[Intro]

G      A  A7

D  G  F#m  A


[Verse 1]
D         G          F#m
It was late last night
    A                 D
And all the band were sleeping
       G         F#m       A
It was late last night
D         G          F#m
I was listening to
       A           D
To the generators humming
       G            F#m
To the tent-zipping drunk
          A
Quipping, guy-rope tripping

D  G  F#m  A


[Verse 2]
D          G         F#m
And in the gathering dew
      A          D
I was lucid as a floodlight
      G           F#m      A
I was thinking of you
D           G         F#m
But now I'm back here before you
        A             D
You can see me shaking
            F#m       A
Cos in that moment I knew
       A            A            A
I just knew, I just knew, I just knew


[Verse 3]
D     G            F#m
Forty seasons have flown
        A                 D
Since I first sat down beside you
     G            F#m        A
In a crowd on our own
    D       G            F#m
And how one person could thrill me
    A7            D
Occupy me and fulfil me
        G          F#m
I could never have known
        A     A    A
I could never have known


[Chorus]
G                       A
How in the first of our autumns
         A7        Em
We'd be falling so steeply
                     A
We could share so completely
G                       A
How in the third of our summers
          A7            Em
When you first tried to leave me
                    A
You could cut me so deeply
        A7         A7
I could never have known

D  Daug  D  Daug  G  Gaug


[Bridge]
D         Daug       D
And on my wilderness journeys
          Daug          G
With your compass still in me
        Gaug          D
All the shelters were empty
            Daug       D
Through the longest of winters
       Daug           G
When I called you downriver
        Gaug       G
But you gave me no answer
      A             Bm
And I feared for my mind
          G              Bm
Until the first signs of springtime
         G          Bm
You were sick and I saw you
        A
And how much you'd missed me
Em         G        Em
Now in our eleventh autumn
        G               Em
You are blonde from the summer
        G            A
And I'm back here before you
        A7     A       
And you see me shaking

G  A  Em  A


[Chorus]
G                       A
Will you go with me, my love?

From here together
Em                     A
From this quiet rented house
G                       A
Will you go with me, my love?

To face together
Em                   A         A7 
Every rise and every slow decline
Em               Bm
Will you go with me
        F#m            Em
Through dream and fantasy?


[Outro]
G             A  Bm
Through the open fields
    F#m         Em
And tangled valleys?
G                D
Will you go with me
        F#m            Em
Through grief and ecstasy?
G               A  Bm
And every shade be-tween
    F#m          Em
The cold morning stars
        A    A7   G       Bm
And the deep blue sea
