                                  Am    = x02210

The D - Dsus4 - D - Dsus2 riff, and the asterixed chords
are to simulate a little of what the mellotron is playing,
to add a little bit more interest to a solo performance.

    Nights in white satin,     never reaching the end,
C                  G     F                    Em 
   Letters I've written,    never meaning to send,

    Beauty I'd always missed,
