IF I'D ONLY COME AND GONE - Written by Shel Silverstein


First Verse


                     Bb
If I'd only come and gone
Bb                            C              F
The way I've always done with summer girls before
F          Bb                 C                 F
Shared one night with you and never reached for more
F       C                                   C
Then we wouldn't face this long and painful righting of the wrong

If I'd just come and gone


Second Verse


                      Bb
If I hadn't stayed so long
Bb                         C                  F
And merely parked my dusty boots outside your door
F          Bb                     C                 F
Tracked no footprints 'cross your polished hardwood floor
F           C                                C
If I'd have left you in your doorway smilin' drowsy at the dawn
            F
If I'd just come and gone


Third Verse


F           Bb                        F
Then I'd be on a shinin' silver plane dippin' into Denver
F    Bb                                 F
Or a schooner blowin' down The Biscayne Bay
F        Bb             C             F
You'd be safely tucked away among the pleasure I'd remember

'Stead of lyin' here beside me fearin' restless thoughts inside me

That might awaken with the breakin' of each new day


Fourth Verse


                         Bb
If you'd only stopped to read
Bb                          C             F
Cold hard words I carved on other bedroom walls
F             Bb             C                 F
And heard the mornin' coffee truths I told 'em all
F            C
I'd still be on your lips like some unfinished half-remembered song

You'd never have loved me if I'd just come and gone


Outro


            F
If I'd just come and gone
F                    Bb
If I'd only come and gone
Bb                   C
If I'd only come and gone
C                    F
If I'd only come and gone...


CARRY ME, CARRY - Written by Shel Silverstein


Intro


D G D Dsus4


First Verse


D
Second Street and Broadway,
G
sitting in a door way;
D                     Dsus4 D
head held in his hands
E                 E7                A
Looked to all the world like he was praying


Second Verse


D
Foot wrapped in an old rag,
G
bottle in a brown bag;
D                     Dsus4 D
I saw him try to stand
E                E7                A
Then I heard the words that he was saying, yeah


Chorus


        D               G                 D
He said come on Carrie, carry me a little farther
                                  A
Come on Carrie, carry me one more mile
  D
I don't know where it's leading to,
      G                       E
but I know I can make it if I lean on you
   D               G
So come on Carrie, carry me a little
D                  G
I carried you, now carry me a little
D               G                 D
Come on Carrie, carry me a little while


Third Verse


         D
Well, he struggled to his feet,
    G
and staggered down the street;
       D                          Dsus4 D
to the window of the five-and-dime
   E         E7                       A
He stood and laughed a while at his reflection


Fourth Verse


    D
And then I heard him shoutin',
G
something about a mountain;
D                         E                     E7            
    A
he could surely climb, if she was only there to point the right direction

But she ain't no, no she ain't no


Chorus


        D               G                 D
He said come on Carrie, carry me a little farther
                                  A
Come on Carrie, carry me one more mile
  D
I don't know where it's leading to,
      G                       E
but I know I can make it if I lean on you
   D               G
So come on Carrie, carry me a little
D                  G
I carried you, now carry me a little
D               G                 D
Come on Carrie, carry me a little while, yeah


Outro


      G         D         G         D
Carry me, carry me, carry me, carry me...


THE THINGS I DIDN'T SAY - Written by Shel Silverstein


First Verse


G                                     C                G
I didn't say, "Don't do it babe" when she packed up to go
G D                                                     G
I didn't say "Come back here honey and try with me once more"
G                                                       C
And when she asked me if I loved her, I just turned away
C     D                                C               G
She's gone and now I'm hearing all the things I didn't say


Chorus


                  D                  C
I didn't say "I'm sorry babe, 'cause half the fault was mine"
              D                                        C               
   G
I didn't say "We'll work it out, 'cause all we need is love and faith and time"
G                                                            C
I said "If that's the way you want it, I won't stand in your way"
C     D                                                G
She's gone and now I'm hearing all the things I didn't say


Second Verse


G                                C                  G
I didn't take her in my arms and kiss away her tears
G D                                                        G
I didn't say "My life don't mean a thing if you ain't here"
G                                                  C
I thought of all the many games I'd be free to play
C   D
But all I do is listen to the things I didn't say


Third Verse
                   D                             C                G
I didn't say "Take off your coat, I'll make some coffee and we'll talk"
              D                                C              G
I didn't say "The motorway, is such a long and lonely endless walk"
G                                                                   C
I said "Goodbye, good luck and God bless you", then she slipped away
C   D                                                    G
And left me here to live with all the things I didn't say


Outro


G   D
And now I guess she'll never hear the things I didn't say...

