OUR TOWN (Iris DeMent)
----------------------
[Capo 4.  Each chord is one measure.]
[Iris plays the D chords as D/F# (200232).  The bass plays an ordinary
 D note, and often rises through E and F# to the G.]

G  C  G  D
[intro; the _entire_song_ uses these four chords, so I won't bother
 to put chords with the lyrics.]

And you know the sun's setting fast
And just like they say, nothing good ever lasts
Well go on now, and kiss it goodbye
But hold on to your lover, 'cause your heart's bound to die
Go on now, and say goodbye to our town, to our town
Can't you see the sun setting down on our town, on our town, goodnight

Up the street beside the red neon light
That's where I met my baby on one hot summer night
He was the tender and I ordered a beer
It's been forty years and I'm still sitting here

But you know the sun's setting fast
And just like they say, nothing good ever lasts
Go on now, and kiss it goodbye
But hold on to your lover, 'cause your heart's bound to die
Go on now, and say goodbye to our town, to our town
Can't you see the sun setting down on our town, on our town, goodnight

It's here I had my babies and I had my first kiss
I've walked down Main Street on the cold morning mist
Over there is where I bought my first car
It turned over once, but then it never went far

And I can see the sun setting fast
And just like they say, nothing good ever lasts
Well go on now, and kiss it goodbye
But hold on to your lover, 'cause your heart's bound to die
Go on now, and say goodbye to our town, to our town
Can't you see the sun setting down on our town, on our town, goodnight

I buried my Mama and I buried my Pa
They sleep up the street beside the pretty brick wall
I bring 'em flowers about every day
But I just gotta cry when I think what they'd say

If they could see how the sun's setting fast
And just like they say, nothing good ever lasts
Go on now, and kiss it goodbye
But hold on to your lover, 'cause your heart's bound to die
Go on now, and say goodbye to our town, to our town
Can't you see the sun setting down on our town, on our town, goodnight

Now I set on the porch and watch the lightning bugs fly
But I can't see too good, I got tears in my eyes
I'm leaving tomorrow, but I don't wanna go
I love you, my town, you'll always live in my soul

But I can see the sun setting fast
And just like they say, nothing good ever lasts
Well go on now, I gotta kiss you goodbye
But I'll hold to my lover, 'cause my heart's bound to die
Go on now, and say goodbye to my town, to my town
I can see the sun has gone down on my town, on my town, goodnight
Goodnight
