    "The Dark" Lyrics

    Guy Clark

    Hammer on both strings for the Em.
    You will have to experiment
    To get the exact position of the chord changes with respect
    To the lyrics but this is close.

    In the dark you can sometimes hear your own heartbeat
    Or the heart of the one next to you
    And the house settles down after holding itself up all day
    Shoulders slump, gives a big sigh
    You hear no ones footfall in the hall

    That drip in the kitchen sink keeps marking time

    June bug on the window screen can't get in but keeps on trying

    One way or another we're all in the dark

    Fireflies and sparks and lightning, stars
    Campfires, the moon headlights on cars
    The Northern lights, the milky way
    You can't see that stuff in the day

    The Earth turns it's back on the sun
    And the stars come out and the planets start to run around
    They call that 'day is done
    But really it's just getting started
    Some folks take comfort in that

    How dark is it it's too dark for goblins
    How dark is it it's so dark you can smell the moon
    How dark is it it's so dark the wind gets lost
    How dark is it so dark the sky's on fire
    How dark is it so dark you can see Fort Worth from here
