Words

[Intro]

I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don't know why nobody told you
How to unfold your love
I don't know how someone controlled you
They bought and sold you

I look at the world and I notice it's turning
While my guitar gently weeps
With every mistake we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don't know how you were diverted
You were perverted too
I don't know how you were inverted
No one alerted you

I look from the wings at the play you are staging
While my guitar gently weeps
As I'm sitting here doing nothing but aging
Still my guitar gently weeps

Do you think you could tab out the rest of the song as well. That would be great. I'm talking about the "I don't know why..." part.

Thank you for submiting this tab, ive been searching for an acoustic tb of the demo on anthology 3. Its a great tab but I wish you had submited a tab for the last section of the song.
