Em7                  C                  D     C
  I'm blessed with a heart that doesn't stop
Em7          C              G                 D
  My minds a weathervane it spins around just like a top
Em7              C                D            C
  Knows what the winds of fortune bring in the season of the witch
Em7         C          G                D 
  Home is a perjury, a parlor trick, an urban myth

G            D             C              D
  Oh how the circumstances change, oohoho
G               D                Am             D         
  This world is smoke and steel, compromise and meter maids
G              D                    C           D
  I'm going to leave here before to long, ohooho
G              D                   Am             C
  Zigzagging toward the light, I'm off to sing my bounder song

Em7 C D C
Em7 C D

Em7            C               D      C
  True love it hides like city stars
Em7          C            G               D
  Nothing to gaze upon or contemplate how near or far
Em7               C               D          C   
  If it comes, it comes quite unannounced, a momentary glance
Em7         C              G          D
  Lit up by sun or moon or bonfire or ambulance

G            D             C              D
  Oh how the circumstances change, oohoho
G            D             Am           D         
  Feels unmistakable, with no idea from where it came
G              D                 C    D
  But you will know it when it's gone
G            D                       Am                 C
  Zigzagging through the night, half dead you sing your bounders song

Em7   G       C                  B7
         half dead you sing your bounder song?
Em7   G       C                    B7
         Half dead you sing? Half dead you sing?
C              G               B7            C
  Sing for the bounders, whose word is never kept
C              G          B7
  A bandeau of flowers to stay his mind and bloom when he forgets

Em7 C D C

Em7              C                D    C
  It's true that shadows tell the time
Em7        C              G                  D
  On sunny afternoons, on crowded sidewalks, passersby
Em7        C                    D       C
  I'm in a queue that stretches out far as the eye can see 
Em7          C                G            D                          
  It forms a figure eight and goes on for eternity

G            D             C              D
  Oh how the circumstances change (oohoho)
G          D           Am             D         
  I fly by interstate across a purple mountain range
G          D               C            D
  I find a place to come undone (oohoho)
G              D               Am                C
  Zigzagging toward you now, I sing out loud our bounders song

G  D  C  D  (4x)
Em G  B7 Em (4x)
