[A] There you stood on the e[Em]dge of your feather, [D] expecting to f[E]ly,[E4] [E]
[A] [Em] [D] [E] [A]  
 While I laughed, I wondered whether... I could wave good - bye-----,

[D] [G]  
 Knowing... that you'd gone------!

[Am7] By the summer [D7]it was healing, [G] we had said good - b[C]ye,
[Am7] All the years we'd sp[D7]ent with feeling, [G] ended with a [C]cry,
[Cmaj7]Babe-----, [Gmaj7] ended with a c[C]ry,
[Cmaj7] [Gmaj7] [A] [Asus2] [A] [Asus2]  
 Babe-------, ended with a cry-----! | / / / / |

[A] I tried so h[Em]ard to stand, as I stum[D]bled, and fell to the gr[E]ound, [E4] [E]

 So hard to laugh as I fumbled, and reached for the love I found------,

[Cmaj7]Babe-----, [Gmaj7] now you know I'd t[C]ry,
[Cmaj7] [Gmaj7] [C] [Cmaj7] [G]  
 Babe-----, now you know I'd try, Babe---------!
