The Forgotten Lake The Handsome Family
Capo 2nd Fret
Come with [G]me to the [D]forgotten l[G]ake,
Where [C]covered wagons and the [G]wings of missing [D]planes,
[Am]Float between blind fish under[Em]neath the velvet waves.
Strange lights [G]fly a[D]cross the rocky [G]beach,
[C]Girls in white nightgowns wander [G]barefoot in their [D]sleep,
And the [Am]vapors of dreams wind in [Em]circles 'round their feet.
[C]Down, [G]down, float them down,
[Am]Let the waters [Em]float them down,
To [G]where they'll re[D]member every[G]thing.
G, D, G, C, G, D, Am, Em,
Golden [G]flash at the [D]corner of your [G]eye,
Those [C]shadows that climb your [G]darkened walls at [D]night,
Am C G D, G
They open a door lit with forgotten light.
In dark [G]water the [D]grey veil falls a[G]way,
We'll [C]see with closed eyes and drift [G]softly in the [D]rain,
Like [Am]dragonflies in love, we'll dance a[Em]cross the silver waves.
[C]Down, [G]down, float us down,
[Am]Let the waters [Em]float us down,
To [G]where we'll re[D]member every[G]thing.
