Tuning: DADDAD Capo: 1 D: 000000 F#m: 444000 G: 555000 A: 777000 D F#m G D - G - D D F#m G D Well, he jumps in a taxi for the sky, he's off to slay some demon dragonfly D F#m G D And he looks at me that long last time, turns away again and I wave goodbye A G D In an envelope inside his coat is a chain I wore around my throat A G A Along with a note I wrote that says, "I love you but I don't even know why D G D A But darling I wish you well, on your way to the wishing well A G A D G D Swinging off of those gates of hell, but I can tell how hard you're trying D G D A I just had this secret hope, though sometimes all we'd do is cope A G A D G D That somewhere on the steepest slope, there'd be an endless rope and nobody crying" Well the long night turns into a couple long years Of me walking around and round this trail of tears With the very loud voices of my own fears ringing and ringing in my ears It says that love is long gone, every move I make is all wrong Says you never gave a damn for me or anything for anyone But darling I wish you well on your way to the wishing well Swinging off of those gates of hell, but I can tell how hard you're trying I just had this secret hope, though sometimes all we'd do is cope That somewhere on the steepest slope, there'd be an endless rope and nobody crying D A G D May you dream you are dreaming in a warm, soft bed A G D And may the voices inside you that fill you with dread A G D Make the sound of thousands of angels instead A G A Tonight where you might be laying your head But darling I wish you well, on your way to the wishing well Swinging off of those gates of hell, but I can tell how hard you're trying I still have that secret hope though sometimes all we do is cope That somewhere on the steepest slope, there's an endless rope, and nobody's crying
