September When It Comes
Rosanne Cash September When It Comes To play the song in the original key, tune your guitar 1/2 step down. Intro: Em Em C G There's a cross above the baby's bed, D Em A Saviour in her dreams. C G Em But she was not delivered then, D Em And the baby became me. Em C G There's a light inside the darkened room, D Em A footstep on the stairs. C G Em A door that I forever close, D Em To leave those memories there. C Am So when the shadows link them, C Am Into an evening sun. Em C G Well first there's summer, then I'll let you in. D Em September when it comes. Em C G I plan to crawl outside these walls, D Em Close my eyes and see. C G Em And fall into the heart and arms, D Em Of those who wait for me. Em C G I cannot move a mountain now; D Em I can no longer run. C G Em I cannot be who I was then: D Em In a way, I never was. C Am I watch the clouds go sailing; C Am I watch the clock and sun. Em C G Oh, I watch myself, depending on, D Em September when it comes. C Am So when the shadows link them, C Am And burn away the clouds. Em C They will fly me, like an angel, G D Em To a place where I can rest. C G Em When this begins, I'll let you know, D Em September when it comes.
