  Song: This Day

Tabbed by: Hunter MacDermut

     F          Gm
This day is no special day
     F               Gm
This day will see no placards given
     F            Cm
This day will see no dismembered limbs
          Dm     Cm      Dm      Cm
Yet there buzzes about a distant chain saw
      Bb                 C7             F
Whose sound comes in and out on a timid wind

This day is a slow gesture
This day is just clearly not ready
It hopes for a year of vibrant clarity
But waits for the cues from the coming weeks
And fumbles and stares blankly

(Dm to Cm only once on next two verses)

It's not clear how this day will end
But I have put my money (C7) down
On having a clear view from this house to the heavens
And back again
It's not clear how this day will end


This day heaves like a cold engine
With a tank of old gasoline
Live your mornings on ether
And tremble with anticipation as the sun goes down
