[Verse]

Am
    There's a grief that can't be spoken.
                           C
There's a pain goes on and on.
                      Dm
Empty chairs at empty tables
         E                  Am
Now my friends are dead and gone.

Am
    Here they talked of revolution.
                          C
Here it was they lit the flame.
                        Dm
Here they sang about `tomorrow'
       E            Am
And tomorrow never came.


[Chorus]

          C    C7      F
From the table in the corner
           Cm7     F7     Bb
They could see a world reborn
          Ab        Ab7    Eb
And they rose with voices ringing
       Bb        A
I can hear them now!
          Dm         Dm7      Bb
The very words that they had sung
   Gm        G7       F
Became their last communion
C                     C6      Am
    On the lonely barricade at dawn.


[Verse]

Am                                            
    Oh my friends, my friends forgive me
                         C
That I live and you are gone.
                               Dm
There's a grief that can't be spoken.
           E               C#m
There's a pain goes on and on.

C#m 
    Phantom faces at the window.
                        E
Phantom shadows on the floor.
                       F#m
Empty chairs at empty tables
           Ab                  C#m
Where my friends will meet no more.

C#m
    Oh my friends, my friends, don't ask me
                         E
What your sacrifice was for
                      F#m
Empty chairs at empty tables
           Ab                 C#m       C#m7       C#m6       C#m
Where my friends will sing no more.

middle section incorrect. Should be G/B not Ab. Goes wrong from there onwards. Other than that, the start is fine
