Verse 1:
Bm                    D
  Got a message in my head
			       A
that the papers had all come
		      Bm
Richard Manuel is dead
			        D
and the daylight's comin' on
				        A
I've been wandering through the dark
			      Bm    (B) (C#) D
now I'm standing on the lawn

Chorus:
                 A      Bm     D
If I could give all my love to you
                  A
I could justify myself
        G                D
but I'm just not coming through
                           A
You're a pill to ease the pain
             G             D
of all the stupid things I do
             (C#)    Bm
I'm an anchor on the line
                          G
of a clock that tells the time
                       A   G   D  (play first 1/2 of intro riff over A
G D)
that is running out on you


Verse 2:
Bm                    D
  It was cold when I awoke
                        A
and the day was halfway done
                         Bm
Nearly spring in San Francisco
                      D
and I cannot feel the sun
                          A
You were sleeping next to me
                         Bm   (B) (C#) D
but I knew that you'd be gone


Repeat Chorus


Lead-in to solo:
E-|------------------------------|
B-|------------------------------|
G-|------------------------------|
D-|------------------------------|
A-|------------------------------|
E-|----4~--5------4~--5-4-5-6~---|7

Solo chords: (key of A, I think)
Bm D A E
Bm D A G D


Verse 3:
Bm                          D
  Take some time before you go
                           A
To think of Mondays coming down
                        E
and the people that you knew
                           Bm
and the ones that aren't around
                          D
You've been fading day to day
                          Bm    D
I've been moving town to town

Repeat Chorus twice
(skip the intro riff between these repeats)
End with a variation on Riff 1 (it's a really easy variation)
