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

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

Em      D/F#    G       Am
G/B     D       Em

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

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

Em      D/F#    G       Am
G/B     D       Em


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

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

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

Em      D/F#    G       Am
G/B     D       Em
