 All twinklin' lee,
              Bb
Can't see the right rose,

'Cos heaven lives on.
            Bb
Greet-I-eth slave men,
                 Gm
Will look with a scorn,
                    Eb
With a transplanted heart,
F (n.c)
 (Yes, how quick,

They had to part),

(They had to part).

Verse 2:

       Bb
The re-membrance,
      Gm
Of to-day,

 Oh (...part), oh yeah.

On the edge of my mind.

Down through my life,
