Five Days in May

They met in a hurricane standing in the shelter out of the rain
She tucked a note into his hand
Later on they took his car, drove on down where the beaches are
He wrote her name in the sane
Never even let go of her hand

Somehow they stayed that way for those five days in May
Made all the stars around them shine
Funny how you can look in vain living on nerves and such sweet pain
The pain that cuts so fine
To find the face you've seen a thousand times

CHORUS: Sometimes the world begins to set you up on your feet again
And, oh, it wipes the tears from your eyes
How will you ever know the way that circumstances go?
Oh it's gonna hit you by surprise
But I know my past, you were there
in everything I've done, you are the one

Looking back it's hard to tell
Why they stood while others fell
Spend my life working it out
All I know is one cloudy day
They both just ran away
Rain on the windshield heading south
Oh, she loved the lines around his mouth

CHORUS: Sometimes the world begins to set you up on your feet again
And, oh, it wipes the tears from your eyes
How will you ever know the way that circumstances go?
Oh, it's gonna hit you by surprise
But I know my past, you were there
In everything I've done, you are the one





songwriters: Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor of Blue Rodeo

performed by: Blue Rodeo

date released: 1993 by Blue Rodeo for the album
"Five Days in July"

The song was recorded on singer/guitarist, Greg Keelor's farm in southern Ontario in July, 1992. Originally cut to be demos, the recordings of "Five Days in July" had a warmth and spontenaity in a Neil Young-sound that forced the decision to release them on an album. Blue Rodeo never looked back as the album went on to become a 6X platinum seller.
