Castles in the air  Don McLean













[E]And if she asks you[Emaj7] why
you can [A]tell her that I [E]told you that I'm [F#m7]tired
of [B7]castles in the [E]air, I've got a [F#m7]dream
I [B7]want the world to [E]share and castle [F#m7]walls
just [B7]lead me to des[E]pai[Emaj7]r.[E6] [E]
                [E]Hills of forest gr[Emaj7]een
where the [A]mountains touch [E]the sky a dream come [F#m7]true
I'll [B7]live there till I [E]die, I'm asking [F#m7]you
to [B7]say my last good[E]bye, the love we [F#m7]knew
ain't [B7]worth another [E]try[Emaj7].[E6] [E]
[F#m7]Save me from all the [B7]trouble and the [E]pain
I know I'm w[A]eak but [AG#bass]I can't fa[F#m7]ce that[F#7] girl [B7]again[F#m7] [B7] [F#m7] [B7]
[F#m7]Tell her the reasons [b7]why I can't remai[E]n
Perhaps she'll[A] unde[E]rstan[F#m7]d, if you [F#7]tell it to he[B7]r pla[F#m7]in[B7] [F#m7] [B7]
[E]But how can words ex[Emaj7]press
the feel of [A]sunlight in the [E]morning in the [F#m7]hills,
away [B7]from city str[E]ife, I need [F#m7]a
country [B7]woman for my [E]wife, I'm city [F#m7]born,
but I [B7]love the country [E]lif[Emaj7]e.[E6] [E]
[E]For I can not be [Emaj7]part
of her [A]cocktail gene[E]ration, partners [F#m7]waltz
De[B7]void of all ro[E]mance the music [F#m7]plays
and [B7]everyone must [E]dance I'm bowing [F#m7]out
I [B7]need a second [E]cha[Emaj7]nce.[E6] [E]
[F#m7]Save me from all the [B7]trouble and the [E]pain
I know I'm w[A]eak but [AG#bass]I can't fa[F#m7]ce that[F#7] girl [B7]again[F#m7] [B7] [F#m7] [B7]
[F#m7]Tell her the reasons w[b7]hy I can't remain[E]
Perhaps she'll[A] unde[E]rstan[F#m7]d, if you [F#7]tell it to he[B7]r pla[F#m7]in[B7] [F#m7] [B7]
[E]And if she asks you[Emaj7] why
you can [A]tell her that I [E]told you that I'm [F#m7]tired
of [B7]castles in the [E]air, I've got a [F#m7]dream
I [B7]want the world to [E]share and castle [F#m7]walls
just [B7]lead me to des[E]pai[Emaj7]r.[E6] [E]
