Helplessly Hoping.. CSN (1969)


Am7                    C                      G                     D
Helplessly hoping her  harlequin  hovers near-by,    awaiting   a   word.

Am7                    C                      G                     D
Gasping at glimpses of gentle true  spirit he runs wishing he could fly

        Am7         C             G     D
only to trip at the sound of good-bye...

Am7                     C                         G
Wordlessly watching he  waits  by the window  and wonders at the empty
         D
place in-side

Am7                     C                         G
Heartlessly helping him-self to her bad dreams he worries did he hear
      D      Am7  C         G    C/G
a goodbye or even...    hel-lo?


CHORUS

         G   C/G              G     C/G            G        C/G
They are one person, they are two a-lone, they are three to-gether, they
    G   Dm/F        C
are for...     each other


Am7                         C                        G
Stand by the starway you'll see something certain to tell you confusion
        D
has its cost.

Am7                   C                   G                      D
Love isn't lying it's loose in a lady who lingers, saying she is lost and
Am7      C         C/G
choking...  on hel-lo.

I'm still quite a novice, but from what I have studied and from the people I have played with, it is worth posting what I believe to be is the chord layout for C/G and for Dm/F; you will find that these chords are easily cheated.

C/G 330010 and Dm/F xx3213

Yeh and if you are a beginner you can play c or dm respectively and it still sounds ok. i recommend that if you want to play the song perfectly though then use the proper chords.

great song, simple tab but thanks for putting it up! i love playing this song.
