Intro Em F#m7 G 2x F#m7 Bm G Today's the 4th of July Another June has gone by F#m7 Bm C G And when they light up our town I just think Em F#m7 G What a waste of gunpowder and sky Em F#m G F#m7 Bm G I'm certain I am alone In harbouring thoughts of our home F#m7 Bm C G It's one of my faults that I can't quell my past Em F#m7 G I ought to have gotten it gone Em F#m7 G I ought to have gotten it A G D Em D/F# Bm Em A G Ooh baby I wonder if when you are older some day you'll wake up and say "My God I should have told her what would it take? But now here I am and the world's gotten colder G F#m7 G F#m7 G And she's got the river down which I sold her F#m7 Bm G So that's today's memory lane With all the pathos and pain F#m7 Bm C G Another chapter in a book where the chapters are endless Em F#m7 G And they're always the same A verse and a verse and refrain [chorus] G F#m7 G And she's got the river down which I sold her
