F E? F#2 G2 B? C? F? INTRO: C E? F C, C E? F F#2 G2 C E? F C B? Am, G F, F E? C
C E? F CWhen the days go drifting backwards
C E? F G and old friends' voices chew the air.
C E? F C B? AmWell, the shells make my ears get seasick -
G F E? C I know the ocean isn't really living there.
C E? F CAnd the pendulum doesn't swing for passion,
C E? F G and even horror can't make those stubborn hands freeze.
C E? F C B? AmBut sometimes just a soft light lit in a bedroom
G F E? C can bring a tired traveller to his knees.
C E? F C E? FShe said, "If you come to me, I'll make it easy.
C E? F C E? F If you come to me, I'll make it easy for you.
Em FSo when you come to me, you can breathe freely.
C G2 FAnd I'll let you stand a while on my side,
C G2 Fstand a while on my side,
C G2 F C C? stand a while on my side of the blues."
F F?
C E? F CWell, praise be to the rolling graveyards,
C E? F G and to the heroes with their necklaces of seaweed.
C E? F C B? AmCinderella's got to be home before midnight
G F E? C so St. Christopher don't ever have to leave.
C E? F CAnd here's a toast to all the furious seasons
C E? F G that went and stole the blood out of baby's cheeks.
C E? F C B? AmThough she was a one who always come so close to smiling,
G F E? C she made crying seem like Christmas Eve.
C E? F C E? FAnd she said, "If you come to me, I'll make it easy.
C E? F C E? F If you come to me, I'll make it easy for you.
Em FSo when you come to me, you can breathe freely.
C G2 FAnd I'll let you stand a while on my side,
C G2 Fstand a while on my side,
C G2 F C C? stand a while on my side of the blues."
F F?
C E? F CWell, a tattooed body wrote himself into a fable,
C E? F G the story of the pine needle and the sheep.
C E? F C B? AmThey found him hibernating beneath the coffee table.
G F E? C It turned out it was actually a human sleep.
C E? F CAnd the trees forgave the fire that went on burning,
C E? F G 'til hope was all it left when the smoke cleared.
C E? F C B? AmI'll forgive her body for deserting
G F E? C as soon as I recall why mine's still here
C E? F C E? FShe said, "If you come to me, I'll make it easy.
C E? F C E? F If you come to me, I'll make it easy for you.
Em FSo when you come to me, you can breathe freely.
C G2 FAnd I'll let you stand a while on my side,
C G2 Fstand a while on my side,
C G2 F C C? stand a while on my side of the blues."
F F?
C E? F CSo the days launch forward leaving memories,
C E? F G dragging swollen clouds across a robin's egg.
C E? F C B? AmLike the beggar, I know I'm bound to get clean eventually
G F if I just keep walking up and down the street.
F E? C Up and the down the street.
