 Where Are You Darlin' Tonight?

 A E7 
Where are you darlin' tonight 
                         A 
Where are you darlin' tonight 
                 A7 D   
Do you think of me when you turn out the light 
       E A 
Where are you darlin' tonight 

I have you burned into my memory 
A memory that sets me on fire. 
Night after night I turn out the light 
lie in the darkness consumed with desire 

Cryin’ Where are you darlin'tonight 
Oh where are you darlin'tonight 
Do you think of me when you turn out the lights 
Where are you darlin'tonight 

 A Bm 
The hours grow longer as winter unwinds 
     E A 
Her long threads of summer to fall 
                    Bm              
Suddenly every old memory finds me  
 B7 E E7 
Lyin’ in bed cryin’ out to the walls 

Oh where are you darlin'tonight 
Oh where are you darlin'tonight 
Do you think of me when you turn out the lights 
Where are you darlin'tonight 

Oh where are you darlin'tonight 
Where are you little darlin'tonight 
Do you think of me when you turn out the lights 
Where are you darlin'tonight

It Makes Me So Sad chords – Mickey Newbury

It makes me so sad to see you so mad about him, baby
 D7 G 
I once would have done anything for you, baby
                      G7 C Cm 
Then he walked in to your life one day, he took your heart and he threw it away
             D7 G 
It makes me so mad to see you so sad, baby

 G G7 C      / B  / Bb 
I tried to tell you what he was but you would not listen
        A  
Oh the lies in his eyes, in his eyes, how they could glisten,  you would not listen

He walked in to your life one day...


I tried to tell you…

Someone just dropped a nickel in my mouth
So I'll be dead and asleep in back of Richards Northside Lounge
If you ever get to Houston, look me down

Time Was chords – Mickey Newbury

 Time Was

 Dm Gm6 
Time was I had a dream 
     A Dm 
The sky was so blue, the meadow so green 
   Gm6 Dm  
A time in the fire of my youth 
   Bb A  
A time when a dreamer had time for a dream to come true 

         D     / F# G A D    / F# G A  
Oh, but time is a handful of sand to an old man 
       D     / F# G A Bm       
While time is a warm place to stand for a young man 
    E7 G C A       
To stand any man with a young girl watching the tide roll in 

Time was I had a dream 
Certain and sure I could do anything 
A time so long ago Once I knew 
A place in my heart where a dream would come true 

Oh time is a rock and roll band to a young man 
While time is a warm loving hand to an old man 
A strong loving shoulder to lean on and watch the children at play 

 D     / F# G A D    / F# G A 
Time was    I had a dream 
 D     / F# G A D    / F# G A 
Time was    I had a dream 
 Bm G 
My dream was to stand here and sing 
 D Em G A 
Stand here and sing 

 Dm Gm6 
  I have had mountains and mountains
               A Dm  
And mountains in the palm of my hand

Hows The Weather chords – Mickey Newbury

 How's the Weather

 D G A7 D     
I once had some friends that I would see from time to time 
 G A7 
They lived on a farm in Tennessee 
     D G A7 D     
But all we ever talked about were songs and getting high 
 G A7 
Funny how the years have changed me 


     G A D    
Oh, how’s the weather out in California 
 G A D  
I might be in L.A. for awhile 
 G A D    
When I settle in one night I'll phone ya' 
       Bm A7   
Maybe we could get together 

Well I've had a good time but I guess it's time to leave 
I thought I could make it with you, girl 
But all we ever talked about is how your being free 
Made you such a woman of the world 

Oh, how’s the weather down in Oklahoma 
I might be in Tulsa for awhile 
When I settle in one night I'll phone ya' 
Maybe we could get together 

Well congratulations say you're movin' out of town 
You say you have a fourteen month old son 
Well you know I always said one day I'd like to settle down 
Seems like I was always on the run 

And how’s the weather up in Colorado 
I might be in Denver for a while 
When I settle in one night I'll phone you 
May be we could get together 

 Bm A 
Together 
 Bm A   
Maybe we could get together

On those lonely nights I could find no sleep 
Oh I would unlock my heart and soul on strings and ivory keys 

Now I come to you, dear hearts and gentle people 
A voice across an endless sea of time 
Where ever there are songs I will be singing

Dear hearts and gentle people goodnight 
      C G F C 
Dear hearts and gentle people goodnight

