4th of July
by Robert Earl Keen, Jr.

Written by: Alvin

Capo 3rd fret
~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^

        D                         A
She's waiting for me, when I get home from work
G                             D
Ah but things just ain't the same
                               A
She turns out the lights, and cries in the dark
 G                               A
She wont answer when I call her name

G                          A        D
On the stairs I smoke a cigarette alone
G                          A
Mexican kids are shootin' fireworks below

 D                Bm
Hey baby, Its the 4th of July
 D                Bm
Hey baby, Its the 4th of July
                   D
Its the 4th of July

     D                         A
She gives me the cheek, but I wanted the lips
 G                              D
And I dont have the strength to go
                                A       
On the lost side of town, in a dark apartment
    G                     A
We gave up tryin so long ago

G                         A         D
On the stairs I smoke a cigarette alone
G                           A
Mexican kids are shootin' fireworks below

 D                Bm
Hey baby, Its the 4th of July
 D                Bm
Hey baby, Its the 4th of July
                   D
Its the 4th of July

D  A  G  A  D  Bm  D  Bm

G                 A       D   
Whatever happens, I apologize
G                     A
Dry your tears baby, walk outside

 D                Bm
Hey baby, Its the 4th of July
 D                Bm
Hey baby, Its the 4th of July
                   D
Its the 4th of July
 D                Bm
Hey baby, Its the 4th of July
 D                Bm
Hey baby, Its the 4th of July
                   D
Its the 4th of July
D                 Bm
   We forgot all about...
D             Bm   D
   The 4th of July

I believe the song Fourth of July was written by Dave Alvin, not
Robert Earl Keen. I have on the Album King of California by Alvin
and the writting is credited to him [ Alvin ]. Also credit is to
Alvin on R. E. K. 's CD Pinic
