Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
The other version has some chords a bit wrong from what I could tell, so I just fixed those
mistakes. Should work fine now.

Verse 1

C                     Fmaj7
I keep a letter in my drawer 
              C                F
Postmark from several years before 
C                                   Dm
A headstone etched there on the page – a name a place a dying day 
Am                 F
But god, I’m never sure 


Verse 2

              C               Fmaj7
I guess three years ago last week 
              C               Fmaj7
A ghost-girl drifted down to me
             C                           Dm  
And left the outline of a timid face then slipped away without a trace
         Am                 F
Through space between the graves 


Chorus 1

            C              Dm
And then I fell down on my knees
           Am            F  
I placed a kiss on stony cheeks
             C               Dm 
I feel that grit between my teeth
              Am                F 
Why won’t she stay, love never stayed with me 

(brief interlude resolves to C)

Verse 3 

C                              Fmaj7
Something like eighteen months ago 
           C              Fmaj7  
I chased a rumor chased a hope 
            C                                          Dm                                      Am
That at St. Peter’s church the clock strikes twelve and ghost girls tend to show themselves but this one 
          F
Would not come 


Chorus 2

            C              Dm
And then I fell down on my knees
           Am            F  
I placed a kiss on stony cheeks
             C               Dm 
I feel that grit between my teeth
              Am                F 
Why won’t she stay, love never stayed with me 



Verse 4

C                             Fmaj7    
The years get longer counting days 
              C             Fmaj7
I’ve got some private holidays 
            C                              Dm
But when I burned my words by candle-light I saw her standing there behind 
  Am                    F 
“Go on,” she said, “I’ll wait.” 

Chorus 3

           C                Dm
And then I fell down at her feet
         Am                 F 
I laid a kiss on bloodless cheeks
          C               F     
Escaping steam between my teeth
              Am               F      
Why won’t she stay, love never stayed with me
