                Song For Adam                                           Capo: 1.B

Intro: A   F    C   F   C  G  A  A

Verse 1:
A                 C                F
Though Adam was a friend of mine, I did not know him well
         C    C/B      A      G        F
He was alone into his distance, He was deep into his well
         C     C/B           A      G      F
I could guess what he was laughing at, But I couldn't really tell
          A      G         A      G             F                A
Now the story's told that Adam jumped, But I'm thinking that he fell

Verse 2:
A                 C             F
Together we went travelling, as we received the call
      C    C/B    A      G    F
His destination India, and I had none at all
         C     C/B       A      G      F
Well I still remember laughing, with our backs against the wall
     A      G         A      G     F                    A   G
So free of fear we never thought, that one of us might fall

Chorus 1:
F                      C              F                          C
I sit before my only candle, but it's so little light to find my way
           F                       A
Now this story unfolds before my candle
           C                        G
Which is shorter every hour as it reaches for the day
        A                           G
Well I feel just like a candle in a way
                   F                   C   G   F   C     F  C  G
I guess I'll get there but I wouldn't say__  for sure

Verse 3:
       A                 C             F
When we parted we were laughing still, as our goodbyes were said
        C    C/B       A    G    F
And I never heard from him again, as each our lives we led
           C   C/B    A      G    F
except for once in someone else's letter that I read
  A      G         A      G     F                        A   G
Until I head the sudden word, that a friend of mine was dead

Chorus 2:
F                      C              F                      C
I sit before my only candle, like a pilgrim sits beside the way
           F                       A
Now this journey appears before my candle
       C                              G
as a song that's growing fainter, the harder I play
        A                           G
well I fear before I am I'll fade away
                      F                         C   G   F   C     F  C  G
But I guess I'll get there, though I wouldn't say___  for sure
 

Verse 4:
A                 C               F
Though Adam was a friend of mine, I did not know him long
          C   C/B     A        G        F
And when I stood myself beside him, I never thought I was as strong
          C      C/B      A       G       F
still it seemed he stopped his singing in the middle of his song
      A           G      A      G     F                    A   G
well I'm not the one to say I know but I'm hoping he was wrong

Chorus 3:
F                        C                  F                          C
I'm holding out my only candle, though it's so little light to find my way
           F                           A
now this story's been layed beneath my candle
           C                        G
and it's shorter every hour as it reaches for the day
        A                           G
yes I feel just like a candle in a way
                   F                   C   G   F   C     F  C  G
I hope I'll get there but I'll never pray

outro: A   A
