           G D G C G 
 "To Englewood, just take it slow" is all he said

               C Em 
 And into the stream we pulled away
            D C 
 I know it well, this old ballet
              C Em 
 Finding the flow, minding the sway
           G C C 
 Catching green lights all the way

           G D 
 Up Amsterdam, the meter dark
  Em C 
 I turned off the radio
                 G D C C 
 She whispered "Thanks, I could not bear another word."
             G D 
 Out on the bridge, the traffic slowed
  Em C 
 The brake lights and the wash
               G D G C G 
 Of all those truckers heading south on ninety-five

                 C Em 
 And across the span we pulled away
            D C    
 I know it well, this old ballet
              C Em 
 Finding the flow, minding the sway
           G C C 
 Catching green lights all the way
                     D 
 And I brought them home
                 Em C 
 I brought them home
                 G D G D C C 
 I brought them home in that cruel, cruel rain

[Bridge]

               G D 
 And now it's spring, and where's the rain
  Em C 
 All the wells are running dry
          G D C C 
 And the reservoirs have reached an all-time low
              G D 
 And if this red light ever turns
  Em C 
 If I can make it through the park
              G D G C G 
 I'll head uptown for the last fare of the day

              C Em 
 And turn it does, I pull away
            D C 
 I know it well, this old ballet
              C Em 
 Finding the flow, minding the sway
           G C C  
 Catching green lights all the way

                 G D 
 And there they are, outside St. Luke's
  Em C 
 With their flowers and balloons
       G D C C 
 All amazement at the baby in her arms
           G D 
 As Amsterdam makes us a place
  Em C 
 I ask about her name
             G D G C G 
 And we all laugh when he says Hope and she says Grace

Richard Berman – On The Mexican Coast chords V2

 This song has an interesting chord progression. I've divided them up into easy 
chunks. The first verse goes 1121, the second goes 11121 and the chorus is 3 and 
then 3 again. Yes, there is a key change at the chorus, but it's only the chorus.  
This is all taken from listening and watching Berman play live and in videos on YouTube.

Capo on 2.

Lyrics:


Verse 1:
(Chords 1)
In a small fishing village on the Mexican coast, 
Ten yellowfin tuna on the floor of his boat.
The fisherman gathers them up in a sack,
A smile on his face, noonday sun on his back.

(Chords 1)
"That's a good-looking catch," comes a voice from the dock,
An American tourist with a gold Rolex watch.
"Did it take a long time to bring in that haul?"
The fisherman looked up, "No, not long at all."

(Chords 2)
"And if you fish longer," the American mused
"Seems you could catch more with ease."
The fisherman climbed out of the boat with his sack,
"I have enough for my needs."

(Chords 1)
"And what do you do with the rest of your time?"
The Americans watch gleamed in the light.
The fisherman turned his gaze to the sea,
Looked back as he lowered the sack to his feet.


Chorus:

(Chords 3)
In the mornings I'm in my boat fishing, 
Then its home to Maria my wife. 
We have lunch then we take our siesta,
The I play with the kids for a while.

(Chords 3)
In the evenings I stroll into the village,
Play guitar, sing songs, harmonize.
Sip wine with my dear amigos,
It's a full and busy life.


Verse 2:

(Chords 1)
The American sighed, "I can give you some help"
"I've succeeded in business, I know how to make wealth."
"If you were to fish longer, set the money aside,
You could save until there is a second boat you can buy."

(Chords 1)
"Keep saving and buying 'til you own your own fleet,
Then you buy up your own canning plant."
"Mexico City, LA, then New York,
You move as your empire expands."

(Chords 1)
"How long would this take?" the Fisherman asked.
"Oh, fifteen, twenty years will have passed."
"What then?" Asked the Fisherman, "What happens next?"
"Ahhh, then comes the part that I love the best."

(Chords 2)
"When the time is right, you'll announce to the world
An initial sell of your stock."
"And when the shares are sold, you'll be a rich man,
Millions is what youll have got."

(Chords 1)
"Millions?" the fisherman picked up his sack,
"And then, what then, what comes after that?"
The American scanned the sea and the boats,
"You retire to a village on the Mexican coast."


Chorus:

(Chords 3)
Where you'll start off you
