According to me…..

Blue Rodeo – 5 Days In May

Key: Em


Em  D  Am  C

They met in a hurricane
Standing in the shelter out of the rain
Am                         C
She tucked a note into his hand
Later on they took his car
Drove on down where the beaches are
Am                       C
He wrote her name in the sand
G          F             C    D
Never even let go of her hand

Somehow they stayed that way
For those 5 days in May
Made all the stars around them shine
Funny how you can look in vain
Living on nerves and such sweet pain
The loneliness that cuts so fine
To find the face you’ve seen a thousand times

Sometimes the world begins
To set you up on your feet again
Bm                           D
It wipes the tears from your eyes
How will you ever know
The way that circumstances go
Bm                            D
Always going to hit you by surprise
I know my past
You were there
C               Em7/C
In everything I’ve done
You are the one

Looking back it’s hard to tell
Why they stood while others fell
Spend your life working it out
All I know is one cloudy day
They both just ran away
Rain on the windshield heading South
She loved the lines around his mouth


Use an alternating bass/strum pattern, except for last four lines of
chorus (from “I know my past…”) where the chords are finger-plucked
on strings 2 through 5 only.  Those chords are:
Am      X0221X
G/B     X2000X
C       X3201X
Em7/C   X3243X
