THE RED STROKES
BY. James Garver, Lisa Sanderson,
    Jenny Yates and Garth Brooks
Album
IN PIECES

 
 Here is what I have figured out so far, wrong or right, this is how I
 play it.

CAPO 1st Fret

INRTO:
piano arranged for guitar.  Someday I'll put the dobro in too.

  A                      F#m                Dmaj7

Verse: 

A
Moonlight on canvas, midnight and wine 

F#m                D                E
Two shadows starting to softly combine 

    A 
The picture they're painting is one of the heart 

       F#m                           E
And to those who have seen it it's a true work of art 
 


Chorus:
        A            E         F#m
Oh, the red strokes passions uncaged 

D                     E
Thundering moments of tenderness rage 

        A            E           F#m
Oh, the red strokes tempered and strong (3nd time fearlessly drawn) 

                E          Dsus2
Burning the night like the dawn 
 
Verse: 
Steam on the window, salt in a kiss 
Two hearts have never pounded like this  
Inspired by a vision that they can't command 
Erasing the borders with each brush of a hand 
 
Chorus:

Bridge: 
        F#m           E            D          C#m    
Oh, the blues will be blue and the jealouslies green 

         F#m             E          E                Esus
But when love picks it's shade it demands to be seen

Steam on the window, salt in a kiss 
Two hearts have never pounded like this
