Upon this street where time has died,
D                          (G5)
The golden treat you never tried.
D                             (G5)
In times of old, in days gone by,
D                             (G5)
If I could catch your dancing eye.

The story's told the dark has won.

VERSE 3:
D                            (G5)
I felt the wind shout like a drum,
D                                    (G5)
You said, "My friend, love's end has come.”,

You drained it all to the last drop.

On this dark street the sun is black,

The winter life is coming back.
D                             (G5)
On this dark street it's cold inside,
D                                   (G5)
There's no retreat from time that's died.

NOTES:
1.  A small tribute to Jack Bruce on the first anniversary of his passing 
on October 25, 2014, Suffolk, UK to that big recording studio in the sky.
2.  As this is in ‘Open D’, my advice is to experiment as much as possible 
with the variants of the chords to create interesting harmonies.
3.  This my interpretation of the original studio accompaniment and I trust that it does
the acoustic chords, justice.  It is quite different to the standard tuning of 
Cream’s 'Albert Hall' performance in 2005.
