John Hiatt / Overcoats 1975

D           /C        /B
You are the beautiful lover
   G-/Bb (or E-7b5/Bb)
My Lover
D          /C       /B
  I am the distant shore
/Bb       D
  So far away
            /C        /B      /Bb
There is so much to uncover
       A7      /
Love's hiding
What is this distance for
/             D     B-  E-  A7    D  B-  E-  G-  /
   What is it for

  D        /C        /B
Out of the dark I am falling
I^Òm fallin'
D       /C        /B
   Into your warm candle flame
  So bright
D          /C                   /B        /Bb
   A butterfly pinned to love's calling
       A7       /
Love's calling
Why must this magic be named
/           D      /
 Must it be named

      B-         E-
We've filled the air
G-          A7
With silent stares
    B-           E-
But still no one dares
       E-7b5/Bb    /
We are strangers
    B-          G
The sad jealous praise
       E-       G-
As the symphony plays
    E-         G-        D      /C  /B  G-/Bb
And we are the foolish arrangers
              D       /C  /B  G-/Bb
The foolish arrangers


Duration Notation:
| = bar line; within bar lines chords divide measure
