Forever Changes Album Tab - Love

*This is not my original work, just a compilation of Andrew Rogers'
already-published tabs for every song on this wonderful album.
I just felt that there should be an album tab for reading simplicity.

    Someone asks you,   you can call my name

[repeat intro pattern 2X]

Verse 2:

    You are just a thought that someone
    Somewhere somehow feels you should be here
    And it's so for real to touch
    To smell, to feel, to know where you are here
    And the streets are paved with gold and if
    Someone asks you, you can call my name
    You can call my name
                          Em    C   Am   D

[repeat intro]

Verse 3:

    By the time that I'm through singing
    The bells from the schools of walls will be ringing
    More confusions, blood transfusions
    The news today will be the movies for tomorrow
    And the water's turned to blood, and if
    You don't think so
    Go turn on your tub
    And it it's mixed with mud
    You'll see it turn to gray
    And you can call my name
    I hear you call my name

    / / / /

Verse 1:

    D
    I once knew a man
    Em          A            F
    Been everywhere in the world
                    Em
    Gave me a tiny ivory ball
    F#m             B       G
    Said it would bring me good
    Cm                  G     Bm
    Never believed it would until
                  C        Bbsus2 [x13311]
    I have been loving you

Verse 2:

    Dear old man

    Gave me a piece of good advice
    Said it would do me well
    I couldn't really tell until
    I have been loving you

Bridge:

    Now it seems
    Things are not so strange
    I can see more clearly

    Suddenly I've found my way
                              F#m
    I know the old man would laugh
                         B      G   /F#
    He spoke of love's sweeter days
    Em          A        F
    And in his eloquent way
    Bbm                         F
    I think he was speaking of you
    Am
    You are so lovely
                               D
    You didn't have to say a thing

Verse 3:

    But I remember that old man
    Telling me he'd seen the light
    Gave me a small brown leather book
    Insisted that he was right
    Cm                 G
    I only heard him slightly
    Bm         Cm         G
       'Til I heard you whisper
    C           Bm     Cm     G    Bm  Bbsus2
       Took you up all in my arms

Verse 1:

              D                       C
    Well I remember when you used to look so good
           D                     C                  D   C   D   C
    And I did everything that I possibly could for you
                D               C
    We used to ride around all over town
                 D                    C                D   C   D   C
    But they're puttin' you down for bein' around with me
                E               G/D  E
    But you can go ahead if you want to

    'Cause I ain't got no papers on you

Verse 2:

    In the middle of the summer I had a job bein' a plumber
    Just to pass till the fall it was you I wanna ball all day
    Ah-we were walkin' along, honey, hand in hand
    I'm a-thinkin' of you, mama, when you're thinkin' of another man
    But you can go ahead if you want to
    'Cause I ain't got no papers on you
    (No, I don't   I ain't got no papers on myself)

    (guitar solo over D-C intro riff [8X])

Verse 3:

    All alone on the bone when I didn't have a home
    When I saw the way I was and I knew where I was supposed to be
    I was twitchin' so I turned and it's really hard to learn
    That everyone I saw was just another part of me
    But you can go ahead if you want to
    'Cause nobody's got no papers on you
    (No, babe, it's just a falsehood)

    -----------------|-----------------|

Verse 1:

    B7addE [as per intro]
    Where are you walking, I've seen you walking
    Have you been there before?    [cello: A -> F#]
    Walk down your doorsteps, you'll take some more steps
    What did you take them for?

               A             G6                [A: x77650   G6: x55430]
    There's a private in my boat and he wears
     D               C             E
    Pins instead of medals on his coat
                A            G6
    There's a chicken in my nest and she won't
     D              C            E
    Lay until I've given her my best

              B7
    At her request she asks for nothing
             E
    You get nothing in return
            B7
    If you want she brings you water
            E                   B
    If you don't then you will burn

[repeat intro riff, 4X w/bass each time]

Verse 2:

    You go through changes, it may seem strange
    Is this what you're put here for?
    You think you're happy and you are happy
    That's what you're happy for

    There's a man who can't decide if he should
    Fight for what his father thinks is right
    There are people wearing frowns who'll screw you up
    But they would rather screw you down

    At my request I ask for nothing
    You get nothing in return
    If you're nice she'll bring me water
    If you're not then I will burn

[repeat intro]

Verse 1:

    Fmaj7                               Cmaj7
    This is the time and life that I am living
              E                     G
    And I'll face each day with a smile
             D                                  G
    For the time that I've been given's such a little while
             D                                G
    And the things that I must do consist of more than style
                  Fmaj7            Am G
    [1: There are places that I am going
     4: There'll be time for you to start all over]

Verse 2:

    This is the only thing that I am sure of
    And that's all that lives is gonna die
    And there'll always be some people here to wonder why
    And for every happy hello, there will be good-bye
    There'll be time for you to put yourself on

[repeat horn break]

Verse 3:

    Everything I've seen needs rearranging
    And for anyone who thinks it's strange
    Then you should be the first to want to make this change
    And for everyone who thinks that life is just a game
    Do you like the part you're playing
