No Ordinary Blue.
John Prine.
Album: The Tree Of Forgiveness.

Intro: A F#m
A
Last night, turned on the TV,
A
Looked out the window,
                         F#m
And then pulled down the shades,

And I came to, the conclusion,
                     A   D A
My mind could not be made,

A
She said "Well what're you thinking?
A
I'm just a-wondering
                       F#m
Is it somethin' that I did?"
             F#m
I said "It's nothing just something,
                 A   D A
I picked up as a kid"

D A      E            A        
I hear a lot of empty spaces,
D A     E
I see a big hole in the view,
D A       E            A
I feel an outline that traces,
D    A       E
An imaginary path back to you,
                       A    F#m A F#m
This ain't no ordinary blue,

A
Last night, for a split sec,
A
I was a train-wreck,
                    F#m
I was a complicated guy,

I hope we don't find,

This's the last time,
                 A   D A
We ever say "Goodbye"

A
The orange bloom, is rising
A
On the horizon,
                       F#m
Of the outskirts of my mind,

I sat and listened, as it glistens,
                          A    D A
It says "Leave the past behind"

D A      E            A
I hear a lot of empty spaces,
D A     E
I see a big hole in the view,
D A       E            A
I feel an outline that traces,
D   A        E
An imaginary path back to you,
                       D   A
This ain't no ordinary blue,

                              D    A
Too cold to hold, too deep to swim to,
Bm                            D    A Bm E
Too cold to hold, too deep to swim to,
     A
Last night, turned on the TV,

Looked out the window,

And then pulled down the shades.
