"Yellowknife Evening"


[Dm7/G: From top string down, notes are F,C,A,D,C,G]
  

LEAD-IN: Cmaj7-Dm7/G- Cmaj7-Dm7/G-Cmaj7

	  Dm7/G	  Cmaj7  Dm7/G  Cmaj7  Dm7/G	
It's a Yellowknife evening
  	 Cmaj7	      Dm7/G Cmaj7 Dm7/G Cmaj7 Dm7/G
And I'm sitting down by the bay.
          Fmaj7		Em		Dm7	    G
There's a fishing boat coming in from out on the lake
      Fmaj7	Em		      Dm7	    G
And a big green float plane landing down on Back Bay.
 	  Fmaj7	   Em		      Dm7	 G
There's a muskrat swimming by, he's going somewhere,
     Fmaj7	      Em	   Dm7	    G
And seagulls playing on the reef away out there,
		  Cmaj7  Dm7/G  Cmaj7  Dm7/G Cmaj7  Dm7/G  Cmaj7  Dm7/G
On a Yellowknife evening.


Well it's ten in the evening,
But the sun's still high in the sky.
It's warm and it's breezy and it's early July
And the feeling is mellow but I'm not quite sure why.
There's a friend on his bicycle who stops to say hi
But we can't explain our feelings no matter how we try,
On a Yellowknife evening.


(Bridge)
Dm7	   Cmaj7	 Dm7			    Cmaj7
Long after midnight the light still stays in the sky.
Fmaj7		Em		Dm7	  Em	    Dm	       G-Gsus4-G
Time moves so slowly that the day never seems to draw to an end
		  Cmaj7  Dm7/G  Cmaj7  Dm7/G Cmaj7  Dm7/G  Cmaj7  Dm7/G
On a Yellowknife evening.


It's a summertime evening
And I'm happy down by the bay.
There's a comfortable feeling in the warmth of the air
But it's hard to understand it if you haven't been there.
It's the seagulls and the fishing boats, the sun and the breeze,
On these endless days of summer and on evenings like these,
That make a Yellowknife evening.

(Bridge)
Long after midnight the light still stays in the sky.
Time moves so slowly that the day never seems to draw to an end
On a Yellowknife evening.

It's a summertime evening
And I'm happy down by the bay.
There's a comfortable feeling in the warmth of the air
But it's hard to understand it unless you've been there.
It's the seagulls and the fishing boats, the sun and the breeze,
On these endless days of summer and on evenings like these,
That we will all remember if we ever move away,
But if there's something in this city that would make me stay
It's a Yellowknife evening.
