Salad Days

Procol Harum

Verse 1:

        You come to me at midnight, and say its dark in here
        You know you robbed me of my sight, and light is what I fear
        I tell you that I can not see, but you persist in showing me
        Those bangles that I paid for long ago


        And though my face is smiling
        I'm really feeling low
        Though you say you're with me
        I know that it's not so

 4: 2X
        G         A         G        D         
Verse 2:

Your skin crawls up an octave, your teeth have lost their gleam
The peach has snuggled closer down into the clotted cream
And for some unknown reason my watch begins to chime
        And though I beg and plead with you, you tell me its not time

 repeat cborus

Instrumental break:

 organ solo - cbords as per verse 2 and cborus

 cbords as per verse 2
Verse 3 :

The sun seeps through the window to see if we're still dead
To try to throw some light upon the gloom around our bed
At quarter past the doorbell rings, the water faucet drips and sings
And still my reason will not rhyme, and still you tell me its not time

 repeat cborus

 repeat intro; end cold on D
