DIMMING OF THE DAY- Bonnie Raitt

G                                        D
This old house is falling down around my ears
C                 G           D
I'm drowning in a river of my tears
     G                                 D
When all my will is gone, you hold me sway
C                 G       D      G
I need you at the dimming of the day.

CHORUS:
D                                      A
You pull me like the moon pulls on the tide
D                                    A    D G C
You know just where I keep my better side-----

G                                   D
What days have come to keep us far apart?
C                 G           D
A broken promise or a broken heart
G                                        D
Now all the morning birds have wheeled away
C                 G       D      G
I need you at the dimming of the day

CHORUS 2:
D                                 A
Come the night you're only what I want
D                                 A      D G C
Come the night you could be my confidant-----

G                                 D
I see you on the street and in company
      C                G                   D
Why don't you come and ease your mind with me
G                                 D
I'm living for the night we steal away
C                 G       D      G
I need you at the dimming of the day
C                 G       D      G
I need you at the dimming of the day


NOTE:  This is actually orignially a Richard Thompson song,
but the Bonnie Raitt version has changed the key and
reordered some of the words.
(from Longing in Their Hearts, 1994)
