Castles in the air

Don McLean



 EEmaj7
 And if she asks you why
 AEF#m7
you can tell her that I told you that I'm tired
 B7EF#m7
of castles in the air, I've got a dream
 B7EF#m7
want the world to share and castle walls
 B7EEmaj7E6E
just lead me to despair. 
 EEmaj7
                Hills of forest green
 AEF#m7
where the mountains touch the sky a dream come true
 B7EF#m7
I'll live there till I die, I'm asking you
 B7EF#m7
to say my last goodbye, the love we knew
 B7EEmaj7E6E
ain't worth another try. 
 F#m7B7E
 Save me from all the trouble and the pain
 AAG#bassF#m7F#7B7F#m7B7F#m7B7
I know I'm weak but I can't face that girl again   
 F#m7b7E
 Tell her the reasons why I can't remain
 AEF#m7F#7B7F#m7B7F#m7B7
Perhaps she'll understand, if you tell it to her plain  
 EEmaj7
 But how can words express
 AEF#m7
the feel of sunlight in the morning in the hills,
 B7EF#m7
away from city strife, I need a
 B7EF#m7
country woman for my wife, I'm city born,
 B7EEmaj7E6E
but I love the country life. 
 EEmaj7
 For I can not be part
 AEF#m7
of her cocktail generation, partners waltz
 B7EF#m7
Devoid of all romance the music plays
 B7EF#m7
and everyone must dance I'm bowing out
 B7EEmaj7E6E
need a second chance. 
 F#m7B7E
 Save me from all the trouble and the pain
 AAG#bassF#m7F#7B7F#m7B7F#m7B7
I know I'm weak but I can't face that girl again   
 F#m7b7E
 Tell her the reasons why I can't remain
 AEF#m7F#7B7F#m7B7F#m7B7
Perhaps she'll understand, if you tell it to her plain  
 EEmaj7
 And if she asks you why
 AEF#m7
you can tell her that I told you that I'm tired
 B7EF#m7
of castles in the air, I've got a dream
 B7EF#m7
want the world to share and castle walls
 B7EEmaj7E6E
just lead me to despair.
