Townes Van Zandt


        It's plain to see the sun won't shine today.
        But I ain't in the mood for sunshine anyway.
        Maybe I'll go insane, I've got to stop the pain.
        Maybe I'll go down and see Kathleen.

(Em)Plain too see the sun won't shine (Am)today
(Em)But I ain't in the mood for sunshine (Am)anyway
(H7)Maybe I'll go (Am)insane
(C)I got to (G)stop the (Em)pain
(Am)Maybe I go (Em)down to (D)see (Em)Kathleen
(Hm)There's crystal cross (Am)sand and the (C)waves
they (G)take my (Em)hand
(Am)soon I'm gonna (Em)see my (D)sweet (Em)Kathleen

The swallow comes to tell me of her dreams.
She says she'd like to know just what they mean.
I feel like I could die as I watch her flyin' by.
Ride the North wind down to see Kathleen.

The stars hang high above the oceans roar.
The moon has come to lead me to her door.
There's crystal cross the sand, the waves they take my hand.
Soon I'm gonna see my sweet Kathleen.
Soon I'm gonna see my sweet Kathleen.

Dm F Gm
