SOUTH CAROLINA WAY
(STEVE DAFOE 2007)
(COPYRIGHTED)


CHORUS :

D ( 4 plucks High E, 1 pluck of G &B)
AND BABY, HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE RAIN

Fmaj7 (4 plucks High E, 1 pluck of G &B)
ON DOWN OLE' SOUTH CAROLINA WAY.......

D ( 4 plucks High E, 1 pluck of G &B)
SO WHEN YOUR GHOSTS GIVE UP IN VAIN

Fmaj7 (4 plucks High E, 1 pluck of G &B)
LET'S HEAD ON DOWN.....MAYBE WE'LL JUST STAY
MAYBE WE'LL JUST STAY
IN OLE' SOUTH CAROLINA WAY


VERSE 1:

CM7 (SLOW) Fmaj7 (SLOW)
HOW LONG SINCE I'VE SEEN THOSE EYES ?
A REMINDER OF YOU 'DANCIN' BACK FROM THE BRINK
ALWAYS MANY MORE LOWS THAN HIGHS
G C Fmaj7
LAST I HEARD ...YOU WERE HANGING IN L.A.
GREAT PLACE FOR GHOSTS TO KEEP LIVIN' A LIE
C Fmaj7
KEEP LIVING A LIE ................. TO: CHORUS

VERSE 2:

CM7 (SLOW) Fmaj7 (SLOW)
I KNOW THE SOUL TORMENTS...FILLS US WITH PAIN
BUT TRY TO WORK THROUGH IT WITH ME
I NEED YOU...DON'T CARE IF WE BOTH GO INSANE
G C Fmaj7
DON'T KNOW HOW MANY CHANCES THERE ARE BEFORE LOVE GOES
SO LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU GET ON THAT AIRPLANE
C Fmaj7
ON THAT AIRPLANE.................. TO: CHORUS
VERSE 3:

CM7 (SLOW) Fmaj7 (SLOW)
CAN'T WAIT 'TILL I SEE THOSE EYES
I KNOW YOU GOT MY BACK.....I GOT YOURS
BUT BEFORE LOVE STOPS, BEFORE THE SAD GOODBYE
G C Fmaj7
LEAVE THE GHOSTS BEHIND.....COME BACK TO ME
'CAUSE LIFE IS ABOUT NEVER STOPPING TO TRY
C Fmaj7
NEVER STOP TO TRY..............

TO: CHORUS
