Set You Free This Time chords
The Byrds *


The first thing that I heard you say when you were standing there
                             Bm   D   A
Set in your way was that you were not blind
You were sure to make a fool of me cause there was nothing there
                                   Bm   D    A
That you could see that could go beyond your mind
Now who's standing at the door remembering the days before
    E7     E         D
And asking please be kind?
         A                           E            A
It isn't how it was set up to be but I've set you free this time

I have never been so far out in front that I could ever ask for what I want
    Bm      D   A
And have it any time
Knowing this you found a thought for me that told you just what I should be
    Bm      D       A
And there I stood behind
With all the ones that went before and memories that always seems to
E7      E       D
Tear me from my mind
            A                            E            A
In front of what it is you seem me to be I've set you free this time

I could never find a chance to choose between a way to win or a
                Bm          D        A
thing to lose because there was your stand
On top of all the love you took
                                         Bm    D       A
There was only something you can look at lying in your hand
Now who's wondering what has changed and why it can not be arranged
   E7        E          D
To have each thing work fine
         A                           E            A
It isn't how it was set up to be but I'll set you free this time

D Bm  A . . .

Not a correction exactly, but an addendum. The Roger McGuinn guitar work on the D chord is: index finger on the B string at the second fret, damp the G string, third finger on the D string, third fret; then slide your third finger along the D string up to the fifth fret, with your fourth finger on the B string below it also at the fifth fret. Then you slide both fingers from there up to the seventh fret. Also, am I wrong or does it sound better to hit an Eminor chord on "I've set you free"? I cannot tell by looking at the video of their performance, but it does sound right to me.
