fromholz steve - "dear darcy"

#

This is a ballad by Steve Fromholz, one of the finest singer/songwriters to
come out of Austin,Texas. It is about his daughter and was written in the
early 70's. It is not available on CD's. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as
I do.

DEAR DARCY
Steve Fromholz

Intro: G D C
G D G D/F#
Dear Darcy, here's a letter from a guitar,
Em A C
He told me I should sing his song for you
Am
And I should say it is from him;
C
He'd like to tell you where he's been.
G D C
But Daddy says it better when he sings.

G D G
D/F#
Dear Darcy, how's your mama? Are you happy?
Em A C
Can a guitar make a living where you are?
Am
Well, your Daddy's band and me,
C
We're just playing to be free.
G D C
But I still miss you listening to my strings. (Stop)

Chorus:
D C G
Dear Darcy, can you see the wind blow by?
C D C G
Covered up with snow like lookin' in a diamond's eye.
C D C G C
Dear Darcy, can you see the Northern lights?
D C G
Dear Darcy, it is really mostly night?
D
Are you all right?

Instrumental:

Chorus:

G D G D/F#
There's a letter on the table from a guitar.
Em A C
To a little girl who's gone four thousand miles,
Am
And when she opens it she'll see
C
There's a postscript just from me
G D C (STOP)
With all the love a letter's line can bring.

G
It'll say Dear Darcy
D G
Do you miss me like I miss you?
Em A C
Are you old enough to know the way I feel?
Am C
Am I man enough to see, how much in you there is of me?
G D C
And do you still believe your Daddy's real?
