To Romona

Chords and lyrics for To Romona by Flying Burrito Brothers

 
R
C 
omona come closer shut softley your watery  
G 
eyes
 
The pangs of your sadness shall pass as your senses will  
C 
rise
 
But the  
F 
flowers of the city thou breath like yet death like the at

times
 
Though I can not explain that in

rhymes
 
Y
C 
our cracked country lips I still wish to kiss
 
Have to be by the touch of your  
G 
skin
 
Your magnetic movements still capture the moments I’m

I’ve heard you say many times that your better than no-one
 
And no-one is better than  
G 
you
 
nothing to  
C 
lose
 
>From  
F 
fixtures and forces and friends your sorrow does  
G 
stem
 
C 
them
 
meaningless

ring
 
For deep in my heart there’s no help I can  
C 
bring
 
E

verything passes everything changes just do what you think you should
 
Then someday maybe who knows baby I’ll come and be crying to yo

Sweet Desert Childhood

Chords and lyrics for Sweet Desert Childhood by Flying Burrito Brothers

G 
It was off the desert road
 
Fourteen  
C 
miles up in the canyon I was  
G 
born
G 
Where the rocks were piled up high
 
And  
C 
when the sun went down
 
They looked like big old  
G 
monsters
 
You could  
C 
yell out your whole name
 
And the  
A7 
echo would come back crystal  
C 
clear
 
And the s
G 
ilence was so deafening
 
I could  
C 
hear it like thunder in my  
G 
ears
G 
I still taste the sweet cool water
 
As it  
C 
bubbled out to quench the burning  
G 
sand
 
As the  
C 
desert wind blew soft across the l
G 
and
 
Somewhere  
C 
far away a coyote
A7 
Called out his mournful ghostly
C 
song
 
And I  
G 
knew that very soon
C 
Sweet desert childhood would be  
G 
gone
 
Can a  
C 
man
Bm 
ever go back  
C 
home 
 
again?
 
Can a  
C 
man ever  
Am 
live that way  
D 
again?
C 
G 
G 
The old windmill made a groan
 
As it  
C 
turned around to face the cold of the  
G 
night
G 
The proof of all existence
 
Crackled  
C 
warm in the flickering fire
G 
light
 
And the  
C 
stars were so perfect
 
That I w
A7 
ondered might this all just be a
C 
dream
 
Could this  
G 
all-alone place really  
C 
be as magic as it  
G 
seems?
C 
Can a man ever  
Am 
go back home  
C 
again?
C 
Can a man ever  
Am 
live that way
D 
again?
