Lyrics:


 
         Dm   |                     Dm |                            Am
Standing here | The old man said to me | \"Long before these crowded streets
                       Am    |                   Dm  |                Dm
Here stood my dreaming tree\" | Below it he would sit | For hours at a time
                   Am   |                      Am   |                  Dm
Now progress takes away | What forever took to find | Now he's falling hard
                     Dm   |                 Am |                      Am
He feels the falling dark | How he longs to be | Beneath his dreaming tree
                  Dm    |                   Dm   |                            Am
Conquered fear to climb | A moment froze in time | When the girl who first he kissed
                      Am  |                     Dm    |           Dm
Promised him she'd be his | Remembered mother's words | There beneath the tree
                    Am    |                     Am    |            Dm
\"No matter what the world | You'll always be my baby\" | Mommy come quick
                      Dm   |                    Am    |              Am                         
The dreaming tree has died | The air is growing thick | A fear he cannot hide
                      Dm
The dreaming tree has died

Chorus:

A              G    |              F  |           D     
Oh have you no pity | This thing I do | I do not deny it
                 A     |               G      |          F      
All through this smile | As crooked as danger | I do not deny
          D       |                   A   |              G            
I know in my mind | I would leave you now | If I had the strength to
                  F  |             D       |              A      
I would leave you up | To your own devices | Will you not talk 
             G    |             F    |               D      A         
Can you take pity | I don't ask much | But won't you speak  Please

Intro X 11

[Verse 2]

         Dm    |                     Dm   |              Am
From the start | She knew she had it made | Easy up 'til then
  Dm                    Am    |                 Dm     |                   
For sure she'd make the grade | Adorers came in hordes | To lay down in her wake
                    Am  |                      Am   |                   Dm
She gave it all she had | But treasures slowly fade | Now she's falling hard
                      Dm   |                   Am    |                       Am
She feels the fall of dark | How did this fall apart | She drinks to fill it up
                     Dm     |                Dm    |                       Am
A smile of sweetest flowers | Wilted so and soured | Black tears stain the cheeks
                    Am    |                         Dm    |                      Dm
That once were so admired | She thinks when she was small | There on her father's knee 
                    Am  |                      Am    |             Dm
How he had promised her | \"You'll always be my baby\" | \"Daddy come quick  
                      Dm   |                     Am   |                  Am
The dreaming tree has died | I can't find my way home | There is no place to hide  
                      Dm
The dreaming tree has died\"

It's pretty good, but the format you have is a bit unwieldy. It's best to have lines seperated by going down one, instead of the | seperating lines.

This is completely wrong, well almost. The chorus is right but you only have 2 out of 4 chords for the verses. The progression is Dm, Bb, C, Am. Then between the verse and chorus Dave does a pattern were he goes Dm, Bb, C; the Dm is held and the Bb and C are really quick. Like said chorus is good though. This is my favorite song of theirs so I know how it goes very well.
