NOTE:
This is such a beautiful song: melancholy and strangely uplifting at the same
time. Recorded on the piano, here it is transcribed for guitar. If you finger-
pick the chords in the basic figure, it sounds quite good but is hard work at 
this tempo. I play barré chords everywhere, but see what you think...
A cool song from one of the great songwriters out there. Enjoy!

VERSE:
Dm Bb C GAnd oh, I've been dumb, I've been perfectly beautiful,
