Noctifer Birmingham
(on Fast Forward 2nd edition sampler CD)

C                     Fmaj7
i had to stop and catch my breath
when the telephone rang out as loud as death
C                   Am                  F                       C
it was three in the morning there was a low drone of katydids behind your voice
C           Em       Bb                F
when i came down from Harrisburg Pennsylvania
C             G           C
and i saw you by the highway

you asked me if the north was alright
and i said it got kind of cold at night
i could feel your bones shivering way down there in Birmingham
then i came down from Harrisburg Pennsylvania
and i saw you by the highway

C                                 Fmaj7
you reminded me of all the things you'd given up forever
and you asked about the children and you asked about the weather
C               Em       Bb                F
and then i came down from Harrisburg Pennsylvania
C              G         C
and i saw you by the highway
