Written by Chris Thile and a member of the Jayhawks (whose name escapes me at the moment...). Play it in a breezy kind of waltz style. The EaugA really makes the song. I'm going to try to work it into a song someday...
Jealous of the Moon
Nickel Creek

Chords: (e-->E) EaugA [01120x] C7 [01323x] Fmaj7 [01233x]
Verse 1
Am EaugA
Trying on a brand new dress
Am C7
But you haven't worn the old one yet
Fmaj7 Dm
You've come too far
To turn around now
Am EaugA
You've given up the good fight
Am C7
But You're as strong as anyone
Fmaj7 Dm
You're back where you started from
Fmaj7 Dm G
I see you're back where you started from

C Em F
Staring down the stars, Jealous of the moon
Dm G
You wish you could fly
C Em F
But you're staying where you are, There's nothing you can do
Dm G
If you're too scared to try

Verse 2

Drag your pretty head around
Swearing you're gonna drown
With a beautiful sigh
In a river of lies


E Am (walkdown : D-2,D-0,A-3,A-2)
So, why don't you call me, I could save you
Together we'll find a God we can pray to
Dm Am
That'll take you by the hand

Verse 3

I hate to see a friend of mine
Laughing out loud, When she's crying inside
But you've got your pride....


C Em
You're staring down the stars
C Em
Stay where you are
C Em
You're jealous of the moon
But there's nothing you can do
Dm G Dm
If you're too scared to try
Dm G Am
If you're too scared to try

They say only a pawnshop guitar can play the blues. An eBay one does it better. A guitar's bound to feel unloved if her owner plasters pictures of her over the internet for all to see and then sells her off to the highest anonymous bidder.
