After Eliot  Johnny Flynn

Intro: E B7 x4
Verse 1:
We [E]shared the [F#m]experience of [A]being [E]alive
And then we [F#m]took some [A]tea
[E]We finished [F#m]up and [A]all on a [E]whim
We talked as [F#m]it was [A]free
[B]When we went to [A]get the bill
The [E]lady looked us [B]over
[B]She told us, 'now you [A]stay quite still
And I'll [E]fetch in some [B]clover'
Pre-chorus:
[C#m]And all of the [B]yellow [A]melancho[C#m]ly
The world [B]about grew [A]stark
The [C#m]only [B]sound in [A]all of the [C#m]place
Was the singing [B]of a [A]lark[(A-B-A)]
Chorus:
It sang [C#m]Holly go [B]lightly [A]bright as the [E]day
[C#m]Fresh as the [B]moon and [A]stale as the hay
[C#m]Cold as the [B]window [A]frozen with [E]frost
[C#m]You never been [B]seen and you [A]neve[(A-B-A)]r been lost
E B7 x2
Verse 2:
[E]And lost I [F#m]was for [A]all of the [E]time
We never [F#m]shared there[A]after
[E]Closing my [F#m]books and [A]shoeing my [E]feet
[E]The air blew [F#m]in much [A]darker
[B]Floor boards they've been [A]laughing at me
The [E]folds of my skin are [B]frayed
I'm the oldest man I [A]know by now
I was the [E]youngest yester[B]day
Pre-chorus:
[C#m]What did I [B]lose to [A]mourn so [C#m]long
A worm in the [B]heart has [A]tamed me
[C#m]Laying to [B]rest in a [A]ventr[C#m]icle
Stirs when I [B]take my [A]tea[(A-B-A)]
Chorus:
It sang[C#m] Holly go[B] lightly[A] bright as the[E] day
[C#m]Fresh as the [B]moon and [A]stale as the hay
[C#m]Cold as the [B]window [A]frozen with [E]frost
[C#m]You never been [B]seen and you [A]neve[(A-B-A)]r been lost
E B7 x4
Verse 3:
[E]I saw her [F#m]once and she [A]came upon the [E]midday
And gave me [F#m]both her [A]hands
[E]It seemed while [F#m]I was still [A]dreaming of the [E]waves
That she lived a [F#m]while on [A]land
[B]Slipping through a [A]stream of dark
The [E]streets laid out a [B]way
[B]Stayed above the [A]level
Kept my [E]wandering heart at [B]bay
Pre-chorus:
[C#m]In the sage strands a [B]feeling in the [A]landlord's daily [C#m]dealing
There's a turn of a [B]twisting [A]smile
[C#m]Cheap is your [B]time when our [A]tea don't taste so [C#m]fine
How are you, it's [B]been a [A]while[(A-B-A)]
Chorus:
It sang [C#m]Holly go [B]lightly [A]bright as the [E]day
[C#m]Fresh as the [B]moon and [A]stale as the hay
[C#m]Cold as the [B]window [A]frozen with [E]frost
[C#m]You never been [B]seen and you [A]never been [E]lost X2
