FIRST VERSE:	

/ C / G / F / % / Am / % / F / G /	
Red is my is my favorite color, red like your mother's eyes after awhile of
/ C / G / Am / % / % / % /		
Crying about how crying about how you don't love her. She says,
/ F / % / C / % / G / % /		
I know I don't deserve supervised sight of her, but each day becomes a blur 
/ G / F / % / G / % / Am /%/ % / F G /	
Without my daughter

SECOND VERSE:	

/ C / G / F / % / Am / % / F / G /	
Fall is my favorite season, like falling to reasoning why you crashed from on high. she says
/ C / G / Am / % / % / % /		
Why is my life so uneven,
/ F / % / C / % / G / % /		
And what have I done right but given you your life if after i led you on
/ G / F / % / G / % / Am / % / % / % /	
Into that barroom
/ F / % / G / % / C / % / % / % /
	...into that barroom

THIRD VERSE:	

/ C / G / F / % / Am / % / F / G /	
Yes is my favorite answer. I took a dancer home, she felt so alone.
/ C / G / F / % / Am / % / F / G /	
We stayed up all night in the kitchen doing my dishes, on and on until the dawn. She said
/ C / G / Am / % / % / % /		
I know it's easy to have me, 
/ F / % / G / % / C / G / Am / % /	
But I have seen some things that I can't even tell to my family pictures. and
/ F / % / G / % /			
I'm full of fictions and fucking addictions and I miss my mother.

FOURTH VERSE:	

/ C / G / F / % / Am / % / F / G /	
She'll never know I could never forget her. If I could write her a letter, I'd try with every line to say
/ C / G / Am / % / % / % /		
She still remembers your touch.
/ Am / % / G / % /			
And I know it's not much
/ C / G / F / % /			
I know it's not much
/ Am / % / G / % /			
And I know it's not much
/ C / % / % / % /			
but you still haven't lost her.

Repeat FLUTE SOLO 1, but end on the 5th measure of the last line (/G/)
