HUMBOLDT TO THE BONE – JOANNE RAND 2016

E A E E
OUR LITTLE BURG BY THE SEA
A A E E
IS LEFTY AND TRENDY AND FREE
A A E E
THE AIR’S ALWAYS FRESH AND THE FISH ARE THE BEST
D D D D E
AND THE GARDEN’S GROW BOUNTIFULLY IN OUR BURG BY THE SEA


E A E E
OUR LITTLE COLLEGE TOWN
A A E E
MAY LOOK A WEE BIT RUN-DOWN
A A E ßE
BUT REALTY IS HIGH AND LEGAL JOBS ARE HARD TO COME BY
D D D D E
AND NOMADIC SQUATTERS ABOUND IN OUR COLLEGE TOWN


A A E E
AND THERE’S NO OTHER PLACE THAT WE’D RATHER GRACE
B B E E
WITH SEEDS OF REBELLION WE’VE SEWN
A A E E
WE ARE PROUD OF OUR PAST AND A SPIRIT THAT LASTS
B B E E
WE ARE HUMBOLDT TO THE BONE


E A E E
OUR LITTLE HUMBOLDT HOME
A A E E
IS A PLACE WHERE THE WAYWARD MY ROAM
A A E E
WE MAY APPEAR AS IF WE’RE TOO POOR TO LIVE HERE
D D D D E
BUT IT’S A STYLE WE PROUDLY OWN IN OUR HUMBOLDT HOME


E A E E
OUR LITTLE ARCATA-VILLE
A A E E
WHERE THE HIPPIES ARE OVER THE HILL
A A E E
I SEEN 30 YEARS HERE AND I’LL SEE 30 MORE STILL
D D D D E
PUT YOUR WEAPONS AWAY ‘CAUSE IT’S CHILL IN ARCATA-VILLE


A A E E
AND THERE’S NO OTHER PLACE THAT WE’D RATHER GRACE
B B E E
WITH SEEDS OF REBELLION WE’VE SEWN
A A E E
WE ARE PROUD OF OUR PAST AND A SPIRIT THAT LASTS
B B E E
WE ARE HUMBOLDT TO THE BONE

BRIDGE:
E C#m
IT’S THE GUARDIAN PRESENCE OF THE REDWOOD TREES
F#m D
AND THE PEOPLE WHO DARE TO CARE ABOUT THESE
E C#m
IT’S THE POUNDING SURF AND THE SEA LIONS’ ROAR
A B B
MAKES ME SHOUT FOR MORE! OWWWW!!!

E A E E
OUR LITTLE ARCATA-VILLE
A A E E
WHERE THE HIPPIES ARE OVER THE HILL
A A E E
I SEEN 30 YEARS HERE AND I’LL SEE 30 MORE STILL
D D D D
PUT YOUR WEAPONS AWAY ‘CAUSE IT’S CHILL

A A E E
AND THERE’S NO OTHER PLACE THAT WE’D RATHER GRACE
B B E E
WITH SEEDS OF REBELLION WE’VE SEWN
A A E E
WE ARE PROUD OF OUR PAST AND A SPIRIT THAT LASTS
B B E E
WE ARE HUMBOLDT TO THE BONE

A A E E
AND WE’LL LAUGH IN YOUR FACE IF YOU SAY WE’VE DISGRACED
B B E E
THIS COUNTRY YOU CALL YOUR OWN
A A E E
WE ARE PROUD OF OUR PAST AND A SPIRIT THAT LASTS
B B E E
WE ARE HUMBOLDT TO THE BONE
B B E E
HUMBOLDT TO THE BONE
B B E E
HUMBOLDT TO THE BONE
