C Am C Am F G

[Verse 1]
C              Am
I met you at a party
C               Am
or on a crowded street
C               Am
a silent singularity 
     F                   G
when glances chanced to meet

    C              Am
You looked into my glasses
C                Am
said you'd seen a ghost
C                Am
tried my best to make you smile
   F               G
as we calypsoed close


C              Am
I had been to Cleveland
C              Am
You had been to jail
C              Am
You seemed to be recovering
 F                    G
but I felt a little pale


C                   Am
Our house it was on seventeenth
C                  Am
above the hardware store
C                   Am
there we lived with seven cats
    F                G
all named for seven dwarves

[Chorus]
         F           G
but like leaves and kings
F                C     C
all things must fall
F          G
no diamond ring is gonna 
F               C     C
cut through it all

[Verse 2]
C                      Am
you were working as a graverobber
C                         Am
you could do your job at night
C              Am
I was living hand-to-mouth
     F              G
just looking for a fight

C                   Am
the reason why we parted
C                     Am
it ain't that hard to find
C              Am
I was always busy
    F                  G
and you never had the time

     C                 Am
well the reason why we parted
C                    Am
it ain't that hard to see
C              Am
but I was never sure
     F                G
if I left you or you left me

[Chorus]
        F            G
but like leaves and kings
F                C     C
all things must fall
F           G
no diamond ring is gonna 
F               C
cut through it all

[Instrumental + harmonica]
C Am C Am C Am F G
C Am C Am C Am F G

[Verse 3]
C                   Am
and when it was all over
C                Am
I lost myself in work
C                    Am
you got married to a lawyer
         F               G
painting murals in New York

              C               Am
and though it seems a million miles ago
C              Am
since I saw the light
C                   Am
the hours flowed by nervously
     F               G
like warships in the night

     C                Am
Many times I've been corrupted
C                      Am
but I've never been in love
C              Am
and I began to realize 
     F                   G
that that's just where I was

     C             Am
so I packed up my possessions
C                       Am
and caught an eastbound train
C           Am
met you in Ohio
F               G
sleeping in the rain

[Chorus]
         F         G
but like leaves and kings
F                C     C
all things must fall
F           G
no diamond ring is gonna 
F               C    C
cut through it all

[Verse 4]
C                  Am
so now we're going back again
C                 Am
to start where we began
   C              Am
with rules and regulations 
       F              G
but no real kinda plan

   C                Am
I learned my lesson well
C                  Am
with no mistakes at all
C              Am
once you find yourself true love
   F                   G
you just keep holding on

[Chorus]
           F            G
'cause like leaves and kings
F                C     C
all things must fall
F            G
no diamond ring is gonna 
F               C
cut through it all

[Outro]
        F           G
but now out of the dark
F           G
out of the blue
F                G
like leaves and kings
               F            C
I've fallen in love with you
