	With the wool over my eyes
	        Am7               D7   /C      B7

	   C                  D              G      A
	I see it all through rose-coloured glasses
	            D                  G   G7/B

		    [2: rose       (to solo)]
	            [3: (to coda)]
Verse 2:

	It's a funny sort of haze
	All full of dreams of yesterdays
	And the dreams are so real you could cry
	And you know the grass is green
	On the side you've never seen
	And the thought is what helps you get by

[repeat chorus]

Guitar solo [2X]:

	Gm/Bb     F/A     Fm/Ab     C/G
	  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /

	Gm/Bb     F/A     Fm/Ab      C   CG
	  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /

Verse 3:

	As I grow a little more
	And wonder what this all is for
	And the brass ring is slipping away
	I will keep the glasses near
	Maybe shed a quiet tear
	Maybe smile inside as I say

[repeat chorus]

[repeat guitar solo; end cold on G]
