CAPO: 2nd Fret



[Intro]
Em

[Verse 1]

Well, I'll be damned
                C
Here comes your ghost again
                 G
But that's not unusual
                   D
It's just that the moon is full
                    Em
And you happened to call


[Verse 2]

And here I sit
            C
Hand on the telephone
          G
Hearing a voice I'd known
            D
A couple of light years ago
                Em
Heading straight for a fall


[Verse 3]

As I remember your eyes
                C
Were bluer than robin's eggs
              G
My poetry was lousy, you said
               D
"Where are you calling from?"
                Em
"A booth in the Midwest"


[Verse 4]

Four years ago
                  C
I bought you some cufflinks
               G
You brought me something
                  D
We both know what memories can bring
                        Em
They bring diamonds and rust


[Verse 5]

Well, you burst on the scene
          C
Already a legend
            G
The unwashed phenomenon
             D
The original vagabond
                    Em
You strayed into my arms


[Verse 6]

And there you stayed
            C
Temporarily lost at sea
                G
The Madonna was yours for free
                     D
Yes, the girl on the half-shell
                 Em
Could keep you unharmed


[Bridge]
      Bm
Now I see you standing with brown leaves falling around
    D
And snow in your hair
           Bm
Now you're smiling out the window
                          D
Of that crummy hotel over Washington Square
    C
Our breath comes out white clouds
                         G
Mingles and hangs in the air
         F
Speaking strictly for me
                       G             B7  Em
We both could have died then and there_____


[Verse 7]

Now you're telling me
              C
You're not nostalgic
                     G
Then give me another word for it
               D
You who are so good with words
                      Em
And at keeping things vague


[Verse 8]

'Cause I need some of that vagueness now
                C
It's all coming back too clearly
             G
Yes, I once loved you dearly
                          D
And if you're offering me diamonds and rust
             Em
I've already paid___
