Capo II

    Am      D             G      D
The evil it spread like a fever ahead
       Am             D             Am
It was night when you died, my firefly
Am                D       G                  D
What could I have said to raise you from the dead?
         Am       D                    Am
Oh could I be the sky on the Fourth of July?

         D         G
Well you do enough talk
D         G     D          Am
My little hawk, why do you cry?
        D            G
Tell me what did you learn from the
D         G             D         Am
Tillamook burn?  Or the Fourth of July?
      D         Am
We're all gonna die.

Am             D            G            D
Sitting at the bed with the halo at your head
       Am        D                 Am
Was it all a disguise, like Junior High
      Am             D        G              D
Where everything was fiction, future, and prediction
Am           D                Am
Now where am I?  My fading supply

        D          G     D         G
Did you get enough love, my little dove
D          Am
Why do you cry?
        D       G            D           G
And I'm sorry I left, but it was for the best
          D          Am
Though it never felt right
   D           Am
My little Versailles

    Am       D                G       D
The hospital asked should the body be cast
      Am         D                   Am
Before I say goodbye, my star in the sky
Am           D          G              D
Such a funny thought to wrap you up in cloth
       Am          D                 Am
Do you find it all right, my dragonfly?

         D           G     D         G
Shall we look at the moon, my little loon
D           Am
Why do you cry?
         D            G     D           G
Make the most of your life, while it is rife
D           Am
While it is light

         D         G
Well you do enough talk
D         G     D          Am
My little hawk, why do you cry?
        D            G              D         G
Tell me what did you learn from the Tillamook burn?
       D          Am
Or the Fourth of July?
      D         Am
We're all gonna die
