CmI found her on the night of fire and noise
GmWild bells rang ina wild sky
CmI knew from that moment on
Gm (riff 1 here)That I would love her till the day that i died
CmAnd I kissed away a thousand tears
GmMy lady of the various sorrows

GmSo I kept some safe for tomorrow
CmOn an endless night silver star spangled

CmShe was given to me to put things right.
GmAnd I stacked all of my accomplishments beside her.
CmYet I feel so obsolete and small
Gm (riff 1 here)I found God and all his devils inside her.
CmIn my bed, she cast the blizzard out.
GmA mock sun blazed upon her head.
Cm (riff 2 here)And so completely filled with light, she was
GmHer shadow fanged and hairy and mad.
CmOur love lines grew hopelessly tangled
C# D DAnd the bells from the chapel went jingle-jangle
Cm Bb GmDo You Love Me? (Do You Love Me?)
Cm Bb GmDo You Love Me? (Do You Love Me?)
Cm Bb GmDo You Love Me? (Do You Love Me?)

Bmtake a little walk to the edge of town, Go across the tracks
Where the viaduct looms, like abird of doom, as it shifts and cracks
EmWhere secrets lie in the border fires ij the humming wires

Past the square, past the bridge, past the mills past the stacks
