VERSE 1:

UpDmaj7on the spot that Am7time forgot
And F /Cmaps don’t G /Amean a Dmaj7thing
The Dmaj7tripod stood, the Am7camera shook
And F /Cwinter G /Aturned to Dmaj7spring

 
CHORUS 1:

The Bm7money came from Em7up the coast
And G /Ahunters A7followed Dmaj7on
The Bdimsun was down, the F#maj7air was close
And Gmaj7++E7++A7sus4++A7

 
VERSE 2:

This Dmaj7place, it could be Am7Cookie Bay
WithF /Cout the G /Asummer+ Dmaj7rain
Now B7nothing seems that Am7far away
And F /Cpeople+ G /Adress the Dmaj7same

 
CHORUS 2:

The Bm7shepherd herded Em7down the hill
And G /Acrossed the A7stretching Dmaj7sound
The Bdimwaves cut into F#maj7solid rock
ExGmaj7changing E7rock for A7sus4sand+A7
