[Intro i-ii-iii]

       C           G
i pick up a broken comb
       Em                   G
run it through my thin grey hair
         Am             Em
though i don't have any plans tonight
        C        G
i'm not going anywhere
       C                     G
well i should have seen this coming
      Em           G
don't know why i'm surprised
          Am            Em
cos every vessel on its way down
takes with it the captain's life

[see "though i'm blind..." tab above]
though i'm blind my dear i see
the parade goes on without me
my body aches my mind it weeps
for you .... for you

[Intro i x2]

            C                 G
tonight i'm locked outside my building
        Em                 G
guess i must have lost the keys
             Am         Em
so i'll just sit on the sidewalk
            C               G
and let the snow fall on my knees
         C            G
and if i made it to a payphone
        Em               G
i don't know who i would call
       Am                Em
so for now i'll close my eyes and rest
my crooked back against the wall

[G-G2 x3]

            C                G
i read that old men will see visions
          Em              G
and young men will follow dreams
      Am                 Em
and i believed it when i read it
           C            G
i see your face in everything
         C              G
now your honey jars are frozen
           Em                     G
and in the window your books have browned
            Am              Em
and there's too much room inside our bed
i think i'll join you in the ground

[see "though i'm blind..." tab above]
though i'm blind my dear i see
let the chorus sing without me
my body breaks my mind it sleeps
     C   C2
with you oh oh oh

[G-G2 x3 - G]

That last G will make it flow a little nicer. I hear it in the song. To each his own, though.

No dynamic chord progressions. All hard coded in. Impossible to transpose and thus hard for piano playing.
