Great song by a great band

Intro

Verse

Said her name was marie
	 D (ring)
From the banks of the lee
			G (ring)
With the prettiest eyes my own had ever seen
	Bm (ring)			A (ring)
Her hair like ripples
      D (ring)
They danced with the tide
		         G (ring)
As our hearts washed away to the sea
	D (ring)		A (ring)	   D (ring)
Was she sent down from the heavens above
	  D		       G
Her breath pure as whiskey my heart fell in love
      D				Bm
Now the devil is courtin' a different tune
	D			    G
And I laugh as the tears wash the rain
         D		    A		  D

Tell me why no one`s listenin?
	G	         D
Is there nothing at all left to say
	A		     D
In a world so unforgiving
       G		    D
You mean more to me each every day
	   A			   Bm
So may the living be dead in our wake
G	      D	       A 		D

D, G, D, A, D

One cold winters night behind the clouds stars did hide
       D						  G
And the ghost of our souls thanking Christ we're alive
	Bm			    		 A
Our spirits they crackled with lovers first sight
      D			       		G
Till the mornin' came fresh with a new
	D	        A		  D
Will you dance with me now heavens child sang the clown
	D	G
We`ve nothing left to lose but your wings and my frown
	D	Bm
Where over the hills where the valleys will ring
	D				  G
To the sound of our love singin' true
	D	   A		D

Tell me why no one`s listenin?
	G	         D
Is there nothing at all left to say
	A		     D
In a world so unforgiving
       G		    D
You mean more to me each every day
	   A			   Bm
So may the living be dead in our wake
G	      D	       A 		D

D, G, Bm, A.
D, G, D, A, D

But the summer sun is melting now
	Bm		A
With the leaves i`ll soon be gone
	G		     D
Will you have the strength when the emptiness
		  D		      A
Shadows fall
	  G
Or will your aching heart be ripped apart
	Bm		A
By the beating from the storm
G	D
Or will howling gales like yesterdays be gone
D	A	G
Yeah be gone... be gone
A

D, G, Bm, A.
