Song by Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds


Capo on 3rd fret


Intro:

| Em |  Em | Em | Em |

Em
I stepped out of the St. James Hotel 
Em
I left you behind curled up like a child 
B                 B7 
A change is gonna come 
                          Em
And as the door whispered shut

I walked on down the high windowed hall 

Em
You lay sleeping on the unmade bed 
Em
The weatherman on the television 
                  B
In the St. James Hotel said that 
                     B7
The rains are gonna come 
              Em
And I stepped out on the streets 
Em                                           
All sparkling clean with the early morning dew 

C                   D
Maybe it was you or maybe it was me? 
    Am                          Em
You came on like a punch in the heart 
C                    D
Lying there with the light on your hair 
       B7
Like a Jesus of the moon
                               Em
A Jesus of the planets and the stars 

| Em |  Em | Em | Em |

Em
Well, I kept thinking about what the weatherman said 
Em
And if the voices of the living can be heard by the dead 
     B                   B7   
Well, the day is gonna come 
                Em
When we find out in some kind of way 
Em
I take a little comfort from that now and then

Em
'Cause people often talk about being scared of change 
Em                                   B 
But for me I'm more afraid of things staying the same 
           B7
'Cause the game is never won 
   Em
By standing in any one place for too long

C                   D
Maybe it was you or maybe it was me? 
          Am                            Em
There's a chord in you that I could not find to strike 
C                            D
You lying there with all the light in your hair 
       B
Like a Jesus of the moon
B7                     Em 
A Jesus of the planets and the stars 

| Em |  Em | Em | Em |

Instrumental:
| Em |  Em | Em | Em |

| B |  B7 | Em | Em |

Em
I see the many girls walking down the empty streets 
Em
Maybe once or twice one of them smiles at me 
B                 B7
You can't blame anyone 
Em
For saying hello I say hey, I say hello, I say hello 

C                D
Will it be me or will it be you? 
Am                      Em
One must stay and one depart 
C                          D
You lying there in the St. James Hotel bed 
       B
Like a Jesus of the moon
  B7                   Em 
A Jesus of the planets and the stars
Em 
I say hello, hello, hello
