                CAPO: 4th Fret



INTRO: C 
 

Drinking early morning coffee
F                        
Talking with good friends
    C                                G7
And walking the streets of rough-cut stone
        C                  
She was once a miner's city
         F                                   C
Now the ghost of a dying town, but there's a fire 
        G7              C
Burning bright in old Jerome


Am                          Em
Some have come for fortune, some have come for love
    F                      C                  G7
And some have come for the things they cannot see
        C                         
Now the grass is green and growing
          F                             C
Where the gardens once had died and the birds sing 
       G7              C        G7   C
In the young Ailanthus trees


  
And they say that once you live here
       F               
You'll never really go
              C                            G7
'Cause she'll have a hold on you until you die
         C 
With her ground moving crazy
    F                                C
Her fierce wind blowing free and her ruins 
         G7                C
Standing proud against the sky


Am                             Em
Houses cling to mountains like miners cling to dreams
          F              C                  G7
They hold on so long and then they just let go
         C 
And this mountain she's your mistress
       F                               C
You'll ride her 'til you fall and wash down
       G7           C
To the valley far below


CHORUS:
          Am                       F 
There are stories they tell on Cleopatra
          C                         G7
There are stories that never can be told
    Am           F               C             Am
The wind and the rain sing their mountain lullaby
    G                  G7      C
The copper shines like Arizona gold


INTERLUDE: Am  F  C  G7  C


  
And her walls stand strong and silent
        F
Staring out with empty eyes
     C                                 G7
Like beggars blind and lame that do no harm
           C 
With their empty rooms that hold
    F                             C
The old town's memories and their doorways 
           G7             C
That reach out like empty arms

        
       Am                                  Em
In the streets the children play, climbing up the crooked stairs
    F                C               G7
And lovers touch and turn to go back home
        C 
And the sounds of hammers echo
       F                        C
In the once forgotten halls and hope stirs
       G7             C
In the heart of old Jerome


CHORUS:
    Am                        F
The moon shines bright on Cleopatra
          C                        G7
Where the mines lie sleeping far below
    Am           F               C             Am
The wind and the rain sing their mountain lullaby
    G                  G7      C
The copper shines like Arizona gold
