[Verse 1]
  G                         C
Spirit of my silence I can hear you
                      D
But I’m afraid to be near you
              C    G        C
And I don’t know where to begin
              Bm   G        C
And I don’t know where to begin
  G                                C
Somewhere in the desert there’s a forest
               D
And an acre before us
              C    G        C
But I don’t know where to begin
              Bm   G        C
But I don’t know where to begin

[Bridge 1]
                                 D
Again I’ve lost my strength completely,
       C
oh be near me,
 G          C                         Bm       G      C
Tired old mare with the wind in your hair


[Verse 2]
  G                          C
Amethyst and flowers on the table,
                 D
is it real or a fable?
           C       G           C
Well I suppose a friend is a friend
            Bm   G             C
And we all know how this will end
  G                                 C
Chimney swift that finds me, be my keeper
                   D
Silhouette of the cedar
              C        G            C
What is that song you sing for the dead?
              Bm       G            C
What is that song you sing for the dead?

[Bridge 2]
                                D
I see the signal searchlight strike me
        C     G      C
in the window of my room
                       Bm       G      C
Well I got nothing to prove
                       Bm       G      C
Well I got nothing to prove

G C D C G C Bm G C

[Verse 3]
  G                           C
I forgive you, mother, I can hear you
                  D
And I long to be near you
           C    G           C
But every road leads to an end
            Bm   G          C
Yes every road leads to an end

[Bridge 3]
                          D
Your apparition passes through me
        C
in the willows:
 G        C                          Bm       G      C
Five red hens—you’ll never see us again
                     Bm       G      C
You’ll never see us again
