Broken Arrow  Buffalo Springfield

Buffalo Springfield: Broken Arrow, written by Neil Young
For Intro, see Mr. Soul tab
[G]The lights turned [Bm]on and the cu[Em]rtain fell d[C]own,
[Am]And when it was over it fe[D]lt like a dream,
[Am]They stood at the stage door and b[D]egged for a scream,
[G]The agents had p[G/F#]aid for the bl[Em]ack limousine
That w[C]aited outside in the r[D]ain.
[G]Did you see them,[Gsus]
[G]did you [C]see them?
[F] [Fmaj7] [F6]  
[Dm]Did you see them [G7]in the river?
[Bb]They were there to [Dm]wave to [Em]you.[F] [Em]
[Dm]Could you tell that the e[G7]mpty quivered,
[Bb]Brown skinned In[Dm]dian on the [Em]banks
That were cr[F]owded and na[Em]rrow,
[F]Held a broken[G] arrow?
--Intermission #1--
[G]Eighteen ye[Bm]ars of Amer[Em]ican dr[C]eam,
[Am]He saw that his brother had sw[D]orn on the wall.
He h[Am]ung up his eyelids and r[D]an down the hall,
His mot[G]her had t[G/F#]old him a t[Em]rip was a fall,
And do[C]n't mention babies at [D]all.
[G]Did you see him,[Gsus]
[G]did you s[C]ee him?
[F] [Fmaj7] [F6] [F] [Fmaj7] [F6]  
[Dm]Did you see him [G7]in the river?
[Bb]He was there to [Dm]wave to [Em]you.[F] [Em]
[Dm]Could you tell that the e[G7]mpty quivered,
[Bb]Brown skinned Indi[Dm]an on the ban[Em]ks
That were cro[F]wded and na[Em]rrow,
[F]Held a broken a[G]rrow?
--Intermission #2--
[G]The streets were li[Bm]ned for the w[Em]edding p[C]arade,
[Am]The Queen wore the white gloves, the cou[D]nty of song,
[Am]The black covered caisson her ho[D]rses had drawn
[G]Protected her K[G/F#]ing from the s[Em]un rays of dawn.
They ma[C]rried for peace and were g[D]one.
Did you s[G]ee them, [Gsus]
[G]did you se[C]e them?
[F] [Fmaj7] [F6] [F] [Fmaj7] [F6]  
[Dm]Did you see them i[G7]n the river?
[Bb]They were there to wa[Dm]ve to y[Em]ou. [F] [Em]
[Dm]Could you tell that the [G7]empty quivered,
[Bb]Brown skinned Indi[Dm]an on the ban[Em]ks
That were cr[F]owded and n[Em]arrow,
[F]Held a b[G]roken arrow?
--Jazzy Outro--
