INTRO - Cmaj7   Am7     G    Am7    C    G
G
Young and strong Hollywood son
Am
in the early morning light
         C             G
this star fell down on Sunset Boulevard 
G
young and strong beautiful one
Am
we embraced so close
      C
is gone
          G
was torn away 
        D
let the youth of America mourn
  C
include him in their prayers
     D
let his image linger on
  C
repeat it everywhere 

Cmaj7   Am7

     Cmaj7                   Am7
with candles, with flowers
       Cmaj7    Am7
he was one of ours
Cmaj7         G
       one of ours 
Am7
why don't you let him be?
     C
he's gone

we know
         G
give his mother and his father peace

your vulture's candor

your casual slander
    Am
you murder his memory
     C
he's gone

we know
     G
it's nothing but a tragedy 
D
lay to rest your soul and body
C
lay beside your name
D
lay to rest your rage
              C
your hunger and amazing grace 
     Cmaj7                   Am7
with candles, with flowers
        Cmaj7     Am7
you were one of ours
Cmaj7        G
      one of ours 
      Cmaj7          Am
I saw cameras expose your life
        Cmaj7        Am7
I heard rumors explode with lies
      Cmaj7
I saw children in tears
Am11                        D
cry and crowd around the sight
                    C
of where you had collapsed that day
            D
where your last breath and word
         C
had been sighed
           D
where your heart had burst
              C
where you had died 
           D
Where you had died
                C
Where you had died


                    D
I saw how they were lost in grieving
                       C
all half believing you were gone
       D
Oh the loss and pain of it

crime and shame of it
C
you were gone
              D
it was such a nightmare raving,

"how could we save him
C
from himself?"

Repeat and fade
