VERSE 1:

C   C                               Dm

      She met him on a plane

G   F                  C

     Head in his hands

C   C                              Dm

      Flying south over Chelsea Lake

G   F                                C

      He was a real gone man


She pulled him up out of a hole

He helped her feet meet the ground

But time reversed the poles

And he lost anchor while she drowned


CHORUS:

C                      Dm

Don’t wait for her

G                 F          C

Percy Jones, she’s gone

C                      Dm

Don’t wait for her

G                 F           C

Percy Jones, she’s gone


They built a house on a hill

Long days and warm nights

With just enough rice to fill

Wrong ways and cold fights


BRIDGE:

Dm                    G

And she’s just a kid

                  C                      F

She don’t know what is right

Dm                    G

And he’s just a kid

                C                                      F

He don’t know how to put down the fight

                                       Bb              G

How to put down the fight


His voice brings her home

But his voice puts her fire out

And all the love in the world

Only equates to a drop of doubt


She knows where she wants to go

And she knows he can’t come with

Their love was like a fairy tale

But it was not a myth


CHORUS:

Don’t wait for her

Percy Jones, she’s gone

Don’t wait for her

Percy Jones, she’s gone



Don’t wait for her

Percy Jones, she’s gone

Don’t wait for her

Percy Jones, she’s gone

… she’s gone

WILD RIDER

Lyrics & Chords

by Justine Lucas

INTRO:  C C F-C,  C C Am F,  F C, C C (guitar) 


VERSE 1:

C                       F     C
Asleep in the stable 

C                    Am      F
Wax on the table 

F                            C
And tools at his ankles 

Forged in the fire 
Letters in iron 
The scar-bearing rider 

And up with the sunrise 
He unveils his eyes 
The world at his side 


CHORUS:

F
In the sea of strangers 

C
She searches among them 

Am                           F                     G
Seeing his face in everyone beside her 

Dm
In the sea of performers 

C
She searches among them 

Am                F    C
For the wild -- rider 


VERSE 2:

He put on her shoes for her 
Unbraided her hair 
Walked her down to the fair 

In the heat of the spot-light 
Blue shadows on white 
She was a sight 

And higher the sun rose 
He gave her water from a garden hose 
And kissed her wet nose 

(CHORUS)

In the sea of strangers 
She searches among them 
Seeing his face in everyone beside her 
In the sea of performers 
She searches among them 
For the wild rider 


INSTRUMENTAL:

C C F-C,  C C Am F,  F C, C C  (guitar & violin or harmonica) 


VERSE 3:

He took off her shoes for her 
And he braided her hair 
Another day at the fair 

He watched her round ribs rise 
Like a barrel of wine 
Deep heavy sighs 

He hung up her saddle 
Finished the handle 
And blew out the candle 

VERSE 4  (Verse 1 repeat):

Asleep in the stable
Wax on the table
And tools at his ankles...

(CHORUS)

In the sea of strangers 
She searches among them 
Seeing his face in everyone beside her 
In the sea of performers 
She searches among them 

For the wild rider x7

For the wild ---
