             capo 1

G
Walking by the river, whole way home
                             C
Put together, summer clothes

Singing loud enough to wake the dead
                                Em
Out of tune and out of breath
                               C
And my head on the wrong way round


G                                   
Every careless word, I take it back
                                         C
My tongue was loose, my tongue was slack

At 10 to 3 I tried to plead
                            Em
My voice got lost in the insistent beat

Left incomplete
                                       C         (B)
Persist with me, eventually I'll come good


G
We used to talk, you used to have me round
I used to sing for you
     C       
But now it's not the same, I sing quietly again
               Em
You shrink my world into a fist
You stay mad and I'll stay pissed
               C               B
And I'll stay here

Every careless word, I take it back
My tongue was loose, my tongue was slack
At 10 to 3 I try to plead
My voice got lost in the insistent beat
Left incomplete
Persist with me, eventually I'll come good

              Em                   D 
You should clasp your hands and pray
                  C
You brought the pain
         Em               D               C     
If you love me lightly, I'd love you the same
     G             /             C    /      / Em   / C
In time

Walking by the river, whole way home
Put together, summer clothes
Singing loud enough to wake the dead
Not enough now that you've left
My head on the wrong way round

             Em                    D
You should clasp your hands and pray
                 C 
You brought the pain
        Em               D                 C            G    /   C    /   Em    C 
If you love me lightly, I'd love you the same
[O the sky could fall tonight on South Street…]
