Helplessly Hoping -- Crosby, Stills, & Nash

This is an improved tab for such a classic - more accurate timing and 
placement of suspended notes after compiling several previous versions 
and making some changes of my own. Enjoy!

Helplessly hoping her har-lequin hovers near-      Am7, C
-by, a-waiting a word                              G, D 
Gasping at glimpses of gen-tle true spirit he
Runs, wishing he could fly-y. Only to
Trip at the sound of goodbye, aye, ah ah aye       Am7-C, G, D

Wordlessly watching he waits by the window and 
Wonders at the empty place inside
Heartlessly helping himself to her bad dreams he 
Worries: did he hear a good-bye, aye?
Or even, helloooo, oooo,oooo?

They are o-ne person            G riff
They are twooo alone
They are threeee together
They are fo-or each other       G, Fmaj7, C riff

Stand by the stairway you'll see something certain to 
Tell you: confusion has its cost
Love isn't lying, it's loose in a lady who 
Lingers, saying she is lo-ost, aaand
Choking, on helloooo, oooo,oooo

They are o-ne person
They are twooo alone
They are threeee together
They are fo-or each other