A Storm Is Coming chords – Mickey Newbury

 A Storm Is Coming

       Am F 
Oh if I could fly I would close my eyes 
 G Am 
Spread my wings and fly away from all this pain 
                            F   
Search the stars and find a place in space and time

I am seeking shelter from this chillin’ rain 

                  Am F 
Honey, there’s a storm comin’, sure and certain 
       G Am 
Gonna turn this dusty highway into forty miles of mud

Honey theres a storm comin’, sure and certain 
       G Am F 
I can feel it in my belly, I can feel it in my gut 
          Am F     
Theres a storm comin’
 G C E 
That river is no stranger, its anger knows no bounds 
 E7 Am G  
Honey theres a big storm comin
 F G 
Gather up the children, head for higher ground 
 Am 
A storm is comin’

See that silver lining, that’s where the sun is shining 
As sure as there is a heaven there will be a brighter day 
May not be tomorrow, oh, but all this sorrow in a solitary moment 
This too will pass away but today 

Theres a storm comin’ 
Gonna turn this Texas highway into forty miles of mud 
Honey there’s a storm comin’ 
I feel it in my belly, I feel it in my guts 
Theres a big storm comin

The Silver Moon Café chords – Mickey Newbury

 The Silver Moon Café

           C F C Am F G   
There's a blue moon in Kentucky, there's a two lane out of town, 
           F C F C G C     
Where the sign reads leaving Guthrie, population one more down 

               C F C Am F G   
And there's a cafe out on the highway, truckers pouring coffee down
           F C F C G C     
There's a jukebox in the corner playing crying country sounds

           F C Am Dm7 G 
There's a woman waiting tables, she is as busy as she can be
             F C F C G C     
That is the only way she is able to hold on to her sanity

I hear a freight train off in the distance going where I do not know
I just know it is going somewhere, that is where I want to go
Yes, there's a blue moon in Kentucky,  I (?) out of town
Just one stop to pick up my lady, population three more down
Just one stop to pick up my lady, population three more down

A Long Road Home chords – Mickey Newbury

 A Long Road Home

 A C#m D A       
How I long to feel the salty wind 
 F#m C#m D E   
Off Galveston Bay in my face once again 
   F#m C#m D A   
A warm southern wind on my weather worn skin 
 F#m C#m Bm E   
Perhaps I would not feel so old 


Now I long to hold the golden sand 
In the hollow of my hand 
Stand for a while there and fill in the hole 
Left in the heart of a wounded old soul 

 A C#m D A       
Here’s to tomorrow, here,s to today 
 F#m C#m D E          
Here’s to whatever I never did say 
 F#m C# D Bm                   
Here’s to old friends who have gone seperate ways 
 A E A 
Here’s to the memories 

How I long to be in those East Texas woods 
I would be in those old piney woods if I could 
On a hot summer mornin' down Centerville Way 
With the windows rolled down in my old Chevrolet 

Just cruisin' the backroads with nothin' but time 
Three nickels short of having a dime 
Miles from the highway with no hill left to climb 
Me and the whisperin' pine 

Here’s to tomorrow, here,s to today 
Here’s to whatever I never did say 
Here’s to your love you are happy I pray 

Out on this long stretch of Interstate 10 
That ole Del Rio station just keeps rollin' right in 
Many the night it was my only friend 
Me and the radio 

The Silver Moon Cafe was once out this way 
Like Route 66 boys it too had its day 
And this rusty old sign here is all that remains 
My how the times have changed 

They tell me ole Bud Rose hocked his guitar 
Bought a ticket to Nashville to become a big star 
Now he works on a bottle and he lives in a car 
Do you still have your dreams 

You remember the old town here yesterday 
The walk from the Ryman to the Linebow Cafe 
We would stop in at Tootsies and Tubbs on the way 
And slowly head East down to First and Broadway 

Hey look at that ole river but how it just keeps rollin' 
If it was a clock I could stop I would try 
I would let it roll down on about '65 
Perhaps I would not feel so old 

Hoist all the sails Bud to hell with the breeze 
Prayed for a wind that will bend every tree 
And a storm that will bring every man to his knee 
Heres to the howlin' sea 

Here’s to tomorrow heres to today 
Here’s to whatever I never could say 
Here’s to the piper the bastards been paid 

