Intro: D A7 D A7 D A7 Bm7 Gsus2 Verse D A7 I woke up this morning D A7 Same old questions in my head D A7 At least the weather's getting cooler now Bm7 Gsus2 No longer forced to leave my bed D A7 The sun shines through my window D A7 Makes my old house creak and moan D A7 Reminds me of the old lady down the market Dm7 Gsus2 Sitting in the sun, stretching her weary bones
G A G A And I'll leave the light on G A So you can see G A G A I'll leave the light on G A7 Should you decide to visit me
Verse D A7 D A7 Time is time and time is time and time just rolls along D A7 It's with you every second Bm7 Gsus2 Though it has no shape or form D A7 Sometimes I get so anxious D A7 As your path leads you away D A7 But I know it's only my loneliness Bm7 Gsus2 And it passes with the day Verse D A7 I've been an angry and a jealous man D A7 And I have no right to be D A7 Perhaps it's just my wicked, wicked ways Bm7 Gsus2 Catching up to me D A7 Still I've done my time and I've paid the price D A7 After all what's just a little pain D A7 If I learn from my mistakes Bm7 Gsus2 Then my loss becomes my gain
G A G A Still I'll leave the light on G A So you can see G A G A I'll leave the light on G A Should you decide G A D11 C#m Bm A G D/F# A7 Should you decide to visit me
Verse D A7 This is the end that is no end D A7 With the beginning yet to come D A7 I'm going to throw the doors wide open Bm7 Gsus2 I'm going to let my spirit run D A7 I'm going to take the path that is most yielding D A7 And in time my steps shall disappear D A7 I'll pound my head against the wall no more Bm7 Gsus2 I'll be still so I can hear Verse D A7 And if I drop all my pretensions D A7 About how much you broke my heart D A7 I really do feel grateful Bm7 Gsus2 As we drift further apart D A7 I will follow my distant vision D A7 I'm going to listen to my voice D A7 You showed me the way to freedom Bm7 Gsus2 G A You really made the only choice
G A And so you see G A G A I'll leave the light on G A Should you decide G A D11 Should you ever decide to visit me
End C#m Bm A G D/F# A7 D*
