Bm
Ribbons of love
       A            Bm
please keep me true sane
Em                        Bm
until I reach home on the morrow
Bm             A       Bm
never never to wander again
    Em                    Bm
I'm weak and I'm weary of sorrow


D
London to Dublin
   A         Bm
Australia to Perth
  Em
I gazed at your sky
  G           Bm
I tasted your earth
G
sung out my heart
    A           Bm
for what it was worth
Em                  Bm
never again shall I ramble

..progression is the same for the rest of the song (verse-chorus-verse-chorus..)

There's nowhere left
in this world where to go
my arms, my legs they're a-tremblin'
thoughts both clouded and blue as the sky
not even worth the rememberin'

Now as I stumble
and reel to my bed
all that I've done
all that I've said
means nothin' to me
I'd soon as be dead
all of this world be forgotten

No words of comfort
no words of advice
nothin' to offer a stranger
gone the love, gone the spite
it just doesn't matter no longer

My sky's getting far
the ground's gettin' close
my self goin' crazy
the way that it does
I'll lie on my pillow
and sleep if I must
Too late to wish I'd been stronger
too late to wish I'd been stronger

I've been playing this song real regular since Jan. 1. I do it a bit
different from what Robert has posted, so here goes:

capo 2nd fret, chords shown are as if no capo was used. ie: Am = Bm, C = D,
etc.

Townes Van Zandt

Am                     G            Am
Ribbons of love please keep me true sane
F             C           Am
until I reach home on the morrow
Am             G      Am
never never to wander again
    F            C        Am
I'm weak and I'm weary of sorrow

C                     G        Am
London to Dublin, Australia to Perth
  F                    C           Am
I gazed at your sky, I tasted your earth
F                     C           Am
sung out my heart for what it was worth
G                   Am
never again shall I ramble

The rest is as Robert wrote:

my self goin' crazy

and sleep if I must
Too late to wish I'd been stronger
too late to wish I'd been stronger

Remember, there's more than one way to play a song.  The right way is what
works for you.  ;-)

Townes wrote a lot of songs. I think he wrote this one for himself.

Thanks Townes...