  G    = A
  Dsus = Esus


First Verse


This is the last morning, that I wake up in this dirty city,

looking for the sunshine, as the buildings block the skies

This is the last morning, that I wash in rusty water,

trying to shave a face, that I don't even recognize

D
Down the hallway rats are skittering, I can smell the garbage rotting;
                                 G
hear the children crying, in an apartment, down below
            A7
This is the last morning, that I'm gonna have to listen to it,
          D     Dsus D
I'm going home, yeah

            D
This is the last morning, that I try to breath the heavy air,
                                     A                    A7
fight the crowds, avoid the traffic, watch the world turn grey

This is the last morning, that I drink my coffee standing up,
                                       D
smile and speak to strangers, who just turn and walk away

          D
This is a tough cold city here, and I'll guess I'll never cut it here
                                     D
And I'm so tired of trying to stand against it, all alone
            A7
This is the last morning, that I'm gonna have to fight it,
          D     Dsus D
I'm going home, yeah

            D
This is the last morning that I wear these greasy overalls,
                                      A
punch the clock, and do just what I'm told, to get along
             A7
And face the long evening, laying close beside my radio,
                             D                       Dsus D
imagining the kisses, of the girl that sings the song

D
Down below the subway's screaming, as I lay here halfway dreaming
                                  G                     D
Looking at the ceiling, wondering where, the dream went wrong (where, where)
            A7
This is the last morning, that I'm gonna have to think about it,

          D     Dsus D
I'm going home, yeah

          D   Dsus E       D  Dsus D
       D  Dsus D
I'm going home,  I'm going home,  I'm going home . . . .

I CAN'T TOUCH THE SUN - Written by Shel Silverstein


First Verse


E
I can't touch the clouds for you,
E                    B
I'll never reach the Sun for you.
B
I've never done the things
B             E
That you need done for you.
E
I've streached as high as I can reach
E                   A
I guess I'm not the one for you;
A      B                                     E
'Cause I can't reach the clouds or touch the sun for you,
E  B                                     E
No I can't reach the clouds or touch the sun.


Second Verse


E
I can't turn back time for you,
E                     B
And make you sweet sixteen again,
B
And I can't turn your barren fields
B  E
To green again.
E
And I won't sit around and talk
E                        A
Of how things might have been again,
A  B                                   E
No I can't turn back time and make you young again.
B                                   E
I can't turn back time and make you young.


Third Verse


E B
I hope you find somebody who
B   A               E
Can do the things I didn't do
E   A             E
And find a road I didn't find
E   B                E
And build a brighter world for you.
E B
I hope you find somebody bold
B         A         E
Enough to reach and take a hold
E   A               E
And guide your ever changing mind
E   A              B
And free your ever rising soul.
B     A          B
But I can't. No, I can't.


Fourth verse


E
I can't look inside your mind

And see the things you're hoping for.

And I can't help you chase the dream

You're groping for.

You say your arms are open wide,

But lord knows who they're open for.

I can't know your mind or chase your dreams with you.

No, I can't chase your dreams or know your mind.


Fifth Verse


F#
So say goodbye, and don't look back
F#                  C#
I've had some happy days with you,
C#                           F#
Sorry I can't be the one who stays with you.
F#
And when they ask about me,
F#                    B
You can say I was the one with you;
B   C#                                      F#
Who never touched the clouds or reached the sun with you.
F#  C#                                    E
No, I can't reach the clouds or touch the sun.


Outro


F# B          C#
I  guess it's done,
C#                F#                     C#
I can't touch the sun for you. Ooh, Ooh, Ooh!

She's the queen of the silver dollar,
G#          C#            G#
And she rules this smokey kingdom.
G#              C#   G#
And her scepter is a wine glass,
G#              D#
And the bar stool is her throne.

And see which one will take the queen of the silver dollar home.


First Verse


G#
She arrives in all her splendor,
G#    C#
Every night at nine o'clock.
C#      D#
And her chariot is the crosstown bus,
D#                        G#
That stops right down the block.
G#
Then the old piano minstrel,
G#        C#
Plays her song as she walks in,
C#      D#
And the queen of the silver dollar,
D#          G#
She's home again.


Chorus

          G#           C#     G#

And see which one will take the queen of the silver dollar home.


Second Verse


G#
Her royal gown is a satin dress,
G#     C#
That's stained and slightly torn.
C#     D#
And her sparklin' jewels are rhinestones,
D#                            G#
And her shoes are scuffed and worn.
G#
From the many roads she's traveled,
G#      C#
And the wondrous sites she's seen.
C#    D#
And I watch her and I pray,
D#           G#
God save the queen.

    D#     G#
And see which one will take the queen of the silver dollar home.


Third Verse

The queen of the silver dollar,
Is not as haughty as she seems.
She was once an ordinary girl,
With ordinary dreams.
But I found her and I won her,
And I brought her to this world.
Yes, I'm the man who made a queen,
Of a simple country girl.


Chorus


              G#           C#     G#
Now she's the queen of the silver dollar,
G#          C#            G#

G#      C#           G#
And fight to win her favors
G#              C#        G#        C#       G#
