C#       B            F#          B        C#     B
I was surprised, i was happy for a day in 1975

Bbm           Abm          F#                   B        C#     B
i was puzzled by a dream, it stayed with me all day in 1995

Bbm        Abm            F#
my brother had confessed that he was gay

   B                 C#              B
it took the heat off me for a while

Bbm                 Abm
he stood up with a sailor friend

    F#            B               C#           B
and made it known upon my sisters wedding day


Chorus ("they dont seem to mind"...go to end of G#m, then chorus):

I gave myself to sin

    Bbm                       E
and i've been there and back again

i gave myself to providence the state i am in
