Song: Even In the Quietest Moments
Artist: Supertramp; words and music by Rick Davies and Roger Hodgson
Album: Even In the Quietest Moments (Track 3)
Year: 1977

The previous version was incomplete. This version contains all the lyrics and 
chords. I do not know
the picking pattern for the guitar during the verses, chorus, or bridge so I did 
not include it, I 
included the chords for strumming (rhythm).

Chords:
D6sus4:    X-X-0-7-8-7
Dmaj7sus2: X-X-0-9-10-9
D7:        X-X-0-5-7-5
G/D:       X-X-0-4-3-3
Gm/D:      X-X-0-3-3-3
Am:        X-0-2-2-1-0
D9:        X-5-X-5-5-2  or  X-5-4-5-5-X
Dm:        X-X-0-2-3-1
D:         X-X-0-2-3-2
Cadd9:     X-3-2-0-3-0    (Note: a regular C chord works fine instead)

\* = begin strumming
*/ = end strumming (start picking again)


[Intro and Verse Pattern]

(continue through verse after intro in same pattern)

[Verse 1]

D6sus4          Dmaj7sus2
Even in the quietest moments,
D7       G/D
I wish I knew,
D7            G/D        Gm/D
what I had to do.

D6sus4              Dmaj7sus2    
And even though the sun is shining,
D7               G/D
well, I feel the rain,
D7            G/D
hear it comes again,
   Gm/D   
dear.


\*  Am                  D9
And even when you showed me,
   Am                   D9
my heart was out of tune,
              Dm                         
for there's a shadow of doubt 
Am                     Cadd9                  D
that's not letting me find you to soon.

    Am                D9
The music that you gave me,
    Am                D9
the language of my soul,
        Dm                         
Lord I wanna be with you, won't you 
Am                       Cadd9                D    Cadd9    D
let me come in from the cold?


[Chorus 1]

Cadd9                   D
      Don't you let the sun fade away,
Cadd9                   D
      don't you let the sun fade away,
Cadd9                     D
      don't you let the sun be leaving,
          Cadd9      D      */
won't you come to me soon?


[Verse 2]

D6sus4          Dmaj7sus2
Even though the stars are listening,
D7             G/D
and the oceans deep,
D7           G/D     Gm/D
I just go to sleep.

D6sus4        Dmaj7sus2
And then I create the silent movie,
D7             G/D
you become the star,
D7               G/D
is that what you are,
   Gm/D
dear?

\*   Am               D9
Your whisper tells a secret,
     Am                   D9
your laughter brings me joy,
      Dm                    
and a wonder of feeling I'm 
Am                  Cadd9                 D
nature's own little boy.

    Am                      D9
But still the tears keep falling,
        Am                  D9
they're raining from the sky.
               Dm
Well there's a lot of me got go 
Am                 Cadd9                  D    Cadd9   D
under before I get high.


[Chorus 2]

Cadd9                   D
      Don't you let the sun disappear,
Cadd9                   D
      don't you let the sun disappear,
Cadd9                   D
      don't you let the sun be leaving,
        Cadd9        D
no, you come to me soon.


[Bridge]

     Cadd9                D
And can't be leaving my life.
             Cadd9                 D
Say that you won't be leaving my life.
              Cadd9                   D
Say won't you please, say won't you please.
               Cadd9                  D
Lord won't you come and get into my life?
              Cadd9                   D
Say won't you please, say won't you please,
               Cadd9               D      */
oh, Lord don't go...


[Verse 3]

D6sus4            Dmaj7sus2
And even when the song is over,
D7           G/D
where have I been,
D7            G/D      Gm/D
was it just a dream?

D6sus4             Dmaj7sus2
And though your door is always open,
D7         G/D
where do I begin,
D7                G/D
may I please come in,
  Gm/D
dear.

NOTE: Strum last chord slow; each note should sound out individually, not as a whole.
