SWEET LAMENT


Capo 2

(I've kinda changed the chords to this song over time, but this should be accurate 
to the album version.)

C	Em	G	F
C	Em	G	G	G7	G7

C Em G FDo you ever shake, noticing that you are still
C Em G FAwake, that everything around you is
C Em G FReal, I'm really this old, this is how I look and
C Em G FFeel, where'd time go and who am I?
C Em G G G7 G7
C Em G FBut even so, I've tendencies I can't seem to
C Em G FOutgrow, like this overwhelming fear of the dark
C Em G FPlanning conversations I won't
C Em G FStart, I'm terrified of what might be.
C Em G G G7 G7 CHORUS
Am G F GAnd with one lamenting yell, we all retreat within ourselves
Am G C GAnd we say "Oh well, we tried"
F CCould have tried a little harder
F GShould have been a little smarter
Am GBut if God don't have a plan, neither do I.
C Em G F C Em G G G7 G7 We try so hard To make up for all the things we aren't Like the way I yell at the TV Every night while watching Jeopardy Though I won't make a single dime. CHORUS So with one lamenting yell We all retreat within ourselves And we say "My God, how we tried" But God is but a man With a martini in is hand If these stars don't hold my fate Neither do I. BRIDGE
Am GHearts afire aren't happier
F GNo, hearts afire aren't happier
Am G C GThey all fizzle out fast in the end
F CRacing minds aren't happier
F GNo, racing minds aren't happier
Am C G G G7 G7'Cos they're all dead last in the end.
CHORUS So with one lamenting yell We retreat within ourselves And we say "My God, how we tried" But God is but a man With a martini in his hand If love gets to be blind Then so do I. --------------------------------------------------------------------------
