         G             Em                  Bm
You can put 'em on the counter, there with all the other flowers
             G                Em            Bm
And help me figure out how to turn off this TV
      G                Em                Bm
I'm glad you made the visit, and if you think you have a minute
            Am            D/F#             G
You should sit and talk until it's time to leave

       G             Em          Bm
Is my granddaughter Ruthie still working at the movies?
          G                  Em               Bm
Does she still let all her boyfriends in for free?
          G                      Em                  Bm
Does she still stare out of the front door as she's serving people popcorn
          Am             D/F#                  G        
And talk about how nice today was supposed to be?

Am    C     D              C                         G
Oh oh oh oh oh, that's the love that I came to bear witness to
Am    C     D           C                               G
Oh oh oh oh oh, and the love I'm taking with me when I go

         G             Em          Bm
Did you notice walking over at the house down at the corner
          G             Em                  Bm
There's a dog behind a window that doesn't move
               G              Em                      Bm
I've seen him staring in the mornings, I've seen him staring in the evenings
            Am             D/F#             G
As if time stops until his master's in the room


Am    C     D              C                         G
Oh oh oh oh oh, that's the love that I came to bear witness to
Am    C     D           C                               G
Oh oh oh oh oh, and the love I'm taking with me when I go

       G                   Em                  Bm
Some nights get worse than others, and I start thinking about your mother
          G               Em           Bm
And she's here with me as far as I can tell
          G                  Em              Bm
As if the world revealed its secret and it's asking me to keep it
       Am                 D/F#       G
Like a kid that hears the ocean in a shell

               C                        G
And that's the love that I came to bear witness to
        C                              G
And the love I'm taking with me when I go

Am    C     D    
Oh oh oh oh oh,
Am    C     D     
Oh oh oh oh oh,


Am    C     D              C                         G
Oh oh oh oh oh, that's the love that I came to bear witness to
Am    C     D           C                               G
Oh oh oh oh oh, and the love I'm taking with me when I go

        C                               G
And the love I'm taking with me when I go

I think this is close -- no riffs are explained... but the chords are mostly right..

I believe the chorus goes
Am C/B C G D C/G G
Oh oh oh oh oh, that's the love that I came to bear witness to

I guess I kind of oversimplified that part -- I play it like this but wasn't sure how to show in chords --

Bass Note (thumb): A B C E D
Lyric: Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Chord: Am C D
