I [Em7]have been trying
To wri[C]te a hai[D]ku for you  [Em7]
Som[C]e things I jus[D]t can’t do
M[Em7]aybe you’re beyond   [C]
Ancient a[D]sian poetry [Em7]
O[C]r maybe i[D]t’s just me
I[Em7] have been trying
To ge[C]t this haiku[D] just rig[Em]ht all nigh[A]t
For you[Em]; alrigh[A]t I’m t[C]hrough
M[Em7]aybe this poem
Was lost[C] in the sauce[D] we spilled  [Em7]
Tha[C]t never go[D]t refilled
I[Em7]’ve never thought much
Of formu[C]laic ver[D]se anyway  [Em7]
An[C]d rhymes are n[D]ot my forte
I[Em7] have been trying
To ge[C]t this haiku[D] just rig[Em]ht all nigh[A]t
For you[Em]; alrigh[A]t I’m t[C]hrough
CHORUS:
F* C* F G C*
I’m trying not to try too hard
F* F G C*
But you’re hard to write down right
F* C* F G C*
So I pen these tried attempts
F* B C**
At haikus for you tonight

Em7 (N.C.)
There, that’s sufficient
I wrot[C]e a haik[D]u for you[Em]
Well I tried[A] at least, and that’s no[Em]t so bad
I’m worki[A]ng here; can tha[D]t be said for you
