"Crying Guitar"

As  I  watch  you  in  silence

Playing  my  crying  guitar

G g        g     g g  a     b   g
The  wind  whispers  a  gentle  song

Gg       ff        ff          f’       g       e  c
Blackbirds  sleeping

D   d    e       d d  c
As  the  red  moon  rise

Cc    ff      fff     g     f e  c
Spreading  bright  flames

D  d d      e    d e d       c

Along  the  willow  trees

Ddd   c     d        e   d dc



Low  fires  burn  down

E       g d     e        d  c

On  gray  waters

G g*   a   b c a g

Like  the  burning  flames  in  my  heart

G      g       g g*         gg       a     b      g
I  hear  the  cry  of  a  peacock  in  harmony

With  the  melody o
f  my  crying  guitar

g      g  g     f    f           d       e        c

Yes with  the  melody o f  my  crying  guitar

g      g        g     f        f           d       e        c
The  beauty  of  it  all

 D   d   d  e     d   d   c

Made me feel special and proud

g   f  f  f     g    d  d     f  e      c
Moonlight  carries  me  along…

  D d    d    e d      d     d       c



On  the  rhythm 

E   g      d       e    d       c

Of  my crying  guitar

G g*             a        b      c a       g
Until  my  true   love  is  found

 G g        g     g   a     b   g
With  words  so  kind  as  in  my  dreams

Gg       ff        ff          f’       g’       e’   c
Where  I  can  find…

And challenge all his utmost love

Cc    f    f      f        g      f         e
Playing my crying guitar

As  I  watch  you  in  silence

For true love to be found

The tune has a certain meloncholy, punctuated by the piano like raindrops on the roof. I wish I could hear the guitar as in George Harrison's, As My Guitar Gently Weeps.
