I'm still quite a novice, but from what I have studied and from the people I have played with, it is worth posting what I believe to be is the chord layout for C/G and for Dm/F; you will find that these chords are easily cheated.

C/G 330010 and Dm/F xx3213

Yeh and if you are a beginner you can play c or dm respectively and it still sounds ok. i recommend that if you want to play the song perfectly though then use the proper chords.

great song, simple tab but thanks for putting it up! i love playing this song.

Am7 C G D
Helplessly hoping her harlequin hovers near-by, awaiting a word.

Am7 C G D
Gasping at glimpses of gentle true spirit he runs wishing he could fly

Am7 C G D
only to trip at the sound of good-bye...

Am7 C G
Wordlessly watching he waits by the window and wonders at the empty
place in-side

Am7 C G
Heartlessly helping him-self to her bad dreams he worries did he hear
D Am7 C G C/G
a goodbye or even... hel-lo?


They are one person, they are two a-lone, they are three to-gether, they
G Dm/F C
are for... each other

Am7 C G
Stand by the starway you'll see something certain to tell you confusion
has its cost.

Am7 C G D
Love isn't lying it's loose in a lady who lingers, saying she is lost and
Am7 C C/G
choking... on hel-lo.
