Intro: C

Bb FMany men have loved the bells
Bb FYou fastened to the rein
Dm GmAnd everyone who wanted you
Dm C Dm CThey found what they will always want again
Em AmYour beauty lost to you yourself
Em AmJust as it was lost to them
F COh take this longing from my tongue
F CWhatever useless things these hands have done
F CLet me see your beauty broken down
Em F CLike you would do for one you love
Your body like a searchlight My poverty revealed I would like to try your charity Until you cry, "Now you must try my greed." And everything depends upon How near you sleep to me Just take this longing from my tongue All the lonely things my hands have done Let me see your beauty broken down Like you would do for one you love Hungry as an archway Through which the troops have passed I stand in ruins behind you With your winter clothes, your broken sandal straps I love to see you naked over there Especially from the back Oh take this longing from my tongue All the useless things my hands have done Untie for me your hired blue gown Like you would do for one that you love You're faithful to the better man I'm afraid that he left So let me judge your love affair In this very room where I have sentenced mine to death I'll even wear these old laurel leaves That he's shaken from his head Just take this longing from my tongue All the useless things my hands have done Let me see your beauty broken down Like you would do for one you love
F CLike you would do for one you love
