Chords and Lyrics Shovels & Rope - The Last Hawk


Artist  : Shovels & Rope
Song : The Last Hawk

Intro :
C

Verse :
C G
I hadn't seen the place since '68
F C G
When we all got high and we rolled that tape
C G
We were holed up waiting for a call from the man
F C G
Who had crashed his bike and gave birth to the band

F G
I frowned and bend in my special way
C Am
Told my daddy I was gonna teach them boys to play
F
'Cause sometimes you know what you know
G
You're never gonna learn if you can't let go

Chorus :
C G
I'm the last hawk, flying over Woodstock
Am C G C
This is my last stop 'fore I'm on my way

Verse :
C G
They say if you've never been to Saugerties
F C G
Then you've never heard the wind whisper through the trees
C G
Never known work till you've worked holes in your knees
F C G
And I betcha you've never heard any songs like these

C G
They dragged our name through the mud out there
F C G
It didn't feel right and it didn't feel fair
C G
'Cause that loud rock n' roll was too much to bear
F C G
For the soft-hearted poets down in Harvard Square

F G
Lee got tired, spit and swear
C Am
Went floating down the river to a rig somewhere
F
'Cause sometimes you know what you know
G
You're never gonna learn if you can't let go

Chorus :

C G
I'm the last hawk, flying over Woodstock
Am C G
I can see the tree tops, praying for the rain
C G
This is my last stop, gonna take a long walk
Am C G C
Before I take my boots off, I'll see ya round the way

Verse :

C G
This may be the last I'll see
F C G
Of the rotten old house down in Saugerties
C G
I was here and I made a mighty stand
F C G
But I may never stand right there again

C G
Play a sweet song on these old keys
F C G
And hope y'all might remember me
C G
'Cause all that time is here and gone
F C G
Won't be no one left to carry it on

F G
From my piano bench I saw it all
C Am
From the great ascension to the mighty fall
F G
How could anyone know what we sang that day
C Am
Would tear your heart apart this way

F G
All my brothers they have flown away
C Am
But I still got something left that I wanna say
F
It's that sometimes you know what you know
G
You'll never be free if you can't let go

Chorus :
C G
I'm the last hawk, flying over Woodstock
Am C G
I can see the tree tops, praying for the rain
C G
This is my last stop, gonna take a long walk
Am C G C
Before I take my boots off, I'll see ya round the way
