CAPO: 4th Fret



INTRO: C  F  Am7  G  C  (3x)  F  Am7  G

                  C
I walked out on a Winter night
  G               C
I felt like I was driven
  G                        Am
A bundle tucked beneath my arm
  F             G
A dept to be forgiven


                            C
I turned up 14th Street and Pine
 G                          Am
Above the distant traffic's roar
F                              C
Reached a crest and dropped my bag
        G                 C
I won't be your secret anymore


INTERLUDE: F  Am7  G  C   F  Am7  G 


                    C
I lit a fire on the hill
G                       C
Winter snow had drifted high
G                              Am
Watched the smoke from letters spill
  F                         G
Into the ink-black midnight sky


                                 C
Your words were mingled with the stars
      G                      Am
Every line you wrote that I adored
F                         C
Time has come for this to end
        G                 C
I won't be your secret anymore


INTERLUDE: F  Am7  G  C   F  Am7  G 


                               C
I next threw on the things you gave
G                             C
All of those well thought out gifts
     G                    Am
They were enfolded in the blaze
     F                           G
They turned to smoke and up they drift


                   C
Photographs and poetry
      G                        Am
Those chimes I hung outside my door
  F                  C
Reduced to ashen memory
        G                 C
I won't be your secret anymore


INSTRUMENTAL: C  F  Am7  G  C  F  Am7  G  Am7  G  C  F  Am7  G 


                        C
I stayed until the fire died
         G                C
That was shortly after sunrise
  G                     Am
I tried to burn the memories
    F                            G
But they still smouldered deep inside


                               C
Slaves, they say, revere their chains
G                       Am
Prisoners fear the open door
     F                         C
I'll hope someday that I'll be free
        G                 C
I won't be your secret anymore
