VERSE 1
G
Things are crashing down
     G
She's all too tight
     F
In my neighborhood
              Am
She cried both day and night
            G            C/G G   C/G G
I know it because it was there


VERSE 2
       G        C/G G 
It's a milestone
          F
But she's down on her luck
        Am
And the day makes her lonely
       G               C/G C     C/G G     G  C/G G 
But to make it hard to buck, now and then


CHORUS 1
  C
I believe that she'd stop him
       Em
If she would start to care
    F
I believe that she'd look upon
    C/G               C
His side that used to care
        Em
And I'd go by the Lord
               F
Anywhere she's on my way
              G           C/G G   C/G G 
But I don't belong there


VERSE 3
     G 
No I don't belong to her
          F
I don't belong to anybody
         Am
She's my Christ-forsaken angel
              G            C/G G
But she don't hear me cry


VERSE 4
        G
She's a lone-hearted mystic
        F
And she can't carry on
         Am
When I'm there, she's all right
          G            C/G G   C/G G
But she's not when I'm gone


CHORUS 2
       C
Heaven knows that the answer
          Em
She’s not calling no one
          F
She's the way, forsaken beauty
          C
For she's mine, for the one
      C
And I lost her, hesitation
       Em
By temptation as it runs
        Fmaj7 
But she don't holler me
            G          C/G G   C/G G
But I'm not there, I'm gone


VERSE 5
         G
Now I'll cry tonight
       F
Like I cried the night before
        Am
And I'm knees on the hassle
         G
But I'll dream about the door


VERSE 6
        G
It's so long, she's forsaken
       F
By her faith, worse to tell
         Am
It don't have condonation
    G       C/G  G    C/G  G
She smiles, fare thee well


CHORUS 3
         C
Now when I treat to leave 'er
      Em
I was born to love her
        F
But she knows that the kingdom waits
   C
So high above her
      C
And I run a better race
         Em
But it's not too fast still
      Fmaj7
But I don't perceive her
        G          C/G G   C/G G 
I'm not there, I'm gone


VERSE 7 (variation)
          G
Well it's all about diffusion
      G
And I cry for her veil
        F
I don't need anybody now
  Am
Beside me to tell


VERSE 8 (variation)
         G
And it's all affirmation
    G
I receive but it's not
        F
She's a lone-hearted beauty
        Am
But she don't like a spot
        G    C/G G  C/G G
And she calls


CHORUS 4
            C
Yeah, she's gone like the rain
          Em
Below the shining yesterday
    F
But now she's home beside me
        C
And I'd like her here to stay
        C
She's a lone, forsaken beauty
       Em
And it don't trust anyone
      F
And I wish I was beside her
        G              C/G G   C/G G
But I'm not there, I'm gone


VERSE 9
           G
Well, it's too hard to stay here
      F
And I don't want to leave
        Am
It's so bad, for so few
                 G
See, but she's a heart too hard to need


VERSE 10
      G
It's alone, it's a crime
            F
The way she mauls me around
        Am
But she don't fall to hate me
              G               C/G G   C/G G
But tears are gone, a painted clown


CHORUS 5
         C
Yes, I believe that it's rightful
        Em
Oh, I believe it in my mind
          F                            C
I've been told like I said one night before carry on the cryin'
        C
And the sole gypsy told her
       Em
Like I said, carry on
             F
I wish I was there to help her
            G          C/G G   C/G G   C/G G   C/G G
But I'm not there, I'm gone
