"Favourite Hour" (Capo: 5th. fret)

____Intro: A

____Verse: 1

 A         C#m          F#m7        A7
 Figure han___ging on a leather band
 D            F#m7           Bm7
 cog___consults the watch he cups in his hand
            E                 A                 E
 Bejewelled movement measures lost and vanished time
              Fdim              A
 pray for the boy who makes his bed in cold earth and quicklime

____Chorus:

    Amaj7    F#m7              Bm7
 So stay the hands, arrest the time
           Fdim             A
 till I am captured by your touch
             F#m7          Dm/F   
 bless___ings____I don't count____
       Fm             C
 small mercies and su___ch
               Em7           Am7                 D
 the flags may lower as we approach the favourite hour

____Verse: 2

A              C#m                F#m7        A7
 Now there's a tra___gic waste of brutal youth
D            F#m7          Bm7
 strip___and polish this unvar___nished truth
            E                 A                E
 the tricky door that gapes beneath the ragged noose
              Fdim          A
 the crippled verdict begs again for the lamest excuse

____Chorus:

    Amaj7    F#m7              Bm7
 So stay the hands, arrest the time
           Fdim             A
 till I am captured by your touch
             F#m7          Dm/F   
 bless___ings____I don't count____
       Fm             C
 small mercies and su___ch
               Em7           Am7                 D
 the flags may lower as we approach the favourite hour

____Verse: 3

A                  C#m         F#m7     A7
 Pull___out my eyes___so I may never spy
D            F#m7              Bm7
 wa___ving branches as they're waving goodbye
               E                 A              E
 their vile perfume brings to my mouth a bitter taste
                 Fdim                  A
 the murmuring brooks had best speak up, it's a terrible waste

____Chorus:

    Amaj7    F#m7              Bm7
 So stay the hands, arrest the time
           Fdim             A
 till I am captured by your touch
             F#m7          Dm/F   
 bless___ings____I don't count____
       Fm             C
 small mercies and su___ch
               Em7           Am7                 D
 the flags may lower as we approach the favourite hour
