Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Fuse  Jackson Browne

It's [Em]coming from so far away
It's [C]hard to say for [C/D]sure
Whether [G]what I hear is [G/B]music or the [C]wind
Through an open [D]door
There's a f[Em]ire high in the [Eb#5]empty sky
Where the [G/D]sound [C(add9]meets the [G]shore
There's a [G]long distance loneliness
[C]Rolling out over the [G]desert floor  [D]

|Em |Em |C |C |
|Em |Em |C |G |

And the [C]years that I spent lost in the [Bm]mystery
Fall [D#dim]away leaving only the sound of the [Em]drum
Like a [G/F]part of me
It speaks to the heart of me
Forget what life [Em]used to be

You are what you choose to be
It's whatever it [Eb#5]is you see  [D]
That life will be[G]come      [Gmb5(6]

Whatever it is you might [D/F#]think you have
You have nothing to [Em/G]lose        [B7/F#]
Through e[C/G]very dead and living thing
Time [Em]runs like a fuse
And the [G]fuse is   [C]bur[D]ning   [C/E]      [Dsus4/F#]          [G]
And the [G]earth is    [C]tur[D]ning   [C/E]      [D7sus4/F#]           [G]
|Em |Em |C |C |
|Em |Em |C |C |
|Em |Em |C |C |
|Em |Em |C |C |

|Em |Eb#5 |G/D |C(add9) |
|G/B |D/A |F(add9)/G |F(add9)/G |

Though the [C]years give way to un[Bm]certainty
And the [D#dim]fear of living for nothing strangles the [Em]will
There's a [G/F]part of me

That speaks to the heart of me
Though sometimes it's [Em]hard to see
It's never [C]far from me
Alive in et[Eb#5]ernity      [D]
That nothing can [G]kill

[Gmb5(6]   Oh Lord
[D/F#]Are there really people starving [Em/G]still?   [B7/F#]
[C/G]Look out beyond the walls of Babylon
How [Em]long will their needs go unfilled
I want to [G]say right [C]now I'm [D]going to [C/E]be   [D7sus4/F#]a   -    ro[G]und
(backgr. vocals: I'm going to be around)
When the w[G]alls and [C]towe[D]rs are [C/E]crumb[D7sus4/F#]ling       [G]

(backgr. vocals: When the towers are tumbling down)
And I will [G]tune my [C]spi[D]rit to the [C/E]gentl[D7sus4/F#]e         s[G]ound

(backgr. vocals: I want to hear the sound)
Of the [G]waters [C]lap[D]ping on a [C/E]highe[D7sus4/F#]r         g[G]round

(backgr. vocals: Of the children laughing)

|G C D |C/E D7sus4/F# G | (play 4 x)

|Em |Em |C |C | (play 12 x)
