Update 25:10. 13:00. Site is back up running again. Songbooks are recovered. Woring on getting search back up..

Augustine  Patrick Wolf

READ THIS: This song is difficult to play, and I've tried my best to point out the
little things (such as when sections change), but you will have to listen to the song to know
where and when to switch chords, and how to play the song regarding force and such, as
all those things were too hard for me to write out in a way that you would understand.
This is made completely by ear, and is played on the piano but works just as well on any
other instrument (e.g. guitar). I found that none of the other interpretations on this
site did the original justice, so here's to this beautiful, beautiful song.
If you would like me to take out any other song Patrick has made, I would be glad to.
Message me, and I'll see what I can do!

[Cm] [Fm] [Db]  
[Cm] [Fm] [Db]  
[Fm] [Eb] [Db]  
[Cm] [Fm] [Db]  
[Cm]As [Fm]the[Db] bell tower blocks the summer light
[Cm]All[Fm] th[Db]e seeds in our garden fight
[Fm]To [Eb]bre[Db]ak and blossom, all to be adored
[Cm]And[Fm] lo[Db]ok, your skirt is torn
[Db]And there's blood on our sheets
[Cm]As [Fm]com[Db]es the long arm of the law
[Cm]Fis[Fm]t t[Db]ight, banging on the door
[Fm]And[Eb] kn[Db]ocking me down
(Slower, and stroke the last chord and then mute it just before entering the second half
of the verse)
[Cm]On [Fm]its[Db] way in
[Cm]As [Fm]I p[Db]ass out into a dream
[Cm]Of [Fm]who[Db]oping cranes and wooden beams
[Fm]Gre[Eb]at [Db]white wings beating
[Cm]In [Fm]an [Db]attic, in a house, in the dead of night
[Db]Oh,[Eb] my
[Fm]Aug[Cm]ust[Db]ine[Fm], A[Cm]ugu[Db]stine
[Db]Oh,[Eb] is this
[Fm]For[Cm]eve[Db]r, [Fm]eve[Cm]r?[Db]
[Db]Oh,[Eb] oh my sweet
[Fm]Aug[Cm]ust[Db]ine[Fm], A[Cm]ugu[Db]stine
[Db]Wha[Eb]t does this mean
(This part goes into the verse)
[Cm]for[Fm] us[Db]?[Cm] [Fm] [Db]
[Cm]Doe[Fm]s i[Db]t mean that I can never change my ways?
[Cm]And[Fm] th[Db]at's why, love, you shouldn't stay
[Fm]Sti[Eb]ll [Db]you will and love me
[Cm]Lik[Fm]e a[Db] mother or a maid bringing you
[Cm]dow[Fm]n, [Db]down, down on your brazen knees
[Cm]Wat[Fm]eri[Db]ng the worms and the weeds
[Fm]Thi[Eb]nki[Db]ng, why does love leave me
[Cm]So [Fm]dam[Db]n cold? Now I'm getting old
[Db]And is this what it should be?
Well, is it?
[Db]Oh,[Eb] my
[Fm]Aug[Cm]ust[Db]ine[Fm], A[Cm]ugu[Db]stine
[Db]Oh,[Eb] is this
[Fm]For[Cm]eve[Db]r, [Fm]eve[Cm]r?[Db]
[Db]Oh,[Eb] oh my sweet
[Fm]Aug[Cm]ust[Db]ine[Fm], A[Cm]ugu[Db]stine
(This part goes into the bridge)
[Db]Or [Eb]do we kill this one tonight?
[Ab] [Eb/G] [Ab] [Eb/G]  
[Cm]And[Fm] no[Db]w come the tears, heavy and hot
[Cm]As [Fm]it [Db]comes clear, this is all we got
[Fm]As [Eb]I h[Db]old you to my bed like a
[Cm]Can[Fm]cer[Db], or a curse, now be my
[Db]Loving nurse, as we fall back
[Db]Int[Eb]o t[Fm]he impossible dream
