She Came and She Touched Me  Townes Van Zandt

capo at 4th. fret
She c[C]ame and she [F]touched [C]me w[G]ith [C]hands made of [F]hea[C]ven[G]
Refl[Em]ections sent sp[F]innin' through a face laced in m[C]ist.
Now I stand where she [F]left [C]me bu[G]ried [C]deep 'neath her [F]sh[C]ad[G]ow
And m[Em]irror pleads s[F]adly has it all come to t[C]his?
And I [G]wonder, will she [F]call my n[G]ame?[G7]
Where the w[C]ind careens [F]mad[C]ly t[G]hrough [C]wide windows [F]panel[C]ess[G]
[Em]Fragrances m[F]ingle in a room full of [C]shade
The peons pick [F]partn[C]ers [G]and w[C]altz 'cross the [F]cei[C]ling[G]
But the v[Em]iolins w[F]hisper, "have I been betr[C]ayed?"
[G]Tryin' not to l[F]ook as[G]hamed.[G7]
Where the d[C]runkards drink [F]dee[C]ply [G]from [C]cups full of no[F]th[C]in'[G]
It's [Em]ghost-lover's l[F]augh at the games that they [C]play
While the moments do [F]summ[C]ers[G]aults [C]into et[F]er[C]ni[G]ty
[Em]Cling to their c[F]oat-tails and beg them to s[C]tay
[G]Sayin', " I got n[F]othin' to h[G]ide".[G7]
Where i[C]llusions proj[F]ect[C]ed [G]on w[C]alls made of t[F]if[C]fa[G]ny
[Em]Mad minu[F]ets to a sad satin s[C]ong
The harlequin m[F]and[C]ol[G]ins [C]harmonize h[F]elple[C]ssly[G]
[Em]Hoping that e[F]ndlessly won't last for [C]long
[G]Prayin' that their g[F]od ain't d[G]ied.[G7]
Then I t[C]urn and I s[F]ee [C]her [G]in a dr[C]ess made of [F]moonl[C]ight[G]
[Em]Teardrops like d[F]iamonds slide slow down her f[C]ace
And her arms they surr[F]ound [C]me l[G]ike c[C]hains made of [F]vel[C]vet[G]
And the [Em]demons fall f[F]aithfully into their p[C]lace
And the r[G]ivers [F]run with j[G]ewels.[G7]
Now the m[C]orning lies [F]ope[C]n, t[G]he n[C]ight went quite [F]quick[C]ly [G]
[Em]Memory ha[F]rmlessly fractures and f[C]ades
All the poets do p[F]ush-[C]ups [G]on c[C]arpets of [F]rubb[C]er f[G]oam
[Em]Loudly they l[F]augh at some joke that's been m[C]ade
And the w[G]ise men s[F]peak like [G]fools.[G7]
