Artist - Tim Buckley
Song - Cripples Cry
Album - This track wasn't released on any of Buckley's studio albums but a version can
found on the bootleg 'Live at the Folklore Center 1967', which is of a January '67
in Greenwich Village.  A studio version was definitely recorded around the time of 
and Hello, and is allegedly sitting in the archives of Herb Cohen, Buckley's then manager.
it'll get a proper release some day (although given that Starsailor and Blue Afternoon 
remain out of print I wouldn't hold your breath!).

The whole song uses the same four chords over and over.  The basic pattern in the
on the root chord seems to be:

Ae-----------------------|B---------------3-------|G-------------3---3-----|D-----------------------|A------0----------------|E-----------------------|
And then I guess pick as suits your style, or listen to the recording to see how it's there. If you have a beautiful voice with a four octave range that will probably add to its performance as well... A D C#m Bm A I know we're through but I still can't really believe that we'd fall A D C#m Bm A And though it's sad I still try to hold back my tears, but still I call A Bm C#m What can I say or do for you? Bm A What would you like me to be? A Bm C#m Shall I laugh, dance or sing for you? Bm A Cripples cry, what can I do? A D C#m Bm Yes I know that you don't want me anymore A D C#m Bm I carry tears, incense and fine wines A What do you do? A D C#m Bm A But please believe that your love will grow with time or with need A D C#m Bm A And though you say that you'll never change your mind, I'll be here D C#m Bm And I'm a torn down child for you A I build my castles in the sky D C#m Bm And I've the colours of a clown A In the teardrops from my eyes A D C#m Bm Yes I know that you don't want me anymore A D C#m Bm I carry tears, incense and fine wines A What do you do? A D C#m I'm on the other side of fear Bm A Through my pain I've learned to love A D C#m And if my actions aren't too clear Bm A remember clowns only cry A D C#m Bm Yes I know that you don't need me anymore A D C#m Bm I carry tears, incense and fine wines A What do you do? A D C#m Your dark secrets torture my mind Bm A Your life of love turns me cold A D C#m And your first lovers you've left behind Bm A Or do you wish to return? A D C#m Bm Oh yes I know that you don't need me anymore A D C#m Bm I carry tears, incense and fine wines A What do you do? A D C#m What can I say or do for you? Bm A What would you like me to be? A Bm C#m Shall I laugh, dance or sing for you? Bm A Cripples cry, what can I do? A D C#m Bm And yes I know that you don't need me anymore A D C#m Bm I carry tears, incense and fine wines A What do you do? ================================================================== NB - I can't be 100% sure on the lyrics cos the bootleg's kind of poor quality. I think mostly right though. ==================================================================
