Make It Last
Here's a nice tune by Eric Andersen off his "Stages: The Lost Tracks" album. Solo guitar accompaniment won't quite capture all the beauty of this one, without the piano, mandolin, and nice harmonies by Shawn Colvin on the actual recording. MAKE IT LAST (Eric Andersen) Guitar: Capo III Intro: G C G C F G C verse 1: C G C It's 2 am and pitch black F C And I've got so far to go F C My hands are hangin' from the wheel G F G But my mind it only roams C G C The sun went down behind the hills F D7 And the miles are draggin' past C D7 This highway rolls forever F G C But I'm comin' home at last Refrain: C G Make it last F I want to feel the mornin' come C G Make it last F G I want to see the mornin' sun C I want to fly F Like an angel in the wind C G Make it last F G C 'til I'm in your arms again verse 2: (same chords as verse 1) By the highway is a diamond Glowin' in the night All along the dark horizon First sign and crack of light Up the road I see a hotel Better pull in off the line Tomorrow seems forever But I'll make it home on time Repeat refrain. Am C Ridin' 'neath the shotgun moon F Dm7 The clouds watch from above C G The things we do to keep this life C F The things we do for love Am C The chain they call the highway F Dm7 Can nail you like a stone C G What I wouldn't do to have one hour F G C To be with you alone Repeat refrain. Up ahead I see a woman I can see her silhouette It's 4 am, the lights are out I can see the empty bed She's starin' out the window She puts out a cigarette The night rolls on forever Like the prairies in the West Repeat refrain.
