play the strings together
listen to the record to get the right rithm

MR
The hour is ending, can't you see
There is no way now, to get free

Dm(hold)
In the shadow of the season
Without a reason, to carry home
Without a reason, without a reason

Dm (hold)
And from the north woods
Down on the valley
In a world of hurting, I'm moving on

Out from the lighthouse
Out on the ocean
Can't climb the mountain, so very tall


F G F E-Dm
         Said Lord please give me what I need

F G F E-Dm
         He said there's pain and misery

C            G                 Dm
Oh sweet oblivion feels alright

M.R. (Dm)
The hour is drawing ever closer
And rolling over, won't let me be
In the shadow of the season
To find a reason, to carry home

Said Lord please give me what I need
He said there's pain and misery
Oh sweet oblivion


She calls me onward to her side
And feels her song deep inside
And find a reason
In the shadow, of the season
To find a reason to carry home
In the shadow, of the season
To find a reason to carry home
Find a reason, to carry home
To carry home, to find a reason
To carry home, to carry home

Bass line (very easy)

NEARLY LOST YOU

intro: C-(F)-C D-(G)-D A
Riff: A-F A-F
verse:
A	        F
Did you hear the distant cry

C	        D		A
Calling me back to my sin

Like the one you knew before

Calling me back once again


A  G  F

F-C         F		G?
I nearly, I nearly lost you there

And it's taking us somewhere

I nearly lost you there

Let's try to see now


Drag me far enough to know
I'm blind every mile that you burn
There's a rider that's fallen and
It's clear there's no time to return

I nearly, I nearly lost you there
And it's taking us somewhere
I nearly lost you there
Let's try to see now

Did you hear the distant lie
Calling me back to my sin
Like the one you knew before
Calling me back once again

I nearly, I nearly lost you there
And it's taking us somewhere
I nearly lost you there
Weel let's try to see now

I nearly lost you there....

DOLLAR BILL

INTO AC.GTR C-F

C            		F	C F
Torn like an old dollar bill
Girl let them say what they will
That no one should hurt ya
And that's all I seem to do
That no one should desert ya
And that's all I seem to do

I gotta tell you, goodbye mama
We've taken this too far


D5				      F
Been trying to tell you what's going on
(C-F)
Trying to make it easy on ya

Trying to make it better, make it easier on ya

It's all I came to do, It's all I came to do


Now down in the light, and I must be dreaming

Cause I see clearly, I see angels

Bringing something to me

Mother Mercy, I told a lie, I didn't need it


Good bye mama, I've taken this too far

Been gone awhile, been gone a long way

I don't want to hurt ya, it's all I seem to do

Don't want to desert ya, it's all I seem to do


I gotta tell you, goodbye mama

I've taken this too far

Been down awhile, been down a long way

Trying to make it easy on ya

Trying to make it better, make it easier on ym

It's all I came to do (x 3)

Torn like an old dollar bill

Now that we've run this road so many times
Tonight it will not take us home
Gonna go to that deep river
Where the water's moving slow

Feels like there's nothing to explain

One more or less it's all the same
Now that it's feeling so much colder
(Coming back again)
Just be glad that it's all over

Em		C		G
Now that we've closed our eyes so many times
Tonight I cannot see a thing
Gonna go to that deep river
Where the water's moving slow

Feels like there's nothing to explain
(Nothing left here)
And now you know just who to blame
For why you're feeling so much colder
(Coming back again)
Just be glad that it's all over

Gonna go to that deep river

C A-D5


C
Changing memories they fade away
A-D5
The hours and the day

C
While in the sunshine, the sunshine bright

A-D5
I kept you on my mind

G   D    A      (D5)
Cry, cry butterfly

IDEM
Heard it on the wings that you're going to die
Cry, cry butterfly
And I'm sick and I wanna go home

Up to an empty room
Four walls around nothing to be found
Of empty promises in a lonesome town
Let me lay you down

Cry, cry butterfly
Heard it on the wings that you're going to die
Cry, cry butterfly
And I'm sick and I wanna go home

The changing memories they fade away
The hours in the day
While in the sunshine, the sunshine bright
I kept you on my mind

Cry, cry butterfly
Heard it on the wings that you're going to die
Cry, cry butterfly
And I'm sick and I wanna go home

Cry, cry butterfly
Heard it on the wings that you're going to die
Cry, cry butterfly
And I'm sick and I wanna go home
Well I'm sick and I want to go home
That I'm sick and I want to go home

