 Helpless : Unplugged

 C G F    x6

 C          G               F     
 There is a town in north Ontario,

 C          G                 F     
 With dream comfort memory to spare,

 C         G            F                  
 And in my mind I still need a place to go,

 C      G            F     
 All my changes were there,

 Blue, blue windows behind the stars,
 Yellow moon on the rise,
 Big birds flying across the sky,
 Throwing shadows on our eyes. Leave us...
 C         G             F   
 Helpless, helpless, helpless

 C    G               F   
 Baby can you hear me now?

 C              G                F              
 The chains are locked and tied across the door,

 C     G                F   
 Baby, sing with me somehow.

 C G F  x4

 Blue, blue windows behind the stars,
 Yellow moon on the rise,
 Big birds flying across the sky,
 Throwing shadows on our eyes. leave us...

 Helpless, helpless, helpless x2

 C G F   x2

 Helpless, helpless, helpless
