First I must give credit to Glen Macon (macon@cbmvax.commodore.com) for
posting the original .crd text. Here is my version of the song (with TABs
for the intro). I have corrected some names of chords, corrected some
chords, but please Glen, this isn't to "flame you", just trying to be
helpful (it's a great song...). Any other ELP TABs or CRDs around,
anyone?

But don't be unkind, it don't mean I'm blind

Am9         Em11

I think of lying in bed, I shouldn't have said

Well maybe I might have changed

C   Cmaj9       F      G                   Dm7
And not been so cruel, not been such a fool

Am9              Em11
But after what's done is done

C Cmaj9      F       G                       Dm7
I just can't recall, it doesn't matter at all

I saw elp play this on tv and noticed the way lake plays the am9 chord. Although subtle, it sounds better than the way most people play it.