They keep themselves moving and do what is right
Now watch what you gather and hold in your hand
Numbers are many who misunderstand

C               A
Drink your wine away instead
I won't remember all that's said
Say farewell and close the door
You'll find me nevermore

A	G	D	A
That I believe in
That that I believe in
A	G	D(hold)
That that I believe in you
D(hold)
Must be a crying shame

Tell you a story of that which comes last
All of the sorrow that lives in the past
Now if you're tired of all that's been told
Don't be surprised that I've grown so old

Drink your wine away instead
I won't remember all that's said
Say farewell and close the door
You'll find me nevermore

That I believe in
That I believe in
That I believe in you
Must be a crying shame

Breathing ind shadows or dead on the vine
I'm there in the morning to take you sometimes
To watch what you gather and hold in your hand
The numbers are many who misunderstand

Drink your wine away instead
I wont remember all that's said
Say farewell and close the door
You'll find me nevermore

That I believe in
That I believe in
That I believe in
That I believe in
That I believe in you
Must be a crying shame (x 3)
Oh yeah
Must be a crying shame (x 3)

Yesterday is twice removed
Tomorrow's close behind
Alone and unreliable
Windows out of time

Lying in the quiet darkness
Hitting high and low
Pictures shifting out of focus
Not as far to go
Eyes to the sun
One more blind
Secret kind

INTRO:A chord

A		E
Jesus knocking on my door
D			A
Late last night, and early this morning

Window glass, rusted and weary
I went straight through
And didn't hear no warning

(double time)

A		E
Just a roll of the dice, and a precious vice
D		      G
To bring you 'round, it's easier
A		E
When I'm wasting my time
D
And I'm losing my mind
G	D	E
Oh my mind
D		A
Trying to wait for the sky to fall
D		A
It's kind of hard now to see it all
D		A	E	A
Whisper a song of winter in your heart

Dead end street, just out my back door
I heard what's seen, a young girl laughing
Now raindrops fall away like souls
I wondered if she ever heard mine dying

Just a roll of the dice, and a precious vice
To bring you 'round, it's easier
When I'm wasting my time
And I'm losing my mind
Oh my mind

Trying to wait for the sky to fall
It's kind of hard now to see it all
Whisper a song of winter in your heart
(repeat)

Jesus knocking on my door
One last time, and early this morning

INTRO (D-F-G)
Lay it to rest, you know my word ain't the best
This is just another question of faith
That I must take
'Til it's laid to waste
Laid to waste
D		C
I stood and I watched you weep
G		D
Until I'm gone you're sure to cry some more
I stayed, lit a cigarette
I thought we'd been here some time before

CHORUS RIFF
Booked and I got to hurry
Troubled times and worry
Will turn your head away
Swear to you now I'm learning
Troubled times are turning
Turn your head away
She said that "it's five AM
I think it's time for you to go"
Got to hurry, got to get on board
And drink myself to sleep and home
Booked and I got to hurry
Troubled times and worry
Will turn your head away
Swear to you I'm learning
Troubled times are turning
Turn your head away
Shoot me on down baby (x 4)
Booked and I got to hurry
Troubled times and worry
Will turn your head away
Swear to you I'm learning
Troubled times are turning
Turn your head away
Booked and I got to hurry
Troubled times and worry
Will turn your head away
Swear to you I'm learning
Troubled times are turning
Turn your head away
Shoot me on down baby (X4)
Lay it to rest, you know my love ain't the best
This is just another question of taste
That I must take
'Til it's laid to waste

Don't turn away, you haven't yet awakened
Why don't you stay, remember what you said
Ten thousand miles and everyone's mistaken
Look where you've been
Where every woman's wasted

All the while you've been sleeping
Drifting on a wind never blown
Tomorrow you'll wake up aching
Wondering how, when no one really knows

Don't speak a word, of all that you've been saving
If there isn't time then you should let it go
Into the fire and bring back all you've taken
Once more alone you'll never let it show

All the while you've been sleeping
Drifting on a wind never blown
Tomorrow you'll wake up aching
Wondering how, when no one really knows

Now what have I do wrong
Can't you tell me what have I done wrong
Baby tell me what have I done wrong

Don't walk away, you haven't yet awakened
Why don't you stay, remember what you said
Ten thousand miles, and everyone's mistaken
Look where you've been
Where every woman's wasted

All the while you've been sleeping
Drifting on a wind never blown
Tomorrow you'll wake up aching
Wondering how, when no one really knows

Now what have I do wrong
Can't you tell me what have I done wrong
Baby tell me what have I done wrong
