Tuning:EADGBe (capo 3rd)

This is somewhat similiar to the other version but I hope this ones a bit more
comprehensive. And this one covers the "Oh, how they come and go" bit whereas
the other one doesn't. This is quite a tough song to play rythmically speaking,
its in 5/4 time and starts on an anacrusis. One way I recommend on learning this
song properly is to sing along to it, this forces you to keep time better.

Intro: Cadd9/G

Verse 1: Cm9/G                  Bbm add11
       Betty camd by on her way
                                Ab
       Said she had a word to say
                          Cadd9/G
       about things today        and fallen leaves
       Cm9/G                         Bbm add11
       Said she hadn't heard the news
                                    Ab
       Hadn't had the time to choose
                     Cadd9/G
       A way to lose,       but she believes.

         Cm9/G                     Bb add11
Verse 2: Going to see the river man
                                   Ab
         Going to tell him all I can
                       Cadd9/G
         About the plan       for lilac time
         Cm9/G                      Bb add11
         If he tells me all he knows
                                    Ab
         About the way his river flows
                             (C7b5)
                            |002040|
         And all night shows      in the summertime

Instrumental section: Ab  Cadd9/G  Ab  Cadd9/G

Repeat verse 1 for 3 and verse 2 for 4.

Verse 3: Betty said she prayed today
         For the sky to blow away
         Or maybe stay, she wasn't sure
         For when she thought of summer rain
         Calling for her mind again 
         She lost the pain and stayed for more.

Verse 4: Going to see the river man 
         Going to tell him all I can
         About the ban, on flying free
         If he tells me all he knows
         About the way his river flows
         I don't suppose it's meant for me.

        (C13/G)
Outro:  |004020| 
        Oh, how they come and go       (C7b5/G)
        Cm9/G                 Cadd9/G  |002040| 
        Oh, how they come and go        (Fine)
