Jeff Buckley - Lilac Wine (Track 04 - 'Grace' album)
This is virtually the same as most other Lilac Wine tabs I've seen on the net, except I
it to make it easier to play so you can focus more on the incredible vocals!  I made it
you're going to miss some of the little complexities that Jeff Buckley adds to the
but this is an OK version I hope will be of use to people!
Please don't flame me, I know it's not the perfect version, that's the point!

Capo - 3rd fret

I lost myself on a cool damp night
Gave myself in that misty light
B7                  Am
Was hypnotized by a strange delight
B7            Em
Under a lilac tree
I made wine from the lilac tree
Put my heart in its recipe
It makes me see what I want to see...
B7                    Em
And be what I want to be
Em7                     A
When I think more than I want to think
Am                       Em
Do things I never should do
Em7                     A
I drink much more than I ought to drink
Am                       E       B7
Because I brings me back you...

E      E7
E     E7      A         B7             E
Lilac wine is sweet and heady, like my love
A     Bm E  A         Bm     E
Lilac wine, I feel unsteady, like my love
C                            B7
Listen to me... I cannot see clearly
B7                          F#m7     B7
Isn't that she coming to me nearly here?

E     E7       A         B7      E        E7
Lilac wine is sweet and heady, wheres my love?
A      Bm E A          Bm    E
Lilac wine, I feel unsteady, wheres my love?
C                                  B7
Listen to me, why is everything so hazy?
B7                                F#m7   B7
Isnt that she, or am I just going crazy, dear?

E     E7     A       B7     E      E7
Lilac wine, I feel unready, for my love
           A    Am    B7       E
I feel unready       for my love...
