[G#]   [--]   [445664]                               

[Dm]  As you [C]lie before me [F1]now, like a s[Dm]hadow
On a p[C]ea green sea  [Dm]
Never t[F1]hought that I could find you so h[Dm]ollow
Laying [C]into [Dm]me

[F2]   But this cup of wine  [E]
All salt and brine makes me sle[Am]epy   [G1]
D* F2
A sorrow so
A field of tears,[E] that will never yield a single[Am] penny  [G1]
D* F2
But I don't know
I've got nothing to h[E]old o[Am]n to


[Dm]  Wished for [C]gold so I could [F1]buy you a p[Dm]alace
By the r[C]iverside  [Dm]
You'd c[F1]ome in and I would fill your diamond [Dm]chalice
You were [C]still ali[Dm]ve
[F2]   But this cup of wine  [E]
All salt and brine makes me sle[Am]epy   [G1]
D* F2
A sorrow so
A field of tears,[E] that will never yield a single[Am] penny  [G1]
D* F2
But I don't know
E Am G1 D* F2
I've got nothing to hold on to
I've got nothing to h[E]old o[Am]n to

Were you [F2]sleepless, [G1]tearing at the [Am]air?

[Am]  Did his e[F2]yelids [G1]fix on empty [Am]chairs
You had t[F2]raveled to la[G2]y beside?  [G#]      [Am]
A gentle to[F2]rture to wa[G1]tch it all r[Am]ecede
And all the w[F2]hile your mother [G2]slept be[G#]side [Am]him    [F2]
Oh, [G2]no    [F2]      [C]
[C]  Hand it over (hand it over)

Were you s[F2]leepless, t[G1]earing at the [Am]air?
Was the w[F2]ater eve[G2]rywhere?     [G#]      [Am]
Were you f[F2]earful, and [G1]long to run [Am]away
From the [F2]cold clasp of [G2]Illinois?
