Am G As I sat sadly by her side F G At the window through the glass Am G She stroked a kitten in her lap F G And we watched the world as it fell past Am G Softly she spoke these words to me F G And with brand new eyes, open wide Am G We pressed our faces to the glass F G Am (Fig A) As I sat sadly by her side. Am G She said, 'Father, mother, sister, brother, F G Uncle, aunt, nephew, niece, Am G Soldier, sailor, physician, labourer, F G Actor, scientist, mechanic, priest, Am G Earth and moon and sun and stars F G Planets and comets with tails blazing Am G All are there forever falling F G Am (Fig A) Falling lovely and amazing.' Am G Then she smiled and turned to me F G And waited for me to reply Am G Her hair was falling down her shoulders F G Am (Fig A) As I sat sadly by her side. Am G As I sat sadly by her side F F The kitten she did gently pass Am G Over to me and again we pressed F G Our different faces to the glass Am G 'That may be very well,' I said F G 'But watch that one falling in the street Am G See him gesture to his neighbourS F G See him trampled beneath their feet Am G All outward motion connects to nothing F G For each is concerned with their immediate need Am G Witness the man reaching up from the gutter F G Am (Fig A) See the other one stumbling on who he can not see. Am G With trembling hand I turned toward her F G And pushed the hair out of her eyes Am G The kitten jumped back to her lap F G Am (Fig A) As I sat sadly by her side. Am G Then she drew the curtains down F G And said, 'When will you ever learn Am G That what happens there beyond the glass F G Is simply none of your concern? Am G God has given you but one heart F G You are not a home for the hearts of your brothers Am G And God does not care for your benevolence F G Anymore than he cares for the lack of it in others Am G Nor does he care for those who sit F G At windows in judgement of the world He created Am G While sorrows pile up around him F F Am (Fig A) Ugly, useless and over-inflated. Am G At which she turned her head away F G Great tears leaping from her eyes Am G I could not wipe the smile from my face F G Am (Fig B) As I sat sadly by her side. | / slide up | \ slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | ~ vibrato | + harmonic | x Mute note ===============================================================================
