INTRO - Cmaj7 Am7 G Am7 C G
GYoung and strong Hollywood son
Amin the early morning light
C Gthis star fell down on Sunset Boulevard
Gyoung and strong beautiful one
Amwe embraced so close
Cis gone
Gwas torn away
Dlet the youth of America mourn
Cinclude him in their prayers
Dlet his image linger on
Crepeat it everywhere
Cmaj7 Am7
Cmaj7 Am7with candles, with flowers
Cmaj7 Am7he was one of ours
Cmaj7 G one of ours
Am7why don't you let him be?
Che's gone
we know
Ggive his mother and his father peace
your vulture's candor your casual slander
Amyou murder his memory
Che's gone
we know
Git's nothing but a tragedy
Dlay to rest your soul and body
Clay beside your name
Dlay to rest your rage
Cyour hunger and amazing grace
Cmaj7 Am7with candles, with flowers
Cmaj7 Am7you were one of ours
Cmaj7 G one of ours
Cmaj7 AmI saw cameras expose your life
Cmaj7 Am7I heard rumors explode with lies
Cmaj7I saw children in tears
Am11 Dcry and crowd around the sight
Cof where you had collapsed that day
Dwhere your last breath and word
Chad been sighed
Dwhere your heart had burst
Cwhere you had died
DWhere you had died
CWhere you had died
DI saw how they were lost in grieving
Call half believing you were gone
DOh the loss and pain of it
crime and shame of it
Cyou were gone
Dit was such a nightmare raving,
"how could we save him
Cfrom himself?"
Repeat and fade
