D         G              E        A7
 Nobody's up, except the moon and me.
      D        G            D        G

 Apricot tips in an indigo sky.
       D          G                D         G
I been lovin' you Rosie, since the day I was born,

I'll love ya Rosie, 'till the day I  die.

great job, perfect tab. Sounds great and sych0 Ol' 55, is in the key of F#. There isn't even an F# in this song. So I think your a bit confused on this one.
