[Intro]

D Bm D G (x2)

[Verse 1]

D BmDid you spend most of your life waitin'
D GOn a fairytale read between pages?
D BmDid you huddle up close to your boombox radio
D A GIs somebody waiting on the same song?
Bm GAnd we sold our souls on the fantasies
D Awe found in records and black and white movies
Bm GAnd I used to beg June to burn me alive,
D Aif that would get me anywhere but here
[Chorus]
D ANow Etta James, hit that symphony
Bm GCause she drips through my blood like a remedy
DAnd for most of my sad life
A Bm A GI figured I was gonna die alone
D ACause I just burned in the curve of my scars
Bm GTwenty long years away from your heart
D A Bm A GTil finally, finally, my love is in my arms
D Bm D A GMy love is in my arms
[Verse 2]
DAnd it was impossible
Bmto hold on to anything
D GIn my chest was a lonesome, growing cyclone
D BmI kept pictures tucked up into the rearview above
D A Gto the sirens all lost in the ocean
Bm GAnd all we wanted was absolutely everything
D ALike foolish, hungry young lions
Bm GI was lost and alone, a million light years from home
D AIt was nobody's fault but mine
[Chorus]
D ANow Etta James, hit that symphony
Bm GCause she drips through my blood like a remedy
DAnd for most of my sad life
A Bm A GI figured I was gonna die alone
D ACause I just burned in the curve of my scars
Bm GTwenty long years away from your heart
D A Bm A GBut finally, finally, my love is in my arms
[Bridge]
Bm GAnd was there a hole in your life?
DDid you kill to keep warm but somehow
Anever quite satisfied?
Bm GDo you feel like it's always time to go?
DAnd it's always wrong, and it's always off,
Aand it's hard to know, which heart to hold
Bm GNow do you lie to someone,
D Ais someone else, on your mind?
Bm G D ADo you lie to someone with me on your mind?
[Chorus]
D ANow Etta James, hit that symphony
Bm GCause she drips through my blood like a remedy
DAnd for most of my sad life
A Bm A GI figured I was gonna die alone
D ACause I just burned in the curve of my scars
Bm GTwenty long years away from your heart
D A Bm A GTil finally, finally, my love is in my arms
DMy love is in my arms
[Outro]
D AEtta James, Etta James
Bm GEtta James, it's been a long time coming
D AEtta James, Etta James
Bm GEtta James, it's been a long time coming
D A(At last, at last)
Bm GEtta James, it's been a long time coming
D A(At last, at last)
Bm GEtta James, it's been a long time coming
GI could've said my love was coming 'long
