Rosanne Cash – September When It Comes

To play the song in the original key, tune your guitar 1/2 step down. 

Intro: Em 

           Em              C      G
There's a cross above the baby's bed,
   D             Em
A Saviour in her dreams.
C                   G         Em          
   But she was not delivered then,
         D          Em
And the baby became me.
           Em               C         G
There's a light inside the darkened room,
   D                Em
A footstep on the stairs.
C                   G      Em
   A door that I forever close,
    D                    Em      
To leave those memories there.

C                      Am 
  So when the shadows link them,
C                  Am
  Into an evening sun.
             Em                      C       G
Well first there's summer, then I'll let you in.
   D               Em
September when it comes.

       Em            C         G
I plan to crawl outside these walls,
  D               Em
Close my eyes and see.
C                     G        Em
   And fall into the heart and arms,
     D                Em
Of those who wait for me.
      Em         C        G
I cannot move a mountain now;
   D             Em
I can no longer run.
C                 G       Em
  I cannot be who I was then:
      D           Em
In a way, I never was.

 C                         Am
   I watch the clouds go sailing;
C                        Am   
   I watch the clock and sun.
       Em              C       G
Oh, I watch myself, depending on,
    D              Em
September when it comes.

C                       Am
   So when the shadows link them,
C                      Am
   And burn away the clouds.
          Em             C
They will fly me, like an angel,
G      D                Em
To a place where I can rest.
       C                G        Em
When this begins, I'll let you know,
    D              Em
September when it comes.

The lyric for the ninth line of the song (first line of the pre-chorus) is
"So when the shadows lengthen"

( you have it written incorrectly as,
"So when the shadows link them," )
