[Verse 1]
F
Rain for the last day that I will be known
    D          C            Bb
The way that I want them to know me
F
Rain for reporters' predictable leads
       D         C           Bb
On the darkening stain of my name


[Pre-Chorus 1]
G                         Bb                 F                C
Rain like the morning you left with the international brigade
  G                          Bb                           F 
A streak of your face at the glass when the train pulled away


[Chorus 1]
Bb/D         C/E           F        Bb
     The aspidistra that refused to die
Bb/D             C/E         F         Bb
     A miniature camera in a Cambridge tie
Bb               C         F                     Bb
     To get that Soviet control to crack a smile
Bb         C               F                    
All in our file, my fellow traveller

[Verse 2]
F
Sleep for the telephone's silent receiver 
       D            C           Bb
On its beetle-black back in the hall
F
Sleep for the bottle that rolled off my desk
D             C          Bb
Danced itself out on the floor


[Pre-Chorus 2]
G                        Bb               F                   C
Sleep for the overturned ashtray splayed across an unmade bed
      G                   Bb                    F 
While I interrogate every word that I ever said


[Chorus 2]
Bb/D             C/E            F     Bb
     I fall from buildings into angry air
Bb/D            C/E            F    Bb
     Lecture my students in my underwear
Bb              C              F                    Bb
     But once I was allowed to dream of you instead
Bb        C             F     
My dear defected fellow traveller

[Bridge]
        G                         
How you booked your final passage
       A
With a passport that you paid for with a pair of roller skates
        Bb
How you dyed your hair and mustache
         C
Put on a mid-Atlantic accent but you couldn't stop the shakes

          G
When they asked where you had come from
        A
And you muttered, "That's a good one"
                Bb
Though you were never really certain


[Chorus 3]
Bb/D         C/E            F       Bb
     Every umbrella down on Portman Square
Bb/D           C/E        F          Bb
     Opens and closes to arraign our fair
Bb             C                 F               Bb
     Theory of something I can't picture anymore
Bb        C             G         A
A forgery for my fellow traveller


[Outro]
  Bb            C    
I won't wait to see
            A                C/E
I still I believe in you and me
          F
My fellow traveller
