Key: 

Intro: C / / / / / / / Fm/C / / / / / / / Db/Ab / / / Eb(add9)/Bb / / / C F G C F G C Church bells ring out morning glory when summer bends to the winter's rage. Am F G C Am F G C F/G - Am7 Emily walks through the cemetery. Passed a dog in an unmarked grave. C F G C F G C The old girl hobbles, nylons sagging. Talks to her sisters in the ground Am F G C Am F G Am G/B I saw a lie in the mirror this morning. I heard a prophecy all around.
F/C C Fm/C Db/Ab Eb/Bb Dm7/F And Em-i-ly - they come and go. The shadows - and the distant sounds. F/C C Fm/C Db/Ab Eb/Bb Dm7/F C F But Em-i-ly - don't be afraid. When the weight of angels weighs you down.
C F G C F G C Emily prays to a faded hero in a little frame clutched to her gown. Am F G C Hears the voice of promise in his memory. Am F G C F/G - Am7 Tonight's the night they let the ladder down. C F G C F G C In a cage sits a gold canary by a wicker chair and a rosewood loom. Am F G C Am F G Am G/B As a soul ascends aboard the evening, Canary sings to an empty room. {Repeat REFRAO}
