For Absent Friends  Genesis

For Absent Friends - Genesis
Intro: |A(picked note) D/A |Em D A|
[D]Sunday at [D/C#]six when they [D/C]close both the gates
[D]A [Em]wi [D]dowed [Em]pair
[D]Still [Em]sit[D]ting [A7]there,
[G]Wonder [Em]if theyre [A]late for [D]church
And its [D/C#]cold, so they [D/C]fasten their coats
[D]And [Em]cross [D]the [Em]grass, [D]theyre [Em]al [D]ways [A7]last.
[C]Passing by the padlocked swings,
The [F#sus4]roundab[F#]out still turning,
A[B7]head they see a small girl
On her [E7]way home with a [A7sus4]pram.
Repeat Intro
[D]Inside the [D/C#]archway,
The [D/C]priest greets them with [D]a [Em]court[D]eous [Em]nod.
[D]Hes [Em]close [D]to [A7]god.
[G]Looking [Em]back at [A]days of [D]four instead of [D/C#]two.
[D/C]Years seem so few (four instead of two).
[D]Heads [Em]bent [D]in [Em]prayer
[D]For [Em]friends [D]not [A7]there.
[C]Leaving twopence on the plate,
They [F#sus4]hurry d[F#]own the [F#sus4] path [F#] and through the [B7]gate
And wait to board the bus
That [E7]ambles down the [A7sus4]street.
Outro: Same as intro, ends on strummed D.
