                INTRO:
F Fm C

VERSE:
    C              G            F                     C
I swear I heard a bird calling high in the chestnut trees
                 G           F                C
The sun was so bright, that bird I couldn't see
                    G      F                     C
No matter where I stood I couldn't see beak or wing
                         G       F                C
Just burning, blinding leaves, still and silent trees

CHORUS:
          C                E  
Were you with me then my friend? 
 F               C
Are you with me now?
                           E  
Were you with me then my friend? 
 F               Fm  C
Are you with me now?

VERSE:
  C                G         F             C
When that cement truck, the mixer turning slow
             G        F              C
Drove right past me dripping in the road
F                   C  G/B     Am
That swollen body spinning in circles
    Dm                    Am    F         C
I stopped and watched it roll, roll and groan

CHORUS:
          C                E  
Were you with me then my friend? 
 F               C
Are you with me now?
                           E  
Were you with me then my friend? 
 F               Fm  C
Are you with me now?

VERSE:
         C              G      F           C
When I swam alone that night, late summer dusk
                      G         F              C
The air so warm and still, the water wide and dark
F                                  C          G/B        Am
Something brushed against me, I splashed and kicked in fright
Dm               Am       F          C    G
Such cold hands upon me, underwater vines

CHORUS:
          C                E  
Were you with me then my friend? 
 F               C
Are you with me now?
                           E  
Were you with me then my friend? 
 F               Fm  
Are you with me now?
