Tower Song  Townes Van Zandt

Capo on the fourth fret to play with the Rear View Mirror version.
This is a beautiful guitar pick that is not too difficult. The timing
is a little tricky hitting the F chord for one beat before the G7. Townes
actually only plays the "F" note (D string third fret above the capo) when
transitioning from the Dm to the G7. Listen to the "Rear View Mirror" version
to hear the pick.
[C]So [Em]close and yet so [Dm]far away[F] [G7]
[G7]And all the things I'd [F]hope to [C]say
[F]Will have to go [Em]unsaid [Am]today
[F]Perhaps until to[G7]morrow
[C]Your [Em]fears have built a [Dm]wall between[F] [G7]
[G7]Our lives and all that [F]loving [C]means
[F]Will have to go un[Em]felt it [Am]seems
[F]Leaving only [G]sorrow
[F]You built your tower [G]strong and [Em]tall
[F]Can't you see it's [G]got to fall [C]someday
You close your eyes and speak to me
Of faith and love and destiny
As distant as eternity
From truth and understanding
The wind blows cold outside your door
It whispers words I've tried before
But you don't hear me anymore
You're pride's just too demanding
The end is coming soon it's plain
A warm bed just ain't worth the pain
And I will go and you'll remain
With bitterness we've tasted
A mother's breast a new born child
A poet's tears a drunken smile
I can't help thinking all the while
Their meaning won't be wasted
