I Guess He'd Rather Be In Colorado.
Mary Chapin Carpenter.
Album: The Music In You. (Tribute)
Capo 3.

(I've transposed up to Capo 3
as she uses a capo a lot.)

Intro: D G A7 G6 D A G  D
A                   A7    G6   D
I guess he'd rather be in Colorado,
A                          G            D
He'd rather spend his time out where the sky,
             A               G
Looks like a pearl after the rain,
     D
Once again I see him walking, 
     A
Once again I hear him talking,
       Bm7                G                   D   A G  D
To the stars he makes and asking them the bus fare.

A                   A7    G6   D
I guess he'd rather be in Colorado,
     A               G            D
He'd rather play his banjo in the morning,
         A                G
When the moon is scarcely gone,
       D
In the dawn the subway's coming, 
       A
In the dawn I hear him humming,
         Bm7              G               D
Some old song he wrote of love in Boulder Canyon,
A                   G         D
I guess he'd rather be in Colorado.

Break: A G6 D A G D A Baug G D A F#m Bm7 G Bm7 D

A                   A7    G6   D
I guess he'd rather be in Colorado,
A                   G        D
I guess he'd rather work out where,
    D              A       G
The only thing you earn is what you spend,
       D
In the end up in his office, 
       A                           Bm7
In the end a quiet cough is all he has to show,
   G                 D
He lives in New York City.

Dade: A A7 G  D A G  D A D/E G  D A G  D

(A beautiful version.)
