The Last Time I Cried Chords

(Version #1)
Chris De Burgh
Intro:
Dm C Dm C Dm

     Dm
The last time I cried, I was sitting home,
            C
And it was deep in the night,
  Bb                             Dm
Staring at the shadows and the flickering lights,
                   Am                 Dm
Giving all that I had, to take them away,
                   C                 Dm
Giving all that I had, to make them pay,

     Dm
The last time I cried, I could see the people,
       C
Long ago in the rain,
 Bb                              Dm
Waiting as the soldiers put them all on a train,
                      Am                     Dm
And the hands on the bars, the eyes full of tears,
                     C                    Dm
And the word is the same, for a thousand years,

  Bb              C                 Bb    F
Eli Eli Lama, oh Lord, you have forsaken me,
  Dm       Bb     C                Bb C   Dm
Eli Eli Lama, oh Lord, you have forsaken me,

     Dm
The last time I cried, I could not believe it,
        C
When I held on a face,
  Bb                           Dm
Staring at a soldier with his gun in the rain,
                       Am                    Dm
It was the face of a child, my child here asleep,
                      C                  Dm
And the soldier who smiled, the man was me,

  Bb              C                 Bb    F
Eli Eli Lama, oh Lord, you have forsaken me,
  Dm       Bb      C              Bb C   Dm C Dm C Dm
Eli Eli Lama, oh why, have you forsaken me?
  Bb              C                Bb C   Dm
Eli Eli Lama, oh Lord, you have forsaken me,

      Dm                     Bb
 The last time I cried, the last time I cried,
C     Dm                     Bb               C Dm Bb C Dm Bb
 The last time I cried, the last time I cried,
C     Dm               Bb
 The last time I cried, 
C     Dm               Bb
 The last time I cried, 
C     Dm               Bb
 The last time I cried, 
C     Dm               Bb
 The last time I cried, 
      C        Dm
 The last time,
