How Kind of You

A                            F#m
 How kind of you to think of me
A                  F#m
 when I was out of sorts.
A                  F#m
 It really meant a lot to be
    C#m             Em
in someone else's thoughts,
C#m            Em
someone else's mind,
C#m              Dm  Dm/F     A
someone else as kind,     as you.

The thoughtfulness you showed has made
a difference in my life.
I won't forget how unafraid
you were that long dark night.
I thought that all was lost,
I thought I'd never find,
Dm                  Dm/F      A
 a someone quite as kind, as you.

I thougt my faith had gone,
I thought there couldn't be,
a someone who was there for me.

Inter 1:[A  Em/B  C  Em/B] x3  [Esus4  E]

How kind of you to stick by me
during the final bout.
And listen to the referee
as I was counted out,
I thought my time was up,
I thought I'd never find
a someone as kind, as you.
I thought my faith had gone,…

How kind of you to think of me.
How kind of you.

Inter 2:[A  Em/B  C  Em/B] x3  [A]

How kind of you to think of me.
How kind of you.

end:[F  E] x3  [A]

Jenny Wren
     *I know this is wrong I've seen him in concert and he uses an alternate tuning this
as close as I could get. Intro doen't have a capo on the guitar. It is pretty much like
bird you use finger picking for the chords, before the F#m pick the E string.


Capo 1

Intro: A F#m F#m E D D E F#m

(Play the intro over the verse - it's the same until "took her song away")
A       F#m         F#m   E          D
Like so many girls, Jenny Wren could sing
D   E E  F#m        F#m  E
   Am
But a broken heart, took her song away

Like the other girls, Jenny Wren took wing
She could see the world, and it's foolish ways

Am      Dm   A/C#   Dm    Ddim
 Em7 C
How we spend our    days, casting love a   side
Am     Dm    A/C# Dm   Ddim   Am
Losing sight of   life day by day

She saw poverty, breaking all the home
Wounded warriors, took her song away

[Solo]
Am Em F#m x3 (3rd time hold F#m)
Am       Dm    A/C#   Dm    Ddim
 Em7 C
Am       Dm    A/C# Dm    Ddim     Am

But the day will come, Jenny Wren will sing
When this broken world, mends its foolish ways

Now we spend our days, catching up on life
All because of you, Jenny Wren

You saw, who we are, Jenny Wren

Am Em F#m x3

                      D6
At the mercy, at the mercy At the mercy of a busy road, Who can handle such a heavy load?

 E7/G#                             G  D

Dmaj7            F#m7            Bm  Bdim
                G
 If you show me love, I won't refuse     I know you'd never make me choose
F#m            F#/A#      Bm          A
  Bm  Bdim
   Between the love I've got and the love I'd lose     sometimes
                    Bm  Bdim                               Bm
I'd rather run and hide,    Then stay and face the fear inside

Dmaj7          F#m7             Bm  Bdim
                G
 If you take me up, I won't say no      I guess you'd rather see me grow
F#m        F#/A#  Bm          A
 Bdim
   Into a better man than the one you know      Sometimes
                    Bm  Bdim                              Bm
my head is hanging low      It's time to get on with the show

C                          D5                      D   D5dim
                       D6
At the mercy, at the mercy At the mercy of a busy day I can think of nothing more to say

Friends to Go (My favorite like Paul said it sounded like George song)


E                              Bm      B7
 I've been waitin on the other side,   for your friends to leave
   E7               A         Am               E

              B7                                            E
So I've been waiting on the other side, for your friends to go.

(same chords)
I've been sliding down a slippery slope, I've been climbing
up a slowly burning rope, but the flame is getting low.
I've been waitin' on the other side, for your friends to go.

[E7]

Chorus
A           Am       E
 You never need to worry about me,
F#m                 C#m
 I'll be fine on my own.
C                  G
 Someone else can worry about me,
B7
 I've spent alot of time on my own.
B7
 I've spent alot of time on my own.

(chords same as verse 1)
I've been waitin till the danger past, I don't know
how long the storm is gonna to last, if we're gonna carry on.
I'll been waiting on the other side, till your friends are gone.

B7
So tell me what I wanna know.                          E
I'll be waiting on the other side, for your friends to go.
E7

[solo] (chords as chorus, but don't play someone else can....)

Riding to Vanity Fair
Am
  I bit my tongue I never talk too much, I try to be so strong. I did my best
I used a gentle touch, I've done it for so long. You put me down But I can laugh
it off And act like nothing's wrong Why pretend? I think I've heard enough
Of your familiar song.

Em                               C
  I'll tell you what I'm gonna do I'll try to take my mind off you.
Em                               C
  Now that you don't need my help I've used the time to think about myself.

Am
  You're not aware Of what you put me through But now the feeling's gone
But I don't mind Do what you have to do You don't fool anyone.

Em                               C
  I'll tell you what I'm gonna do I'll take a different point of you.
Em                               C
  Now that you don't need my help I've used the time to think about myself.

F
 The definition of friendship Apparently you're to be sure to support
    G                F
the one that you love and I was open to friendship But you didn't seem
                   G
to have to spare While you were riding to Vanity Fair.

Am
  There was a time When everyday was young, The sun would always shine.
We sang along When all the songs we sung Believing every line.

Solo: (Em  C)  x2

F
 That's the trouble with friendship Someone to feed it it has to be real
       G               F
Or it wouldn't be right And I keep hoping for friendship But I wouldn't
                               G                                 Am
dare to presume it was there While you were riding to Vanity Fair.
                            End
