Lost Boys Calling
Capo I (Every chord is really a half-step higher than written)

*=single notes (no chord)

               C*
Come hold me now
         F*
I am not gone
G*                                 C*
I would not leave you here alone
              F                  Ab
In this dead calm beneath the waves
            Am7         Am7/D        G
I can still hear those lost     boys calling

              C
You could not speak
            F
You were afraid
   G                      Ab*    Am7
To take the risk of being left again
           G                 Am7       G
And so you tipped your hat and waved and then
Dm                                     G
You turned back up the gangway of that steel tomb again

CHORUS (2x, 2nd time with ?she holds? and ?we?)
       C              F
And in Mott Street in July
       Dm7                 G7
When I hear those seabirds cry
  F        Em7        Am7          F
I hold the child, the child in the man
    G7            G/B     C
The child that we leave behind

              C
The spotlight fades
            F
The boys disband,
    G                             C
the final notes lie mute upon the sand
           F              Ab*
And in the silence of the grave
              Am7            Am7/D    G
I can still hear those lost boys calling

             C
We left them there
               F
When they were young
    G                                 C
The men  were gone until the west was won
                    F                        Ab*
And now there's nothing left but time to kill
          Am7     Am7/D
You never took us fishing, Dad
    G
And now you never will

CHORUS I


Notes:
1. Not sure about the Ab as a single note, but I can?t figure out a chord here. I tried 
F/Ab, but it didn?t sound right. 

2. Not sure about the G/B either.

3. I also had a bit of trouble with the "and so you tipped your hat and waved" line. I'm 
sure that what I have is correct, but would welcome suggestions.

Sorry, the D/Am7 is of course supposed to be an Am7/D. -- Bookstorecowboy
