This file is part of a collection that (moreso than the rest of the site) are not meant to be detailed or accurate transcriptions of the original recordings. They're just some simple chord charts that I made for my own use, some of them my own arrangements.

And half an hour later we packed up our things
We said we'd send letters and all of those little things
And they knew we were lying, but they smiled just the same
It seemed they'd already forgotten we came

Now back at the homestead where the air makes you choke
People don't know you and trust is a joke
We don't even have pictures, just memories to hold
That grow sweeter each season as we slowly grow old
