On A Tuesday In Amsterdam Long Ago  Counting Crows

[Am]   A picture of [Em]Amsterdam,
[Dm]   Bare trees under g[C]lass,     [G]
[Am]   Framed in the [Em]grey and white, afternoon [Dm]light,
   Of a winter long [C]past,    [G]

Verse 2:

[Am]   when I was a [Em]riser,
[Dm]   through Dublin I [C]roamed,  [G]
[Am]   She was a [Em]bare back r[Dm]ider,
   Some [C]miles from h[G]ome,

Chorus 1:

[Am]   come back to m[Em]e,
[Bb]   come back to [F]me,  [C]
[Am]   come back to m[Em]e,
[Bb]   come back to [F]me   [C]

Verse 3:

[Am]   She's a carnival [Em]diver,
[Dm]   Tongue in the [C]sky,  [G]
[Am]   Cutting through [Em]time like a memory,
[Dm]   Strung on a [C]wire,  [G]

Verse 4:

[Am]   The colour of [Em]anything,
[Dm]   Fades in the [C]air,  [G]
[Am]   She is the [Em]film of the book,
   Of the [Dm]story of the smell of her hair

Chorus 2:

[Am]   come back to m[Em]e,
[Bb]   come back to [F]me,  [C]
[Am]   come back to m[Em]e,

[Dm]   [-]  [G]                                
Verse 5:
[Am]   When every thing's [Em]over,
[Dm]   Everything' s clea[C]r, [G]
[Am]   Everyone's  [Em]   older,  [Dm]
No one is [C]here,    [G]

Verse 6:

[Am]   I try to re[Em]member,
[Dm]   A girl on a [C]wire, [G]
[Am]   She's tumbling and [Em]diving,
Above Stephenson's [Dm]green,
like a kite on the [C]air, [G]

Outro Chorus:

[Bb]   come back to [F]me,  [C]
