Capo 2nd fret

C Am C Am F G

Verse 1
C              Am
I met you at a party
C               Am
or on a crowded street
C               Am
a silent singularity 
F                       G
when glances chanced to meet

You looked into my glasses
said you'd seen a ghost
tried my best to make you smile
as we calypsoed close

I had been to Cleveland
You had been to jail
You seemed to be recovering
but I felt a little pale

Our house it was on seventeenth
above the hardware store
there we lived with seven cats
all named for in seven dwarves
Chorus:
F                    G
but like leaves and kings
F                C
all things must fall
F                    G
no diamond ring is gonna 
F               C
cut through it all

Verse 2:
you were working as a graverobber
you could do your job at night
I was living hand-to-mouth
just looking for a fight

the reason why we parted
it ain't that hard to find
I was always busy
and you never had the time

well the reason why we parted
it ain't that hard to see
but I was never sure
if I left you or you left me
Chorus:
but like leaves and kings
all things must fall
no diamond ring is gonna
cut through it all

[harmonica]
Verse 3:
and when it was all over
I lost myself in work
you got married to a lawyer
painting murals in new york

and though it seems a million miles ago
since I saw the light
the hours flowed by nervously
like warships in the night

Many times I've been corrupted
but I've never been in love
and I began to realize 
that that's just where I was

so I packed up my possessions
and caught an eastbound train
met you in ohio
sleeping in the rain
Chorus
but like leaves and kings
all things must fall
no diamond ring is gonna
cut through it all

Verse 4:
so now we're going back again
to start where we began
with rules and regulations 
but no real kinda plan

I learned my lesson well
with no mistakes at all
once you find yourself true love
you just keep holding on

F                   G
like leaves and kings
F                C
all things must fall
F                  G
no diamond ring is gonna
F               C
cut through it all
F               G
but now out of the dark
F           G
out of the blue
F                G
like leaves and kings
F                          C
I've fallen in love with you