Down on this long stretch of Interstate 10 
El Paso to Phoenix to L.A. and then it is north to northwest 
I just follow the wind 
And by midnight tonight I will be home in Springfield again

The Sailor chords – Mickey Newbury

 The Sailor

 Em Am Em 
Well, my daddy was a sailor 
          D Em 
A sailor just like me 
              Am Em 
His wife was like my mother
     C D Em  
His love was the silver sea 

He was just another Sailor 
Off to find the world 
He was just another Sailor 
All his cloth unfurled 

         G D Em 
Singin' la den da n dao 
     G D Em 
The water is deep and it’s wide 
     G D Em 
The ship went down and the Captain drowns 
 C D Em C D Em 
Does no good to cry 

 Am Em 
Turnin' at the gang plank, he looked me in the eye 
          Am Em 
He said, learn to read the truth son that lies between these lines 

I never meet a stranger 
Til I've known them for a time 
And I'd rather have one penny 
Than all the nickel in the brine 
Say you double-headed Eagle 
Say you can teach me how to fly 
       G D Em 
Well, tell me then where would I go 
 C D Am    
But up into the sky
 C D Em 
But up into the sky 

Oh my Daddy was a Sailor 
The salt is in my blood 
And here I am in Nashville 
Bound deep in this mud 

I'm singin' la den da n dao 
Yes I'm too far out to sea 
So I'll sink with him or I'll swim with them 
Across this briney deep 

Susie’s in the kitchen doin' dishes 
Chris and all his toys have gone to bed 
Starin' out the window all I wish is 
I could hear the words I'm hearin' in my head

 The Last Question (In the Dead of the Night)

 E A G#m F#m 
How can I feel so alive with you darlin' 
        B E 
In the dead of the night 
                        A G#m F#m 
Why do I reach out for you every mornin'
        B E  
At the first sign of light 

 A E 
How could I not know you knew you were leavin' 
                     B7 
How could I not realize 
 E A G#m F#m 
How could I not know you were pretending 
               B E 
Where did the truth lie in your eyes 

Why do I feel so much love for you darlin' 
Feel so much love deep inside 
Oh why do I still feel alive with you darlin' 
Here in the dead of the night 

How could I not know you were only pretending 
How could I not realize 
How could I not know you knew you were leaving 
Where did the truth lie in your eyes 

Where did the truth lie in your eyes 
In the dead of the night

Song For Susan chords – Mickey Newbury

 Song For Susan 

Intro:  Bm+G Dadd9  Bm+G  Dadd9   A Am   / B  / C#  / D# E                   / D#         / C#       / B F#m B F#m B  
The light from the neon night silently lights up the sky 
                                                            E   / D#   / C#   / B      
Sails through the window to dance with the tears in her eyes 
 E             / D#            / C#       / B F#m B F#m B 
She tenderly turns and she runs her soft hands through my hair 
                                                 E   / D#   / C#   / B      
I've never doubted one minute just how much she cares 

The tight circle draws close but somehow I know it’s alright 
There is never a feeling of chains but of refuge from night 
I find myself seeking her hand as I drift off to sleep 
If I'd never known her God only knows where I'd be 

 Em D 
There was a time when the sun goin' down frightened me 
  F#m E 
Alone on a back road on my way back to Tennessee 
 Em D 
Just out of Monroe one night, God, I thought I was gone 
 F#m E 
I cried I've run out of time if I only had known 

Yesterdays newspaper forecast no rain for today..

Some Memories Are Better Left Alone chords – Mickey Newbury

 Some Memories Are Better Left Alone   

 A C#7 D Bm   
A solitary whippoorwill is singing in the night 
 E7 D E A E A 
I watch until he spreads his wings and he sails into the sky
                  C#7 D Bm                     
Somewhere in the distance I can hear his painful song 
         A E7 A  
He said some memories are better left alone 

Have you ever seen a freight train rolling down the track 
Eighty wheels on a thread of steel never looking back 
Even when I was young it still chilled me to the bone 
Yes some memories are better left alone 

        D            D+             Bm G#dim   
Do you ever have a longing for a pure and simple time 
      A F#m D E7 
When all we had between us was a dream and one thin dime 
             A C#7 D Bm   
And we were flat out on the highway with no place to be but gone 
      A E7 A 
Yes, some memories are better left alone 

Well I feel just like that whippoorwill singing in the night 
Trying once again to sleep I turn out the light 
Lying in the darkness I am waiting for the dawn 
Yes some memories are better left alone 

