Song For Adam  -  Jackson Browne
 
Though [Am] Adam was a [G] friend of mine, 
I [F] did not know him well
He was [C] alone in his exist [Am] ence,  
[G] He was deep into [F] his well
 
I could [C] guess what he was [Am] laughing at, 
But I [F] couldn't really tell
 Now the [Am] story's  told [G]that Ad [Am]am jumped, 
[G]But I'm [F] thinking that he [Am]fell
 
 [Am]Together we went[G]traveling, 
as [F]we received the call
 His[C]destination [Am] India, 
and [G]I had none at [F] all
 
Well I [C] still remember [Am] laughing, 
with our [F] backs against the wall
So free of [Am] fear [G] we never [Am] thought, 
that [G] one of us might [F] fall
 
[F] I sit before my only  [C] candle, 
but it's [F] so little light to find my [C]way
Now this [F] story unfolds before my [Am] candle
Which is [C] shorter every hour as it  [G] reaches for the day
Well I [Am] feel just like a candle in a [G] way
I guess I'll [F] get there 
but I wouldn't [C] say [F] for sure [C] [G] [Am]
 
 [Am] When we parted we were[G]  laughing still, 
as [F]  our goodbyes were said
 And I [C] never heard from [Am] him again, 
as [G] each our lives we [F]  led
 
[C] except for once in [Am] someone else's 
[F] letter that I read
Until I [Am]  heard the [G] sudden word, 
that a [Am] friend of mine was [F] dead
 
[F] I sit before my only  [C] candle, 
but it's [F] so little light to find my [C] way
Now this [F] journey appears before my [Am] candle
Which is [C] shorter every hour as it  [G] reaches for the day
Well I [Am] feel just like a candle in a [G] way
I guess I'll [F] get there 
but I wouldn't [C] say [F]  for sure [C] [G] [Am]
 
Though [Am] Adam was a [G] friend of mine, 
I [F] did not know him long
And when I [C] stood myself [Am]  beside him, 
I never [G] thought I was as [F] strong
still it [C] seemed he stopped his[Am]  singing 
in the [G]  middle of his [F] song
well I'm [Am]  not the one to [G] say I know 
but I'm [F] hoping he was [Am] wrong
 
[F] I'm holding out my only [C] candle, 
though it's [F] so little light to find my  [C] way
now this [F] story's been laid beneath my [Am]  candle
Which is [C] shorter every hour as it  [G] reaches for the day
yes I [Am] feel just like a candle in a [G] way
I guess I'll [F] get there
 but I wouldn't [C] say [F]  for sure [C] [G] [Am]

The chords are wrong in some places. The second chord in the verse should be C/G. See the tab on Songster.
