Intro
AmGEmD     (3 Times)
C 
     G              
The song came and went
          D             Am     Em
Like the times that we spent
        C           D               C
Hiding out from the rain under the carnival tent
   G              
I laughed and she smiled
          D            Am     Em
It would last for a while
           C             D                    C
You don't know what you got till you lose it all again


Chorus
              Am        G
Listen to the mandolin rain
              Em            D
Listen to the music on the lake
             Am                G        Em    D
Listen to my heart break every time she runs away
              Am      G
Listen to the banjo wind
       Em            D
A sad song drifting low
              C     G                        C         G
Listen to the tears roll down my face as she turns to go


A cool evening dance
Listening to the bluegrass band takes the chill
From the air till they play the last song
I'll do my time
Keeping you off my mind
But there's moments that I find, I'm not feeling too strong

(Chorus)

Bridge

F                      C
Running on down by the lakeshore
        D                   G     
She did love the sound of a summer storm
F                         C
Playin on the lake like a mandolin
         D             G          D
Now it's washing her away once again

(Chorus)

The boat's steaming in
I watch the sidewheel spin and
I think about her when I hear the whistle blow
I can't change my mind
I knew all the time that she'd go
But that's a choice I made long ago

(Chorus)

I love Bruce Hornsby's style of playing. He sure can reach those octaves and then some.
Do you have a favorite song? I think my choice would be, That's Just The Way It Is.
You can see the chord progressions to the song, here.
