From: Dann Butterfield 
Subject: CRD: 'I Never Asked To Be Your Mountain' by Tim Buckley

I Never Asked To Be Your Mountain
(Buckley)

TIM BUCKLEY
From Goodbye And Hello, 1967

The recording is capoed at the first fret:
actual is: D# C# G# F#

Listen to the song for the rhythm, because the chord changes
aren't precise. It's fairly simple, you'll be able figure most
of it out.

D
O I never asked to be your mountain
  C
I never asked to fly
  D
Remember when you came to me
    C
And told me of his lies
    D
You didn't understand my love
    C
You don't know why I try
        D
And the rain was falling on that day
    C
And damn the reason why

    D
The Flying Pisces sails for time
    C
And tells me of my child
D
Wrapped in bitter tales and heartache
   C
He begs for just a smile
     D
O he never asked to be her mountain
   C
He never asked to fly
    D
And through his eye he comes his love
    C
And tells her not to cry

    D
She says, "Your scoundrel father flies
       C
With a dancer called a queen
    D
And with her stolen cards he plays
    C
And laughs, but never wins
      D
O the child dreams to be his hands
       C
In the counting of the rain
    D
But only barren breasts he feels
        C
For her milk will never drain

G          F
As I die I can't remember
G       F
Where I saw the rain
         G
Could it be that her laughter
         F
Drove me down again?
         G
Charming dancer will you stop,
         F
Stop and talk to me?
         G
Is there someone else you feel
        F
In your dreams? you will, you see:
G
In midnight gazes
     F
I've found you far from me
       G
If you lead me on
       F
Please leave me down

  G
O Flying Flying Fish
       F
Please flutter by my door
    G
Yes you can drink my lies
   F
If first you read my eyes:
G
Each one is titled
     F
"I'm drowning back to you";
G
I can't swim your waters
    F
And you can't walk my lands:
    G
I'm sailing all my sins
        F
And I'm climbing all my fears
                  D   C  D  C
And soon now I'll fly

  D
O I never asked to be your mountain
  C
I never asked to fly
  D
Remember when you came to me
    C
And told me of his lies
    D
You didn't understand my love
    C
You don't know why I try
        D
And the rain was falling on that day
    C
And that's the reason why

      D
Sweet lover, will you come back
    C
And love me for a while?
D
Please take my hand
      C
Leave all your fears behind
          D
I've been gone too long
        C
Now I'm home to stay
D
Please don't leave me
 C
Again this way
D               C
Don't leave me again this way...
D       C         D
Sweet lover....O please...
C           D          C                      D
O please....O please...please.... please come home...
            C
Please come home...

etc., etc...
