I don't know the names of some of the chords and whatnot, so here's how I play 
them – note that you only briefly touch on E? and B? and could avoid them if you 
found it easier to play.

   F    E?    F#2   G2    B?   C?   F?



INTRO: C E? F C, C E? F F#2 G2
       C E? F C B? Am, G F, F E? C

	   
	C	E?	   F		C
When the days go drifting backwards
     C     E?      F          G   
and old friends' voices chew the air.
     C		E?    F  	   C 	  B?    Am
Well, the shells make my ears get seasick -
	G						F	E?  C 
I know the ocean isn't really living there.

  	C	E?	   F		C
And the pendulum doesn't swing for passion,
     C     E?      F          G   
and even horror can't make those stubborn hands freeze.
     C		E?    F  	   C 	  B?    Am
But sometimes just a soft light lit in a bedroom
	G						F	E?  C 
can bring a tired traveller to his knees.

 	 	C	E?	   F		C	E?	F
She said, "If you come to me, I'll make it easy.
	 	C	E?	   F		C	E?	F 
If you come to me, I'll make it easy for you.
       Em			F
So when you come to me, you can breathe freely.
			C		G2		F
And I'll let you stand a while on my side,
C		G2		F
stand a while on my side,
C		G2		F		C	C?	
stand a while on my side of the blues."

F	F?


  	C	E?	   F		C
Well, praise be to the rolling graveyards,
     C     E?      F          G   	
and to the heroes with their necklaces of seaweed.
     C		E?    F  	   C 	  B?    Am
Cinderella's got to be home before midnight
	G						F	E?  C 
so St. Christopher don't ever have to leave.


  	C	E?	   F		C
And here's a toast to all the furious seasons
     C     E?      F          G   	
that went and stole the blood out of baby's cheeks.
     C		E?    F  	   C 	  B?    Am
Though she was a one who always come so close to smiling,
	G						F	E?  C 
she made crying seem like Christmas Eve.


	 	C	E?	   F		C	E?	F
And she said, "If you come to me, I'll make it easy.
	 	C	E?	   F		C	E?	F 
If you come to me, I'll make it easy for you.
       Em			F
So when you come to me, you can breathe freely.
			C		G2		F
And I'll let you stand a while on my side,
C		G2		F
stand a while on my side,
C		G2		F		C	C?	
stand a while on my side of the blues."

F	F?


  	C	E?	   F		C
Well, a tattooed body wrote himself into a fable,
     C     E?      F          G   	
the story of the pine needle and the sheep.
     C		E?    F  	   C 	  B?    Am
They found him hibernating beneath the coffee table.
	G						F	E?  C 
It turned out it was actually a human sleep.

  	C	E?	   F		C
And the trees forgave the fire that went on burning,
     C     E?      F          G   	
'til hope was all it left when the smoke cleared.
     C		E?    F  	   C 	  B?    Am
I'll forgive her body for deserting
	G						F	E?  C 
as soon as I recall why mine's still here


	 	C	E?	   F		C	E?	F
She said, "If you come to me, I'll make it easy.
	 	C	E?	   F		C	E?	F 
If you come to me, I'll make it easy for you.
       Em			F
So when you come to me, you can breathe freely.
			C		G2		F
And I'll let you stand a while on my side,
C		G2		F
stand a while on my side,
C		G2		F		C	C?	
stand a while on my side of the blues."

F	F?


  	C	E?	   F		C
So the days launch forward leaving memories,
     C     E?      F          G   	
dragging swollen clouds across a robin's egg.
     C		E?    F  	   C 	  B?    Am
Like the beggar, I know I'm bound to get clean eventually
	G						F 
if I just keep walking up and down the street.
F	E?  C 
Up and the down the street.
