[Intro]
C D G C

[Verse]
    C                D     G                C
Oh, light a candle's fire, carries our good name
               C           D
What would you ask a campfire?
   G                  C
It scares me just the same
    C                       D
And you, you've had it all along
   G                C
An endless need for games
              C               D       G           C
Just don't forget, a candle's fire is only just a flame

C D G C


[Verse]
C                   D    G                 C
I hit certain from afar, failed to pull my weight
             C                              D
But you were light, we traveled through the fall
    G                  C
To arrive at our front gate
  C                        D
Tonight we rest beside the fire
  G               C
A smile upon your face
              C               D       G           C
Just don't forget, a candle's fire is only just a flame

C C G G


[Chorus]
Am          D             G             C
   If I had known that to carry on that way
Am             D           G               C
   It wouldn't show in the creases on your face
Am               D             G           C
   If you should go, would you carry on my name?
Am             D           G               C
   Just let it blow in the fog of Bishop's Lane

Am D G C    x 4

I believe both this song and Santa Fe are tuned down just shy of half a step, something like 40 cents.

the last line (written as blah blah blah...) is:
just let it blow like the fog on Bishop's lane

when i first heard this song, i messed around with my guitar and found that Am Dm G Em works really well with the melody
