Subject: Long Live The King   The Byrds   Chords/Words

The Byrds                 Long Live The King        written by David
Crosby

Em                        Bm                G                D
The first thing that they tell you about is that you will be king
Em                                  G              D
A priest at least they tell you and then that everything will be
  A
alright at last
                                   Em
You will finally be cast into your rightful throne
                     Bm  Em
They got it all down cold
Em                   Bm          G             D
Next thing that they tell you is not to be afraid
                 Em                     G                 D
You think you're better than the others somewhat fine and brave
           A
They lead astray  you could be up there all alone

A star they say  a million miles away from home
   G               F                 Em
An empty space is that the place you wanted
Em                       Bm                  G               D
The last thing that they tell you about they ask you will it hurt
          Em                        G                       D
They said sell what you can boy get out while the getting's good
    A
And they whisper in the evening  all around town
A
Oh humpty dumpty the king is falling down

The Byrds         Sweet Mary               written by  McGuinn/Levy

Dm              C         Dm
Sweet Mary I've got to be leaving
                   C        G
Oh I can't let you into my life
        Dm            C      Dm                            C         G
A7
Cause I know it would end in grieving and the last thing I need is a
wife
       Dm
When I met I met you for pleasure
                      C            G
And the good times of running around
         Dm            C         Dm
Then you seemed to be so understanding
                             C          G         A7
>From the weight that's  been draggin me down
    Dm             C              Dm
The good times are coming between us
                         C              G
Though you  helped me I'm carrying   my load
         Dm         C           Dm                            C
G  A7
And I've never felt more like a lover  but I'm running  right off the
road
      Dm        C         Dm
Sweet Mary I've got to be leaving
                   C        G
Oh I can't let you into my life
        Dm            C      Dm                            C         G
A7
Cause I know it would end in grieving and the last thing I need is a
wife
        Dm          C         Dm
Oh it's nothing you said  or invited
                      C            G
And it's nothing  you did that was wrong
     Dm     C         Dm                    C            G         A7
Our love together was heaven but I promised myself to be strong
      Dm        C         Dm
Sweet Mary I've got to be leaving
                   C        G
Oh I can't let you into my life
        Dm            C      Dm                            C         G
A7
Cause I know it would end in grieving and the last thing I need is a
wife

The Byrds      Cowgirl In The Sand             written by  Neil Young

E                    C#m   E                      C#m
Hello cowgirl in the sand  is this place at your command
E     B         A     B     E     B        A           B
Can I stay here for  awhile can I see your sweet sweet smile
F#m G#m           E           A
Old enough now to change your name
     F#m     G#m         E       A
When so many love you is it the same
         F#m                                 E         A
It's the woman in you that makes you want to play this game
E                 C#m   E                      C#m
Hello ruby in the dust  has your band began to rust
E     B       A         B   E     B           A         B
After all the sin we've had I was hoping that we'd turn back
F#m G#m           E           A^?
Old enough now to change your name
     F#m     G#m         E       A
When so many love you is it the same
         F#m                                 E         A
It's the woman in you that makes you want to play this game
E                 C#m    E                      C#m
Hello woman of my dreams is this not the way it seems
E      B          A         B
Purple words on a gray back ground
E       B            A          B
To be a woman and to be turned down
F#m G#m           E           A
Old enough now to change your name
     F#m     G#m         E      A
When so many love you is it the same
         F#m                                 E         A      E   C#m
E
It's the woman in you that makes you want to play this game

The Byrds  Things Will Be Better  written by  Chris Hillman
                                              Dallas Taylor

G                 D
Things will be better now
C            D         G
Don't ask me why don't ask me how
                        D
And both of us feel the same way
           C          D                 G
What we're feeling inside we just can't seem to say
      A
Cause misunderstanding is the cause of it all
                                      D
Take you to the top just to watch you fall
G                         D
Some time it's lonely and cold
            C        D       G
When you're so far away from home
                          D
Confusion can lead you astray
     C               D        G
It's just a terrible price to pay
   A
I bought you some books I dressed you up real fine
                                       D
Go and live your life just let me live mine
