                This is how I play this song, it sounds fantastic played as solo acoustic and also great 
with the original.

The strumming pattern is for you to improvise or recreate from the original record.

VERSE

   I sing myself to sleep, a song from the darkest hour

A----2-----------------------7--------------9-----------------------------|
E----0-----------------------5--------------7-----------------------------|

   Secrets I cant keep, inside of the day,
   Swing from high to deep, extremes of sweet and sour,
   Hope that God exists, I hope I pray....

   Drawn by the undertow my life is out of control,
   I believe this wave will bear my weight so let it flow...

CHORUS

Oh sit down, oh sit down, oh sit down, sit down next to me

   Sit down,  down,  down,  down,  down..      In sympathy.

REPEAT VERSE

Now I'm relieved to hear, that you've been to some far out places,
Its hard to carry on, when you feel all alone,
Now Ive swung back down again, its worse than it was before,
If I hadn't seen such riches, I could live with being poor,

REPEAT CHORUS

Oh sit down, oh sit down, oh sit down, sit down next to me,
Sit down, down, down, down, down, in sympathy.

REPEAT VERSE QUIETLY

Those who feel the breath of sadness (sit down next to me),
Those who find they're touched by madness (sit down next to me),
Those who find themselves ridiculous (sit down next to me),
In love, in fear, in hate, in tears,
In love, in fear, in hate, in tears,
In love... in fear... in hate... in tears,
In love, in fear, in hate, in tears...

Down................
Down................

REPEAT CHORUS

Oh sit down, oh sit down, oh sit down, sit down next to me,
Sit down, down, down, down, down, in sympathy.

Oh sit down, oh sit down, oh sit down, sit down next to me,
Sit down, down, down, down, down, in sympathy.

Finish on a powerful E chord, simple as that!
