Verse 1
O[D]nce she came in-[C]to my r[D7]oom, fea[Em]thered hat, and a[A]ll,
Wea[Em]ring a warm wool sh[A]awl wrapped a-ro[D]und her sho[A]uld-e[D]rs. [Em]Two eyes like li[A]ghts,
M[Em]ilky marble whi[A]tes looking[Bm7] up at [D]me, lo[Em]oking for a w[A]ay,
Mo[Em]ons in an endless d[A]ay. And a[D]ll I knew was w[C]ith her t[D7]hen,
No, cou[Em]ldn't see the ti[A]me,as we dra[Em]nk down the wi[A]ne to the la[D]st sweet s[A]car-l[D]et
Verse 2
H[E]ow was I to wo[D]nder why, or [F#m]even question th[B]is? Un[F#m]derneath her k[B]iss,
I was [E]so un-gu[D]ard-[E]ed . Ev[A]ery bottle's em[B]pty now, and a[E]ll those dreams are g[C#m]one,
[F#m]Ah, but the so[B]ng goes [Em]on so [A7]ho-[D]ly[C] [Em] [A] [Em] [A]
Verse 3
S[D]he was so much you[C]nger t[D7]hen, w[Em]ild like the w[A]ind, a g[Em]ypsy with a g[A]rin,
From an o[D]ld far away c[A]oun-t[D]ry, but d[Em]eep beneath her cu[A]rls,
Be-ne[Em]ath this misty pe[A]arl, there was m[D]ore to see.[Bm] S[E]he could move mountains
i[D]n the dark, as si[F#m]lent as a kn[B]ife, she [F#m]cut loose a l[B]ife that she ne[E]ver,
No, never really w[D]ant-[E]ed. A[A]ll those days are fr[B]ozen now, and a[E]ll those scars
are g[C#m]one, [F#m]ah, but the s[B]ong carries [Em]on so [A7]ho-l[Em]y[G]
Verse 4
[Em] [G] [C] [Bm] [Em] [D] [Bm] [F#] [F#7] [Bm] [F#] [Bm] [Em] [Bm] [F#] [F#7] [Bm] 
[Em] [Bm] [F#] [B] [Em] [B7] Co[E]me let us dr[D]ink again, be-[F#m]fore the second sh[B]ow,
I [F#m]want you so to k[B]now ,there's no br[E]idge be-t[D]ween [E]us,
A[A]ll those gates have ope[B]ned now, and thr[E]ough the light has s[C#m]hone,
[F#m]ah, but the s[B]ong carries [Em]on so [A7]ho-[D]ly[C] [Em] [A] [Em] [A] [D]
