Am  C  Dadd4


C                        Em
So we already wrecked the rental car
G                        Em
And I've already lost my way
C                        Em
My feet entombed in this tourist bar
      Am      C
For a day, anyway
C                     Em
So lay me down on the cobblestones
G                      Em
And unfurl this aching jib
C                        Em
The streets all built on ancient bones
        Am          C
And the crib of the ribs


C           G
Won't the mistral
D             Em
Blow it all away
C           G
Won't the mistral
        D
Blow away
C           G
Won't the mistral
D             Em
Blow it all away
             Am             C              Dadd4
Wont it blow, wont it blow, wont it blow


C                          Em
So it's me and you and the baby boy
G                         Em
And a fourth to share the weight
C                 Em
We're eking out a little joy
          Am                 C
From what awaits back in the States, aay


C           G
Won't the mistral
D             Em
Blow it all away
C           G
Won't the mistral
        D
Blow away
C           G
Won't the mistral
D             Em
Blow it all away
             Am             C              Dadd4
Wont it blow, wont it blow, wont it blow


(Honky-tonk piano, guitar solos) 

C       Em      G       Em      C       Em      Am      C  


C           G
Won't the mistral
D             Em
Blow it all away
C           G
Won't the mistral
        D
Blow away
C           G
Won't the mistral
D             Em
Blow it all away
             Am             C              Dadd4
Wont it blow, wont it blow, wont it blow


Fade out:
C           G
Won't the mistral
D             Em
Blow it all away
C           G
Won't the mistral
        D
Blow away  ...

View Just Lyrics...

So we already wrecked through the reservoir
And I've already lost my way
But feel entombed in this tourist bar
For a day, anyway

So lay me out in the cobblestone
And unfurl this aching jib
The streets are built on ancient bones
And the crib are the ribs?

While the mistral blow it all away
While the mistral blow away
While the mistral blow it all away
Won't it blow, won't it blow, won't it blow

So it's me and you and the baby boy
And a thorn to shed away
Reeking out a little joy
What a waste that we stayed

While the mistral blow it all away
While the mistral blow away
While the mistral blow it all away
Won't it blow, won't it blow, won't it blow

While the mistral blow it all away
While the mistral blow away
While the mistral blow it all away
Won't it blow, won't it blow, won't it blow

While the mistral blow it all away
While the mistral blow away
