Artist : Shovels & Rope
Song : St. Anne’s Parade

[Intro] : G C G D G

[Verse 1] :
       G                             C
By the looks of everyone it’s been a long two weeks
       G                           D
Coming up on the business end of a goodluck streak
         G                             C
Gave ‘em hell in New York City, headed down to New Orleans
G                               D
Drove across Mississippi in the rain

         G                               C
It don’t seem to freeze too much down in New Orleans
        G                          D
But the rain can sure wash out the street
           G                    C
Across the snowline, man it was just in time
                G              D                 G
They diggin ‘em out everywhere north of the Chesapeake

[Chorus 1] :
        C                        G
And I’m up too damn early in the morning
C                                  G
Watching the world around me come alive
      C                    G                Em
And I need more fingers to count the ones I love
     C               D       G
This life may be too good to survive

[Verse 2] :
     G                             C
They cancelled a parade or two for weather
    G                                        D
The kings and saints their roads all soaking wet
        G                            C
We were happy just to all be there together
              G                D                   C
Stoned on the porch smoking on Nicky’s cigarettes

               G                                C
And we’ve been riding down this highway now for all these years
G                               D
Breathing in the dust along the way
             G                            C
But it’s the kindness of a friend that is remembered in the end
        G              D             G
It is a debt that is a pleasure to repay

[Chorus 2] :
       C                                  G
And it never feels like we’re getting any older
        C                            G
But the memories build up around the eyes
      C         D              G             Em
And I need more fingers then I got on my two hands
     C               D          G
This life may be too good to survive

[Bridge] :
                   Em             G
We were dressed to celebrate your wedding day
   C                      Em
We marched along with the St. Anne’s Parade
C                              G
Sang out our hearts while they sent away their dead
    C                          D
The sun shone on the river, we begin our lives instead

[Chorus 1] :
        C                        G
And I’m up too damn early in the morning
           C                 G
I can’t remmeber feeling so alive
    C           D          G                Em
And I need more fingers to count the ones I love
     C               D       Em
This life may be too good to survive
     C               D       G        
This life may be too good to survive

[Outro] : C G C G D G
