            # Enjoy playing this on guitar, but I think the original song
# is on a ukulele. If you want to try it on the uke, here's 
# how to do the chord shapes I think R. Hunter plays on it:

A   Amaj7       Dmaj7         E
You told me the rain would be coming
A        Amaj7      Dmaj7        E
Down, so I stayed inside with my bottle
  A                     Amaj7
I heard what you said, I always hear
             Dmaj7            E
I just don't learn so good, I know I should listen more
A         Amaj7 Dmaj7  E
Carefully, more carefully

D6           E               A      Asus2
You said our love was like a bonsai tree
D6     E                A     Amaj7
And of course, you were right
D6              E               A    Asus2
Oh, that's why, darling, it's a tragedy
   E                              D6
To find me drawing bonsai trees tonight

A                  Amaj7                    Dmaj7   E
Oh how the light reflected off you when you came to me
   A            Amaj7  Dmaj7          E
Ya floated like Mary into my darkened room
        A                      Amaj7       Dmaj7           E
We were there once things were fine, I was yours, you were mine
          A           Amaj7       Dmaj7          E
We had it all, it was ours, oh my god, below the stars

             D6          E              A      Asus2
And then you told me our love is like a bonsai tree
D6    E             A     Amaj7
And I knew you were right
D6              E               A    Asus2
Oh, that's why, darling, it's a tragedy
   E                              D6
To find me drawing bonsai trees tonight
