A   G   D   A   E   GM7


A              Em7                 D             A

Just yesterday morning they let me know you were gone.

              E                      GM7

Suzannne, the plans they made put an end to you.

A                 Em7           D               A

I walked out this morning and I wrote down this song.

               E             GM7

I just can't remember who to send it to.



D D/C#      Bm7      Bm7/E     A  Asus4  A

  I've seen fire and I've seen rain.

I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end.

I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend.

      G      D6/F#            E7/B    Asus4  A9

But I always thought that I'd see you again.


Won't you look down upon me, Jesus. You've got to help me make a stand.

You've just got to see me through another day.

My body's aching and my time is at hand.

And I won't make it any other way.




Been walking my mind to an easy time, my back turned towards the sun.

Lord knows when the cold wind blows it'll turn you head around.

Well, there's hours of time on the telephone line

To talk about things to come.

Sweet dreams and flying machines in pieces on the ground.
