[D]Time the greens (?) and [Am]pick up screams a[F]lone above the [G]square,
[Bb]Who[C]a, sing [Bb]softly[F]
[D]Above the trees where [Am]Billy breathes we [F]float upon the [G]air,
[Bb]Who[C]a, [Eb]whoa [Bb](whoa)
[F]Softly [Dmi7]sing sweet [C]son[Bb]gs, [F]Softly [Dmi7]sing sweet [Eb]son[Bb]gs,
[F]Softly [Dmi7]sing sweet [C]son[Bb]gs_[Am]___[Gm]__, [Bb]ooooo[Am]ooh[D]
[D]Silent scenes, e[Am]motion beams, I'll [F]wake you when we're [G]there,
[Bb]Who[C]a, sing [Bb]softly[F]
[D]Time it seems in [Am]broken dreams to [F]sleep beside the [G]stair,
[Bb]Who[C]a, [Eb]whoa ([Bb]whoa)
[F]Softly [Dmi7]sing sweet [C]son[Bb]gs, [F]Softly [Dmi7]sing sweet [Eb]son[Bb]gs,
[F]Softly [Dmi7]sing sweet [C]son[Bb]gs_[Am]___[Gm]__, [C]ooooo[Bb]ooh
The theremin (or whatever it is) solo goes something like this:
[Eb] [Bb] [F] [Cm] [Ab] [Bb] [Db] [Eb]  
[Gb] [Db] [Ab] [Cm] [Ab] [Bb] [Db] [Eb]  
Then the chorus again:
[F]Softly [Dmi7]sing sweet [C]son[Bb]gs, [F]Softly [Dmi7]sing sweet [Eb]son[Bb]gs,
[F]Softly [Dmi7]sing sweet [C]son[Bb]gs, [F]Softly [Dmi7]sing sweet [Eb]son[Bb]gs,
F Dmi7 C Bb Am Gm C Bb Eb F D (loud)
Softly sing sweet songs______, oooooooh
Someone else figure out the guitar solo! I'm not sure I have the lyrics right here,
but the chords sound pretty good...
