Stringman

Neil Young

     x4

 F
 You can say the soul is gone
 Dm/G
And the feelings just not there
 BbCFCBbC
 Not like it was so long ago    
 F
On the empty page before you
 Dm/G
You can fill in what you care
 BbCFCBbC
 Try to make it good before you go    

Take the simple case of the sarge
Who wouldn't go back to war
Because the hippies tore down every -
Thing that he was fighting for
Or the lovers on the blanket
The city turned to whores
With memories of green kissed by the sun

You can say the soul is gone
And close another page
Just be sure that yours is not the one

 FCBbC

 BbF
And I'm singing for the stringman
 BbF
Who lately lost his wife
 BbDm
There is no dearer friend of mine
 CF
That I know in this life

On his shoulder is a violin
For his head where chaos reigns
But his heart can't find a simple way
To live with all those things

 FCBbC
All those things    
 FCBbC
He's a stringman    
 FCBbC
stringman    
 FCBbC
 F
All those strings to pull

 FCBbC
     x4
