Abm                     Ebm
I left my country when i was nineteen
Abm   Ebm
1925
Abm                          Ebm
And drifted to a town on the Cuban coast
Abm                       Ebm
Met a woman who became my life
Abm           Ebm
And oh when i saw her
Abm           Ebm
Darkness fled from me
Abm                      Ebm
And flew like a blackbird into the sun
Abm                   Ebm
On the day she married me
    Abm    Ebm
Dear god
    Abm
Dear god
     Abm            Ebm      Abm    Ebm
I remember climbing up those shoulders
Abm             Ebm       Abm  Ebm
Coming up under you like a lion
Abm        Ebm      Abm    Ebm
Coming down like we were dying
       Abm   Ebm
Dear god
Abm         Ebm       Abm      Ebm
But now the drumbirds come for me
Abm         Ebm       Abm     Ebm
Oh now the drumbirds come for me
Abm         Ebm
Lord give me forgiveness
Abm             Ebm
For all that i've done
Abm                   Ebm
Forgive me now of the weight i bear
    Abm          Ebm
Don't keep me on the run
       Abm   Ebm
Dear god
       Abm   Ebm
Dear god
      Abm           Ebm      Abm    Ebm
I remember climbing up those shoulders
Abm             Ebm       Abm  Ebm
Coming up under you like a lion
Abm        Ebm      Abm    Ebm
Coming down like we were dying
       Abm
Dear god
