G#M                     D#M
I left my country when i was nineteen
G#M   D#M
1925
G#M                          D#M
And drifted to a town on the Cuban coast
G#M                       D#M
Met a woman who became my life
G#M           D#M
And oh when i saw her
G#M           D#M
Darkness fled from me
G#M                      D#M
And flew like a blackbird into the sun
G#M                   D#M
On the day she married me
    G#M    D#M
Dear god
    G#M
Dear god
     G#M            D#M      G#M    D#M
I remember climbing up those shoulders
G#M             D#M       G#M  D#M
Coming up under you like a lion
G#M        D#M      G#M    D#M
Coming down like we were dying
       G#M   D#M
Dear god
G#M         D#M       G#M      D#M
But now the drumbirds come for me
G#M         D#M       G#M     D#M
Oh now the drumbirds come for me
G#M         D#M
Lord give me forgiveness
G#M             D#M
For all that i've done
G#M                   D#M
Forgive me now of the weight i bear
    G#M          D#M
Don't keep me on the run
       G#M   D#M
Dear god
       G#M   D#M
Dear god
      G#M           D#M      G#M    D#M
I remember climbing up those shoulders
G#M             D#M       G#M  D#M
Coming up under you like a lion
G#M        D#M      G#M    D#M
Coming down like we were dying
       G#M
Dear god
