A Wedding In Connecticut

	  		C/G C Em Am C Fmaj7 (2x) 

C/G                  Em 
There was a pretty girl 
         Am             C  Fmaj7 
from some small suburb of Dallas 
       C/G              Em             Am C Fmaj7 
and she came up to New York with a dream 


    C/G                 Em  
In the confusion and the noise 
           Am           C   Fmaj7 
all of her beauty and her poise 
         C/G            Em                 C  
turned grey like snow beside the city street 


   C/G                Em 
she met a boy named Steven 
            Am         C    Fmaj7 
they made love in his apartment 
        C/G         Em                  Am C Fmaj7 
in a second story walk up out in Queens 


   C                         Em 
and the things she hoped to find 
           Am               Fmaj7 
beneath him on that August night 
          C                  Em 
was the farthest thing from her 
                      Am C Fmaj7 
as she dressed to leave 
  
        Fmaj7 G6 C       
so she hides her eyes 
       Fmaj7 G6 C 
says a slow goodbye 
              Fmaj7 G6   C      Em       Fmaj7 
swears by the morn-ing light, she'll be fine 


        C            Em 
at a wedding in Connecticut 
        Am           Fmaj7 
the mother of the bride 
        C            Em                     Am C Fmaj7 
day dreams about her husband who's just past 


            
        C                   Em 
as she stands to give her toast 
             Am            Fmaj7 
she says the only thing i know 
            C                    Em  
is when you find a love thats worth it 
            C C 
make it last 


    C                     Em 
so she chokes back the tears 
              Am                 Fmaj7 
and speaks of all her daughters years 
         C            Em                   Am C Fmaj7 
thirty christmas' of memories that she keeps 


         C                   Em 
and the speech was sad and sweet 
      Am              Fmaj7 
she kisses guests as they all leave 
      C                Em               C 
then heads off to her hotel room to weep    


       Fmaj7  G6   C 
so she bides  her time 
           Fmaj7  G6  C 
and says a slow  goodbye 
             Fmaj7  G6  C        Em       C   
swears by the morn-ing light, she'll be fine 


         Fmaj7  G6  C 
yeah she hides  her eyes 
           Fmaj7  G6      C 
though its hard  some nights 
                Fmaj7  G6     C    Em       Fmaj7 
she'll take her own   sweet time, she'll be fine 


C/G Em C Fmaj7 x2 


   C/G                 Em          
A welder who spent twenty years 
        Am           Fmaj7 
working in an auto plant 
     C/G              Em             Am C Fmaj7 
gets laid off on a thursday afternoon 


       C/G                 Em 
and he grips the fourty-five 
                  Am                  Fmaj7 
that rests in the glove box when he drives 
        C/G        Em                 Am     C Fmaj7 
then puts the gun away and wonders what to do 


   C/G                 Em 
so he parks in his driveway 
     Am                Fmaj7  
and head against the steering wheel 
       C/G          Em                  Am C Fmaj7 
and tries to think what to tell his wife 


           C/G              Em 
and in the kitchen, he explains 
     Am      `     Fmaj7 
and swears they'll be okay 
           C/G               Em                    Am C C 
she says, you're the only thing i need in this life 


      Fmaj7 G6  C 
so he bides his time 
           Fmaj7 G6 C 
and says a slow goodbye 
              Fmaj7 G6  C     Em       Fmaj7                     
swears by the morn-ing light, he'll be fine 
            


       Fmaj7  G6   C 
yes he hides  his eyes 
           Fmaj7 G6   C 
though its hard some nights 
              Fmaj7  G6    C       Em       Fmaj7 
he'll take his own sweet time, and he'll be fine 



C/G Em Am Fmaj7     C/G Em C C
