The end of the riff is a little bit vague, but globally the guitar 1 continues on the same notes.


Lyrics :

There's a long, long road 
to reach your house.
and I arrived just before,
just before the sunset.
and you said,
and you said welcome with your eyes.
and we said,
and we said nothing and all.

Oh we have been to many churches but we never believed.
we have been to many churches but we never believed.

If you go too far,
there is a song you'll hear.
If we get too close,
whisper in my ears.
speak the word, say it.
Bewilder, say it.
Humming bird, say it.
Be my dad...

Oh we have been to many churches but we never believed.
we have been to many churches but we never believed.
we have been to many churches but we never believed.
we have been to many churches but we never believed

This is brilliant! It looks like you put a lot of work into it, and I appreciate it loaaaddsss.

In case you ever need it, I rewrote this for the ukulele, and this can also be played on the guitar, with a capo on the 5th fret (which is also just a bit easier, I think):

But I love you for taking the time to figure this out originally. Greatly indebted! :)
