Intro

(E)  (C#m)  (F#7)  (Bsus)  (E)
                             
I (A) came from the north escaping con(E)vention, 
The (B) modern invention that won't let me (E) be 
To the (A) shores of St. Maarten with my fiction addi(G#m)ction,
To (F#) restart the fire a dreamer's (B) remedy

Inde(A)pendence day and all I re(E)member,
Was a (B) midnight rainbow that fell from the (E) sky
As I (A) stand on the beach I slowly sur(G#m)render,
To the (F#) child in me who can't say good(B)bye
 
The (E) rockets in the (G#m) air,
And the (A) people every(E)where 
(C#m) Put away their (F#) differences for a(B)while 
Oh (E) I am still a (G#m) child
When it (A) comes to something (F#) wild 
(E) That was the (B) night I (A) painted the (E) sky

I (A) dug in the sand like a boy, on a (E) mission.
And (B) there in my hands a pyro's de(E)light
A (A) bombadier, a nighttime magi(E)cian,
I (F#) spark the sky as the rockets fly from (B) view

The (E) rockets in the (G#m) air,
And the (A) people every(E)where 
(C#m) Put away their (F#) differences for a(B)while 
Oh (E) I am still a (G#m) child
When it (A) comes to something (F#) wild 
(E) That was the (B) night I (A) painted the (E) sky

Instrumental

Oh the (A) mortars they roar in antici(E)pation,
Pre(A)ceding the sigh of the uplifted (E) eyes 
It (A) showers us all in sulfuric sens(E)ation,
The (F#) colors shine in a fiery rhyme to(B)night

The (E) rockets in the (G#m) air,
And the (A) people every(E)where 
(C#m) Put away their (F#) differences for a(B)while 
Oh (E) I am still a (G#m) child
When it (A) comes to something (F#) wild 
(E) That was the (C#m) night 
Oh, (E) that was the (F#) night
(E) That was the (B) night, I (A) painted the (E) sky
