If I had an old woman

She'd never sell me a lie

It's hard to sing with someone

Who won't sing with you

Give all of my mercy

Give all of my Heart

You come back in my arms

Look like the first line, "Where have all my friends gone?
They've all disappeared" got cut off.

Also, could you include the lyrics to the counter-melody in parentheses maybe?

(oh, and a brief Dsus2/A turnaround, then)

"Stand-by / stand-by / wait around

Now that i'm blue / and blue from now on..."

Lack of accuracy. Tab incomplete. Lyrics are missing in the first verse, doesn't include the turnaround chord before the bridge, doesn't include the counter melody lyrics.
