        acoustic guitar [2X; bass and celeste enter 2nd time]

        D     Em9    Em9/B    Em      C      /G     Em      *
        / / /  / / /   / / /  / / /   / / /  / / /   / / /  / / /
            [xx2032] [x2x032]                               * bass plays B

Verse 1:

                 D          Em9    Em9/B  Em
        There's you you're sleeping over there
        C        /G     Em/B          Em
          Whilst me, I'm sitting here
         D           Em9    Em9/B    Em
        With so much sea between us
        C        /G     Em/B       Em
        I can't make it much more clear

        C             G            F      C
          There'll be no time for crying
        C           G               Asus2  A
          We won't make it more than six
        C         G                 F     C
        I could change my plea to guilty
        C                              D
          But I don't think it would stick


          G                  F               Eb        F+   F
        Still those are the ratings far too easy to despi..ise
                G               F                 Eb
        You've said so much in silence now [1: I truly am 2: indeed I am]
                 F+ F C(-9) C    A              C(-9): x32020

[repeat intro (w/celeste both times)]

Verse 2:

        Let him who fears his heart alone
        Stand up and make a speech
        For him perhaps an emperor's throne
        If he could only speak

        Far too few and far too fallow
        Ashamed I'll heed the cry
        Be with me when I need a drink
        Be with me when I die

[repeat refrain]


        (organ solo over intro chord progression to fade)

-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
