[INTRO] 

A | D | C#m | Bm - A/C# | D | Bm - A/C# | D 


A                          D                              C#m
Spirit of my silence I can hear you, but I'm afraid to be near you
            Bm    A/C#      D

And I don't know where to begin
            Bm    A/C#      D

And I don't know where to begin


A                                  D                  C#m
Somewhere in the desert there's a forest, and an acre before us
             Bm   A/C#        D

But I don't know where to begin
             Bm   A/C#        D

But I don't know where to begin
                             C#m            Bm         A/C#   D

Again I lost my strength completely, or be near me tired old mare
                        Bm      A/C#      D

With the wind in your hair


(SAME CHORD SEQUENCE THROUGHOUT THE REST OF THE SONG) 


Amethyst and flowers on the table, is it real or a fable?

Well I suppose a friend is a friend

And we all know how this will end


Chimney swift that finds me be my keeper, silhouette on the seater

What is that song you sing for the dead

What is that song you sing for the dead

I see the signal searchlight strike me, in the window of my room

Well I got nothing to prove

Well I got nothing to prove

[Piano Solo] (SAME AS INTRO)

I forgive you mother I can hear you, and I long to be near you

But every road leads to an end

Yes every road leads to an end

Your aberration passes through me, in the willows and five red hens

You'll never see us again

You'll never see us again

excellent tab, but it should go:

C#m Bm A/C# D

Again I lost my strength completely, or be near me tired old mare
A/C# Bm A/C# D

With the wind in your hair

(another shift to the A chord before "in your hair")

Thanks! Great tab. Such a sweet song.

A couple things I like to do:

-I like adding the thumb strike in twice as often.
-I like playing the 2nd Bm in the progression with an open first string. xxx430
-I think the silhouette was probably on the ceder, rather than on the seater :-)
