Summerday Sands guitar chords

Summerday Sands 

capo 2 fret 

intro D(SUS469)* arpeggio D D(sus4) 

 D         D(sus4) D5      Am/D*           G 
I once met a girl with the life in her hands 
            D      G                  D 
D(sus4) 
and we lay together on the summerday sands. 
 D         D(sus4) D5         Am/D*            G 
I gave her my raincoat and told her, ``Lady, be 
good!'' 
                     D   G 
D         D(sus4) 
And we made truth together, where no one else 
would. 

D                   D(sus4)D5 
Am/D*                 G 
I smiled through her fingers and ran the dust 
through her hands --- 
                  D     G                   D 
the hour-glass of reason on the summerday sands. 

Em                       Cmaj7 
We sat as the sea caught fire. 
C(add b9)C                 A7 
Waited as the flames grew higher 
        D D/C D/B D/A 
in her eyes. 
Em                   Cmaj7 
We watched the eagle born --- 
C(add b9)C             A7 
wings clipped, tail feathers shorn 
 D              D/C  D/B  D/Bb  Bb#4 
but we saw him rise --- 
Bb#4                   D D(sus4) 
over summerday sands. 

(Rest the same) 

Came the ten o'clock curfew. 
She said, ``I must start my car. 
I'm staying with someone I met last night in a 
bar.'' 
I called from my wave top --- 
``At least tell me your name!'' 
She smiled from her wheelspin 
and said, ``It's all the same.'' 
I thought for a minute, jumped back on dry land --- 
left one set of footprints on the summerday sands. 

I once met a girl with the life in her hands 
and we lied together on the summerday sands.