 A C#7 D Dm   
I am lying in the darkness waiting for the dawn 
            A E7 D Bm A 
Lord, some memories are better left alone

Some Dreams Never Die chords – Mickey Newbury

 Some Dreams Never Die 

 E D C#7 
Reach into your pocket, cast a dream into the sky
     F#m B Bsus4 B  
One dream will always fly, some dreams live forever 

 E D C#7 
And when everything is hopeless, spread your wings and try 
 F#m B E  
Some dreams live forever, some dreams never die 

      Bm D A G 
When you are in the darkness look to where the old lamplighter prays 
    F# 
If you will call his name, he will light his lamp 
     B7 C#7 D#m 
And you will find your way 

Reach into your pocket...

Some dreams live forever 
Some dreams live forever 
Some dreams never die

So Sad chords – Mickey Newbury

 So Sad

   E G#m 
I waited all that morning to hear her say I love you 
    A B  
So sure I was so certain, it was left unspoken 
 E G#m 
My heart, it was breaking, she turned back the curtain 
          A B 
She said nothing when she left me, she left me so heartbroken and 
 E G#m A B 
So sad    so sad 
So sad so sad 

Yes I waited all that mornin' to hear her say I love you 
In the mornin' light she glistened like a ruby in a stickpin 
Then she whispered something into the wet red-lettered window 
She said nothing she left me so heartbroken 
I was so sad so sad 
So sad so sad 

Shortys in the poolroom Billys in the chute 
Jack is at the track with some old lady with some loot 
Willie sits and wonders at the words he cannot rhyme 
I am not in prison I am only doin' time 
 
     A C#m 
And Blue Eyes died in Vegas when they blew away the Sands 
    F#m E   
And Elvis died in Memphis, boys, they nailed him in one hand 
 A G#m                      
Haley died in Corpus Christi, died without a dime 
 F#m B 
I am dead in Tennessee, they buried me alive 

And I am so sad 
so sad, so sad 
The best I had so sad 
Its what I have 
So sad so sad 

Yes I waited all that morning and so many mornings after 
So many lonely hours staring at the rafters 
Until I would close my eyes and feel you next to me 
But with the sun so sure to come will go my sweetest sleep 
And I am so sad so sad 
So sad, so sad 

Sailor Sailor chords – Mickey Newbury

 Sailor Sailor

 Em Am 
When the morning sun came up I crawled into her bed 
     C D Em  
The tears in her eyes were fallin’ 
                                Am 
I could feel no sorrow for the cruel things I had said 
       C D Em 
In my drunken state I did not care at all 

           G D   
She said, sailor, sailor tell me will you ever change your ways 
     Am Em 
Oh, do not take me through this stormy weather 
 G D   
I can feel your sorrow, you have seen your better days 
         Am C 
Ah, but I could not have loved you any better 
                      D Em   
No, I could not have loved you any better 

 Am Em 
Amber shades of red slashed through the night 
                              D Em 
And light the bed where I suppose I will lie alone a while until her cryin is done 
 Am Em  
I cannot explain why I cannot feel her pain 
 D Am 
I’ve grown unfeeling I suppose 
 C D Em 
I’ve grown unfeeling I suppose 

Oh sailor sailor tell me will you ever change your ways...

Over The Mountain chords – Mickey Newbury

 Over The Mountain

 D G D 
Over the mountain I will build us a cabin 
                          Bm 
Over the mountain I will build us a home 
       Em Bm       
We’ll sit by the fire won't the juniper smell good 
 Em Em7 
Over the mountain 

 D G D 
Take me my lady and give me some babies 
                          Bm 
Share all my burdens and sew on my clothes 
 Em Bm       
Life is a fountain we’ll drink it bone dry 
 Em Em7 
Over the mountain 

 G D 
April will promise you blossoms my lady 
 G Bm 
Creek waters risin' and the mares gonna foal 
 Em Bm       
Gather the creatures and bring them on down
 Em Em7 
On down the mountain 

I will plant us a garden here next to the forest 
Dig us a well there with water so pure 
Water so pure and as sweet as the sunshine 
Over the mountain 

I will build us a cabin here in the tall wood 
Bottom land cedar and Snake River stone 
We will sit by the fire won't the juniper smell good 
Over the mountain
