She Came And She Touched Me

Townes Van Zandt

 CFCGCFCG
She came and she touched me with hands made of heaven 

 EmFC
Reflections sent spinnin' through a face laced in mist.

 FCGCFCG
Now I stand where she left me buried deep 'neath her shadow

 EmFC
And mirror pleads sadly has it all come to this?

 GFGG7
And I wonder, will she call my name?   

 CFCGCFCG
Where the wind careens madly through wide windows paneless 

 EmFC
 Fragrances mingle in a room full of shade

 FCGCFCG
The peons pick partners and waltz 'cross the ceiling 

 EmFC
But the violins whisper, "have I been betrayed?"

 GFGG7
 Tryin' not to look ashamed.      

 CFCGCFCG
Where the drunkards drink deeply from cups full of nothin' 

 EmFC
It's ghost-lover's laugh at the games that they play

 FCGCFCG
While the moments do summersaults into eternity

 EmFC
 Cling to their coat-tails and beg them to stay

 GFGG7
 Sayin', " I got nothin' to hide".      

 CFCGCFCG
Where illusions projected on walls made of tiffany

 EmFC
 Mad minuets to a sad satin song

 FCGCFCG
The harlequin mandolins   harmonize helplessly 

 EmFC
 Hoping that endlessly won't last for long

 GFGG7
 Prayin' that their god ain't died.           

 CFCGCFCG
Then I turn and I see her in a dress made of moonlight 

 EmFC
 Teardrops like diamonds slide slow down her face

 FCGCFCG
And her arms they surround me like chains made of velvet 

 EmFC
And the demons fall faithfully into their place

 GFGG7
And the rivers run with jewels.     

 CFCGCFCG
Now the morning lies open, the night went quite quickly   

 EmFC
 Memory harmlessly fractures and fades

 FCGCFCG
All the poets do push-ups on carpets of rubber foam

 EmFC
 Loudly they laugh at some joke that's been made

 GFGG7
And the wise men speak like fools.
