Tim Hanauer: Lyrics

The Hurricane Night

(Tim Hanauer)
November 28, 2012

Capo 4

 

C/G                                                                                                Am                                     F

I used to live on a hillside surrounded by a maze of old stonewalls and a field of             thorns

Maybe I was sheltered by a roof and walls that were so full of holes; cold rain that falls.

 

F                                                    Am                       

Until you I knew that bleak was bright

G                                    G                                             F                 C

You were sunlight                            Through the hurricane night

 

C/G                                                                                                Am                                     F

I used to live on a hillside, the setting of a cemetery dawn, all storm and calm

Often I felt confused by the rising tide that only seems to flow, nowhere to go

 

F                                                    Am                       

Until you I knew that bleak was bright

G                                    G                                             F                 C

You were sunlight                            Through the hurricane night

 

F                                   Fm                                C                        Am            (step up to G)

Every word you say--rain--to my burning soul

All the love we make--takes--                        me home

 

F                                                    Am                       

Until you I knew that bleak was bright

G                                    G                                             F                 C

You were sunlight                            Through the hurricane night
