[ Tab from: ]
Em        Em7
Sunday is gloomy;
C#m7b5       Am
My hours are slumberless.
Em           Am6/9
Dearest, the shadows
A#dim7          B7
I live with are numberless.
Little white flowers
Am7         B7
Will never awaken you;
G             Am6/9
Not where the black coach of
A#dim7       B7
Sorrow has taken you.

Em          Em7
Angels have no thought
C#m7b5      Am
Of ever returning you.
Em          Am6/9
Would they be angry
A#dim7      B7
If I thought of joining you?

             Gloomy Sunday

Em        Em7
Gloomy is Sunday;
C#m7b5            Am
With shadows I spend it all.
My heart and I
Have decided to end it all.
Soon there'll be candles
C                    B7
And prayers that are said, I know.
G           C#m7b5
Let them not weep;
C                     B7
Let them know that I'm glad to go.

Em          EmM7
Death is no dream,
Em7                 Emadd6
For in death I'm caressing you.
With the last breath of my soul
F#m7             B7
I'll be blessing you.

Am   Adim7    Em
        Gloomy Sunday
