C5 Here it was they lit the flame. D5 Here they sang about `tomorrow' E5 A5 And tomorrow never came. C5 C5 F5 From the table in the corner C5 F5 Bb5 They could see a world reborn Ab5 Ab5 Eb5 And they rose with voices ringing Bb5 A5 I can hear them now! D5 D5 Bb5 The very words that they had sung G5 G5 F5 Became their last communion C5 C5 A5 On the lonely barricade at dawn. A5 Oh my friends, my friends forgive me C5 That I live and you are gone. D5 There's a grief that can't be spoken. E5 C#5 There's a pain goes on and on. C#5 Phantom faces at the window. E5 Phantom shadows on the floor. F#5 Empty chairs at empty tables Ab5 C#5 Where my friends will meet no more. C#5 Oh my friends, my friends, don't ask me E5 What your sacrifice was for F#5 Empty chairs at empty tables Ab5 C#5 C#5 C#5 C#5 Where my friends will sing no more.
