leaving (emily saliers)


chords quickly picked out by neil@andineil.com because the intro sounded
somewhat like tracks of my tears, and that's one of the few things i can
play...


intro:
a, a, d, a
a, e, d, a


             a
jet fuel and traffic lines
                  e
pulling up to the delta signs
                 bm
distant shape of my hometown
                      d
black stain where the wheels touch down


              a
i pick up the morning news
                         e
pass the man who's never shined my shoes
                     bm
through security and to the train
                       d
that'll take me to the aeroplane


a, a, d, a


                       a
count the miles on the highway
           e
the sum of all my days
                   bm
there's a postcard there's a call
                           d
there's a picture for your bedroom wall


                       a
but do you ever wonder through and through
                           e
who's that person standing next to you
                  bm
and after all the nights apart
                      d
is there a home for a travelling heart


chorus:
                 a  e    bm  d
but if i weren't leaving you
             a    e   bm  d
i don't know what i'd do
               a             bm
but the more i go the less i know
                    a          d
will the fire still burn on my return
            bm              a/c#        d
to keep the path lit is the only road i know
       bm            e     a
honey, all i know to do is go


a, a, d, a
a, e, d, a


                     a
cup of coffee and my bags are packed
                e
same vow not to look back
              bm
familiar emptiness inside
            d
as the distances grow wide


                    a
and though i vow to memorize
                      e
the last look in your loving eyes
                   bm
it's here dusk and there dawn
                           d
it's like a curtain gettin slowly drawn


chorus


etc. to fade...


i thank you

hey all,


[...]


so, for those interested, i thought i'd post a brief review of the mt
tour. [...]


great falls (10/2)


indigenous was not at this show. so, a local guy from browning, mt by the
name of ed juneau opened the whole thing. he was pretty country-western,
but i liked him. joan baez followed with the same songs she sang in
billings (there but for fortune, the spiritual which i do not know the
name of, and world falls and don't think twice w/ig). she also did
diamonds and rust with emily. that was totally awesome and i think what
was almost greater was sitting there (6th row, em side), looking up at
those two singing and then, looking over at the side of the stage and
seeing amy and bonnie raitt standing there, looking like they were in as
much awe of the whole thing as i was. intense.


next, the girls came on. i, once again, don't have the complete setlist,
but i'm pretty sure i remembered most of the songs. perhaps someone else
who was there (i.e. ryan?) could help me out? amyray, here's what i have
(in no particular order):


get out the map
shame on you
love's recovery
go ("a very acoustic version of a very electric song", says amy)
point hope (i know this is picky, but it is called point hope, not point
*of* hope...actually it's point hope foia, if you really want to get
picky. anyone know what foia stands for?)
wood song
galileo
closer to fine
they may have done gone again too, but i simply can't remember.


[...]


the grand finale was, once again, angel from montgomery with everyone and
it was as gorgeous as the time before.


bozeman (10/3)


this was dar williams' first show with the tour. amy was mia (anyone here
about where she was?). dar opened with when i was a boy and played a
couple songs i was not familiar with and played are you out there. then,
indigenous came on and played five or six songs. i think this was the
first show where bonnie came on and played guitar with them on one song.


emily came on all by her little self after indigenous. of course, i missed
amy, but i was excited to see what emily would play by herself. she came
out and said something about missing amy and how amy is like her "phantom
limb" and then, she turned to the mic where amy usually is and said, "hi,
ame." it was too cute. i don't know how to explain it, but she just looked
so vulnerable when she came out there and was standing there all by
herself. but, she was vibrant and her short set was awesome (and the
thoughts of vulnerability quickly vanished). she started out with it's
alright and philosophy of loss. i can't remember her exact words, but
before philosophy of loss, she said something about how she wrote it when
she was sort of mad at "the church" and alluded to how it's hard to
pigeonhole an entire organization like that, but she was mad at how they
won't ordain gays and lesbians. it was fabulous. then, she did some joni
mitchell song. i am not familiar with joni mitchell so i have no idea what
it was, but it starts out something like "sitting (or riding maybe?) in
some vehicle, sitting in some cafe". if anyone knows, i would love to know
what song it is. she brought out hutch hutchinson (bonnie's bass player)
to play with her and told us that she'd "never done this song live before
so...whatever." but, it was great. she ended it all up (her solo part
anyway) with history of us, which she prefaced with "this is my dad's
favorite song. wherever you are, dad, this is for you...and mom." it was
cute.


then, joan and dar came out and they did don't think twice, which i liked,
but not as much as when amy does it. and emily did diamonds and rust with
joan again. joan did pretty much the same set by herself. i honestly don't
remember much of bonnie's set. she did nick of time nearly, maybe even,
every night. and a jackson browne song i also don't know the name
of. ("boy, boy, this world is not your toy...this world is long on hunger,
this world is short on joy." it's on his lives in the balance cd.) after
bonnie, she, joan, emily, and dar sang a song i don't know the name
of. but, again, i would be most appreciative if anyone could enlighten
me. it went something like, "if religion was a thing that money could buy,
the rich would live, but the poor would die. all my trials, lord, soon be
over." my mom recognized it, but didn't know the name or who originally
sang it. they sang it a capella and it was gorgeous. then, they all did
angel from montgomery again and ended up with home, which is the song
bonnie raitt did on the honor cd. that was cool.


missoula (10/4)


[...]


amyray, this show had the best crowd of them all. but, they still didn't
stand up until the end and i think by now, the girls had given up on any
singalongs. but, they were still pretty vocal. i really missed joan baez
at this show. but, other than that, it was great. dar opened with four or
five songs, followed by indigenous. bonnie came out and played with them
on one song again. i do have a complete ig setlist for this one. in order,
it goes:


jonas & ezekiel
peace tonight
gone again
ghost
devotion
the joni mitchell song (w/o amy)
go (which amy prefaced with "here's a stupid rock song.")
get out the map
point hope
galileo
don't think twice (with dar and bonnie and no joan. bonnie tried to do
joan's bob dylan imitation and afterwards was remarking on how she didn't
think it was as good. then, she added, "but, i never had personal
experience with the man.")
all my trials (or whatever it's called. with dar and bonnie)


then, after bonnie's set, they all played, once again, angel from
montgomery. [...]


they ended up with...bury my heart at wounded knee, which was one of the
many highlights. i never thought i would see it live and to see them all
rocking out to it was awesome. this was the point at which everyone stood
up. it was great.


[...]


peace, love, and indigo,
amy m.
