THE END OF MY PIRATE DAYS (Mary Chapin Carpenter)
-------------------------------------------------
[I _think_ these are the chords Mary Chapin uses.  She might use a
 non-standard tuning, which would mean these are wrong.  But I think
 these sound pretty good.  Feedback is appreciated.]
[Actually in G; capo 3.]
[E=022100; Asus9=x02200; Bsus=x24400; C#m7=x46600.]

E   E   Asus9  Asus9  Bsus  Bsus  E   E
[intro]
E               E              Asus9      Asus9
  The night is soft and silent, new moon at my door
Bsus               Bsus                E                     E
  There's nothing near as quiet as the light I'm looking for
E                     E         Asus9      Asus9
  And last time that it appeared he was lying next to me
Bsus           Bsus             E                 E
  Last time I felt this near to whispered ecstacy

C#m7             Asus9          Bsus              E    -   E/D#
  And those who need adventure, they can sail the seven seas
C#m7             Asus9               E                B
  And those who search for treasure, they must live on grander dreams

E                       E              Asus9               Asus9
  We rose and fell just like the tides, he filled my heart and soul and I
Bsus                  Bsus                     Asus9              Asus9
  Buried all my dreams for someone else to find in my pirate days

C#m7  Asus9  Bsus  E - E/D#     C#m7  Asus9  Bsus  E
[instrumental]

E                E       Asus9           Asus9
  This world is kinder to the kind that won't look back
Bsus             Bsus       C#m7            Asus9 - Bsus
  They are the chosen few, among us now, unbowed somehow
E                 E           Asus9         Asus9
  And one day he turned to me, and before I took one breath
Bsus             Bsus         E               E    -   E/D#
  I knew I would only see his shadow in what light was left

C#m7             Asus9          Bsus              E    -   E/D#
  And those who need adventure, they can sail the seven seas
C#m7             Asus9               E                B
  And those who search for treasure, they must live on grander dreams

E                      E               Asus9                Asus9
  And if I've seen his face since then, it's only been in dreams my friend
Bsus       Bsus          Asus9           Asus9
  Since I came to the end of my pirate days
E                        E               Asus9                Asus9
  And if I've called his name since then, it's only been in dreams my friend
Bsus    Bsus          Asus9             Asus9
  So I came to the end of my pirate days

E   E   Asus9   Asus9   Bsus   Bsus   Asus9   Asus9
[instrumental; repeat and fade]
