HERE WE ARE

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


                 A
             I.  I see us in another town
                 E
                 in another state,
                      E7
                 with heat in every room
                     A
                 and food on our plates,

                 paper to draw on,
                   D
                 a few good books to read,
                 Bm
                 not a life o' leisure,
                 E
                 only what we need:
                 F#m     E                D
                 a magic road that leads afar.
                          F#m  E        A
                 there we are, there we are.


                 A
            II.  now the quarter moon is rising
                        E
                 in the darkness on the Nile.
                          E7
                 when you see the crescent sideways,
                    A
                 it really is a smile.

                 the moon is over Austin,
                      D
                 it's over Tennessee,
                      Bm
                 they see it in Australia,
                      E
                 it's over you and me,
                 F#m     E             D
                 a magic lantern from afar.
                         F#m  E        A
                 here we are, here we are.


                         F#m          E
      CHORUS A:  here we are, here we are.
                 F#m   E   A
                 ooooh----


                 A
           III.  now the moving van is leaving,
                        E
                 symbol of my fall from grace.
                     E7
                 you think you will be happy
                     A
                 in another place.

                 but when you're worse off than ever
                           D
                 with your stupid, wealthy beau,
                 Bm
                 I'll resist temptations
                    E
                 to say I told you so.
                 F#m       E                 D
                 you can't leave old blues behind
                                   F#m   E       A
                 when it's in your mind, in your mind.


                            F#m               E
      CHORUS B:  now here I am, and there you are.
                 F#m   E   A
                 ooooh----
