INTRO - Cmaj7 Am7 G Am7 C G
[G]Young and strong Hollywood son
[Am]in the early morning light
this star[C] fell down on [G]Sunset Boulevard
[G]young and strong beautiful one
[Am]we embraced so close
is gon[C]e
was torn a[G]way
let the [D]youth of America mourn
in[C]clude him in their prayers
let h[D]is image linger on
re[C]peat it everywhere
[Cmaj7] [Am7]  
with [Cmaj7]candles, with flowers[Am7]
he was [Cmaj7]one of ou[Am7]rs
[Cmaj7] one of [G]ours
[Am7]why don't you let him be?
he's [C]gone
we know
give his [G]mother and his father peace
your vulture's candor
your casual slander
you [Am]murder his memory
he's [C]gone
we know
it's [G]nothing but a tragedy
[D]lay to rest your soul and body
[C]lay beside your name
[D]lay to rest your rage
your hunger an[C]d amazing grace
with [Cmaj7]candles, with flowers[Am7]
you were[Cmaj7] one of ou[Am7]rs
[Cmaj7] one of [G]ours
I saw [Cmaj7]cameras expose [Am]your life
I heard [Cmaj7]rumors explod[Am7]e with lies
I saw [Cmaj7]children in tears
[Am11]cry and crowd around the sig[D]ht
of where you had col[C]lapsed that day
where your l[D]ast breath and word
had been [C]sighed
where your [D]heart had burst
where you had [C]died
Where you h[D]ad died
Where you had di[C]ed
I saw how they were [D]lost in grieving
all half believing you [C]were gone
Oh the [D]loss and pain of it
crime and shame of it
[C]you were gone
it was such a [D]nightmare raving,
"how could we save him
Repeat and fade
