Standard guitar tuning:EADGBENo capo
CMy Clove she speaks like silenceG, F Without ideals or CviolenceG, F She doesn't have to say she's Cfaithful, Yet she's Dmtrue, like Fice, like Gfire. CPeople carry rosesG, F And make promises by the ChoursG, F My love she laughs like the Cflowers, DmValenGtines can't Cbuy her. CIn the dime stores and bus stations,G F People talk of situCations,G F Read books, repeat quoCtations, Draw concDmlusions Fon the Gwall. CSome speak of the futureG, F My love she speaks CsoftlyG, F She knows there's no success like Cfailure And that Dmfailure's Fno success at Gall. CThe cloak and dagger danglesG, F Madams light the CcandlesG. F In ceremonies of the Chorsemen, Even the Dmpawn must Fhold a Ggrudge. CStatues made of match sticksG, F Crumble into one aCnotherG, F My love winks, she does not Cbother, She knows Dmtoo much to Fargue or to Gjudge. CThe bridge at midnight tremblesG, F The country doctor Crambles,G F Bankers' nieces seek perCfection, Expecting Dmall the gifts that Fwise men Gbring. CThe wind howls like a hammerG, F The night blows cold and CrainyG, F My love she's like some Craven At my Dmwindow with a Fbroken Gwing.
