Rhymes Of Goodbye
from the album Scott 4 (1969)
by Scott Walker

(D-tuning)


Intro: 

D    F#m     C     D



Verse I:

D                  F#m          E         B
I've come far from chains, from metal and stone

A                           E         B
From makeshift designs, I'm seeking a star

D               F#m       E           B
To grab for the truth, to keep myself one

A                              E              B
I turn and it's gone gone, you smile and it's born



Chorus I:

    D           A        G 
The rhymes of a woman, a river that never ends

    D             A          G
The Rhymes of dimension, surrounds us with fire and friends

    F#m              Bm           G              F#m
And roaring through darkness, the night children fly

D                 A           G            C    D
I still hear them singing the rhymes of goodbye



Verse II:

D                     F#m            E       B
"There's nothing within, but within", says a voice

A                             E           B
"That's still my empire, and I've got a choice"

     D           F#m         E           B
It's heedless of death, it's still got a fire

A                              E          B
And I'll keep it burning, with hands of desire

D                F#m         E          B
The bells of our senses can cost us our pride

A                                E         B             
Can toll out the boundaries that level our lives

D                  F#m      E                   B      
Can slash like the sunlight through shadows and cracks

A                          E         B
Our nakedness calling, our nakedness back



Chorus II:

D                A              G
The rhyme of our passions, find beauty in loving love

D                A              G 
The rhyme of our madness, burns cities and push and shoves

    F#m              Bm           G              F#m
And roaring through darkness, the night children fly

D                 A           G            C    D
I still hear them singing the rhymes of goodbye



Outro:

C     D
