Sand in Your Shoes

Year: 1976 - Album: Year of the Cat

	       G              Em              C                  D 
You always were a city kid though you were country raised 
  G               Em              C                    D 
And back in some forgotten time we shared the cold north days. 
  G              Em                     C             D 
But the simple life was not your style and you just had to escape 
    G     C     Bm   Am     D   G    Gsus4  G   Gsus2 
So it's goodbye to my lady of the islands. 
  
 
         G                 Em 
On Remembrance Day the bands all played; 
         C                        D 
The bells pealed throught the park. 
G             Em                 C                  D 
And you lay there by the "Do Not" signs and shamed them with your spark. 
 G               Em                     C              D 
Now winter moans in old men's bones as the day falls into dark 
   G      C     Bm    Am     D     G  Gsus4  G  Gsus2 
And it's goodbye to my lady of the islands. 
 Bm              Em                  Am               D 
It was just like this behind the kisses you so soon swept away 
 Bm               Em                Am                D 
Oh, I always knew that someday you'd be bound to just get pulled away. 
  
 
  G               Em              C                 D 
The summer sun beats on and on; the shops swim in the heat. 
  G           Em                 C             D 
And you're standing by the traffic signs with taxis at your feet. 
   G             Em                C                  D 
Well, I know that in your city skin you're feeling more complete, 
     G      C     Bm  Am         D    Gsus4  G  Gsus2 
So it's goodbye to my lady of the islands.
