INTRO
          accordion only
| Am | Am C D   | Am C D  C D |  C D    | 
| Am | Am C D   | Am C D  C D |  C D    |
          full band

| Am | Am C D   | Am C D  C D |  C D    |


VERSE
         Am
It was a slow day
        Am  C   D
And the sun was beating
       Am       C      D       C   D     C  D D
On the soldiers by the side of the road
            Am
There was a bright light
  Am         C  D
A shattering of shop windows
    Am   C      D             C   D     C      D D
The bomb in the baby carriage was wired to the radio


CHORUS
G                      G   C       D
 These are the days of miracle and wonder
G     C      D    C  D           C  D D
 This is the long distance call
G                   G       C     D
 The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
G    C      D       C  D    C  D D
 The way we look to us all
G                     G       C      D
 The way we look to a distant constellation
       G     C    D      C  D        C  D D
That's dying in a corner of the sky
G                      G   C       D
 These are the days of miracle and wonder
    G     C   D     C     D    C     D D
And don't cry baby, don't cry, don't cry


INTERLUDE
| Am | Am C D   | Am C D  C D |  C D    |
| Am | Am C D   | Am C D  C D |  C D    |


VERSE
         Am
It was a dry wind
        Am    C         D
And it swept across the desert
       Am       C      D      C  D     C  D D
And it curled into the circle of birth
        Am
And the dead sand
Am      C      D
Falling on the children
    Am      C       D       C   D       C     D D
The mothers and the fathers and the automatic earth


CHORUS
G                      G   C       D
 These are the days of miracle and wonder
G     C      D    C  D           C  D D
 This is the long distance call
G                   G       C     D
 The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
G    C      D       C  D    C  D D
 The way we look to us all
G                     G       C      D
 The way we look to a distant constellation
       G     C    D      C  D        C  D D
That's dying in a corner of the sky
G                      G   C       D
 These are the days of miracle and wonder
    G     C   D     C     D    C     D D
And don't cry baby, don't cry, don't cry


INTERLUDE (synth guitar licks)
| Am | Am C D   | Am C D  C D |  C D    |
| Am | Am C D   | Am C D  C D |  C D    |


VERSE
       Am
It's a turn-around jump shot
     Am   C    D
It's everybody jump start
     Am    C   D      C        D    C      D   D
It's every generation throws a hero up the pop charts
Am                      Am  C      D
Medicine is magical and magical is art
            Am   C      D
Think of the Boy in the Bubble
    C   D         C   D     D
And the baby with the baboon heart


CHORUS
        G                            G      C      D
And I believe, these are the days of lasers in the jungle
G      C      D      C   D     C     D D
Lasers in the jungle somewhere
G                    G        C    D
 Staccato signals of constant information
  G      C    D     C  D                C      D         D
A loose affiliation of millionaires and billionaires and baby

G                      G   C       D
 These are the days of miracle and wonder
G     C      D    C  D           C  D D
 This is the long distance call
G                   G       C     D
 The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
G    C      D       C  D    C  D D
 The way we look to us all
G                     G       C      D
 The way we look to a distant constellation
       G     C    D      C  D        C  D D
That's dying in a corner of the sky
G                      G   C       D
 These are the days of miracle and wonder
    G     C   D     C     D    C     D D
And don't cry baby, don't cry, don't cry
