D                       Am               F              G
Time the greens (?) and pick up screams alone above the square,
Bb C       Bb    F
Whoa, sing softly
D                     Am                F              G
Above the trees where Billy breathes we float upon the air,
Bb C  Eb   Bb
Whoa, whoa (whoa)

F      Dmi7       C  Bb  F      Dmi7       Eb Bb
Softly sing sweet songs, Softly sing sweet songs,
F      Dmi7       C  Bb Am Gm  Bb   Am   D
Softly sing sweet songs______, oooooooh

D               Am                 F                   G
Silent scenes, emotion beams, I'll wake you when we're there,
Bb C       Bb    F
Whoa, sing softly
D                Am               F                G
Time it seems in broken dreams to sleep beside the stair,
Bb C  Eb    Bb
Whoa, whoa (whoa)

F      Dmi7       C  Bb  F      Dmi7       Eb Bb
Softly sing sweet songs, Softly sing sweet songs,
F      Dmi7       C  Bb Am Gm  C    Bb
Softly sing sweet songs______, oooooooh

The theremin (or whatever it is) solo goes something like this:

Eb  Bb  F   Cm  Ab  Bb  Db  Eb
Gb  Db  Ab  Cm  Ab  Bb  Db  Eb

Then the chorus again:

F      Dmi7       C  Bb  F      Dmi7       Eb Bb
Softly sing sweet songs, Softly sing sweet songs,
F      Dmi7       C  Bb  F      Dmi7       Eb Bb
Softly sing sweet songs, Softly sing sweet songs,
F      Dmi7       C  Bb Am Gm  C    Bb Eb F  D (loud)
Softly sing sweet songs______, oooooooh

Someone else figure out the guitar solo! I'm not sure I have the lyrics right here,
but the chords sound pretty good...
