The Carmichaels - Al Stewart
Intro E-D  Dmaj7-E 2x
D       E      D            E         A          D       E
Mr Carmichael says that he loves his wife, I believe he does
 A               E           D       E  D  Dmaj7  E
Gives her everything that a man can give
     D       E      D                      A    D       E
But Mr Carmichael beggars himself on the altar of his love
     A               E                    D       E  D  Dmaj7  E
And you can tell him that that's not the way to live
     A          B        E   G#
And oh how the wind has blown
     A                B     E   G#
The leaves from the linden tree
     A           B           E   G#
And oh when the night grows free
A                E       D       E  D  Dmaj7  E
Why does Mrs Carmichael come to me?

D       E        D       E               A       D       E
Mrs Carmichael rises at ten, takes her time, is at her ease
 A                    E           D   E  D  Dmaj7  E
Drinking coffee in slippers and negligee
D           E            D        E         A              D       E
Opens the door and the milkman brings her dreams, there's no-one sees
    A                  E        D         E  D  Dmaj7  E
Except the statue of Venus and she won't say
     A          B        E   G#
And oh how the wind has blown
     A                B     E   G#
The leaves from the linden tree
     A           B           E   G#
And oh when the night grows free
A                E       D       E  D  Dmaj7  E
Why does Mrs Carmichael come to me?

    D       E      D            E         A          D       E
Oh Mr Carmichael, captain and star of his office billiards team
 A                      E           D          E  D  Dmaj7  E
Smiles to greet the applause as his ball goes in
D          E      D            E     A               D       E
Hurrying back, bringing his victory home but there's no-one here
      A                   E       D     E  D  Dmaj7  E
And supper waits on the table inside a tin
     A          B        E   G#
And oh how the linden leaves
     A             B           E   G#
Lie tossed as the night wind blows
     A             B        E   G#
And struck in his silent pose
A              E                 D       E  D  Dmaj7  E
Mr Carmichael weeps and there's no-one knows
