Intro: Am  (Am Asus)

     Am                        G               F   - C/E   -         Am
The clock strikes twelve and moondrops burst, out at you from their hiding place
      Am                G                  F   -  C/E  -  Am
Like acid and oil on a madman's face, his reason tends to fly away
      F                   C                F                 E
Like lesser birds on the four winds, like silver scrapes in May
Am               G                 F   -  C/E    -      Am     (Am Asus)
Now the sands become a crust, and most of you have gone away

      Am               G            F    -   C/E  - Am
Come Susy dear, let's take a walk, just out there upon the beach
   Am                  G                F   -  C/E    -        Am
I know you'll soon be married, and you want to know where the winds come from

           F            C            F               E
Well it's never said at all, on the map that Carrie reads
   Am                   G             F   -  C/E   -    Am  (Am Asus)
Behind the clock back there you know, at the Four Winds Bar

Solo: (Am-G F) x4  G 

Am-F G-Am  Am-F G-Am  Am      -          F
Hey, hey,  hey, hey,  four winds at the Four Winds Bar
G          -          Am             Am         -     F
Two doors locked and windows barred, one door let to take you in
     G        -     Am
The other one just mirrors it

Am-F G-Am  Am-F G-Am     Am     -          F
Hey, hey,  hey, hey, in hellish glare and inference,
    G       -      Am             Am       -     F
The other one's a duplicate, the queenly flux, eternal light
G          -       Am                   Am      -  F    G    -  Am
Or the light that never warms, yes the light that never, never warms
        Am    -    F      G-F - G      G-F - G      G-F - G    Am
Or the light that never, never warms, never warms, never warms

     Am                        G               F  -  C/E    -       Am
The clock strikes twelve and moondrops burst, out at you from their hiding place
      Am               G                F   -   C/E    -   Am
Miss Carrie Nurse and Suzy Dear, would find themselves at Four Winds Bar
          F             C          F          E
It's the nexus of the crisis, the origin of storms
 Am                G             F    - C/E   -   Am          (Am Asus)
Just the place to hopelessly, encounter time and then came me

Solo: (Am-G F) x4  G 

Am-F G-Am  Am-F G-Am  Am-F G-Am  Am-F G-Am
Hey, hey, hey, hey,   Hey, hey, hey, hey

Am     -     F     G    -   Am            Am       -        F
Call me Desdinova, eternal light, these gravely digs of mine
      G     -        Am         Am      -       F    G        -        Am
Will surely prove a sight, and don't forget my dog, fixed and consequent

Solo: Am

   Am   -G-F-G    Am -G-F-G        Am
