I see my Marianne walking away.
So many people have come and gone,
Their faces fade as the years go by;
Yet I still recall as I wonder on, as clear as the sun
In the summer sky.

When I'm tired I'm thinking cold,
I hide in my music, forget the day and
Dream of a girl I used to know
I closed my eyes and she slipped away. She slipped away

Notes:
For the chorus bar chords sound nice on an acoustic, power chords sound
better on electrics.
The chord changes for the solo are as follows:
[/D]wit[G]h [/A]/ [G] [/D]/ r[G]ep[/D]res[A]en[/D]tin[G]g [/Bm]1 me[A]as[/D]ure[Bm].[/Em] [A] [/G] [/] [DF#] [D/]

Additional Notes by Oliver K. Reichl:
There are at least five "guitars" in this tune. The electric is
definitely some sort of Les Paul (of vintage stock with Scholzian
modifications, no doubt).
Guitar #1: 12-string acoustic
Guitar #2: 6-string electric (rhythm, power chords)
Guitar #3: 6-string electric (leads-melody)
