Judy Collins - Take This Longing



[Intro]
F

[Verse 1]
              C
Many men have loved the bells
    F               C
You fastened to the rein
Am               Dm
And everyone who wanted you
     Am                   G      F     G
They found what they will always want again
     Bm             Em
Your beauty lost to you yourself
Bm                Em
Just as it was to them


[Chorus]
    C                         G
Oh, take this longing from my heart
        C                               G
All the useless things these hands have done
    C                             G   Bm
And let me see your beauty broken down___
               C              G
Like you would do for one you love


[Verse 2]
     F           C
Your body like a searchlight
   F             C
My own poverty revealed
Am                       Dm
I would like to try your charity
  Am          G              F      G
Until you cry, "Now you must try my greed"
Bm               Em
And everything depends upon
    Bm                Em
How near you sleep to me


[Chorus]
    C                         G
Oh, take this longing from my heart
        C                               G
All the useless things these hands have done
    C                             G   Bm
And let me see your beauty broken down___
               C              G
Like you would do for one you love


[Verse 3]
   F            C
As hungry as an archway
        F                     C
Through which the troops have passed
  Am               Dm
I stand in ruins behind you
          Am                      G      F      G
With your winter clothes and your broken sandal straps
  Bm                    Em
I love to see you naked over there
Bm                  Em
Especially from the back


[Chorus]
C                         G
Take this longing from my heart
        C                        G
All the lonely things these hands have done
C                  G   Bm
Untie my blue silk blouse__
             C              G     F  C    G
As you would do for one you love


[Verse 4]
           F              C
Oh, you're faithful to my better self
     F              C
I'm afraid that she left
Am                Dm
Let me judge your love affair
        Am                            G   F   G
In this very room where you sentenced mine to death
Bm                             Em
Look, I'll even wear these old laurel leaves
            Bm               Em
That you've shaken from your head


[Chorus]
C                         G
Take this longing from my heart
        C                              G
All the lonely things these hands have done
C                             G    Bm
Let me see your beauty broken down___
               C              G      C
Like you would do for one you love
                              G
Like you would do for one you love
