Drinking Song  Rob Dougan

I want to weave a [Cadd9]musical spell
E7sus4 c(Am) Fmaj7 G(-e)
That leaves you unwell and thinking of me every day
c(-e) Am Dsus4
I want to play you a tune that leaves you marooned and troubled
Each [F]time I'm [G]away
c E E7 Am B
Is there a melody that could lead you to me like a lullabied child that's asleep?
c Am
So for one moment in time, you'd find that you're mine
Fmaj7 G c
And softly I'd kiss you and weep


I want to write a s[Cadd9]imple song
E7sus4 c(Am) Fmaj7 G(-e)
that's so frequently sung that you call me to have the thing banned
c(-e) Am Dsus4
It's charm so endears that whole nations cheer and sigh
When [F]you take my [G]hand
c E E7 Am B
Is there a melody that could lead you to me like a lullabied child that's asleep?
c Am
So for one moment in time you'd find that you're mine
Fmaj7 G c
And softly I'd kiss you and weep


c Am F
'Cause I'm a gambler that just wants to lose
[F]and be allowed to l[Gsus4]eave
c Am F Gsus4
I'm a traveler - with one last mile - my journey is complete
c Am F Gsus4
I'm like a swallow that wants - one long last look - before flying east
c G/b Am G F G c
Last on my list - and then I quit - to kiss your lips and weep


I want to play a [Cadd9]silver note
E7sus4 c(Am)
that fills you with hope
Fmaj7 G(-e)
And tames you to feed from my hand
c(-e) Am
A turquoise chord that invites you to soar
And [Dsus4]fly... to a [F]faraway l[G]and
c E E7 Am B
A symphony that gently leads you - to sit and be still - with me
c G/b
And grief doesn't frighten me
The [Am]sadness try to [G]blind me
F G c
But I'm gonna kiss you and weep


c Am F
'Cause I'm a gambler that just wants to lose
[F]and be allowed to l[Gsus4]eave
c Am F Gsus4
I'm a traveler - with one last mile - my journey is complete
c Am F Gsus4
I'm like a swallow that wants - one long last look - before flying east
c G/b Am G F G c
Last on my list - and then I quit - to kiss your lips and weep

- solo -

c E E7 Am B
Is there a melody that could lead you to me like a lullabied child that's asleep?
c Am
So for one moment in time, you'd find that you're mine
Fmaj7 G c
And softly I'd kiss you and weep

c Am
So for one moment in time, you'd find that you're mine
Fmaj7 G c
And softly I'd kiss you and weep
